Restaurant Review

Kleins Fish market in Belmar is a popular waterfront restaurant that serves up fresh seafood with a view of the Shark River inlet

This is a Jersey shore spot where diners can enjoy sitting back and relaxing  while watching the fishing trawlers pass by.

The reason to come to this place is to enjoy fresh seafood with a great view. Don't expect gourmet food. The food preparation is simple, with little creativity, and with sides and bread servings of lesser quality.

In the warmer months you can eat outdoors on the deck under large colorful umbrellas with paper plates and plastic silverware. If you prefer, there is a more formal air conditioned indoor dining, with a raw bar, tablecloths, and china.

In the peak summer months, be prepared for long lines.

They also have have fresh seafood market for retail purchases or takeout.

Kleins Fish Market Cafe is child friendly, with an an excellent children's menu.

They are open for lunch and dinner seven days/week and Sunday's for brunch.
