We ordered take-out. If it is a busy time in season on a weekend...make sure to call in your order! I called our order in and was told 30 minutes and I waited almost 1 hour. Despite the long unexpected wait, the food was delicious. It was obvious that the seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly. The side dishes were... More

Ate there the night we got to town for a weeklong vacation. Good service; table was set up with highchair and crayons for our grandson before we got there. Good menu. Started with 50 steamed clams - very tasty. Two of my party had soft shell crab- one sautéed and one fried. I would say the fried was overdone while... More

I had the all you can eat crab legs for 29.99, came with a potato and coleslaw. My hubby had the broiled scallops and shrimp and fries and coleslaw. It was very good. Staff was pleasant. Nothing fancy, but one of the best meals that we had in Avalon.

I really want to like this place. Nice seafood menu, and wide selection of entrees. We wanted Lobster Tails with Crab. Now the menu didn't say 'stuffed with crab meat', which I sort of overlooked. But first we had a dozen oysters, nice shucked and properly chilled. The server told us at first he'd have to check and see if... More

Lots of good reviews about this place but I found it average at best ordered stuffed flounder and while the flounder was good the crab was not so good. Not lump crabre but just a weak stuffing. Also had coconut shrimp that was right out of the freezer section of a Sysco truck. Sides were weak as well and all... More

I've never dined in here but we always order takeout and Oceanside never disappoints. Their portions are HUGE so you will be more than satisfied. I got the fried shrimp basket with the veggie of the day (broccoli). I got about 12 shrimp and a large serving of perfectly cooked broccoli. Great dinner!

Perfect for family dining! Portions are great and their clams are to die for! I have been before, when Oceanside only did take out, but their dining area was very nice.

Always fresh, always good. Walking distance from my summer home. Reasonable prices. Have never eaten in here but people do. Friendly and really care whether you enjoy their food.
