Fresh!

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

Fantastic! Joe, the owner, takes time to visit guests. Flounder, scallops, clams were out of this world delicious! Not a fancy place but great food!

Great food at a great value. Joe, the owner came out to chat with us. He told us how they got scallops and fish fresh each day. The crab bisque was amazing! It was all crab! We enjoyed all of it and took a quart of soup to go!

We decided to check this place out after reading the reviews. Our experience has been that some of the small, proverbial "hole in the wall" places have the best food. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in because this place was anything but a shack. One of the important things to remember is that this restaurant's primary business is... More

We placed an order for pick up. Food was ready on time. The fried flounder, red crab soup and lobster roll were excellent. The crab cakes were good, but we've had better. $80 for two sandwiches, two platters and a quart of soup.

Ignore any reviews about the atmosphere, there isn't meant to be atmosphere. This place started as take out only, the customers demanded tables. With that being said, it is clean, cozy, and friendly, the owner checks in everyone regularly. This is the best and freshest seafood I have found, we are a seafood family, have enjoyed it from Alaska to... More

Went here from Cape May after we couldn't get in to the Lobster House as the queue was too long. This is a great little casual restaurant with good food. Not at all fancy - but chowder was great. As was the fried squid and everything we ordered was mopped up and finished. Don't expect fancy. Just expect good seafood.... More
