  1. For kids...the Rusty Nail at The Beach Shack. All 3 meals.

    1. Great burgers "Ugly Mug". Had one there with crab meat on top quite tasty!!!

      1. Just got back from 5 days in Wildwood Crest/Cape May area. My kids loved three seafood shack-type places. One was H&H seafood in Cape May (just before the toll bridge). Tried blue crabs for the first time (crack your own). Good steamed clams. A few tables seemed to be enjoying their lobster. Girls really liked cracking the crabs and the fact that your "plates" are giant trays. The second was Junior's (we went after a visit to the Cape May Zoo - highly recommended - esp. if a cloudy day). Crab cakes, steamed clams, fluke. My favourite was Hooked Up seafood truck in Wildwood. Best clam chowder I have ever eaten and delicious fish tacos and grilled tuna sandwich. Girls liked eating on the dock and watching the boat they use to catch their fish unload.
