About Us

The Octopus's Garden is a fish house proudly serving the Jersey Shore fresh local and exotic seafood and classic fare inspired by the land and sea. We are a restaurant that offers a casual, yet elegant dining experience. Although we carry a full selection of award-winning wine from Sharrott Winery, we invite you to bring your favorite bottle of wine or beer without being charged a corking fee.


We will now be serving lunch on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 am to 2 pm and dinner Wednesday through Monday evenings beginning at 4 pm. We are available for private parties and events 7 days a week. Please call for more information.


For us to best meet your preferred time and seating arrangements, please make your reservations by calling (609) 597-8828.
