“Fantastic, Fresh & Friendly!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our lunch at Mud City! The NE Clam Chowder was thick, creamy and had great flavor. The crab cakes were out of this world...succulent with big pieces of crab. The service was wonderful! The atmosphere is extremely casual and basic but comfortable. We will be back.

“Great for lunch or dinner.”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We love the crab cakes and New England clam chowder. We stopped by for an early dinner and were promptly greeted and seated. I would definitely return.

“Lunch”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Wow, what a find! Ambiance is not great but who cares when you can get great food. We had a crab cake sandwich that was out of this world....oh, I had a bowl of NE Clam Chowder that was great as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back.....

“Big Taste in Little Restaurant!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

As you first drive up to this unassuming strip mall and see the signage for the Mud City Crab Cake Co. you are tempted to exit right out of the parking lot. Don't be deceived by appearances! This little restaurant ( used to be a small local bank ) tucked into the corner of the mall offers BIG value not only in taste but in price. We live near the original Mud City Restaurant in Manahawkin but rarely go there since it is always crazy busy. We happened upon the Forked River location this winter (yes, unlike the other location.... they are open year 'round) and are thrilled with our find! They have a crab cake sandwich that comes on a yummy roll, with coleslaw and amazing French fries for only $10.95! Their chowder is to die-for and the calamari excellent! Reasonably priced, cozy, and add your own bottle of wine and this is a home-run in my book!!!

“Fresh delicious seafood, dine in and or take home from fish market counter!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Mud city has very popular crowded locations in LBI that are a frequented Hot Spot by tourists and locals as well ( we live about 30 min away). Always a loooong wait but well worth it, we have been going for years, but now that they opened this smaller less known location in Forked
River we have been dining w them even more and year round. Known for their crab cakes everything I've ever tried was delicious. If visiting the area this summer season I recommend eating at this little gem 1st then head down to the over crowded captains inn tiki bar for drinks and live music.
