Top notch seafood in south jersey.

The cook is very skilled and reliable. The dishes are presented very well and taste even better. An outstanding place for special occasions or just a romantic dinner. The crowd is a tad bit older for im always the youngest there, not a negative remark though.

Enjoyed the broiled fish platter that was delicious and included a small lobster tail. Dish was approximately 25.00. Due to allergies a member of our party had it seasoned a different way. Waitress was helpful and friendly. Doesn't look like much from the outside but is decorated beach chic on the inside. Both tables and booths are available. Also BYOB.

Nice little seafood restaurant attached to seafood market. Great service and good prices. BYOB. We have eaten here with friends and family. Celebrated my daughter's birthday and had a great time. Stopped in earlier in day to reserve a larger table.

Six of us enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner with friendly service. We started with fried calamari and clams on the half shell. Both were fresh and tasty. Then, four of us enjoyed the broiled seafood combination, one enjoyed fried shrimp and steak and another enjoyed the lobster and crab sautee. Every item was tasty and came to the table hot.... More

This is the second time we have gone here. I always feel you need to give a place a second chance. All I can say is average. An okay place to eat but over priced for what you get. We all got the broiled seafood combination. Mine was floating in butter. I sent it back and you could see all... More

Literally a great - little place. Great food – very good with reasonable portions. Little place – Very tiny, plan on waiting for a table on any given weekend, but if you can get there on a week day it worth the trip.

What a great place! Nice nautical decor & comfortable inside. The food & service was excellent. The appetizers-awesome-especially the buffalo shrimp. Everyone at Mom's 90th dinner raved about their food-you couldn't ask for better. Perfect Restaurant --highly recommend it. You can tell that the owner and the staff take pride in the quality of the food and the great service.... More
