“Recovered well from Superstorm Sandy”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Took a day trip "down the shore" to check out the area that we vacation. Wanted to see if the area was recovering well from Sandy. Met up with 4 friends who were doing the same. It was like they never skipped a beat. Great food and service.They give the meaning to "Jersey Strong" with regards to the recovery efforts. Will be back again in September! <:-D

“Wonderful Fish & Chips”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Asked locals for a good place to eat. After much discussion, they sent us to Mud City.

My wife and I had the mussels in garlic and white wine and the fish and chips. All were served perfectly. The cod was nice and flaky, and without excess oil. All was very fresh and I am confident
in recommending this for a casual lunch or dinner.

“Great crab cakes And other seafood”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We just had dinner in the newly renovated Mud city crabcake house after super storm Sandy did its damage. The restaurant was packed and the Crabcakes Were marvelous. As we were leaving we could see Many people waiting for a table. It's amazing how this crabcake house can pack them in consistently. This was the first weekend of the season and it looks like it will be a great one

“Fresh Seafood”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you don't mind waiting this is the perfect place for a casual eating experience. The New England clam chowder is very good and the mussels in garlic sauce is my favorite. Don't pass up Mud City's excellent crab cakes. Either as a sandwich or dinner the crab cakes are super. Enjoy.
