We went here on our last dinner out on our vacation. It was the seafood I was looking for. Unlike the rest of the restaurants in wildwood this place is not a tourist trap. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. The owner made the rounds to each table to check in. The waitress was friendly and attentive. They catered... More

I had the most wonderful experience at this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious. We started with the crab chowder, lobster roll, little neck steamed clams and crab cakes. The chowder was filled with delicious chunks of crab and veggies, the lobster roll was sweet with fresh pieces of lobster- no globs of mayo or sauce- just unmasked high quality... More

I'm so glad we tried this "off the beaten path" seafood treasure. Pam was our waitress on the first night, and she was one of the reasons we went back with a larger party. My wife and I were very impressed with the freshness of the flounder and crab cakes we had, and Pam brought us samples of the 2... More

My family and I went last night for dinner. We went because of all the good reviews. The place was small and cute, staff was very friendly. Food was just ok. Portions were on the small side and prices were on the high side. The crab chowder was very good other then that everything was ok. I didn't find it... More

Everything was fresh. Came out on time. It was my first time there and saw they were #1 on Trip Advisor so we had to go! The only thing I wasn't expecting was that it's really a Shack so it's not a place to really sit down and eat but we managed with seven of us.

Joe, I think it takes an awesome person to handle so politely the few rude and insensitive customers you have addressed on this forum...it speaks to your character...you are not only a fine chef and business owner, but you are a fine human being...

The other reviews are so right! This restaurant has the best and freshest seafood my family and I have ever had. The lobster rolls are mayo free (my preference) and were tender, tasty and buttery. The whole belly fried clams are out of this world. You MUST try the crab chowder filled with crab, fresh corn, spices, and creamy goodness.... More

This is a little tiny place. Nothing fancy, but very good lobster rolls and scallops. My friend loved the fried combo platter. He really liked the clam strips. We enjoyed it so much that we went back 2 days later. I made the mistake of ordering a pasta dish, shrimp with linguine. The sauce was terrible. So bad, I could... More

Thanks for the review and the continued patronage, but I wish you would have mentioned something about the linguine dish you had when you were at the restaurant. If you were dissatisfied with the dish it would have been replaced with another choice of yours, to be truthful this is the 1st complaint we had about our sauce or gravy.... More
