The wait was very long, and longer than the projected 45 minute wait time. I have never had better fried shrimp, and they were served hot. I liked the squash, beans, and broccoli accompaniment, although they were a bit too garlicky for my taste. The baked potato and cole slaw were fine but nothing to write home about. My partner loved the lobster macaroni and cheese, though it was tepid, at best. Wish they served rolls before meals are brought out. Enjoyable outdoor seating.

Food was good but expect a very long wait. Parking is also a challenge. Staff is friendly but rushed.

What a joke. Waited about 45 Mins for edamame and a seawood salad. When eel avocado finally came they forgot the eel. When main courses finally showed, the bronzino was ice cold. Unreal. Will never be back. Not kidding.

If it weren’t for Klein’s views of Shark River or live music and outside ambiance... it wouldn’t be all too great because the food was just OK. The happy hour is pretty good! My boyfriend and I got $2 oysters, $1 clams, $5 Margarita, $2 draft bud light and other small plates for only $5. We did wait a while for our food but it was busy. Food was kind of dry. Oysters were awesome. It was fun.

Not worth the price . Sockeye salom was overcooked, even though asked for rare.
Tasteless. Scallops were th same. I’ve had better in central Pa. sad as this place was great.
