It was an excellent family experience and it is also a great place to go for excellent seafood at a very reasonable price for what you get. I definitely recommend this to anybody visiting a Wildwood area. You won't be disappointed.

Although it's a wee bit pricey(what isn't ) the food is good and the wait is tolerable . The owner also makes a home style gravy for his red entrees, Not Bad. Give it a try.
