Spike's Fish Market is both a restaurant and a sea food market, popular with locals who enjoy fresh seafood without "breaking the bank."
This small "shack sized" restaurant offers locally caught, fresh seafood without gourmet trimmings
The menu is basic with a variety of traditional seafood dishes offered either raw, broiled, or battered.
Don't expect creative or artistically prepared dishes here. It's good, fresh seafood, reasonably priced. Nothing fancy, upscale, or eclectic.
The restaurant has sit down table service with a very friendly wait staff. There are around 20 picnic bench style tables in a seat yourself, very casual setting.
What you can expect though are very long lines in the summer --- locals come during the off season.
It's family and kid friendly.
Spike's Fish Market is open year round, seven days/week.

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.
