Seafood at the Shore

Staying in Lentnor and coming from L A where there is no decent seafood. Looking for great local seafood anyplace within 40 minutes from Ventnor or A.C I am not a fan of the Crab Trap ans already going to Docs.

      If it's 40 minutes, then take the ride up to Ex 82, follow the signs to Seaside Park/Island Beach State Park and you'll find the Atlantic Grill. Excellent.

        As much as I like the food scene in LA, I can never find a match for the lobsters and oysters at the Oyster Creek Inn, just north of AC.

          I'd second Oyster Creek Inn - you're in season for great blue claw crabs and Jersey corn. Just make sure you sit outside in Bill's Crab Room - not in the main restaurant, and watch the boats come in and smell the salty breeze....

          Mud City Crab House in Manahawkin off Exit 63 of the GSP was great. Ate there twice in the last week, better than anything in Cape May and WIldwood area.

            Mud City should be good. They won the crab cake cook off held at Monmouth Park last summer. There is the weekend of the 2010 one, Saturday and Sunday 12-5 Pm
