I don't know what's ticked off those other 2 reviewers from 2 days ago, probably competition spies?? I came here for the first time tonight I've been coming to Wildwood almost every year for many years and tried this Seafood restaurant for the first time tonight. The other reviewer said the Fried Flounder was too small? No, I received 2... More

We ate dinner on a Tuesday night and had to wait about 30 minutes, but it worth the wait. My husband said the crab cakes were one of the best he's had. I had the linguine (pescatorrre) with red sauce and that was excellent. If you are looking for fine dining, this is not your place...meals are served in takeout... More

I come originally from the Pittsburgh area. There if you order fried flounder you get about a 9" x4" piece about 3/4 thick! I figure at the shore, at a warf, I gotta get something close. No way! We're talking about 1/16" of flounder and 3/4" of breading on a 5" x 3" piece! Then crab chowder, white sauce, you'd... More

Not so good. Steamers were ok but the butter and garlic sauce was typical (overdone really). The corn was mushy. The bread to dip in the butter and garlic sauce was from a supermarket. If you are going to charge so much for food give me some decent bread. I got the lobster roll. Not traditional but again the bread... More

Our family ordered 50 Steamed Little Necks as appetizers, Jersey Fried Seafood Combo, Broiled Seafood Combo and Homemade Crab Cakes as main entrees, and Freedom Fries, Shack Fries, Cole Slaw and Baked Potato as side orders. Little necks were delicious. The white wine garlic sauce was just right: not over-salted, not too much garlic. Eating those buns, that go with... More

Small place with very little seating. We were lucky to get a table. Everything served in to go containers, so it's easy to stay and eat, or take it home. Freshest seafood I ever had.

Went with a party of 6. Tip....get there early (they open at 4pm Tues-Fri) to grab a table and ensure you will be able to try the crab chowder. It is delicious, tons of crab meat, and seems to go quickly. The Old Bay steamed crabs were yummy although a bit overcooked. The lobster rolls were good but $27.95 for... More

Stopped here after a day at Morey's Piers once we saw the reviews on tripadvisor. My wife and I are fans of crab and it's less common than one might expect to find places that serve whole crabs at the Shore... We were very pleased to stop by here. As others have said this is a very informal, casual place.... More

Do yourself a favor and go to Crab And Seafood Shack the next time you're in Wildwood!. This is not a formal sit-down restaurant. You will order inside this small hut and they bring your food out to your table. Be warned that the soup is so good that it will be gone within couple of hours. So, get there... More

It was very casual, which is fine. I had the lobster roll-it was all meat. My friends had the broiled platter that was nice. I always have mussels wherever I go.These were some of the weakest I have ever had.Small, small portion. They were disappoining. I now know why this place has so many good reviews. The owner approached us... More
