Douglass Fudge

Douglass is a Wildwood Staple! Its the MOST traveled to candy establishment in Wildwood NJ. I would like to write my Review for it Please. Thank you!!

Reviewed By Katrina B - New Windsor, New York

Always stop down at Douglass Fudge every time down in Wildwood. I am babying my chocolate covered pretzels until they can ship them to me in the cooler months! Nothing is better than enjoying a chocolate treat on the boardwalk. Prices can be a little high, but it's worth the taste!

The Jellyfish Cafe'

Reviewed By Josephine S - New York City, New York

Clean atmosphere. Basic family friendly cozy diner like environment. 20 minute wait. Great for kids! Friendly staff. The gentleman I believe owns the establishment encouraged all to sing happy birthday to Janine, another customer.

LOVED the food! Not a fan of Log Cabin syrup. Would of preferred maple for the kids.

$42 breakfast for 2 kids / 2 adults. Tip not included.

FYI They use peanut oil to fry.

I've been coming to the Wildwoods for 16 years, staying just blocks away and never knew it was there. Glad we finally found it.

Apple fritters cinnamon buns, donuts ask fresh baked. The crumb cake was great and just melted in your mouth.

Russo's Market

Reviewed By AndiamoAMagna - Clinton, New Jersey

Cheesesteak is outstanding! Bread has perfect texture, perfect blend of cheese and steak, and steak is lean and tasty. Half sandwich is enough for two, whole is humongous. Location is cash only. They offer other quality sandwiches and other grocery items.

Kohr Brothers Frozen Custard

There are several of these Kohr Brothers Frozen Custard places along the boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey. You have listings for Kohr's in Ocean City, but you currently list none in Wildwood. THey're great and I'd love to give them a positive review.

Reviewed By PhillyMissy - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

My preference is soft serve, but this place is a rip off. The smallest come with jimmies is over $5.00. Practically every other place on the boardwalk will cost you around $3.00 for much more ice cream, and generally much higher quality.

Love this cute little Do Wop shop. We have made this a yearly stop when we are in town.
Breakfast is always amazing from omelettes to stuffed French toast to cheese steak and egg sandwiches. Prices are more then reasonable too for the large amount of food you get and kids breakfast are only $3.50.

Restaurant featuring Home Made Ice Cream. Serving Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks. Lively family oriented atmosphere with Mini Golf and Game Room with Prize Center.

Reviewed By Corrine P - Putnam Valley, New York

Came here for the homemade Ice Cream, It was worth the trip. Staff was very friendly & the Ice Cream menu is BIG. The sundae's were delicious only complaint was I had the Brownie Sundae the Brownie's were stale. The place was busy and was every night went but you must go, killed time at the arcade & Mini golf. So it's worth the destination
