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!

Had dinner here last night.The best jersey crab cakes I've had,but not in the same league as the Baltimore crab cakes,especially those from the Lexington market.The service was excellent and the new england clam chowder was very good.Very nice little restaurant.

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

A little pricey but their seafood is very good. The crab cakes here are my favorite. I won't order them anywhere else.

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!

We have been here many times, never thought to review this place. We have always been for dinner, the place is VERY small, seating is limited, you might have to wait in a long line, every meal, and I mean every meal is wonderful, I had gumbo tonight and it's flavor could have come from the Big Ez! Last winter... More

There was only 3 people working (that we saw at least). The waitress was awesome multitasking by serving tables helping with take out orders and cleaning up. Everyone had a positive attitude and was very friendly. The food came out looking and tasting delicious. I would definitely come here again and recommend it to everyone.
