About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Since 1952 Mildred's has been the restaurant that people have traveled to. Located on the Ocean Drive between Ocean City and Sea Isle City in Strathmere, Mildred's was founded by legendary restauranteurs Charles and Mildred Conascenta, whose simple methods to success was serving the finest quality dishes. Chef Andy Raffa worked along side the Conascenta's for over thirty years, now, he and his wife Sallee have been the driving force for the past twenty years behind this shore tradition. Only the freshest and finest ingredients are used in all of Mildred's dishes. Seafood, beef and Italian specialties are all prepared with that Mildred's touch. All pasta and desserts are still homemade. Unlike restaurants that are only famous for certain dishes, Mildred's patrons all seem to have their own favorites...Maybe that's enough said!

Mildred's is located just steps from the beach, a perfect place to walk after a splendid dinner.

We are sorry to have had our last meal at Mildred's they are closing on the 15th and retiring. Why are there not more restaurant run as well as this was. They should go into the consulting business! I know a few places that could benefit from there experience!

Exceptional service...Gina & David were terrific.
Suggestion to Open Table; reduce the required number of characters. Survey way too involved!

Great dinner. I had the veal francaise, green beans, mashed potatoes, salad, tiramisu and coffee. My dining partner had salad, veal parm, homemade spaghetti, coffee and tiramisu. It was a delicious dinner. The service was great. A very reasonable check. The only problem is we have to wait until next year to return. This is the last week they are open in 2019. We will definitely return in 2020.

A nice meal was had by all. I really enjoyed the crab imperial. And three of us enjoyed the seem crab imperial. The only place that was better was the Coach Room but it burnt down.

The food was good. I had the veal cutlet with homemade pasta and it was delicious. However, we felt rushed. We hadn’t finished the salad before the meal came.
