Worst wait staff ever! After asking the waitress if Penne pasta was available for my children since no kids menu was offered she quickly snapped "Linguini only" only to overhear a special presented to another table by a different waitress that a penne pasta dish was a special that evening!
The food was okay at best and well over priced. Any other restaurant at the shore would be a better choice!

I have been to this establishment several times at different times of year and the experience has been uniformly outstanding. The waitstaff is very knowledgable, the menu is current and atmosphere is great. This is the type of restaurant that you will want to hang out at the bar when you are done with your meal. You should make a reservation if you plan to go here and whatever the wait for your drinks and entree may be , it is most definitely worth it. On a scale of one to ten , ten being the best, Shipwreck Grill scores a consistent ten . If you are going down the shore for a weekend this place is well worth your money.

This place was recommended by a friend, so we thought we would give it a try.

Service started very slow, with a 15 minute wait for our waitress to take our drink order.

We had our kids, 6 and 12 with us, and we asked about a kids menu.

The only thing we were offered was linguini with butter or marinara sauce. A bit surprising to us.

As far as "grown up" food, I had a sushi grade tuna with sesame crust that was one the the best I have ever had, served with a spicy cabbage bed and sprouts. Excellent at $28.

My wife had Linguini with white clam sauce, which was good, but a bit watery.

The espresso was served hot by request, and it did not disappoint.

Overall service was slow, but the food was good. Total bill was $88 with one appetizer and no alcohol.

We live at the Jersey Shore at least 50% of the year and consider this our primary address. The Shipwreck is a great little place, even on weekends, but better during the week. It is cozy, yet fun and we have always found the clientele very friendly. Food excellent. Last night (Tuesday in May) we decided to eat at the bar. Food was delicious, and our bar neighbors fun but not intrusive.
