We've been coming to Crab Cake Hotline for years now.....can't remember when we first started coming here. The crabcakes are outstanding! Vince, the owner is a perfectionist, and every time you have the crabcakes they are consistent, and just as excellent as the time before....More

Tiny, tiny place, but worth the wait. CASH ONLY! They have an ATM machine there in the restaurant if you don't have cash. Had to wait about 20 minutes for our food, but what we got was amazing. My husband does not eat seafood, so...More

I have known about this place for years but never tried it. That changed on Irish Weekend. A bit pricey but Crabcakes usually are. Awesome crab cakes, baked potato and slaw. They have a really good key lime pie too.

Went here to have a late lunch. Crab cakes were solid meat and huge. Worth every penny. Cole slaw is great and the baked potato was perfect. Also had the new England clam chowder which was filling. Thank you for a great lunch :)

If you go to the jersey shore, you would be foolish not to go here and try a platter! Aside from the crabcakes, you must try the cole slaw and sea salt baked potato.
