I had the surf and turf as well as oysters . The oysters bla , prep for the oysters was lackadaisical as noted during the oyster dish presentation. The streak was ok/ goodish. The shrimp and sauce was good. Desert was great . Service was great.

Stopped here for lunch while visiting the Jersey shore area. Flounder tacos and crabcake sandwich were very good. Manhattan clam chowder was disappointing. Mostly vegetables and practically no clams. Not worth the $5 pricen

The menu was moldy and dirty and not something you would ever give to a customer. their was bird crap on the bar; that's right bird crap. How could they have opened and not cleaned the bar counter? Finally, our drinks were made with... More

This location was last recognized for the best brunch in the area back in 2012. One must wonder why they have not earned that award since then. We were a party of 6 and politely seated on the covered, warm porch with a stunning view of the river. That was the highlight of the exp. other than the fresh oysters... More

For appetizers we had a special flatbread with a clam & mozzarella...EXCELLENT....For dinner, We had a Special Bouillbaise ( Lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp) in a tomato broth...We also had Scallop Santa Fe...BOTH Excellent...Our only complaints were that our waitress wasn't attentive for our refills on our drinks & we didn't get a salad with our meals...

I've been eating seafood from Kleins for years. Whether you're in the restaurant or the fish market you'll get fresh fish excellently prepared. At the market they'll steam it for you or give you great advice on how to prepare it at home which many do especially in the summer. In the off season I go to the restaurant more... More

We've been living in Asbury Park since May, and one of the few negatives is that there are no seafood restaurants on the water. But only three towns away you'll find is Belmar, and on the Shark River, Klein's Waterside Cafe. HUGE menu with every possible seafood dish you could imagine. Plenty of small plates, which is a nice option,... More

My husband and I dined on the patio Memorial Day at around 4:00p.m. There were not many other diners there at the time. When we were first seated the hostess tried to put us at a table with an umbrella flipped inside out and spinning around. I asked to be seated somewhere else with an umbrella that wasn't broken so...
