We visited the lobster shack during the week while on vacation. I was apprehensive at first due to it's location so close to the boardwalk, like Jumbos. I call these tourist traps where the food is very expensive and does not taste good. These types of places base their revenue on one time visits from tourists and not repeat business.... More

Originally from Cape May County I must have passed this place hundreds of times but I had never eaten there. We decided to venture out of our usual eatery mold and try something new. We were seated right away. Food was great and waitress was very pleasant and attentive. The decor wasn't dingy at all, in fact it looked very... More

If you want food poisoning served cheap this is the place to go. The decor is dingy and old but not as old as the seafood they serve. The early dinner savings aren't worth the indigestion. The service was also very slow even though there was just one other table there at the time. The staff was very attentive and... More

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

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. Good menu options... I was able to satisfy my seafood craving with a decent platter that included broiled flounder, crab cake, scallops and shrimp (they... More
