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.

Visited Allen's the end of August 2014 with a large group...we arrived early so we didn't have to wait long. Ordered some appetizers, clam strips, calamari, and shrimp cocktail...ordered some more appetizers (they were that good!) Our entrees were no let down...broiled seafood combination, homemade crab cakes, fried flounder, etc. Everyone was super satisfied with what they ordered! Allen's is... More

Had a bucket of steamers to start, were very good. Split a fried shrimp and a fried scallop. Both are recommended.

I had a craving for clams and traveled 50 miles to get to Allen's. Always great. Plump juicy clams. Can't beat them. Small place that would be great for families.

Nice local place for the residents to go and have a great meal. Everyone is in jeans and shorts. Just a good hang out for a seafood meal. The New England Clam Chowder was thick and very good. The fried clams were delicious but there were only 9 on my plate. The clam strips my wife had were much better.... More

A co-worker told me about this place. She warned me that it doesn't look good from the outside (or inside for that matter) but the food is WONDERFUL! If you want FRESH seafood, in a VERY casual setting, go to Alan's Clam Bar on Rt 9. I know I'm going back! SOON!!!

Having heard so much about this place I had to try it. I must admit the food is very good. However for the price of it, I expected it to be served on some sort of glass plate and not a cardboard one! I know about being "green" and eco-friendly but I think the paper plates belong at a less... More

Simple seafood menu....Seafood is either fried or broiled. Delicious! because it's like home-made fried food. Little Necks, the calamari and the deep-fried lobster tails are outstanding! Very cute place with a liquor store across the street for your BYOB. Nice stop on the way to AC or the southern Jersey Shore beaches.
