I was very disappointed in this place. I grew up in Denville and remember going to Denville Seafood with my parents when I was a kid, so when I was looking for a place to eat I decided to go there. First, it was pricey. I was a little surprised but decided I would treat myself to the fried shrimp... More

Our family loves the delicious lobster bisque at our traditional family dinner on Christmas Eve. It is also very popular with others, so people line up before the store opens early in the morning. My husband is the designated shopper that morning, needles to say we all sympathize with him because the weather is always chilly and the wait in... More

If you crave fresh seafood at a fair price--this is the place to go...The restaurant is tied to a very busy seafood market...Items may disappear off the menu if they run out which proves they shop daily and don't freeze their seafood unlike chain restaurants....Its casual dining in a recently renovated dining room---we find the back dining area cozy on...

A think it was over priced for the small portions. Lobster bisque was amazing! Had fried haddock, crab cake and shrimp. Crab cake was ok but a little over seasoned and couldn't taste the crab. Fish was very bland. Probably would't visit again.

Since this place got renovated, portions are extremely smaller, for extremely high prices. Went here for my moms birthday and both of us ordered 31 dollar lobster. It was the size of a child's fist per dish.... I was still starving after... didn't even give us the full lobster tail as it states on the menu. 31 dollars for a... More

Visited Denville Seafood for the first time. It was really delicious. We started off with the New England Clam Chowder, that was some of the best Clam Chowder I have had in a long while. It was loaded with clams and had wonderful clam flavor. It was also quite peppery and had wonder herb flavor that did not over power... More

Met friend for dinner. This restaurant is BYOB. Friend had crab cakes, I had 1lb. of steamers, delicious! No sand and very tasty. Friend enjoyed her crab cake, so I took one home for hubby. He enjoyed it also.

I have lived in Denville for 40 years and this has always been my go to place for the best seafood around. Their fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. After the hurricane, it was wonderful to see the addition to the restaurant. You can never go wrong with this place. Take out or dine-in. Excellent. Expect to pay... More
