Glad I tried Them again.

I was a longtime fan of Pinky's up until 3 years ago. Meals became substandard and downright blah. I tried them again this past weekend and much to my delight it was delicious! I had the fish tacos which had just enough kick to it and was perfectly cooked. My dining mates were thrilled with their... read more

Love Pinky Shrimps, Had the Crab Cakes, they're the best you'll have anywhere! Nice and close to beach, went and swam after lunch.

Not cheap, not overpriced. Like Goldilocks, it's just right. I had the fried scallops with fries and apple sauce. Scallops were fresh and delicious. Others in my party had fried shrimp, lobster, crab stuffed mushrooms (I don't like mushrooms but was told these were delicious), lobster, and jambalaya. It's BYOB, and there is a bar across the street where you... More

We tried this place based on so many people telling us to try it. Its great in the fact that there are picnic table to eat outside which for some reason is hard to find on LBI. We were a littler surprised by the prices compared to the other seafood places we had been to on LBI. However once we... More

Very close to the house we rented - ordered food to eat on the beach a few days during the week. Fried clams were a hit with our group - can't go wrong!

We always make it a point to take out a delicious seafood dinner from Pinky's. It is consistently reliable for the best seafood I've eaten on the Jersey shore. We've tried almost everything on the menu, and have yet to be disappointed.

While traveling to the Jersey coast my wife and I decided we wanted some fresh seafood and decided to try Pinky Shrimp's. We split an order of large shrimp cocktail and a crab cake dinner. Both were really good and enough to fill both of us up. It was not cheap, about $55 for the food and 2 bottles of... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Their menu is extensive for a place that small with no wait staff. This last trip we ordered the jambalaya and the coconut shrimp, which we inhaled, that was how good they were. It's a good location because there's lots of parking handy, it's an easy... More

We stop here several times during our yearly trips to LBI. It's usually pretty crowded for dinner, but well worth the wait. The food is delicious, we usually end up ordering a huge mix of everything because no one can decide what they like best. The fresh seafood selection is great as well.

This is a great place for reasonably priced take-out seafood. . . Very friendly and accommodating service. And for those NON-seafood lovers they offer a cleverly named dish "Because your Chicken and Ribs". You will not be disappointed every meal is fresh and made to perfection!
