Food was average. Nothing special. Prices were reasonable. We choose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. The main problem we had was that there was gunk in our soda glasses. Not sure if the soda machine was dirty or the dishes.

Awesome services. Good food. Family friendly. Couple friendly. Although my food was good it needed to be hot. Didn't mention it to the waiter since I was so hungry and I wanted to eat with the family. If you want fresh seafood and great services I do recommend this establishment. Keep up the fantastic job.

What a fun spot. I love the original 1970's vibe. The food is good! MUCH better than anything on the boardwalk and just a step away from the action. BYOB!!! We enjoyed the fish and chips. Great portion sizes! Best of all... Gary, our server. Gary made us laugh, gave us great suggestions and created a relaxed mood for our... More

This weekend I had the pleasure of eating at the Lobster Shack with my family. And I have to say as a seafood lover this is the spot to go. The staff was very nice and courteous and attentive. It took us awhile to order with the wide variety to choose from plus because some of my family members are... More

This is a great place just off the wildwood boarwalk, where you can dine in or get take out. The broild flounder, shrimp and crab cakes are really really good.

My husband and I were visiting Wildwood, NJ in celebration of our anniversary and decided to eat at the Lobster Shack for dinner one evening during our stay. While it is tucked off the boardwalk on a side street, each time we walked past there was a line of people waiting to get in. We figured this must be a... More
