3.5 circle GARY is AMAZING! :D

I was a little skeptical when we walked in and there was NOBODY in the restaurant! It was only 8:30 at the shore when everything is open until 11ish! Had it not been for the waiter Gary coming out and personal greeting us and asking us to stay we probably would have gone somewhere else. We... read more

Tired and hungry after walking the boardwalk. Very attractive restaurant with great Lobster bisque. My waitress was great making sure we got the early bird specials.

slow service, especially as it was empty. No clarified butter for lobster. Scallops rubbery. Steak okay but unseasoned. Salt in shakers like a rock Go somewhere else

My family and I were vacationing in Wildwood labor day weekend and wanted something a little nicer than your typical boardwalk food. They were very busy when we came in and our waitress, Amanda warned us that they were a little backed up but it would be worth the wait. She was very accommodating and pleasant. I got the whole...

We all know fist pumping on the Jersey Shore can really work up a deep hunger for lobster! Two 7 ounce lobster tails for $32 isn't bad so I got my man 4. They were scrumptious and so was the rest of our meal. The two and a half dozen steamed clams were served with a delicious broth, I mean... More

It didn't start well it took over 20 min it be seated. The restaurant wasn't full and we were to couple waiting to... More

We were a party of four women. Decided to go to Lobster Shack because it was a block away from our accommodations. Overall, the service was poor. Two of us ordered burgers, one had a Caesar salad and the other had soup, shrimp and salad. My burger was good but my sister found hers tasted bad and didn't eat it.... More
