Saturday evening, looking forward to a nice meal, and checked here to see where to go & what is good. So mud city it is. We sat down next to a closed off glass door, and noticed it was just filthy between the word railing and the glass door. So, we order, (the staff was just super nice) The new... More

First off we were seated at a small table and there was almost no one in the restaurant, all the other patrons were seated at 4 tops and were couples. We arrived at 4:15 pm so the place would not be busy as to avoid a wait. I ordered fish and chips, my wife the fried seafood combo. We noticed... More

Very crowded since this place is on the mainland (over the bridge from LBI). Great eats, if you can spare to wait a while.

You can order eat-in or take out, with the take-out being cooked OR with instructions for home-cooking. Delicious offerings; however, be aware most of the seafoods offered are meant to be deep fried. Instructions do include recipes for pan-frying. Costs less than seafood restaurant so fool your guests and let them think you made everything by yourself!

I'd give this spot a 3.5 out of 5. Crab cakes will be to most people's liking but for a Baltimore native, I'm a little picky. Prices are decent - high for the Forked River crowd but not high overall. Nice spot - nice people - decent food. If you are having company and want to pick up some seafood... More

My family eat here often. They have great seafood at reasonable prices. The wait staff are friendly and efficient. The restaurant is small but usually their are seats available especially in the winter.

Glad to find this year-round Mud City! Food and staff were awesome! We ordered a crab cake sandwich and single crab cake with onion rings, which were plentiful and HUGE! Delicious apple crisp topped off the meal. Would highly recommend. Suggest you go there hungry. The portions are huge!
