Between the bay marshes and Route 72 lies one of the most glorious dining experiences that you will ever have. Mud City brings you back to when dining at the beach meant nothing more than newspaper on the table, a bucket of crabs and a beer. Don’t let the name frighten you. According to the owners, “mud city” is what locals called the neighboring old bayside community, notorious for high tides that left the streets covered with mud, surrounding the restaurant.

Mud City boasts a friendly, casual atmosphere along with a menu featuring some of the freshest seafood New Jersey has to offer. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone, land lovers included. Baked Garlic Clams are a must for an appetizer. Can’t decide between crab cakes or flounder fillets? Try the Seafood Combination (broiled or fried) and have both along with a generous helping of scallops and shrimp. And what sort of a crab house would Mud City be without a variety of crustaceans to choose from? Enjoy your crabs Maryland Style or Garlic Style or pair a hand-picked lobster with your choice of sides. The options are endless!

Come hungry and come early. Mud City draws a crowd from far and away so bring a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunset while waiting for your table during the dinner rush.

    Mud City is the best in the area. Food excellent, wait staff wonderful and fun to be there. Have been eating there during season every Friday night for approximately 10 years and always can’t wait to come back. It is so great to see the same people return, the same wait staff and of course Melanie and Erik. Diane Zilz

    We have been going to Mud City for at least 10 years now. You cannot beat the price, the service or the great food you can get there. We are always sorry when they close for the season.

    Ridiculous wait every night. Try Exit 63 Seafood just down the road a bit. Bigger portions…same prices…just as good if not better!
