Everything was good and fresh but the lobster was tough!

Lived her 15 years and never heard of this place. I can see why it is always busy. Great food and staff. Bit pricey but not bad for fresh seafood.

Very disappointed. I ordered a broiled combo meal with crab cake, scallops, shrimp and flounder. Crab cake was VERY light on meat, heavy on filler and mayo: shrimp was overcooked and tough, two scallops were each the size of a quarter. All served in a foil tin (with the flounder) and all sopping wet with grease. The onion rings were greasy, but good. Boom boom shrimp app was tasty. Would not eat here again as there are much better seafood offerings nearby and in Cape May. I initially gave this establishment two stars, but lowering to one now as my wife is presently puking up her linguine with clams. Overpriced. Go to Long John Silvers for better seafood than this place.

Thomas Cochrane

This place is absolutely amazing. If you want a true Maryland style crab cake, this is the place for you. Every crab cake I’ve had up and down the Jersey coast says Maryland style. They are fake and not very good. Take it from someone who has lived in Maryland all his life. This place will not disappoint. The owner is also a down to earth guy as well.

Evgenia Suhorukova

Very nice place, staff is great, food is yummy.

Denise Orlando

My husband and I started coming here a few years ago and now it is a tradition. Fresh seafood, seasoned perfectly and the servers are friendly.


An OK place to eat. The food was good, but not outstanding. Service was good. However, they were out of most of the best dishes: softshell crabs, blue crabs, and all the fish steaks. We got our entrees broiled which was good. I can't speak to how the fried entrees would be.

Disgusting. Over priced and the food felt like frozen food from a super market. Absolutly disgusting. The had a very small seafood selection. I ordered many plates and all were terrible.

Always a great meal and service.

Not fancy but the food is excellent and they are fast overall a very good dinner I had the broiled seafood platter which was flounder shrimp scallops in a crab cake they give you more than you can eat.

This is one of the best seafood restaurants in the Wildwood area. Seafood is very fresh and delicious. Menu had a good variety and you can get you order grilled or fried. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Just remember to BYOB.

ray pedrick

Fantastic entree of snow crabs!

Carol Springman

Great food! We wait all year to come here. Love it!

André Phan

Le prix pour le crabe est 2 à 3 fois plus cher qu'ailleurs

Raven Pedone

There have been way more good times had at this spot than bad. After coming here for years now, it's kind of expected, but overall the food is usually good and cooked just right. I'd suggest it to anyone who's down in Wildwood looking for some good tasting and averaged priced seafood. Also great for kids!

Chris Wimberg

Wide variety of fresh seafood breaded, fried or broiled. Coleslaw is perfect. (Not too mayonaisy)

Nicole McMurtrie

Best place for fresh seafood!

Lucretia L

Overpriced, the food was bland, the portions were small and the lobster was tough.

Gabriel Grossy

Awesomely good and fresh

Good portion sizes. Cole slaw was great. Prices seemed fair as far as seafood goes. Waitress was nice but had some issues with the chef when trying to determine what dishes were gluten free.

Joseph Misita

Everything about the fish factory is delicious.

Doug Quaid

Great sword fish. Got onion rings too and they were the best I've had in ages. Very popular. Parking can be tight.

Lonnie Gurreri

We always make time for a great seafood feast at the fish factory.

Tim Mahabir

Had the fried combo. Scallops and crab cake were delicious

Lillian Dutton

Chris S

Everything here is amazing! Absolutely amazing! My favorite is the crab cakes.

Kally P

Food was excellent: Shrimp, scallops, haddock, crab were all perfect and delicious - even the coleslaw with it's sweet vinegar dressing. All entrees, combos and platters come with coleslaw and one side. Onion rings and fries were not greasy but crunchy and great! Option of fried or broiled on your meal. Very small restaurant but well worth the wait. 5 booths, 2 four tops, 2 large tables to handle 6 or more. Cooler cases on other side of building that holds crabs, clams, oysters, etc. Check out the size of the Alaskan king crab legs. They have ready made packs of shrimp to grab and go. Order to go and take your meals home. Thanks to Taylor for the great service!

