I have no idea how this guy stays in buisness. I asked for some New England clam chowder and clams on the half shell. They asked if I wanted it hot. I was like what I said to myself because I never ever walked into a place and had cold soup. They said they heated it up . I got home the soup had a nice chill to it. Now the clams... Anywhere you go you get clams on the half shell they will Ice them and almost dig them out of the shell. Well on the ride home there container started leaking clam juice all over my car plus there was no ice. Now I went to eat them and this guy just hacked the clams and they were loaded with shell peices. I called up and asked about the clams and I was told I opened clams for 30 years dont tell me about clams. I got no offers to do anything so I just threw out $24 dollars worth of food. I hope I dont die from eating rotten clam. I also seen some unusually small strped bass. I never seen anyone selling strpers so small I never knew that to be legal. Also be carefull if the food looks fresh why was the guy wetting it down with a hose while I was there

Do not ever go to this place!!

1st incident - A few weeks ago, I called in the morning approx 10am and asked how much were the lobsters per pound. They told me over the phone it was $6.99 per lb. When I arrived approx 12-1pm later that afternoon, they told me that the price per lb for lobster was $7.99. I informed them that I just called this morning and you told me it was $6.99 per lb and the woman replied "That was this morning's price and now the price is $7.99 lb." I said how could the price of the lobster change in a matter of a few hours and she just replied, do I want it or not. So, I purchased it and left it at that, not thinking this could happen again.

2nd incident - Happened today, I went to purchase 4 lobsters @ $7.99 per lb. I didn't see them weighing it but the lobsters came out to $49. I came home and calculated that there was no way the 4 lobsters could be over 6lbs total which would justify the price of $49. I called and spoke with the woman and told her that I think she charged me wrong and she said no she didn't, that 4 lobsters would total to whatever they charged me. I weighed it myself on my home scale and it weighed 4.6 lbs. I called her back and said no this is not right and she insisted that she did not charge me wrong. I went back with the 4 lobsters and she weighed it and said see, it's $49. And I told her no, calculate it correctly and she put it back on the scale and entered $7.99 per lb which came out to $36.83. The weight of the 4 lobster was a total of 4.61 lbs and she insisted that I did something to the lobsters for them to weigh differently now. Not even an apology or anything, she went under the cash register (not even opening the cash register, she had this money under the cash register) and gave me $10 and just left and went in the back. I assure you there was no weight loss in the lobsters from the time I purchased it till the time I got home and brought it back to the store.

The price of their seafood is less expensive at times, but it is definitely NOT worth dealing with people who are dishonest. I also reported them to the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs today as well.

I used to love the place before this guy bought it.

Now its dirty, food is stale, clams are dead, etc., etc.

And its overpriced.

Last time there I bought 4lbs of soft clams for steamers. 2dz were dead. I called and he told me that he would take care of me next.

Next time came, he doesn't remember anything.

Never again for me.

I'm a retired charter boat captain and I know my seafood. This guy does not.

You can do much better at most supermarkets for a lot less.

This place used to be good, but it was bought a few years ago and now I won't go back. The last time I went there were flies everywhere and it just seemed unclean. Large selection of fresh fish, but terribly overpriced.
