This is our favorite place to eat when visiting the Jersey Shore. The specials are delicious and the service is always top notch. Yes, you do have to wait, but it is worth it!

We always enjoy eating here, usually once every summer. It's not a fancy "fine dining" kind of place, nor it is a diner or fast food, it's a traditional seafood restaurant that specializes in good, fresh seafood. It's the kind of place that has oyster...More

Better going early, especially on weekends. Very large restaurant, but wait can be long. Active bar crowd, Thursdays have 1/2 price appetizers at bar. Frequently have a live band and active dance crowd. Large menu, salad included. Nice size portions.

At first glance place sort of reminded me of a lot of the more touristy, large seafood places at the Jersey shore (which more often than not leaves you wondering why you waited so long to eat there). But the food was really quite good...More
