We've been there twice, once being in the summer when we sat outside. The tilapia had more breadcrumbs than fish and the accompaniments were just average. Nothing seemed really fresh. Tried it during the holidays and my opinion has not changed sampling the shrimp and and vegetables. I was somewhat disappointed in the overall experience.

The food is fresh and well prepared. I am allergic to Lobster and can always find something good. My family ordered both the 1.5 pound lobster and the 3 pounder and were very pleased. The staff is attentive and accommodating.

Made the mistake of going there Valentines Day evening. Had reservations, was seated promptly, ordered and that's when it started going bad. Appetizer was calamari and it was warm and rubbery. My seafood sampler was small, fish and scallops were under cooked and scallops had no taste to them. We also got a lobster tail that was over cooked and... More

I live in a beach town on the water, but I go to the Lobster House in Freehold township for Lobster Rolls. Made with large chunks of fresh, steamed lobsters on a delicious roll served with cole slaw and their in-house made chips. I have visited several times and was never disappointed. My companions on one visit ordered crab cakes... More

We were excited to try a new seafood place. Nothing fancy, you can BYOB, or purchase wine there. Service was good. Wait staff friendly. The tilapia oreganato was recommended. It was mushy and lacked flavor. I should have sent it back. The Manhattan clam chowder was very flavorful and would have been a winner, but needed more clams and vegetables... More

The food was pretty good, We got 3 different appetizers. The one that I ordered was scallops wrapped in bacon. It was very good, but they only gave you 4 and the price for 4 was $13, which was way overpriced in my opinion. I had the scallops meal for dinner and it was very good. Everyone seemed to be...

Came here with my family about a month ago. Nice place with very good food and large portions. Service was average but it didn't ruin our meal. Prices were very fair and we will be back.

Fell short of expectations. Food was poorer quality than "Recent Reviews" suggested. Thought we would find good quality moderate priced seafood; not our experience. The New England chowder was poor with rubber like clams, poor consistency & taste. Service was slow even though the restaurant was not crowded when we were seated; 1/2 hour to get our orders of crab... More

A delightful find and so worth a visit. The restaurant is in a restored historic building surrounded by a shopping center. Stopped in at lunch, but plan to go back for dinner.