Harry Boardman

Great people good food

Frederick Abadilla

One of the best seafood restaurants down the shore

Crabs are really fresh! Gave 4* because i have not tried their other seafood. Nice casual place to dine.

Quiana Hamlett

Lawrence Culbreth-Thomas

The seafood was fresh and amazing. The service was above decent. The atmosphere was really chill and laid back with a sense of urgency, in a good way when it came to the people behind the counter. Food was the deciding factor from a 4 to a 5 review.

Jennifer Duffy

Excellent food, excellent service. Highly recommend The Fish Factory for both eat-in and take out.

John Johnson

Food was good

William Peckhold

dina para

Good food at an adorable price. No frills but fresh good food for eat in at their place

Anissa Hudson

The fish factory sells fresh seafood and it's really good. You can buy hot sauce and seasonings there too.

Ashley Colabove

Always a good meal. Scallops were to D.I.E. for!!! Never had a bad meal here!


The server was very polite, no wait, very fresh seafood, good prices. The atmosphere was very calm, quiet, always a plus when you just want good food and don't want to have to wear formal attire or go through any other hassles. Server also gave us a few tips about local places. Overall very good experience for my wife and myself. Only con was no bag for the food that we took home, but really not that big of a deal. We'll definitely be going back.

John S

Good basic seafood

Weiss Gary

I thought the food here was excellent it was very fresh very tasty and I was very satisfied with my meal at first glance I thought it might be a little bit skimpy but I'm stuffed as I walk out of the place I'm giving the rating on the food it's not a pretty place but it's not bad either not fancy I guess is the word. But I'm not eating the walls in the floor and the tables my only disappointment was with such high quality food they didn't have homemade tartar sauce not that there was anything wrong with the tartar sauce in the little cups I just would have liked to have seen homemade tartar sauce but it won't stop me from coming back.

Michael D.

Never again!! We sent back our two entrees as they were clearly overcooked and unappetizing looking. The waitress was clueless and said that's how we serve them. Overpriced food and small portions.


Absolutley amazing food and service. Our family has been visiting Wildwood for years and this is a must visit for us. The seafood is always fresh and they are generous with the portions. They food is cooked to perfection. I'm a fan of the dozen oysters as an appetizer and the fried combination platter (fried cod, scallops, shrimp and the best crab cake). The service is always so friendly and helpful. Last night Caitlin was our waitress and she was really attentive and welcoming. I would absolutely recommend this place...but fair warning it can get packed. So get there before 6 if you can to snatch up a table.

Brett Norton

We go here at least twice during our stay. Expensive but good quality food. Don't forget to ask for condiments and utensils as they don't come automatically in a take out order.

Dane Schroeder

Great seafood and great prices

Shelby Rome

My brother in law got food poisoning last night from undercooked scallops

Samantha Martin

Always get steamed shrimp here when we visit Wildwood. Priced reasonably. Always goid.

Mary Wilson

We come here every time we are in Wildwood Crest this place is awesome there fish is always fresh and delicious the staff is always very nice and helpful their food is excellent I would say four down the shore the prices are moderate they're not inexpensive but they're not extremely expensive but worth every penny

Nicholas Stebenne

Not worth coming here for fried seafood. Both flounder & cod sandwiches had no flavor. The fish was lost in the over doughy buns. Not even copious amounts tarter or cocktail sauce could save it! The fried squid was under cooked & mostly soggy. Our drinks had a weird mildew taste. The best dish was the Caesar salad. A bland decor with no charm leaves little to desire here!

mary sanares

Delicious grub, clean and fast service. Every time we go to wildwood we eat here. Nice size portions with lots of choices. They even deliver to your hotel. They are awesome.

