About

Klein's Fish Market and Waterside Cafe is a bar, grill and sushi bar. The menu at Klein's is diverse, having everything from a perfectly grilled steak to a hearty pasta dish or a freshly prepared sushi roll. If diners are hungry, there is no better way to fill up than the combo platter, a massive plate of flounder shrimp and scallops, which can be prepared broiled, fried, grilled, blackened or Cajun style.

Klein's has three dining areas, but the most popular is The Waterside Cafe. This outdoor seating area sits on a busy dock, and diners can watch the boats come in or enjoy a beautiful sunset over the water. Klein's also has a specially designed catering menu and is an ideal place to host a special event.

We were in town for only seven days. Went to Klein's the first evening and returned three more times. Menu variety allowed easy sollections. Fish fresh.

Our overworked server was excellent. Apparently much of the summer staff had just left for school, and the restaurant did not plan adequate replacements. The food was good, lobster/clam bake. The only negative was that they included scallops in the package that were completely overcooked. The lobster, clams and other seafood were well cooked and very tasty. Would definitely return.

Whatever the occasion this is a great restaurant to visit. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious! The view is breathe taking, great sunsets! Just in case you can't find a sitter, not to worry the kids will enjoy the menu and love watching the boats go by. Enjoy!

The food here is amazing! I usually go every summer with my husband and in-laws. I always get the king crab legs because they are the best I have ever had anywhere. The other night I tried the crab artichoke bisque. Wow! The waterside view is so beautiful also. Overall a great place.

Although our waiter was outstanding, the food was mediocre, the table was off balance and the live music was far too loud. The music was turned down upon request, but we found it to be inappropriate during the dinner hour.

The food is average at best but we did have a great server. The view is also not very good. Basically you stare at a bridge and watch a NJ transit train roll through every now and then. Not worth the money.

This is not the place to go for a very special sort of meal. It's more "down home" style cuisine, with a lot of the fish being served fried or just sort of the way good ole boys like it. The food is good but not sophisticated but you're sitting there on the water and the service is nice and it stays open late so who can complain. It's really very relaxing.

We had blackened swordfish which was outstanding and whole, fried Thai sea bass which was very good but could have had a little more flavor. Nice wines at happy hour prices made us very happy.
