Shore atmosphere a little off the beaten path.

BYOB seafood restaurant with rustic atmosphere and a slightly limited menu. The food is all good though, and service is prompt. You have to try the lobster mac'n cheese...it's great.

I don't know where all these great reviews are coming from but we thought it was pretty bad. The food was not fresh, mostly coming out of frozen bags. I ordered the seafood platter, the deviled clam dinner and the fried clams dinner. We had clam strips that were inedible. Stuffed clams that were terrible. One shrimp on my seafood... More

Allen's is still my go to place for fresh scallops. Not the giant ones and not the tiny ones but just normal size scallops. in 10 years I have yet to encounter a single one that wasn't sweet and fresh. Their other offerings are also very good. Shrimp, flounder, and oysters and soft shells in season. Especially the oysters rockefeller.

Deliciously fresh seafood no frills atmosphere! I always get the broiled seafood combination (scallops, shrimp, flounder) and it is always perfectly done! Comes with a salad and I choose the baked potato, very good. Husband got the broiled flounder with fries and cole slaw, very good. BYOB, package goods store across the street.

We went here recently for dinner mainly because Breezes wasn't open (same owners) and I was itching for some fried clam strips. The interior is basic, nothing special, but the food is incomparable. The dinners are more than one person can eat, with sides and a roll (yummy). I got my fried clams, and my friend had the fish and... More

Like the fresh seafood here. Portions are good, service good, your basic NJ seafood shack. We go off season as it is crowded during the summer. Like getting the oyster stew. Not the cheapest seafood, but consistent quality. We go there several times a year.

I've been going there for over 30 years. Seafood is always fresh and the service is great. Part of my Lenton tradition each year. Spoiled by the freshness and culinary treats.

Food mediocre , the reason to go is for nostalgia. Had their French fried lobster that was disappointing.

I visit Allen's about 4 times a year for over 20 years. The Resturant had some upgrades over the years but still remains simple, straightforward, good fish joint. Last time we were there I had the broiled scallop dinner and my friend had broiled flounder, shrimp scallop combo. Both meals great. Always great service in a friendly atmosphere. This is... More

Wonderful seafood cafe with great friendly service and very good fare. I started with a bowl of Manhattan Clam chowder followed by a flounder platter. Both were very good and the price also. The restaurant is in New Gretna not Tuckerton. No alcohol. I would return.
