“DONT TELL TOO MANY PEOPLE!!!!!!!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

As a resident of marmora I hesitate to contribute to more traffic congestion on Rt 9, but Island Shore already attracts more than local folk. Food, service, and pricing are outstanding, and chef Allan will custom make any thing you wish as each meal IS made fresh. Even during winter, this nice little restaurant has a steady stream of customers ,which is a tribute to this gem. Combination plates are rediciously inexpensive, yet fresh and bountifull. Forget the coupons and deals offered at the here today gone tomorrow OC restaurant, go over the 34th st bridge and enjoy a great family spot

“Fresh and friendly”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Island Shore has excellent food and Chef Alan and his employees are always friendly and very accommodating. Vegetables are fresh and cooked just enough to be tender but crisp. Their steamed dumplings are fabulous as are their egg rolls and soups. One of Chef Alan's specialities is Shrimp of Marmora and one of my favorites. Noodles are covered in large steamed shrimp and a delectable rich cream sauce. Chicken with cashew nuts has a smooth and yummy brown sauce. Kung Pao chicken provides just the right amount of crispy vegetables and a spicey brown sauce. We have been eating here for 8 years and have always had a great meal! I highly recommend Island Shore, just 2 miles over the 34th St Bridge of Ocean City NJ.

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Just outside of Ocean City. We were pleasantly surprised at the diverse menu, great food and a BYOB to boot! More than just Chinese food. Various Asian inspired meals. Veggies cooked perfectly with just the right seasoning!

“One Hung Low is a One Mung High!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Island Shore or as I like to call it "One Hung Low" has the best steamed pork dumplings, egg rolls, and spare ribs I have ever eaten. I went there twice this summer and both times it was out of the ordinary chinese food. By that I mean it's way better than your typical P.F. Changs', Mr. Fongs', Mr. Woo Hoos', Mr. Ding Dong Chop Chops', Mr. Shang Hais', China Houses', Lucky Dragons', Red Leafs', and Oriental Cuisines' combined. It's that good. The food gets to your table quick too. The best part is you can order the whole menu without emptying your wallet! The food is not only good, it's also reasonable. Afterwards you can stop and get some frozen yogurt at a local place called the Custard Castle just up the street from One Hung Low. I'll talk about that in my next review. The best chinese food you will ever eat is right here.

“Best Chinese in Cape May County!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

My family has been buying our Chinese food here for the last 15 years. The staff is so friendly! I love the pork and shrimp eggrolls. The sweet and sour sauce is the really good stuff, always has cherries and pineapples in it.
