“GREAT CATCH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

This place was so good I went back within a month and I'm 3 hours away. Ordered combination platter which comes with a nice portion of sole, scallops, shrimp and a huge crabcake. You also have a choice of two sides and if you would like broiled or fried. You can take out or dine on a picnic table outside. Staff is very friendly. If cooking seafood is your game, everything is available so you can take home and cook up a storm

“Pinky's reheated!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Bought take out ...dissapointing ,as by the time we got to eat food was not piping hot. We were only staying 2 blocks away. Realize this is basic fried food...however next day reheated left overs..it was great...fries,clams,fish,etc. So my advice eat there or reheat when you get home !!

“over priced for takeout, no atmosphere for eating in”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Expensive food for takeout and you have to wait! No atmosphere eating on picnic benches on a busy blvd if you eat in. Less hassle grilling at home and husking a few ears of corn and much less expensive!.

“Fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

You can take out or eat there, your choice. We usually take out. Wait time for pick up or eat in various. Most times it's quite busy. I think the better deal here is to buy and make your food yourself, as you can buy uncooked, fresh seafood. It always looks really good and then we leave wishing we had tried it out! We usually order scallops and shrimp, broiled, and it comes with two sides and it costs just under $20. Their crab cake sandwich is good too. The kid menu is fair, but I think a little pricey, $10 and below, however the portion side is quite large. There are no extras attached to the kids meal. Sometimes calling on the phone can be a long wait, they only have one phone line and they're likely to put you on hold. We spend a week in LBI every year, and for the family this place has become a tradition and the food is pretty consistent.

“Really good food to take out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

Really good food but I recommend take out. Other than a couple of benches in front that are usually swarmed with flies, there is no where else to sit. Everything we've gotten from here is fresh and yummy. Cole slaw is our favorite side... We always order extra. This is our favorite take out lunch spot in LBI
