Some places are so simple and only serve a few dishes because they serve them all to perfection. Caldwell Seafood is that type of place. For over 60 years they don’t only serve some of the freshest seafood I’ve ever had aside from the Jersey Shore, but they also sell it. It’s not cheap, but it is the best and the freshest. I am thinking they go down to Fulton Street in Newark every morning to get the freshest fish off the boat.
The dining area is small, but not cramped. In the front there are about 12 tables. In the back is the retail market, some prepared foods and of course the kitchen.
Unlike most hole in the wall type places, this one is not cheap. It is not expensive, but it is not inexpensive either. You can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $25 for most entrees.
