“Worth the Wait!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This one of the best seafood in OCNJ! I usually has a wait, but well worth it! My favorite is the Stuffed Shrimps which are broil in a yummy bit of lemon & my hubby gets the crab cakes. The salads are all homemade. If you like clams on half shell they serve them icy cold!! my mouth is watering already!

“excellent!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The food here is so fresh and all cooked to perfection- it is our go to place when we are in the mood for great seafood. The nice thing is, if the restaurant is too busy, you can call their seafood market up on 9th street and get takeout or fresh fish to cook at home. We have done this when we have had large groups. You won't be disappointed! Don't forget to get some of 'Cindy's homemade key lime pie'-yummm...

“Excellent and Inexpensive”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

This is a fine place to take the family out for dinner over the summer at the New Jersey Shore. It is inexpensive. It is dry (no alcohol is served) since it is in Ocean City. There is also a take out establishment by the same name that has really excellent seafood and chicken-- we all but live there over the summer in the sense that we buy there almost every weekend all summer. The take out establishment is not as inexpensive as the restaurant, but the quality is superb.

Reviewed 1 January 2014

Overall the restaurant is very small, but the service and food are good. I dont recommend this restaurant if you are claustrophobic!

“Twice in three days”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Every year when we go to OC this restaurant is a destination. We took a 3 day get away in Sept.
and had dinner there twice. Yes there was a wait but it was worth it. We like to eat on the patio. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the staff friendly. If you order seafood you can't go wrong. We had lobster, shrimp cocktails, and clams. For the deep fried clams they had to send to their seafood store. Not a long wait for them at all. We had just finished our appetizers. Definitely will eat there next year!
