“Step Back in Time and stroll the bay”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

Still trying to get into the 21st Century the Bay area hangs onto that old fishing town look. It's nice to stroll along the bay after a meal at one of the resturants. The back round is changing from mostly Italian to Russian but still the food is good. Look across the water to Manhattan Beach (the original not the one from California) and see multi millon dollar homes with perfect lawns. The Bay looks a little dingy especially in winter but a stroll along the water will cheer you up. The fishing fleet is still there for over 100 years and the marina. All sorts of boat trips are available. It's a far cry from Disney land the hustle and bustle of the 21st century keeps trying to creep in but Swans swimming in the bay add a magic to the water front town.

“Great Fishing Spot”
Reviewed 23 November 2004

Sheepshead Bay is a great fishing spot, but it is also a huge marina. You can rent a boat or travel on a party boat to fish. There are tons of good restruants and places to shop around the area.
