This was one of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had! We made reservations for 7:00 for 6 adults and three children. When we got to the restaurant, they had lost our reservation. However, they told us that since it was a slow night and we arrived early, they would still be able to seat us. (Notice I said... More

At the suggestion of the Crusader, my husband and I went to the Wharf for dinner. It was our first visit. We were so impressed with the food & the service! The view of the sunset was beautiful.Our server, Wendy, was both knowledgeable & fun! Both our entrees were tasty & well-presented. We will definitely return to this fabulous restaurant!

Tried something new, and we weren't disappointed. It was a little pricy, but not overtly so. The food was all Awesome, and the service excellent, and friendly too. If you have to have, cause you just don't eat seafood, they offer turf too. All in all, a good experience.

The restaurant is on the noisier side as they have live music outside, but you could still have a coversation pretty easily. The seafood combo was excellent and portions were big, we took some home. Some of the tables are right next to the water and that was nice. Service was also very good.

We eat at The Wharf every time we visit Wildwood, the atmosphere is great and the food is amazing. We love sitting at the outside bar having cocktails before dinner and then dining inside the nice AC for delicious seafood.

This is one of our happy places in Wildwood! Boat up or drive up to enjoy cocktails and appetizers on the outside deck while watching boats and jetskis putter by. Perfect!
