“Dont leave the island without eating seafood here!”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Long Beach Island is the most beautiful place but the high end restaurants feature NY prices and the worst food ever. Dont miss the Chowder Hut for a simple inexpensive feast. Once a season, we treat ourselves to a fried food fantasy at this place and always leave happy. We eat the Captains Platter and if we have room, finish with an ice cream cone.

There is an outside area behind which is clean but not fancy. Sometimes the fans from the restaurant are a little loud.

One of my Island favorites!

“Great shore chowder and clam strips.”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

This walk up shack has it all. I recommend the fried clam strips and new England clam chowder. It offers outside picnic tables but is close to bay village. It's a nice beach comfort meal before heading off to the amusement park or shopping in town.

“Delicious New England/Manhattan Chowder”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

I have not had a chance to try their full menu, but the New England Chowder to go is a meal in itself. Occasionally there is a line, but it goes quick. All seating is outside, but it is a great place to get a quick bite. The chowder reheats well, but do not try and freeze it as the contents tend to separate.

“funky cool patio, good seafood, tourist trap”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

The patio could be so much cooler with just a little effort...Menu is a surprise...A lot of fried seafood, but also had grilled tilapia, salmon sandwiches...
Ordered salmon sandwich and deep fried soft shell crab sandwich...Both were pretty good...
Once again, could have been better with just a little more effort...It was fun to try, not a complete waste of time...Probably won't go back...Tourist trap of sorts...
