“Fish Market take out only review”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Place is always packed so inventory moves.

I stopped for the take out market several days...after being dissapointed with 2 other fish markets. Limited selection but quality of clams here was the best...

Only thing was they shorted a few each order....other markets had half dozen dead/mudded on each order - so they just need to pay attention to the counts for their customers.

“Great Place for Casual Dinner!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We went here the last time we were in town. Great for a casual night out. It is a BYOB and they do NOT take reservations. Expect to wait. If that is the case, you can sit outside on the porch and they will open your wine for you. Atmosphere is nothing special, but the food is delicious!

“A "must do" for our family.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

When we visit LBI there are a few "must do" places to make our visit complete. This is one of them. We love the rustic wood furniture and the big buckets of mussels! Large portions and good food make for a happy dinner with leftovers to spare. Love this place!

“Favorite restaurant on LBI”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

The seafood bisque was delish! and so was everything we had. The shrimp stuffed with crab imperial, the flounder, the super tasty chicken salad..we loved this place. Not particularly crazy about restaurants on Long Beach Island but can't wait to go back to this spot. It's a BYOB restaurant and there is a liquor store almost across the street. Cozy small place.

“Fresh fish nice atmosphere”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Went to celebrate our anniversary. Couldn't call ahead for reservations, so we had a 45 minute wait, but we opened a bottle of wine on the front porch. They provided glasses and an ice bucket - so the wait was pleasant. I had Maine lobster from the tank, which was fantastic. Service was ok, not great (had trouble getting water refills). BYO is a real plus for us, since we bring wine we know we'll like and don't have to pay 3x retail.

Overall a really pleasant place. Would be better if you could get reservations.
