Restaurant Review

Located in the parking lot behind the Ocean City Boardwalk, Spadaforas Restaurant is a small eatery known for their fresh, traditional seafood dishes, with the seafood shipped in daily from their nearby fish market.

This family owned and operated business is owned by the Spadafora Family and has become an Ocean City fixture sine 1981.

Many of the recipes used are the creation of their grand father, Schiavo, who worked in the kitchen at the famed South Philadelphia landmark Palumbo's Restaurant and Nightclub that was destroyed by fire in 1994.

In addition to their outstanding seafood selections, they offer a selection of steaks, burgers, & chicken, cooked on their open hearth grill

Save room for dessert, they offer excellent Key Lime and Mud pies made in the style of the Florida Keys.

They also have outside dining on the patio

The service is friendly and attentive.

Spadaforas Restaurant offers an early bird menu. Monday - Friday, from 3 pm - 5 pm.

They are family friendly with a children's menu.

Note: There is free limited on-site parking in their mini parking lot. Parking is available in the adjacent public parking lot.

Reservations accepted

Spadaforas Restaurant is open daily for Lunch and Dinner in season, beginning the 3rd week in May.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
