Diner Reviews
  • "This was recommended by a friend to try dinner here we arrived and were welcomed immediately Appetizers were great. Bam bam shrimp were delish our wives split 2 of the " small portion" and just barely finished them. I had the fried shrimp platter that was excellent no room for dessert though. Would highly recommend but make sure you get reservations"

  • "Seafood is very fresh and good but small portions. Sushi is great! We also felt mixed drinks were very over priced for what we got. Vodka and seltzer almost $13. We have heard brunch at Kleins is a good deal. We will try again."

  • "We went for valentines Day. I did not like the patio room. Chilly and drafty for winter. Probably nice in summer. With a reservation I would have liked to be in the main dining room. Food didn't start off great. Salad was tasteless. Too many nuts vs. salad greens. We ordered clams casino. They were small, dry and not tasty. At this point my husband have it a 2. Dinner improved. I had pesto scallops with cauliflower risotto . Delicious.y husband had Chilean sea bass. He said it was very good. Wanted to have dessert but nothing appealed to me. I was looking for something chocolate . Our waitress Dina was nice and attentive. I would try Kleins again"

  • "We had brunch at Kleins for New Years. It was wonderful. Lots of great food. Kleins is great for fresh fish. The outdoor deck is nice. We eat there a lot and love it."

  • "A special occasion met with special service and food. From the moment you arrive you are greeted with smiling faces. Escorted to a dining area that was beautifully decorated to the season festivities; it was New Year's Eve and Christmas lights shined and New Year's hats, favors and noise makers at every table. We felt special. The service was outstanding. Our server, Patty, was the best ! Great food. We started with wonderful seafood soup, followed by the most amazing scallops surrounding a mash potato center with a light red sauce, delicate and extremely tasteful. The main entrée was the traditional "surf and turf". The lobster tail was cooked to perfection and the generous portion NY Strip Steak would rival many Manhattan Steak Houses."

  • "Klein's is a Jersey Shore institution, always wonderful outdoor seaside dining in the summer, but great for fresh fish, quieter and still has a nice water view from indoor dining room in winter- and you can always get a seat in winter !"

  • "Entree of Over liked fish, microwaved baked potatoes were enough to offset the positives if a good Caesar salad an fresh cold little neck clams. It was an off season night and we were one of only 3 couples in the restaurant so service and food should have been better"

  • "YUM! The steamers are always wonderful here. It's a modest but pleasant wine list and until winter really arrives, it's great to sit outside and see the water, the boats and catch a sunset."

  • "I am a bit torn giving this review. I have enjoyed many Happy Hours at Kleins. However, my first sit-down dining experience left a return visit in much doubt. There are better seafood restaurants around and there are worse. Klein simply did not distinguish itself on this evening. Biggest gripe....too long waiting for our first drink (bottle of wine). Second gripe .... roasted clams. They were definitely not worth the price."

  • "The Sushi was excellent... as good or better than many Japanese Sushi Restaurants... .we really enjoyed our dinner"
