Tonight we went to Windjammer for their Happy Hour. Off season their Happy Hour is from 3 to 7. Arrived at 5:45 and quite a few cars in the lot. Most people were seated at tables and the bar had plenty of room. BTW, you must sit at the bar for Happy Hour prices. All appetizers are half price and... More

A visit to the shore cannot be complete without a night at Smittys! Over the past 15 years this little shack on the bay in Somers Point has become the hot spot. The menu is always full of fun things to eat, but the environment is what makes this experience great. The BYOB status is encouraged with long waits during... More

The soup here is great! It's a combo of red & white clam chowders. Scallops are fabulous, no matter what sauce you choose to go with. It's a BYOB. Also, a lot of people dont know this, but in the morning it's a breakfast shop in the back. Def have breakfast here, not at the Point Diner. The Point used... More

BYO, which is a pain, but to be honest, the best fish restaraunt I've been to in the States. The tuna in soy, ginger and wasabe was what you'd expect in a gourmet gaff asking four times the price

The sides are those you can choose with your entree. I like summer restaurants like these... There is a dining room, but if the line is too long..grab a seat at the bar when one opens and join in the conversation. It's a lively happening place, with lots of fresh fish entrees to choose from. I don't know anything about... More

We go several times a summer, mostly to sit at the counter for some raw clams- best you can get! And soup, also great! Service is always incredible fast and it's fun to BYOB and sit and wait for a spot while talking to other patrons. Always a good time!

Good seafood, nothing special about the preparation but generally fresh and tasty and very reasonably priced. No AC and long waits at dinnertime. For lunch there's generally no wait but many specials are only offered at dinnertime. Ultra casual.

This place is a hidden gem. They serve the best clam chowder outside of New England. The clams were so tender and corn was so fresh that the kernels burst with flavor in every bite. I just finished my cup and want to order more.

Just trying to keep the crowds down!......Awesome place, been going for 50 years since the old crotchity Smitty was alive and still the owner. Simple little place with great food and clams. Cash only and BYOB too. Wish they would expand some...maybe outside tables??
