Average food at the classic beach town fish eatery. The prices are high, the portions are medium, and the flavor is light. The main positive is the nice staff, but for take out try something near the bay (Hooked Up) or in North Wildwood (Ricks).

Average seafood place. Small portions and large pricetags but you expect that around the shore. Wouldn't return, but it was overall ok.

Taking out sea food or staying at the restaurant the food can't be beat. It was ten years since visiting Wildwood Crest and the food lived up to our memories! Staff very friendly. This place is one to visit again.

This mom-and-pop fish eatery has the best seafood in all of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. Everything is fresh and delicious and they have an excellent variety of seafood. I eat here at least twice when I'm on vacation in Wildwood Crest.

The Fish Factory is a small establishment and it depends on when you are in the area. When I went in June there wasn't a large crowd. As the reviewer above stated; it's best to call ahead.
