Seafood

Went with a party of 20, we called in ahead and the food was ready for the group. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. Strictly take out unless you eat at the picnic benches outside (which our group did). Would go there again, but there are a lot of seafood places on LBI which are just as good.

We've been coming to LBI for about 30 years. Pinky's is a perennial favorite. The choices are extensive, uniformly excellent (very tasty), very generous portions. The Jambalaya was excellent (plenty for two meals), and the strip was plentiful

We found the ad for Pinky's Shrimp in the local rag paper with its menu and prices. (I hate it when restaurants advertise their menu but don't put prices.) We had originally intended to go out for dinner but decided to eat at our hotel on the balcony. I am so glad we went to Pinky's Shrimp. It made our... More

I've been coming to LBI on and off for years and pinky has always been the best place to go and this time was no different from the rest. I had the shrimp scampi which came with a delicious side salad! My daughter had the clamp strip which were also very tasty as well!

This place looks like a dive - but it's a gem. Their prices are reasonable, both for the store (definitely get swordfish fliiets) or the takeout restaurant. Eating at the restaurant can be a challenge because there aren't many tables, but just get the food to go and enjoy at your own home. We get lobsters, mussels and swordfish every... More

This place rocks. Enjoyed a very delightful meal here recently. It's both a restaurant and a fresh seafood store. Very large menu with many tasty choices. Had the shrimp dinner platter. Tons of shrimp, I thinks it's a pound. Come with 2 sides. Again many tasty choices. There is no inside setting. Everything is outside. Or take it back to... More

Because there are limited tables and we had 8 people, we ordered in advanced and picked up the food. EVERY thing was great. The prices seemed a bit steep until I saw how large the portions were. If you don't have big eatters, you could easily get two meals out of one serving. Enjoy!

Went to Pinky Shrimps for the first time because I found other places on LBI way too expensive, I bought 5 swordfish fillets to make fish tacos, and the fish was delicious! The price per lb was $3 or $4 less than some others, and the staff was helpful and very friendly. I went out of my way to go... More

Had lunch there Friday and it was great! I had blackened Tuna steak on a roll. It was just delicious. Such great flavors and a big sandwich! My wife had the fried cod and she loved it. The kids split 1 lb of clam strips and they loved it. PINKY'S is the place!!!

We were a party of four. My sister has been dying to try this place. I ordered the crabcakes and did not like them. The others in my party had: crab claws (market price) catfish which was the best meal of the night. It was a large portion and tasty (perfect for hearty appetite) Coconut shrimp was also ordered and... More
