“Looks like a dive, but GREAT food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stopped in after a day at the beach in Island Beach Park for a beer or two... stayed for appetizers, which were so good, we them ordered dinner as well. AMAZING FRESH crabs among other great seafood. Looks a little like a dive (which I kinda like anyway) but really clean, good service, excellent food.

“Love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It's the seafood shack that you should always have in your life. Platters of shellfish and corn in a variety of yummy platters always fill your crustacean cravings. The decor is nothing to speak about and the service is sometimes spotty, but if you want a bushel of garlic crabs with a pitcher of beer, there's no better place to go.

“Would not go again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Went once and it is over priced, dirty and the service is not at all pleasant. Definitely not worth the money when there are other places nearby much cleaner and more reasonably prices.

Your review of the restaurant from last summer is spot on, but Bum Rogers is under new ownership and management now and has been completely remodeled. We hope you come back this summer and see the changes, including the clean, new bathrooms.
