A highlight of our trips!

Every summer when I take my daughters to Wildwood Crest, we have to be sure and get take out from the Fish Factory (we take it back to our oceanfront suite to enjoy our view).

We have been traveling to the Crest for about 35 years now. We found the Fish Factory about 15 years ago and have ordered many times over the years. We have never eaten inside, however, it looks quite small with only a dozen or so tables. We have always ordered take-out on the nights we don't want to have a... More

in Wildwood, wanted seafood...found this gem of a place! Seafood is fresh and taste is excellent! portion sizes just perfect. We had broiled scallops, shrimp, flounder, and lobster tail-fried cod sandwich, fish tacos, raw clams and an unexpected treat in the roasted potatoes! Service was great and place was clean-definitely going back..excellent!

While certainly not fine dining, we had one of our favorite meals in the Wildwoods at The Fish Factory. The seafood was delicious and reasonably priced. We ordered the 50 steamed shrimp for $8.99 and while the shrimp were on the smaller side, they were cooked perfectly and the cocktail sauce was great. We also enjoyed the New England Clam... More

The broiled scallops and shrimp cocktail were so delicious. We also enjoyed the lobster bisque. We got roasted potatoes as one of our sides and could have never imagined how good they would be. Can't wait to order again next summer!

delicious, fresh and fast. Even stopped back to buy fish to take home. All fresh and they have a variety of spices and sauces to buy too. I love the take out service, we called for food, and enjoyed it sitting at the pool at our hotel.

Always stop here for a fish sandwich when visiting Wildwood Crest. Fresh, hot and so good! This place is a seafood market but has a dining area and offers take out. The dining area is nothing fancy, like a small cafe, but food is delicious. As all things in Wildwood Crest, is a little pricy but worth it because the... More