Arthur Yaroshefsky

This is the best place to eat on vacation. The food is the best for many reasons. The wait staff is over the top because the food comes out so fast that they don't fool around. With that in mind there usually is not too long of a wait. The homemade cocktail sauce is the best. Eat in or to go it is worth the experience. They also have a food truck on diamond beach.

Roy Bishop

Was a little taken back by the atmosphere but have to say the food was amazing.Scallops were perfect!Service was fast and friendly.Will be back!

Keith Hughes

Food was good. But not 26 dollar an entree good, and the portion size is half of what you would pay elsewhere.

Michael De Laura

Both Ashleys are awesome.... Best..clean..seafood in town. MD

michael fuss


Great food and very friendly service

Kathrin Malukiewicz

We tried the fried flounder and fried cod. All you could taste is the breading. We are avid seafood fans and these fish definitely tasted like they were frozen. The clam chowder and lobster bisque were also room temperature. Sadly disappointed and not worth the money! We were kicking ourselves that we didn’t go to the boardwalk instead. Extra star because the place was clean and the people working were nice.

Jim Bononno

Dont eat there. Yuk

Minerva Fuentes

It's ok

Jim Thomson

Flounder was perfect stuff with crab meat!!

ALAADIN عبد ربه


Sal A

I can not comprehend how you can call your fried combination platter a Platter. It's more like a plate.!!! You need to come to Connecticut and show you what a Platter is !!! Really, tourist trap

Roger lake

This is my third time here and I have never been disappointed. Don't believe the few bad reviews the fish is fresh and the place is clean. Staff is friendly and quick to serve. We were told 45 min wait and we were only waiting like 20 minutes. I had the fried soft shel crab and it was excellent. Not to mention it's hard to find soft shell crab. Last time I had dungeons crab and it was quite the experience. It was like a cafeteria tray packed with little crabs. It's an event to sit and eat these things. This place is a must see. If your questioning it don't. The calamari was bland but was still fresh. The thing is the other food was so good I forgot all about that. We found a free shrimp platter coupon in our hotel flyer and it seemed to me everyone finds it.

Dan L

Great food at a great price. Blackened tuna tacos were awesome!!

davismt2 .

This was a very quaint establishment with great service and good seafood.

Patricia Infante

Been going here for years. Got seated, waited about 10 minutes. No water, not even an acknowledgment from the waitress that she was busy and would be wIth us soon. Left disappointed.

iggie dash101

We were here on vacation and came her for dinner, ....was excellent, and courteous service!!! Very enjoyable.

dave c

Small portions of OVERPRICED slop, served in disposable foil containers. Is this place even serious?

Andrew Hoshovskyj

Good, fresh, clean, fast.. can't be beat for simple, fast seafood. Love to stock up here on cooked and raw

Larry Brendler

Had the lobster bisque which was excellent and the linguine with white clam sauce which was, hands down, the best I have ever had.

Emad Al Bajjali

The price for portion size was too high and the lobster bisque was too cold, never go back

Karl Muessig

Fresh fish and we'll prepared

John Petullo

We love it here. Such good food and great staff. Fun place for everyone

NICE menu and definitely fresh seafood, excellent staff...but a bit pricey and not much atmosphere...beware of "market price" items listed on menu $$$$$$$$

Melynda Wilson-Horsch

Rick Hahn

Basement quality food at a penthouse price. At least the server was nice.

Mohamed Agami

John LoGiudice

Very fresh......great service too.

Super friendly staff great food

Alan Stewart

The Fish Factory is one of the worst food places I have gone to. There Shrimps Were Sweet, the shrimps were Disgusting. I don't know how people liked it. My family ordered several plates and they were all disgusting. I wish I can put a 0/5 but I can't. I read the reviews they are the opposite of what this place was. Why do they call it the Fish Factory? They have a very small selection of fish. There Fries came from a frozen bag that you can buy from a supper market. The food was a disgust.


Great food and great service a most go every trip. We love Frank (The Owner) he makes you feel loved and important even when the place is packed.
