“Skip the hook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Want super fresh seafood? You have to stop here. This place is owned by a brother and his sister. They are very attentive and well known by the locals. They stride on providing the freshest seafood in town. There oysters are to die for. The jumbo shrimp are just as good. Heck they have a menu so feel free to sit down and eat till your heart is content.

“"The Freshest Seafood Above Sea Level"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Ortley Fish Market is indeed a fish market and a great place to buy fresh, raw seafood. However, it does have two tables, and a staff that prepares seafood simply and effectively. I had broiled flounder, lobster, scallops, shrimp, and clams for $15.95!!! That included cole slaw and potato salad. My son had broiled scallops--and a generous portion at that--for $12.95. Ortley's is especially good if you enjoy seafood with minimal seasoning and preparation. You can't get fresher seafood!

“Fresh fish and takeout dinners”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

I buy my fresh fish at Ortley, and have tried their takeout items as well. Steamed lobsters, for a take-home treat, were cooked properly. Their seafood dinner take-outs were so-so, convenient but ordinary. I was surprised to get what seemed to me to be frozen breaded shrimp in my dinner, when fresh shrimp is on ice in the market. Please be aware this is not a restaurant, but a good, solid fish market and take out catering to the summer crowds.

PS: Welcome back after Sandy ravaged Ortley Beach!
