I have been eating at Kleins since the early 90's. The food is always delicious, the wait staff fast and efficent. The seafood is always fresh. No reservatons for small parties but it is worth the wait. eat utside and watch the boats go by. Kliens just celebrated their 50th and I hope for another 50 years.

My wife and I had not eaten at this restaurant in years, but we tried it over the weekend. We had a table outside, overlooking the water, just after sundown. It was a very pleasant setting, and we found the food to be quite good and reasonably priced. We plan to return.

On a nice day, it is very pleasant to have lunch outside on the patio. Sadly, the food is nowhere as good as the setting. While the Manhattan Clam Chowder was good, the other fish items were tasteless and bland. You would expect much better from a place with a fish market and right on the water.

Remarkably, there are relatively few outdoor dining options on the Jersey Shore, so this place was crowded. I've been here several times over the years and sadly, the food has disappointed me each time. I keep hoping against hope that it will improve, but it just never does.

Bread was stale, salad was watery, fish was just OK. If that is the best you can say about a seafood restaurant, you are doing something wrong.

Great fresh fish and seafood. Most always quick, friendly service. If there's a wait, it's probably going to be less than they tell you to expect.

Several seating options ... Indoor and outdoor dining areas, and a circular outdoor bar with (sometimes) a small band performing.

Klein's has maintained its high standards for years. We'll be back.
