I found this place via TripAdvisor while in Wildwood nj. We walked to this place since it was so conveniently located in the neighborhood. The staff was friendly and helpful with the menu. The food was made as soon as we ordered. This place was hands down, the best seafood restaurant I have ever visited. I ordered the broiled seafood... More

We so wanted to like this eatery as we love seafood on vacation . Didn't happen . Gritty , undercooked broiled scallops.Not a lot of food for the $. Went on trip advisor 's recommendation and was sorely disappointed. Tasteless corn on the cob . Sorry Joe who seemed nice enough to stop by our table before and after dinner.

I grew up in Wildwood and have lived here (Wildwood/Cape May) all my life. So many times visitors to the shore will ask, "Where do the locals eat?" - or - "Who has really good seafood?" The answers to both of those questions is Crab and Seafood Shack! The seafood's the tastiest, the food preparation rivals that of the many... More

If you like fresh seafood at a very affordable price, this is the place for you. The quality of the seafood cannot be matched. No doubt in my mind that when they say your dinner was swimming in the Atlantic in the morning, they weren’t lying. Joe the owner is a great guy and stops by the table to make... More

Joe the owner was super cool. I wanted take out and he begged me to bring the family in to sit and eat with him. He made sure we had plates, utensils, and napkins when I did the takeout. We had the mixed grill. It was very good. Next time I might try it broiled.

They quickly got a table of 11 ready for us. Everything was fantastic from the service to the food. It is a casual place so don't expect fancy but the food quality is what a high end restaurant would serve. Having 11 people we almost covered everything on the menu and everyone loved it. The owner Joe was so friendly... More

My wife and I stopped in to this small seafood shack and were very pleased with the food! Although crab wasn't in season yet there were still many other menu items worth trying! Calamari appetizer is a must! Very friendly owner thank you so much it was a pleasure to meet you

Felt like we had to try this place based on all the great reviews, but we were honestly disappointed. For my $20+ entree, I got 4 shrimp and 3 scallops in a paper container. 4 of us went and we all felt the same. Joe is a really nice guy, and the seafood was good, but the place is not... More

Don't bother going anywhere else for shellfish. My friends and I visited this place and were greeted by the very friendly owner, Joe, who not only chatted us up while our takeout order was being prepared. Back at the hotel we quickly scarfed down a half dozen blue claw crabs and shack fries, which are freedom fries ('MERICA) with old... More
