“Great Food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you are looking for fresh, great food, in a simple atmosphere, then this is the place to go. Everything is fresh and served promptly by the staff. You really get a great meal for a reasonable price. Very simple inside, but well worth the stop. You will not be disappointed. Give it a try

“Simple, straightforward seafood shack”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This place is always bustling, but I've never had a wait. Service is prompt and friendly. They give you oyster crackers and horseradish to snack on while you wait (much to the delight of my husband). Salads are fresh and every soup I have tried has been very good. Dungeness crab legs are a hefty portion. Husband liked the crab cakes and the shrimp. All very fresh. Nice, casual vibe. BYOB.

“Authentic Shore Dining”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Do you remember going to the shore for a seafood dinner? This place reminded us how good, local, small independently owned shore restaurants use to be. This part of NJ is so nice. This place is so authentic. We like clams and enjoyed the fried clam dinner. Hope you get a chance to try it.

“Not Fancy, Just Great Food”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We have been coming here for several years and recently took friends for their first taste - they loved the place. Its BYOB which we like and the specials are always good. We always start with oysters on the 1/2 shell as they are consistently good. All four dinners that night were excellent and served hot. I suggested a side of shrimp salad with our dinners and it was very good. We took desert home as we were all full, the dark side of the moon cake is the best I have ever had. Just another great little funky "Jersey" seafood place that my wife and I enjoy going to. If you are in the area give it a try, if you like it grab a t-shirt.

“Fresh Seafood that makes the visit worthwhile”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Nothing fancy and totally lacking in atmosphere, Allen's Clam Bar has very fresh seafood. Everything we've tried has been very good. I prefer the New England Chowder but the red is also tasty. It is BYOB so having a liquor store across the street is handy. There is a small deck outside, but Allen's in on Route 9 and the traffic can be a distraction.
