We went here for Tuesday night kids eat free.. 6 adults and 5 small children. It took over an hour to get our food. Crab cakes were average at best, salmon was tasteless and penne was greasy and gross. Plus,they do not have a changing table for kids. How do you market kids eat free to attract families and don't...

The place was clean, neat, but nothing special. The server was an order taker, not someone that would engage the diner. He didn't offer any suggestions or describe any of the dishes or make a suggestion...all he offered was, the veggie tonight is green beans (did described if they were steamed, sautéed, or raw). She started with a bowl of... More

We ate here with a group of 11 including 2 toddlers and a baby. It was a good place for a family with kids. The crabcakes were really good. I am always afraid to get crabcakes at a new place because so often they are full of filler and these were all crab meat. Very good! The fish we ordered... More

We ate dinner the night after we visited Quohogs restaurant and all agreed liked Oceanside better. We ordered the steamers and mussel trays - they were excellent. Fresh tasting and served hot and plenty. I had the seafood sampler (lobster, scallops, flounder and shrimp) and it was also fresh and yummy. I would get it again in a heard beat.... More

usually we eat here twice on our trips to Stone Harbor/Avalon. Most recently we dined here August 19th for dinner. Our party of 4 (adults 2 kids) had no wait for a table at 645 although it was busy. It's BYOB so plan ahead and stop at Fred's first for beer or wine. I have some food allergies and can't... More

We ordered lobsters, crab cakes, steamed shrimp, and crab cocktail claws from Oceanside for my mother's birthday party on the shore. Everything was very tasty and fresh. It wasn't mind-blowing, but it was good for what it was -- nice, fresh, simply prepared seafood.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews and a hankering for our Jersey shore seafood experience, selected Oceanside for our beach week seafood outing. We were pleasantly surprised by the no-frills but clean-looking interior, hoping that this indicated a singular focus on quality and preparation of fresh seafood. Strike one when we were seated in a half-banquette right next to the main traffic... More

Just your basic seafood shack in a shore town but the lobster roll really stood out here--fresh, nicely seasoned and plenty of it, with a nice side of fries. Can also recommend other lunch staples like crab cakes and the fried oyster po' boy. Good-quality, straight-ahead fare.

My husband and another friend of ours enjoy eating lobster tail when dining at the shore. By far, they both voted Oceanside Seafood as having the best lobster. Lobster was not the only delicious item on the menu. Our large group of family and friends found all the dishes to be tasty and delicious. The service was excellent and the... More
