This restaurant rivals many of the genuine New England clam shacks local to me. The prices were reasonable and the servings were generous. The service was warm and attentative. The lobster roll was delicious. The clam chowder was a big hit too.

Nice cozy place, ton of great options to select, my favorite the muscles in white wine and the Connecticut Lobster roll. It’s a small restaurant come early to enjoy good meal and if a group of four or more make reservations.

Fresh its the only word to describe the food, I loved it the Lobster roll platter, lobster bisque, fish and chips, Clam chowder. Its a must visit when in New Jersey its worth the trip.
