Fried scallops were small, oily, and rubbery. Chicken Parmesan was dry, and served in a pool of water. Service was slow, despite the small number of patrons. Maybe just a bad day, but I cannot recommend Alfie’s.

The salad and bread were very good. Our entrees were also good. The restaurant however was so dark you could barely see. The restaurant itself hasn't been updated in decades.

We were 6 in our party and the overall dining experience was terrific. Our waiter Stephen was outstanding. He was very efficient and paced our food orders from appetizers thru dinner in a timely fashion. The food was absolutely delicious. You can’t go wrong dining at Alfe’s. One of Wildwood’s Best.

Need to have reservation system updated. We made a 3:30 reservation for a Sunday and got there a few minutes early and all doors were locked. We waited a few minutes trying to decide what to do and while doing so a family of 4 showed up who had a 3:15 reservation. While discussing what to do the bartender opened the door and said they didn’t open until 4. Because of the weather he let us in to get warm since it was a cold/rainy afternoon. Within minutes we were seated even though they weren’t quite ready for us. We shouldn’t have been able to make a reservation for a time that they weren’t open. Despite all of this service and food were excellent.

Worth the drive from Somers Point! Four of us had dinner - all with excellent food. Service was good, and fairly attentive; although seating was rather clustered when there was room to spread the table sitting out a bit.
Will definitely return.

Alfie's serves good southern italian food at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, the food is indistinguishable from the myriad of other similarly priced italian restaurants in the Wildwoods. Their "Jackey sauce" is a differentiator on their seafood dishes; however, not enough of a differentiator to make me want to return frequently.

The crowd is generally older (50s and 60s). There is ample dress parking . And, it's connected to a bowling alley if you're so inclined. Alfie's is a solid alternative for taking out the whole family out for a fairly priced Italian dinner. Make sure you leave room for a cannoli or tatufo for dessert.

The food and service were great. The portions of food were appropriately sized with the prices. I got two drinks which were okay-- nothing special. We sat in the dining area which was more quiet. There were two bar areas that seemed pretty popular. My only complaint is that was a very strong paint smell in the room. It was so strong that we almost left. We were glad we ended up staying because we all enjoyed our meals.

Shore. Can't go wrong at this long running wildwood icon Italian. Long hots stuffed with cheese and Italian ham are a winner. Clams and linguini also very good. Others enjoyed their meal as well. Extensive menu which will please every palate out there. Prices are reasonable including the wines.

Have been going here for 20+ years. We specifically order either the Veal Patricia or the Veal Jackie. These are two signature dishes. The veal is always very tender and the seafood topping is delicious. Both dishes have a seafood topping containing shrimp and scallops cooked to perfection. The Patricia sauce has tarragon (my favorite) and mushrooms. The Jackie (my wife's favorite) has tomatoes (diced), mushrooms and basil. We don't care for the tomato (marinara?) sauce here, it is too acidic for our taste. The wines by the glass are quite good. The prices are under $25 for the veal and less for other dishes. they also offer several fresh fish dishes every day. We are told they are very good.

Our service was wonderful! Food fantastic. I had Veal Scallopini and my husband mixed scallops, clams, shrimp, calamari over linguine. Portions were large with a delicious homestyle salad. For groups of four and under, we were seated in a very romantic, quite room, decorated in grape vines and a
real Italy feel, white table linens, candles, dim lights. An adjacent room was much larger hosting tables of six to 20. This room was noisier, with a filled capacity of happy diners. There was also live music which could be heard in our room. The menu offers many seafood dishes. The night we visited you could have six different fish dishes cook to your liking. Recommended by locals, on site parking, a must visit for that Italien Seafood Lover!
