A Take-out specialty place with outside dining also. Great Seafood, especially their Cajun specials. Home made cole slaw superb.

It's tough to find a traditional clam shack kind of place on LBI. Pinky's is about at close as you are going to get. The shrimp were definitely fresh but nothing special covered in a bready batter. If you are looking for a taste Summer this would definitely do the trick but it's not going to leave you feeling completely... More

Sorry Paulie, D and the others who compared it to Mcd's and the use of wasteful to go containers, etc . . . . listen, I notice a lot of things too, but people, you are at an oudoor eatery and I hope you didn't expect the food to be served on porcelain? We stopped on LBI on our way... More

My family of 4 went to Pinky Shrimps on our first night in LBI as it was close to our rental house and walkable. At first we were kind of excited about the offerings. We had: BBQ baby back ribs (a la carte), Frankie's Famous Fish Kebabs, the Super Shrimp Supper, the Blackened Salmon Sandwich (not blackened), and the Chicken... More

I ordered the fish kebabs which came with a skewer of tuna and a skewer of swordfish. I've had both before elsewhere and enjoy them. The swordfish was delicious and great. When I went to eat the tuna, it was mushy and smelled like it was going bad. I went back to the register inside and asked the cashiers what... More

It's part of the essence of LBI. The staff are largely college-aged, friendly, and helpful. You place your order, give your first name, and wait outside at picnic tables until they call your name. It's not cheap, but it seems nothing is on LBI. That's not a complaint -- it's worth it, we come back yearly for a week's vacation.... More

Mussels marinara and fried shrimp platters are the best. So much food you will never leave hungry. The staff is always very friendly and knowledgable. Their key lime pie is awesome too. LBI has great seafood, if you're looking for a casual night out this would be a place to go.

Really a take-out restaurant. They have picnic tables outside for those wanting to eat there. Ordered quite a bit of food the other night. Then ordered a lobster....$15.00 a pound. They charge a $3.00 "cooking" fee for lobster. I explained that we just ordered 5 other meals why would they charge me to boil water and cook a lobster as... More

Love coming here for lunch, bring a 6 pack and relax outside at one of their picnic benches. We always get shrimp , oysters and onion rings! The onion rings are so good ! But of course the oysters and shrimp are fantastic too!

Today was our last day in LBI and this place was a great ending to an amazing week. The lobster bake for 2 people is out of control good with more than enough food for a very reasonable price. We will definitely have to come back to this place for years to come.
