It looks like the kind of place you'd stumble on in Maine, but the Boondocks Fishery is in Red Bank, New Jersey on the Navesink River.

Kelly Ryan opens Boondocks on May 15 and closes it on September 15. And in that time they serve up a lot of lobster, lobster rolls, fish sandwiches, shrimp tacos and spicy gumbo-- made fresh everyday.

Boondocks Fishery was damaged in Superstorm Sandy, and local residents in the community helped rebuild.
