Tasty food, friendly customers and a good meal!

It's already the off-season in Wildwood and hard to find places to eat at night. We called to make sure they were still open til 9 (other places had closed early) and could they could handle a wheelchair. Yes to both answers. We "walked in" about 8:30 and found just a few customers in a small... read more

Was excited to check it out after reading reviews but it's a dump with take out level food. The wait is obscene and it comes in tins. Not cheap either.

I would be interested in finding out when you visited us, since we have been closed since the end of September of 2015. I do believe people who take the time to review us should make sure they have the right restaurant, We have received a few negative reviews and the reviewers have stated that the staff was bad as...

Small, very casual, low key seafood restaurant. Very reasonably priced. A place with plastic forks and knives. The owner is a very nice guy. Great clams and calamari. The lobster roll is different from any you've had before and very delicious. You can eat in or order to take out. If you want some good seafood but want to wear... More

Unassuming place with no atmosphere. Got steamed little necks. Tasty. Nice broth. Got it with a hard roll wrapped in aluminum foil. Some Italian bread would have been good. Also had linguini with white clam sauce. Not bad. Linguini all dente and tasty. Could have been a little more moist. Lots of linguini. Everything is plastic utensils and served in... More

Okay, heard many great reviews about this place. Sorry to say not that great. I had the fried jumbo shrimp platter, the shrimp were a little over done. I didn't like the bread crumbs they used, too crunchy. This is just my opinion, but I didn't care for it very much. Maybe the other seafood is much better, or I... More

Hnestly it wasn't that crazy for me. I saw the all the cool reviews here and gave it a try. Waited 30 min to take an order to take out and 1 and 1/2 min to pick up. Tried to call ahead for the pickup but the phone was busy. Ordered the famous crabcake and roster roll but I don't... More

I have been looking for a good Lobster roll so this is why I went here. Success! Excellent lobster roll perfectly seasoned and not made with mayo. But the actual roll was disappointing- I think it was a hot dog roll. I thought the portion size was good. $17 for takeout roll seemed pricey. I noticed at the tables where... More

Crabs and shrimp to go, very good and fair pricing. We went there and ordered. They cleaned them and they were tasty. A little smaller that expected but good.

Seafood combination platter was excellent: fresh, well prepared and ready for takeout when promised. Prices were reasonable. I'll definitely return on my next visit to WW
