Better than average seafood, fresh

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.

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!!!
