We stopped in for dinner after hearing very good things about this place. There aren't a lot of choices on the menu but you don't need a lot of choices. When you are on the water, you get the catch of the day (which was tuna). The meal wasn't fancy, but it was good. I got a very generous piece... More

If you are looking for something different, this is the place. Doesn't look like much from the outside but give it a try. The fish is so fresh everyday. Really enjoy the tacos. Any fish you wish they will grill and the mango sauce is very good. Great taste and there are two tacos and enough for two people. Try... More

We've been here before and had to stop by once again during our wildwood annual family vacay. I love seafood and this hit the spot. We ordered a dozen of medium crabs, $25.00 the larger ones are 40.00 I think. The ones we ordered were a decent size though and they even threw in one extra crab for good measure.... More

Fresh and tasty. Not budget friendly though. I thought with the set up (a shack), it would be cheaper and friendlier. The staff was helpful and nice. Would definitely go back. Parking can be tricky [we parked on the side of the road]

Great family run operation. The hot/dirty crabs couldn't be fresher. In fact, a truck pulled up to unload several bushels and one bushel burst at the seams and a few dozen live crabs scattered and tried to make their escape. There was no cover charge for this audience participation floor show. On the day I was there, they didn't have... More

Great little spot with a beautiful backdrop. All the seafood we had was super fresh! I'm pretty sure they do their own fishing. The menu is a bit pricey, but i never mind paying for good food. My wife and I ate dinner here while on vacation in Wildwood. And we would definitely eat here again. We had the peel... More

You only have today and tomorrow to enjoy this succulent soup . 9/12 -9/13 Really many claim to have the best but this place sells out . It's the place on the right hand side driving into wildwood via rio grande . It's the run way where you see the houses on the marsh. You can sit outside and eat... More

Relatively small space. About 6-5 benches with umbrellas. Fairly clean space and quick service. Food was good and fish very fresh. Nothing out of this world and menu is fairly limited. Considering this this is a bit outdoorsy simple setup, prices were quiet steep. By the looks of it, crab seems to be the most sought after. We were in... More

This is how seafood should be eaten. Fresh from the boat with no over-the-top frills. The fish tacos with homemade pineapple salsa were delicious! Try them with a little bit of Hank's Camouflage Hot Sauce (locally made). Everyone was friendly and carefree!
