“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

My family visited Schellenger's this summer for dinner. It is decorated top to bottom in nautical type theme which is cute for a seafood restaurant. The service was ok, not the best, not the worst. The food was just ok as well - nothing special.

“Had a nice time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Another pretty cool little restaurant in Jersey. It was decorated from head to toe with ocean-like stuff. The food was pretty good also. I was a little skeptical when we first came, but I left very impressed.

“Very touristy, but okay for kids”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I have eaten in Schellenger's a few times, and it's hit or miss. Sometimes, the food is good, sometimes it isn't. The last time I was there, I had cream of crab soup and T-bone steak with mashed potatoes. Other members of my group had chicken noodle soup, fried ravioli, salmon, and fish & chips. The crab soup wasn't hot enough, the mashed potatoes were tasteless, and the steak and salmon were tough. The chicken noodle soup, ravioli, and fish and chips were decent.

The restaurant is conveniently located right off the boardwalk, has lots of nautical decorations, and is a somewhat of a tourist trap. However, Schellenger's has free parking (rare for downtown Wildwood), has a very extensive menu, is moderately priced, has good service, and is very kid-friendly. If you looking for fine dining, go elsewhere, but for basic food at reasonable cost, Schellenger's may be okay.

“ok food..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

went there with a party of 5. If you like seafood, its a decent restaurant, but the other menu choices are average at best. I had the chicken florentine..sounds good from the menu description, but lacked flavor & was watery from the grilled eggplant To be honest, @ $19 I expected a little better...The rest of the party had seafood..lazy mans lobster, shore platter, & they were satisfied. Staff was very friendly, decor could use a little uplift.
