We live very close to Island Shore and go or have take out at least 2x a month. It is that good. We usually have chicken low mein, general tso chicken, island chicken and round it out with wonton soup and scallion pancakes and steamed dumplings. The portions are all adequate and delicious. The general's chicken and island chicken both... More

As a local resident of Upper Township, I frequent this place several times a month. The food is always fresh and delicious. Never have had a bad thing from here. Chef Alan always is friendly and strikes up a conversation. Their daily lunch specials are an incredible value!!! The waitresses are wonderful too. Always enjoy our food from Island Shore.

Service was fast and very friendly. Food was delicious and very good portions for our lunch. Prices were great. $6.25 for shrimp and chicken with black sauce, Spring roll, and hot n sour soup. All taste great!! Can't write any more how super friendly and value. Not fancy. But awesome. Enjoyed very much.

As a resident of marmora I hesitate to contribute to more traffic congestion on Rt 9, but Island Shore already attracts more than local folk. Food, service, and pricing are outstanding, and chef Allan will custom make any thing you wish as each meal IS made fresh. Even during winter, this nice little restaurant has a steady stream of customers... More

Island Shore has excellent food and Chef Alan and his employees are always friendly and very accommodating. Vegetables are fresh and cooked just enough to be tender but crisp. Their steamed dumplings are fabulous as are their egg rolls and soups. One of Chef Alan's specialities is Shrimp of Marmora and one of my favorites. Noodles are covered in large... More

Just outside of Ocean City. We were pleasantly surprised at the diverse menu, great food and a BYOB to boot! More than just Chinese food. Various Asian inspired meals. Veggies cooked perfectly with just the right seasoning!

Island Shore or as I like to call it "One Hung Low" has the best steamed pork dumplings, egg rolls, and spare ribs I have ever eaten. I went there twice this summer and both times it was out of the ordinary chinese food. By that I mean it's way better than your typical P.F. Changs', Mr. Fongs', Mr. Woo... More

My family has been buying our Chinese food here for the last 15 years. The staff is so friendly! I love the pork and shrimp eggrolls. The sweet and sour sauce is the really good stuff, always has cherries and pineapples in it.

We ordered six meals delivered and each was very good. General Tso's chicken to shrine Lo-Mein were uniformly well prepared. Won Ton soup was very good. Not one poor selection. Six meals delivered for less than $60. And this in Ocean City! Great value, great food!
