Great seafood!

I enjoyed eating here. Small place but the food is great. Stay away from the fried combo it was bland. Def eat the seafood broiled if you want the best tasting meal you've ever had. I definitely will return.

It was ok...I think when I'm paying that kind of money I don't want to be eating out of a tin pan. Also don't ask for water because the give you bottle water without telling you and charge you for it!

Thanks for the review. We started out as strickly a take out, we do not have the facilities for complete dish washing; some patrons requested to sit and eat, it was explained to them about the take out containers, they responded by saying that it did not matter. That is the reason for the take out containers; it is good... More

We came here after all the great reviews and weren't disappointed. The service was friendly and we ordered the broiled combo platter, fried flounder and scallops platter, clams and calamari. All were delicious and it was nice to make a large order and they didn't forget a thing.

In Wildwood for the day and based on TripAdvisor reviews decided to have an early dinner before we headed back home. Got there at opening at 4pm so can not rate on service during a busy time. Waitress and owner were very attentive. Steamed Littlenecks were awesome, lots of flavorful broth to be soaked up with the large fresh, warm... More

Visited based on Trip Advisor reviews, and every one was right. We had broiled crab cakes, scallops and shrimp. All were wonderful. Crab cakes were all crab and even the cole slaw was great, with bits of celery. I told Joe (who visited the tables about three times in our visit) I would tell Trip Advisors they were right about...

This reataurant was highly recommended by a native Wildwoodian for it's food and atmosphere. The atmosphere was great: live music, lots of people and plenty of spots to people watch. The food however was less than OK, on Wednesdays they have burrito and taco specials at great prices but the gas build up the burrito caused wasn't worth the cheap... More

I am sorry that you had a bad experience, but we cannot take credit for it. We are not open on Wednesdays as yet, we are only open on Fri-sat-and sun. We do not serve the foods you have listed and complained about and we do not have a bar. Please revisit and post your complaint to the proper establishment,... More

I had the seafood combo which was so tasty and cooked well. My husband had lobster rolls which had loads of fresh lobster meat. This is a must have meal. When there busy you may have to wait awhile. But it's definitely worth the wait. Don't waste your time going to other seafood joints because this one here is the... More

We stopped by this restaurant on the first Sunday in May. They were open even though the season was almost a month away. My wife, Angela, ordered the fried flounder and I selected the combination platter. There are 8 tables for sit down but we understand that most of their business is take out. Our meal was served in dinner... More

We stopped at the Crab and Seafood shack for lunch on a recent trip to the Jersey Shore. I ordered the Fried Crab Cake Platter. The Crab Cakes were loaded with tasty crab meat cooked to perfection. The platter also included a generous portion of French Fries, and tasty Cole Slaw. I enjoyed the casual atmosphere of the Crab and... More
