Unbelievable Seafood Experience – Stopped on our way home and boy are we glad we did. The location alone is worth
the stop. We got there shortly after it opened, the meals were fantastic, ambience
was right out of Hemingway. I took many pictures of the outside...was like a postcard.
Anytime we are at the NJ shore we will be stopping at the Oyster Creek Inn. Please
don't change a thing!
Best Fresh Seafood – The Oyster Creek Inn is a great seafood restaurant. I love seafood and this was the best fresh seafood I have had recently at the shore. The early bird special included soup, salad, rolls, dinner and desert. I ordered the broiled flounder and my son ordered the fried flounder. I highly recommend this restaurant for the fresh food, atmosphere (on the water, with view) and the great service.
Need an Oyster Creek in California – That last review was way off the mark. I have been in California for some time now but as a jersey girl at heart, the Oyster Creek Inn has been and remains one of my favorite places for great seafood and great atmosphere. I wouldn't advise you to order a fried combo when there is such a selection of daily specials. Every time i return home, this is the first stop for dinner. I have never been disappointed. On our last trip in May, we had an outstanding salmon special, crab meat, brie cheese, asparagus in a sauce that was excellent. We also ordered the Mahi special w/ grilled shrimp and onions, wow. A fresh tuna special over a green salad w/ crab meat was also a great choice. We go to the Oyster Creek and expect at least a 30 minute wait, especially in the summer. We get a cocktail or two and sit outside and just enjoy the view. As for the service, it is always great. The wait staff is efficient and very friendly. On the night we were there, a table next to ours was celebrating a birthday. The waitresses and even the bus boy all took time to sing to an elderly woman and had the whole room involved in the song, shouting out her name so we could all sing. you could see on her face how much she enjoyed it. A nice touch. It always nice to see the same faces on the wait staff, with a few new ones. This is not a place that will hire teenagers or college kids to get them through the busy season. We have been there in December and have seen the same waitresses that we have seen in May. So next time you are looking for great food, great view, a cold drink and alot of fun, go to the Oyster Creek. And don't forget about the popcorn! This is our family favorite in Jersey. There a few places like it here in Cali. but nothing compares to good seafood, family and friends at the "Jersey Shore". Go and enjoy and tell them the "jerseygirlincali" sent ya!!!
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!! – My family and I had the worst experiance at this dump. The wait was about 45 min and it wasnt even that buisy, after we were seated our server was very rude, and frankly didnt smell to good. I ordered the fried sea food combo and when it came it tasted like the greese hadnt been changed for days, and the french fries tasted like they were mixed w/ the fish fryers. I did read the the good reviews on this place and wish I could say the same good things, maybe we were just there on an off night, but my family and I will never go back, first impressions are everything.
Great variety of seafood – We had friends visit us from Buffalo New York and went to Smithville to visit the winery, From there we were going to have dinner at the Sweetwater Casino. However it was getting late in the day and it is easy to get lost if you dont know your way.. While visiting the winery, I asked the salesperson where there was a good seafood restaurant nearby. They mentioned Oyster Creek Inn. Our friend had the Lobster dinner which he raved about. All our dinners were great and my husband and I are planning on going back for my birthday. Great place. We use to go boating in the great bay and had we known about Oyster Creek we would have attempted to take our boat there.
Freshest seafood in south Jersey – If your kids love seafood, bring them! Its a family type restaurant in a lovely setting on the bay. We arrived at 5:30pm on a saturday and had a 10 minute wait. If you arrived too much later, the wait was a lot longer. By 6:30pm I watched people leaving without eating. The wait was up to 1 1/2 hours. The dress is casual. The food is so fresh. Our waitress Terry, was very nice and efficient. She worked hard. Its worth the drive from central Jersey. You will not be disappointed!
A fun neat place, excellent "boat" bar, but busy on summer weekends – Before I went on vacation, there was only one review of The Oyster Creek Inn on this website, and I admit I was a little put off by it. As it turns out, the reviewer obviously had not been to this particular establishment. Either that or they have a vendetta with the place. The same goes for another review that has popped up since, and I honestly think that they are truly mistaken, and were not at this restaurant. The main attraction to the Oyster Creek Inn is its location. It is out in the middle of nowhere, in the marsh land of Leeds Point. Boaters pull up and park on the dock. The boat bar room is a big waiting area with free popcorn from a big popcorn machine. The bar is pretty cool, well-stocked and unique. Our bartender was a young girl and we enjoyed talking with her. I hadnt been to the Oyster Creek Inn in over twenty-years, and it was just as I had remembered it. It has a very retro/northern feel. We really did have a good time, but . . . there are some things that might annoy somebody. The wait time for a table can be pretty long, an hour or more on a summer weekend, but hey thats because the place is so darned popular. The food was good. It wasnt incredible or out-of-this-world. It was good. The price for a meal was average. The price wasnt good. It was average. The bottom-line is that it is a neat place, in a neat location, with good food at a usual price, and the ambiance is cool. Furthermore, its a pretty big place and it gets really crowded, especially on summer weekends. Our wait staff was extremely rushed, probably more then any place else Ive been in recent years. We understood. They werent trying to be rude, but dont expect much in the way of chit-chat.
A Seafood Gem Hidden in Leeds Point – I've been going to this place for the past 25 years. Although the food has changed slightly over the years it still has the best seafood! The atomsphere is great. Perfect for families. Its right on the bay. You can pull up in your boat, dock and eat. You can sit outside in the raw bar and grab a drink or go inside and have a sit down seafood meal. I highly reccommend the crab bisque!
