We dine out at least three time per week. Our go to restaurant for awesome, fresh seafood is Naversink Fishery. Best clams and arugula salad. Rare to find our favorite trout always on the menu. Stuffed flounder is great. If you don't have room for the key lime pie, take a piece to go. If you want fresh seafood, great... More

The freshest seafood. The guy helped me pick exactly what I was looking for and I didn't know the name of the fish. He also told me what type of wine would go with the fish and even what ty of sides he eats with the fish. Very good customer service. Love this place

After being disappointed the last two times we were there (about a year or so ago) we decided to give the Navesink Fishery another go. We arrived with another couple at 6:25pm and told there would be a brief wait for a table for four. While waiting, a couple came in and were seated at a table for four....interestingly there...

Small cozy place with artificial flowers in summer time. Good food, but nothing special. Close early.

Food is always wonderful here. I Love their flounder and my husband loves the shrimp dishes. Service is great too. Small restaurant with a home style feeling. We enjoy our hometown restaurants.

This is where we "locals" go for great food. As the name suggests, it's mostly seafood, but there are other things on the menu. The front of the restaurant is a seafood market, so if you like say the clam chowder or the crab cakes, you can buy some more to take home. The staff is very friendly, and will... More

Navesink Fishery is an interesting mixture of a fish market and restaurant that has a unique homey atmosphere about it. My wife and I stopped by today to check out their take-out menu for lunch. We ended up ordering a large New England Clam-Chowder, and a Fried Shrimp Platter to go so we could enjoy our lunch down by the... More
