The food was ok, the service not that good, we felt unwelcome, and had to wait for the waitress to como to take our order, after she served we did not see her again. There were not that many people, no one waiting.

We have experienced this restaurant twice in the month of August and had have wonderful meals. The Baked Seafood platter is excellent, with you choice of fish to accompany the scallops, shrimp and clam cake. The shrimp roll was wonderful. Service is excellent. The place is small so later dinners will have a wait, however, the food is worth it.

We had a great time, even though the place was packed. We tried several dishes and everyone was very pleased with their choice

Went here for dinner after an hour and a half wait and thank goodness our service was great. The menu is very extensive with lots of choices so there is bound to be something on the menu for everyone. I ordered the scallops which were just ok. I have had better, but I have to say the wait staff was... More

Really good seafood. Restaurant is small, so you will have to wait if you don't go early. But, you can put your name in and come back. Also, it's BYO and if you have to wait, they will open your wine and give you glasses to take out on the porch with you while you wait.

This is an impeccably clean fish market and restaurant. I always get the lobster roll. My husband has always been happy with the other things on the menu. Great service with a nice atmosphere.

Ate here again last night. Food and service were fantastic. Everything we have tried here is great. Neat little fish market as well with lots of offerings. Go early, it gets crowded! This place has become one of our favorites on LBI

We intended to dine in but with an hour and a half wait and our two little kids starving we chose take out instead. Did not take long for our order at all but wish we checked before making the 15-minute walk back to our rental condo. They forgot my husband's onion rings, the applesauce for the kids, and even...

The seafood is fresh....and tasty! We tried the daily special, crab legs and chowder. I recommend all! It's a bring your own beer or wine restaurant. It's very small, so go early or expect to wait.

Very Fresh delicious seafood-- gotta try their crabcakes-- I'm from Md. originally, so I KNOW a good crabcake! A little pricey, like ALL LBI places, but good food in return-- Main complaint: Place needs to be bigger!- hard to get in at dinner time -- the bathroom, by the way, is around the corner!
