So it's a good thing that Yelp just put out their new list of the highest-rated, Best Seafood Restaurants in Central Jersey. Because if there's one thing anyone knows about seafood restaurants, you definitely want to go with recommendations. There's nothing worse than bland, poorly cooked, non-fresh seafood. I'm sure you can name a restaurant or two where you've had a lesser-than-great dining experience.
