We have been going to OC for 20 years. There are LOTS of restaurants. Our favorites are Captain's Galley II in West OC for the best crabcakes. Crabcake Factory up towards the Deleware border has some equally as good, atmosphere not too much. Good news is you can take some home packed in dry ice and they will last forever in your freezer. Harrison's at the end of the boardwalk always has some great fresh fish. Those are our three favorites. After that we tend to try different places each year, no others have made it on our must go to list. JRs does make the rotation once in a while for good ribs!
Looking for some other recommendations to fill out our week this August.
Price not a real concern, but don't want to go to upscale.
