Dinner here was good, sat at the bar and had a drink and appitizer before we ate, the drinks were reasonably priced and service was good, only thing I didn't like was there was not a view to look out on while eating. Would definitely go back.

We used to go here when we went to Sea Isle City, but haven't been here in about 12 years. It's not the same as I remember. I think it is over priced, wasn't flavorable, they wanted an extra $3.99 for a true Ceasar Salad with our $32.00 entree. We passed, and went with Ceasar dressing, but the lettuce in... More

The Lobster Loft was a very comfortable restaurant to eat at. The food was very good and our waitress made our meal even more fun. I had a 1/2 lobster stuffed with crab cake. My hubby had the Steam Boat and it certainly was filled to the top with clams, mussels, potatoes , crab legs and of course a whole... More

The place looked and smelled dirty,and was extremely cramped with tables despite being empty. The menu is over priced with small portions and the food was awful I would've complained bit our server was no where to be found had to ask a busboy for the check

This venue is fairly central in Sea Isle City. It serves food, drinks and has a live band evening time. We went for drinks. Our server was attentive. The band consisted of drums, bass guitar, lead guitar and female singer. When a crowd materialised, there was dancing and people having a good time. Band members were good musicians but in... More

We went to try their happy hour appetizers in the bar - clams in garlic sauce, clams casino, scallops wrapped in bacon and mussels in red sauce. Both the scallops and clams were very good but they should have been served hot from the kitchen instead of being allowed to sit and cool down. The clams casino was interesting in... More

Although we only had drinks, the food did not look appetizing and the service was random. We will not likely return.

Had the buffet and it was very expensive for what you got on the buffet. Ran out of crab legs and didn't make any more. Won't go back.

The Loft sits on a lagoon in Fish Alley. The staff is courteous helpful and friendly. The appetizers are to die for. The place is also great off season especially during the college and pro football season. The special reduced price wings, clams and mussels(to name a few) are incredible runners up to the scallops wrapped in bacon. The owners... More
