Although the atmosphere is really nice and the service was friendly, the food came out luke-warm and really wasn't that great! Actually, it was average. . . we were expecting to be blown away. Have had much better meals for a lot less $$!

Thanks to the excellent food, service and elegant surroundings, our celebration of our daughter's birthday reached perfection last Saturday. We still talk about the outstanding cake topping off the perfectly rendered entrees. If you have not been to this exquisite B&B you are missing LBI's greatest treasure. It is downtown Beach Haven without being downtown, a Victorian shore jewel that... More

The rooms are small and dimly lit but quaint all the same and contain a romantic flair. There are old-fashioned hardwood floors and also a library book nook down the hall compleat with an assortment of LP's from local musicians, including, of course, New Jersey's native son Bruce Springsteen! Dinner, especially the s'more dessert, was exceptional, but even better yet... More

A finely tuned B&B experience ! The owners are totally on top of their game! The staff is incredible and the food is unbelievable! Whether you stay or just go for dinner you will not be disappointed! Close to the beach and most definitely the best of the island!!

Special occasion at the beach. Wonderful setting in an old Victorian house. Food experience is farm to table freshness and seasoned to perfection. Service was very attentive. This will be a memorable meal for your beach vacation without a doubt. BYOB even though they do have an extensive wine list and smart casual dress is acceptable.

The Gables on Long Beach Island, NJ is by far the most luxurious, beautiful B&B at the Jersey shore! The inn, as well as restaurant and chef Richard Diemer (he's rated a 27 by Zagat) are truly 5-Star.

I recently had the pleasure of spending an incredibly romantic stay at The Gables Inn and Restaurant in Beach Haven on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. Although I'm a seasoned beachgoer, and fully appreciate the simplicity that a Jersey Shore get-away can hold, I've also had the pleasure of traveling extensively and hold in high regard fine accommodations, sumptuous...

This was the second time I've been to The Gables for dinner. We had a party of 10 that "could only be seated at 6:30 due to our size." We arrived and not one table was full in the restaurant... Stayed this way until after 8 pm. So we sit down and three people at our table are sitting with... More

I have never stayed at The Gables but I had heard wonderful things about their restaurant. A friend of mine would take her mother there for tea and was just delighted with everything. We decided to go on a recent Saturday night and while the restaurant itself is lovely...lively porch seating, antiqued filled room w/a nice piano player in the... More

The Gables is a wonderful bed and breakfast and restaurant. Walking up the front entrance, past all the beautiful flowers and landscaping is breathtaking. Then, the minute you walk inside, it's like you've come home. The staff treats you like family and are extremely hospitable and friendly. Our room was decorated perfectly and everything was outstanding. Since we were only... More
