decent seafood in south jersey

Two questions: Are there any decent seafood places left in south jersey? I live in Voorhees, NJ and would travel to Philly if I had to. I'm looking for eat-in, take out, cheap, or expensive.
Does anyone have any experience with Ponzio's Diner in Cherry Hill? Thank you.

  1. Not sure about seafood because I don't eat it but you should get plenty of help from the south Jersey chowers on that question. Ponzio's used to be our family's go to spot because they had a HUGE menu with something on it for everyone in the group. Recently they have scaled down the menu, eliminating many items and at the same time reducing the overall quality of the food. I don't know what is going on. Maybe it has new owners. It just doesn't seem as good as it used to be, but what is?

    1. Check out Ritz Seafood on Rt 561 in Voorhees. A Little Tuna in Haddonfield used to be good - haven't been there in a while. Max's in Gloucester is worth a visit too.

      1. i'll second ritz seafood. i have consistently enjoyed eating there. really delicious food prepared perfectly. i wish i could say the same for little tuna as it's down the corner from us. i have been underwhelmed there the past few times i have gone and have decided that i am not going back. it's mediocre at best.

        why not give sagami a go? we went back recently after a long hiatus and were thrilled with it.

        1. Pelican Fish in Washington Twp has excellent seafood, we have never had anything less than a great meal...

          1. My favorite place so far is Ritz Seafood. Don't fall for their "signature appetizer" though...very disappointing. However, I have eaten here a few times and always leave happy. Food is fresh, and well prepared in creative (but not far out) ways.

            Little Tuna (Haddonfield) was ok, but not nearly as good as the Ritz. You can check out my review at

            Some friends also highly recommend Emerald Fish on Route 70 in Cherry Hill. I've heard it's as good as Ritz, but haven't had the chance to try it yet.
