Schellenger’s is a landmark Wildwood seafood restaurant that is easy to find with its rooftop comical lobster trying to escape a boiling pot of water.
This is a restaurant with character. The nautical theme, though a little tacky, is very Wildwood Jersey Shore and is present throughout the interior of restaurant with murals on the walls and wooden carvings of sea life hanging throughout the dining room. To complete the nautical theme, there is an aquarium near the entrance.
Diners feel like they are dining right on a pier which is fully equipped with pilings and working buoy lights.
It's especially family and kid friendly.
Schellenger’s is family owned and operated, having been passed down to succeeding generations. The kitchen is run Chef Glenn, who has been at Schellenger's for over 20 years.
The restaurant offers one of the largest menus in Wildwood with a huge selection of seafood dishes with ample portions at a reasonable price. While the seafood is fresh, this is not a gourmet restaurant, preparation is basic Jersey Shore style. Fresh lobster is their specialty.
Service is friendly and attentive.
Expect a long wait at Schellenger’s during the peak summer months.
Free parking is available across the street. Schellenger’s is open every day at 3 pm.
