Everything is made when ordered. The fried clams are meaty and yum, the cod dinner is perfect, the ribs are a lil on the small side, but delicious. We loved everything here, will come back

My wife and I went to the Fish Factory, when we were staying at the Acacia Beach Side Resort in early June of 2015. On a Sunday night, before heading home, we stopped by the Fish Factory for dinner in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. We actually only ordered soup, since my wife loves Manhattan Clam Chowder, and we ate quite... More

We just ate here last night (Sat. June 27) and I am still drooling... Unfortunately, the weather was rainy and cold and probably kept a lot of folks from dining out. DH and I did not want to have to "dress" for dinner and were looking for something casual, quiet, and delicious. THIS IS IT!!! We always check here for... More

2nd time to the Crest and this is a must. Delish fried seafood, very casual dining. The pre-packaged cocktail sauce leaves a little to be desired.

We came here on a late Friday night. The wait staff was very nice, accommodating and very attentive. But the food was ok. I had the fried clams, I had eaten better fried clams before. My husband had the linguini and clams, he said he makes it better. He doesn't like that they chopped the clams into small pieces, it... More

I go to the Fish Factory whenever I can. I went with some friends and I got scallops and shrimp and they were so fresh and absolutely delicious. The portions were perfect. The price of the food is very reasonable and the staff is always so friendly. I'll definitely be back!
