Went to celebrate anniversary dinners with family. You won't be disappointed! We had the fish (halibut) and chips -- awesome; salmon salad and shrimp salads--again, wonderful. And soft shell crabs. All delicious AND the service was superb! But get there early. We got there at 5pm on a Thursday nite and right afterwards, the line had already started forming. Definitely... More

In late July, not sure of the exact date. However, myself and my wife arrived late in Long Beach Island and we were looking for a place to grab a quick bite. Well we came upon The shell fish Co. What a wonderful place. When we arrived we came to find out that they don't except credit cards only cash.... More

Easily overlooked by new visitors to LBi, Harvey Cedars Shellfish co is a local gem. Among the best things on the menu are the mussels which are as good as you can get anywhere. Avoid the fried stolid unless that's really your thing. It's worth the wait and there is always a wait.

We go to this restaurant at least once a year when we are at our house on LBI, and in contrast to other reviewers, we have not been disappointed. This year my wife and I each had the tuna blue. It was cooked medium rare, just as we asked, and came with a delicious ear of fresh-picked Jersey corn. It... More

A little expensive but mostly worth it would recommend if you want a good seafood experience with your family. Plus next to a bar!

This is a very good seafood restaurant churning out high quality, simple food. We were here last week and have eaten here the last time we visited LBI 4 years ago. What we all remembered and clamored to have again were the sautéed mussels which are the best i've ever had. The Calamari vera cruz was excellent and contrary to... More

The food here is ok. That's not the issue. The issue is the staff and the service. First of all, this is a seafood restaurant so a lot of the food is messy. The waitress never brought us napkins. Ever. Despite asking several times. She never refilled any of our drinks. Despite us asking several times. My daughter is 5... More

We got a seafood feast for take out. Everything was excellent quality. The only down fall is they fry their crab cakes, however the night we went they had baked crab cakes on special. They do only take cash which should be noted. We will be back next year time we come to LBI

I really struggled with how to rate this restaurant. First, there is a parking lot across the street. When you drive by the restaurant, there are four parking spots out front and no other parking areas. We called them and they told us to park across the street. The restaurant is half sit-down, half market. The sit-down area has six... More
