Good food and ambiance. It was a Saturday evening and we were a party of four...we called ahead and made a reservation. We were quickly seated, promised a fourth menu book but never got it.

The bread - complimentary at the beginning of your meal - was staled. I pointed that to the waitress who said, oh, no, that's how our bread is. I ordered a salad - no one can screw that up - and husband ordered a cod dinner. The cod dinner was fried in staled oil, obviously the fryer has not been... More

This place was okay. Nothing really to write home about. I had the clam chowder , little neck clam and the scallops. Both tasty. The rest of the family had clams and fettuccine and thiught it was awful. I had eaten here before, years ago. At that time it was much better.

We stopped by the Lobster Shack and were happy to discover some early specials. We both had the steak and tail and lobster bisque. Great food and nice quiet atmosphere. The early specials made for a good price too. Service was quick and friendly. A very great place to get some quality food in Wildwood. We would happily go again.

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

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 ordered clam chowder (which... More

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

We were walking on the boardwalk liking for a place to eat seafood. We found that place on the street just couple meter from the board walk. We look at the menu and decided to go in. 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
