If you want seafood in a traditional atmosphere, this is it. Portions are large and food doesn't disappoint

“Picnic tables”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Pricey for picnic table fried food. Staff was friendly but this old school place needs to step it up, with some new menu items . Great for families

“Excellent seafood in a very relaxed and casual environment.”

Was there last week. Great food and great service in a very casual beach environment! Alaskan crab leg special was fantastic but a little too much work for me!

“Reliable seafood joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

This has slowly become an institution in Harvey Cedars, which really has no other significant seafood establishment.

It really is a joint--not enough parking, no reservations, rustic seating, etc. But, it serves down the middle, freshly prepared seafood. Our favorite is the lobster platter, for $21.95, which along with the lobster has mussels and corn. The grilled fish is also fine, as are the cold platters.

We go back every year. Just be prepared to wait if you go on a peak day--don't hesitate to call the restaurant and they can give you an idea of the best times to come and what the current wait times are. One way to avoid the lines is to call ahead and order takeout!
