Good food- Come early

Small neighborhood restaurant but very busy. Come early at 4pm and get your table or try later. Always filled with friendly people. If you like Italian style Seafood dishes or Italian food, come and experience Uncle Vinnie's food, you'll be glad you did. Fresh seafood at Uncle Vinnies Clam Bar... read more

When in Raritan, stop here. Fresh seafood, like seashore fresh. The calamari was fantastic and the shrimp were HUGE. Very small place, only six tables, so come early to get a seat. BYOB, which is great.

It's really a bar that serves food. Very nice vibe and crowd. We were warmly greeted on a packed Friday night. Since they don't take we had a drink at the bar. In spite of packed bar, the bartender got to us quickly. We got seated within 20 minutes. Liz our waitress was very good. The was a slight mix... More

Good, reasonably priced food with large portions in a bar setting is what this place is all about. There are certainly better (and more expensive) restaurants within a 5-10 miles radius of this place but the local vibe and very friendly staff will keep you coming back. This is not a fancy place by any stretch of the imagination but... More

This place is fabulous. You walk into a small place with about 8 tables. The menu is on a big board and you place your order. Whenever we are in the area we stop here to eat. It is by far the best place for seafood. We have had the cold seafood salad, the rapini , the soft shell crabs,... More

First of all (and I hate to tell), there was 40 min wait at the Clam bar and none here. BYOB here (so you come prepared). Effective and diligent service for great food and relatively large portions: salads can easily be split if you intend to finish your entree. Soft shell crabs with 2 sides were delicious. Shrimp oreganata were... More

We visit Uncle Vinnie's Market 2 or 3 times a month, normally for lunch. I feel a bit like another reviewer that said he was torn about reviewing this place because it is so good that if a lot of people "discover" it we might not be able to get a table! We normally split a seafood salad and then... More
