My husband and I go to Spike's all winter for lunch. There are no lines and the service is relaxed and friendly. It is a tiny, hole-in-the-wall local fish shack with maybe 15 tables that fill up fast in the summer. All fish is broiled -- there are NO fried dishes on the menu! Soups are fantastic -- lobster bisque, lobster chowder, jambalaya, Manhattan or New England clam chowder. A bowl is a meal! Good appetizers are the Spike's Appetizer with raw oysters and clams and steamed shrimp. The peel-and-eat shrimp are good, too. For the main course, you can't go wrong with plain old broiled fish of the day, especially the flounder. Dinner specials vary, but if the Boatman's Stew is on the menu, that is worth getting! Restaurant is BYOB and will provide ice buckets and wine glasses. Dessert menu are various pies; we are usually too full to order, but occasionally have room for the pecan pie and coffee. Just a nice, quiet local spot to enjoy some very fresh fish.

Been here a few times. Stopped by for lunch. Had the special half a sandwich and a cup of chowder. Flounder sandwich was beautiful, not your typical breaded and deep fried. Fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. No view, no fancy digs. Just great fish.

This place is way too full of itself. Its fresh fish but the wait and attitudes in this place negate the just caught, fresh fish.
And, of course, then there's eating outside in the gutter breathing in car exhaust fumes!!

This is always a must stop for us when we visit the Point Pleasant Beach area. Lobster Bisque and Blackened Tuna Bites! Mmmmmm!

Is a fish market with some tables for dinner. The fish is always fresh and well prepared. Note that it is a small restaurant and in the summer there will be a long wait to get in, but is worth the wait.
