We were looking for a restaurant that served breaded fried shrimp. This place did not disappoint. They served a shrimp dinner with fries. The portion was large, several members of our group could not even finish their meal. We also ordered fish and chips, a crab cake sandwich and a burger. All the food was excellent and the portions were large. For dessert we ordered chocolate cake and tiramisu cake. Both desserts were outstanding.

One star for location only!
Over priced, horrible service. Tipped 10% and that was generous for the service. Sat 15 mins before offered a drink . Ordered 2 Manhattans that came in ridiculously undersized glasses. Wait again 15, looking for bread or napkins. Hailed a bus boy, please get our waitress we need water. Again water in tiny glasses. All the other tables had big goblets with napkins in them. Nope not us. Hailed the waitress , can we please have some bread, (our reservation was 730 we are hungry. )She tells us we cannot have any bread yet because we didn't get our appetizer! Are you serious??
My husband got the crab cake it was over sized and look like crab was put through a food processor!
Definitely not a hand packed crabcake held together with very little stuffing not here . I ordered the crab stuffed lobster same process mixture stuffed in a lobster shell very little lobster! I spent five days in Wildwood crest and this was my worst meal worst experience. Don't waste your money.

View of the bay was beautiful. Our apps and dinner were outstanding. I had a lobster steamed to perfection and my son had the filet. We both loved it, Great service, friendly and attentive, New dining room was clean and modern. Outdoor dining room and bar looked nice as well. We will be back.

We were taking care of perfectly by our waitress Ashley. We came to celebrate my Grandfather's 90th birthday to kick off his birthday month! We loved our dinner and the great service! Crab cakes and prime rib were the highlights! Yum! Thanks Wharf!

We were a Party of 9 and they took great care of us. The Sicilian calamari appetizer was the best thing I ate all week. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Will return for sure!
