Great Fish Tacos!

We wanted a local fish restaurant that was not touristy, this was it. My fish tacos were delicious. My husband's fried shrimp were amazing. The only bad thing was the kids chicken fingers were more like McNuggets than real chicken.

We go here every year, and we love it. In my opinion, their New England clam chowder is the best on the island. Some come close, but Fish Factory's is the best. The broiled scallops are delicious! I haven't had a bad meal there.

we were going to get take out but ended up eating in. There were ants crawling on the wall of our booth and the fish was overcooked. The best thing was the onion rings, but for an additional $3 I got 4 onion rings and terrible cole slaw. We won't be going back here anytime soon.

Our group of about 10 adults and 3 children ordered from here while staying locally in condos. We didn't want to leave the pool and they delivered right to our lounge chairs! A variety of dinners were ordered from broiled seafood combos to chicken parmigiana to cheeseburgers to chicken fingers. The service was quick and friendly. The food was tasty.... More

About medium. Good service, nice unpretentious atmosphere, small dining room, friendly staff. My food was ok, not amazing. I would go again to try a second time. Would appeal for takeout if I stayed nearby again.

Although the food was decent, the portions are on the small side for the price you pay. I stopped in for take out and ordered the broiled scallops with a side of steamed veggies. When I got home I opened up the box to find two broccoli spears and 9 small to medium size scallops. I don't know if I... More

We order from the fish factory every vacation. You can't beat the food for the money and it's great. Especially in Wildwood you pay alot for not great food at other places. We usually order from the fish factory on a night we are taking a break from the boardwalk and it never disappoints.

Well prepared and fresh seafood. A few dishes were a little expensive. Broiled and fried platter options. Seafood pasta options. Kids menu. Bisque and clam chowder very good. Byob. Dine-in and take-away. Fish market. Probably one of the better places to get seafood in the area.
