This restaurant is not very big but very busy on a Friday night for dinner. Excellent service and the fish dinner was outstanding! You could tell everything was very fresh. Prices were very reasonable :)

This place is DELICIOUS. I can't say it enough. My boyfriend and I absolutely stuffed our faces. It's nothing fancy and I was in sweatpants (because that's what you wear in wildwood, don't judge me. Lol) I won't forget that linguine and shrimp anytime soon....More

I rarely post negative reviews, but I really hate that we spent $60 (excluding tip) on such a mediocre lunch. The calamari appetizer ($10) tasted like it was from the frozen foods aisle of the supermarket . The fish in the fish tacos was tasteless...More

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.
