Nice outdoor location but...

I almost feel like I am on vacation when I am here. The seating is outdoors under a tent right off of the beach on the bay side. Sunset is the best time to be there. However, the menu is limited and overpriced. The taste is lackluster... nothing special. But the view is pretty good.

On a cool evening; it's a nice environment with calming views. The menu is extremely limited and the good al tastes as if it comes out of a microwave. There is also a limited selection of wine. If you want a drink by the water; it's a nice environment; but I would not recommend the food.

It's all about the location and view. It goes downhill after that. Although we admittedly went with a large group on a Sunday and were seated promptly, it took a full hour for our food to come out from the time we placed our order. Wouldn't have been so bad except we had five children in our group under the... More

I was at the Seafood Shack for lunch yesterday and could not believe the increase in prices. A salad, composed mostly of lettuce, was $13 and adding 4 shrimp to that salad was an additional $12! Ridiculous! With iced tea and a tip, my friend and I each ended up spending $36 for lunch! I have been eating at the... More

The beachside location is fabulous, the menu is boring and the food is not great. Each year we keep giving it a try but most times its a dissapointment.

You would think that it would be hard to screw up with a beach view at your restaurant. OMG this place and the Salsa Shack next door have the worst possible service and kitchen management. Eat on the main land

The food was average to better, the service so so. The prices are about what you would expect on the water. The view and ambiance of the bay are what you came here for and to watch the sun set.

I've been here several times before and know as one other reviewer mentioned to "pack my patience." But this time was RIDICULOUS. We visited on a Friday evening. Arrived at 6 pm, and were seated immediately (party of 4) which was surprising, but exciting since we were going to the Theater at Jones beach for an 8 pm concert. Alex,... More

After a long day at the beach , nothing hits the spot better than some fresh seafood ! The convenience factor is clearly part of what you are paying for at this seaside escape . Mussels , steamers , scallops were fresh and delicious ! Now all this food comes at a price . Just be forewarned , that's all... More

Came for dinner with some friends and were seated within 5 minutes on a busy July evening.. We got the best big table that they had (score).. Orders drinks and that's where the disappointment started.. We all had cranberry and vodka, or really just CRANBERRY juice over ice.. we sat waiting for sometime to ask her to add a bit... More
