Every item we ordered was prepared to perfection and tasted great. We wanted a meal to bring back to the hotel and this satisfied us and our taste buds. So delicious.

The seafood is fabulous! You can eat in or take out. The waitstaff is fair as well as the ambiance but the food makes up for their shortcomings. This is a place everyone should experience if you like seafood. Seafood prices so don't be shocked at the menu prices.

But if you want fresh fish, done well, served quickly, by friendly waitpersons, in a down to earth ambiance, then come here. IOW, come to The Fish Factory for the perfect lunch when you don't want fancy schmanzty.

They always have the best selection and varieties of seafood. The clam selection is the best quality around the entire region. Buy from them every chance we can.

Got some steamed crabs to go. They were tasty!... Staff was very friendly. We always stop in when we vacation at the Crest.

The seafood is terrific. Some of the restaurants - especially one's on the water - are pricey tourist traps. If you are looking for fresh tasty seafood...this is the place.

Casual atmosphere, fast service and some of the best fried scallops I've had in a long time! Will definitely go there again.

Great food and fast service. Parking is limited and tight. Arrive early they are crowed. They also offer take out.

The search is over!! This restaurant has the best crab cakes; great flavor with a lot of crab meat. I have gone to seafood festivals and have always been unhappy with their version of crab cakes.

Excellent seafood dinner in wildwood crest. I had the Shrimp with Linguini and it was fanstastic. My wife had the seafood combination and it was great. Priciing is somewhat resaonable and the service is good. Try fish factory!

Thank Robert C
