Called for take out on a Saturday night. The penne pasta with shrimp and scallops in vodka sauce came swimming in a watery, tasteless, oily broth. I had to pick the few shrimp and scallops out and throw the rest away. Not worth the price. Very disappointed. It has always been good in the past.

My family and I have been going to shore fresh for years now and just love it! The food is so fresh and yummy, and the atmosphere is very casual. We usually eat there but have ordered take out a few times with no problems. My husbands favorite is the lobster bisque and mine, the crab cakes!

The Shore Fresh Sea Food Market, 703 - 703 Bridge Avenue, Point Pleasant, New Jersey
August 16, 2008, I stumbled across this place by accident on a busy summer night when all the other good places in town had long waits. This place is in itself a busy local sea food market by day and also happens to serve great take out and eat-in fare. I was there on a Saturday night in August, during the busy season of this popular bustling Jersey shore beach town. There is a small kitchen out back of the fish market which serves up the best the ocean has to offer at bargain prices. One would think you were dropped off at someones front porch for dinner.They have the usual seafood menu, with all the lobster bisque, the clam chowder, both ways, and all the other shell fish, regular fish. cooked to your order. Everything is made fresh and its all homemade.
I immediately spotted the sign LOBSTER DINNER $19.95, thats for me. This all took place about 7:45pm.
When I entered the market I was greeted by the waitress, who looked like she had just stepped right out of that old Bounty paper towel commercial, the one of Rosies Diner,
THERE IS A 1 HOUR WAIT AND WE CLOSE AT 9:00 !
I shrugged my shoulders, where was I going at this stage of night? Besides, no one was going to talk me out of that lobster, not even this feisty curmudgeon waitress with her strong Boston accident. She said "Ok sit down over here (little tables placed randomly around the front porch of her market) , I sat down but I told her there is only one thing, I insisted upon, "I would like a cup of the New England ($2.99)
About ten minutes later she arrived with my chowder, lots of clams and cream, very yummy, in a plastic take out container just like the kind soup comes in at the grocery store. On the table there was a container of some sort, stuffed with napkins and a array of plastic silverware.
She whispered with her thick Boston accent, I snuck by the cook and placed an order in for your lobster . . WOW my stubbornness paid off ! I am really going to get one!
While I waited, a very well dressed older couple arrived in a shiny black Cadillac, we want an order to take out . "Rosie blurted right back at them OK, BUT ITS AN HOUR WAIT! they looked at each other, perplexed, without saying a word, car keys in hand, they scooted off..
Rosie " explained to those of us who remained on her porch, and who had been brave enough to ignore her stated wait time warnings, "the front wasnt busy tonight, but there is only a small kitchen back there and someone has just phoned in an ordered for 16 lobster take away dinners, then they called back and ordered two more ! she explained, thats well over a $400.00 order, and WE CLOSE AT 9 OCLOCK!, Just incase any of us forgot. . .lol
After about 20 minutes (total wait time), she arrived with my lobster dinner. IIt was served in one of those deep aluminum pans, the kind one would buy at the grocery store to roast a chicken in a pinch.. lol . .
Finally, there I was stareing at my 1 1/2 Maine guy he stared back at me (he is not a soft shell local, this fellow is the real thing, explained Rosie) complete with a tub of home made Cole slaw, and my Jersey Shore French fries (twice cooked and not at all greasy) , made with real potatoes but never frozen.
There in a small plastic cup lies the melted butter. I ordered a bottle of Stewart's diet root beer and a few minutes later, when asked how I was doing, I said, I am a happy camper.
The lobster dinner comes with a choice of rice, plain spaghetti (without sauce), or French fries. The bill went like this, the lobster dinner $19.95, the root beer two bucks, and the chowder $2.99, plus 7% tax, with tip, $32.00.
The entertainment ("Rosie") was of course was free. Just watching her scare and chase tourists off her front porch was worth it alone.
My only suggestion, try to get there early so maybe Rosie can sneak in a few lobster orders for you. By the way, the lobster was steamed, just the way I like it. and totally scrumptious, worth every penny and worth the wait.
This place is open all year and I was told that September and October are the best times to go because its not crowded, yet pleasant weather for outdoor dining.
If you are looking for good food at a great value this is the place. if you are looking for atmosphere, forget it, lol there is none. of that.
What I ate: Lobster Dinner
The lobster was steamed with a bit of paprika, excellent for the price. I was expecting a standard 1 1/4 pound-er, this is 1 1/2 pounds. That 1/4 pound does make a difference. I had the New England clam chowder it was packed with clams, and very creamy. I saw diners eating aluminum trays full of steamers, they looked very popular. They do have a kid friendly menu, chicken fingers and burgers etc.
I normally do not eat restaurant type French fries, but I was impressed with the fries that came with the dinner, skins still on at the edges and they were not greasy, but 100% made from scratch and home made.
