Shack Up With Some Lobster!

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 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

I was very happy with my experience at the Lobster Shack. I was seated promptly by the hostess and the waitress took great care of us while we were there - always topping up our bottomless drinks and bringing extra bread to the table. The food was beyond great - I had the steamer feast (1lb lobster with clams, scallops... More
