“Love the lobster roll”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Just your basic seafood shack in a shore town but the lobster roll really stood out here--fresh, nicely seasoned and plenty of it, with a nice side of fries. Can also recommend other lunch staples like crab cakes and the fried oyster po' boy. Good-quality, straight-ahead fare.

“Good seafood, good prices!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

My husband and another friend of ours enjoy eating lobster tail when dining at the shore. By far, they both voted Oceanside Seafood as having the best lobster. Lobster was not the only delicious item on the menu. Our large group of family and friends found all the dishes to be tasty and delicious. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We particularly liked the idea that this restaurant was a B.Y.O.B.
On Tuesdays, children under 12 eat free. This not only makes good business sense, but is affordable to families who would like the opportunity to eat out one night of their vacation without breaking their pocketbooks. The night we took our grandchildren, they told us it would be a 40 minute wait. We walked down the block and went into a shop and within 20 minutes we received a call that our table for 9 was ready. Other area restaurants known for their seafood have had much longer waits. Our family and friends claimed this to be the best and intend to return next year.

“Not very good”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Was expecting more. The fried oysters were on par ith Mrs. Paul's. Other diners were also unimpressed. The service was good.

“Best lobster!!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Wonderful food! by far, the best lobster I've ever had! the clams were wonderful too. We did not eat at the restaurant, but wanted to take the food home with us. The staff was wonderful in helping us decide what to order and helping us place the order. We arrived when they told us our food would be ready, and it was ready for us! We will definitely be back and adding this to the list of our favorite places. Not inexpensive, but a very good price for what we ate.
