This mom-and-pop fish eatery has the best seafood in all of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. Everything is fresh and delicious and they have an excellent variety of seafood. I eat here at least twice when I'm on vacation in Wildwood Crest.

The food here is very fresh and cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend any Seafood lover not to pass this place by as you will not regret it. For the non-Seafood lover, they offer a good selection of alternatives. The restaurant is small and basic. Do not expect anything too fancy about the atmosphere and service, so not too... More

We ordered food for delivery and the food was very good. There were 5 of us and we got enough food with lots of leftovers. The fried cod and fish tacos were very good.

We didn't have a chance to try this restaurant last year but this year we figured we will try it. And it was ok. We cannot say it was bad but it wasn't great either.

After reading the reviews I was a little worried that we weren't going to get a table but no need to worry. We were seated right away. The food was amazing! Fresh. Delicious. Priced right. BYOB. It is small inside but so worth it. Will definitely return. Kid friendly.

The seafood at the fish factory was the best we had in Wildwood area this year If you want nice atmosphere this is not the place but if you want good food this is the place My scallops broiled were terrific and my wife's stuffed flounder was also excellent Can't wait till next year to eat there again.

Thank J G
