Mud City Crab House

Reviewed By JerseyOrganic - Tabernacle, New Jersey

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday in November. They were very busy and all the food looked appetizing including the market part with fresh seafood.
We had oysters from the local Mullica river and fried pickles, then the crab cake and fries. The oysters were great, my husband loved them. Fried pickles were good. The crab cake was all meat which is a good thing but I prefer more flavor.
We want to come back in summer for fresh crabs and more seafood. Thank you

Manhattan Bagel

Reviewed By Jack K - Lebanon, Pennsylvania

I'm from Brooklyn, NY originally, and had the cocky attitude that there were no bagels outside of my home that were worth eating.
Okay, I was wrong.
Not only are the bagels very good, with PLENTY of choice (even thin ones), but the sandwiches made are quite good also. The service is excellent; your order moves quickly, even if it's crowded, and there are lots of choices for food as well as drinks, cold or hot.
If you're in the area, or even just live here, try this place out if you haven't so far. I think you'll find yourself going back again.

Went for brunch . Place was very busy, and as always, noisy. Had the shrimp and grits which were average. Four shrimp over a grit cake; nothing fabulous. Bloody Mary was good. Keep waiting to get a meal I love but it has not happened. Better places in town; I don't get why it's always so busy. Bring ear plugs!!

Bagels and Beyond

Reviewed By mrt031079 - Manahawkin, New Jersey

All of the Bagels and Beyond have a fantastic selection of bagels, spreads, sandwiches and baked goods! Their lunch selections are great as well and they usually have daily specials. These bagel shops can get busy and bagels do sell out, so be sure to get their early.

Element Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By Dgem - New Jersey

Element's happy hour is wonderful!
Drink specials, cheap appetizers (NOT skimpy serving sizes either).
Apps to try: boneless wings, mussels, fried shrimp, and bruschetta. I tried the crab & cheese wontons and didn't care for them - too much cheese, not enough crab.
The bar was crowded as were all the tables, but service was on point.
Can't say enough about the Crab Bisque - it is not to be missed!

Pietro's Pizzeria

Reviewed By NancyB702013 - Williamsburg, Virginia

I order pizza from here. However, I ate in the sit down side and ordered off the menu this time. There were 3 of us for dinner and we all ordered something different. Mine was the very best!!! Never ordered this anywhere before. Plus we had the salad that goes with dinner. Great! Fresh! Order veal pizzioli(?) Fabulous.
