The clams in wine and garlic were outrageously good. The fish is fresh and well-prepared. We waited almost an hour but the clams made it worth the wait.

This place is take out and casual restaurant. They owe several restaurants on the island. However, I have NEVER had a better meal than at the restaurant Last week bought swordfisdh and bought it home. It was moist and so tasty. Coleslaw is good too....can not go wrong.

We usually stop here for take out, the fish is fresh and there is a nice variety. We have eaten both lunch and dinner here as well, it's a little noisy but the food is well prepared and the service is quick. Nice for a family.

We walked into this place around 3:00 pm because it was a block away from our beach rental and we heard it gets crowded fast. Its a nice casual dining room with a super friendly staff. It only has about 10 -12 tables but the wait was worth it. The seafood is fresh, tasty and not too overpriced. The seafood... More

This is probably my favorite seafood spot on LBI. Quick staff and fresh food make for a good combo. Depending on the time you visit there may be a wait as the seating section is small. But it is worth the visit.

Had lobsters rolls to go from here and they were as expected delicious. They weren't overly large and came with either fries or cole slaw but the chunks of lobster overflowing in the roll made this a definite must if you are in the area. This place sits along the main drag of LBI and is quite small since it... More

We ate from here two nights in a row - once take out from the menu and once we bought fish and grilled it at home. Both times were very very fresh and great quality food. I had the stuffed flounder take out and it was delicious. My husband liked the crab cakes. The second night we had grouper and... More
