I was awestruck when I entered the room called Victoria and Albert! I have traveled the world, but, cannot remember being so impressed on entering an accommodation! The French influence shone through with the white armoire and matching chaise lounge draped with the softest white throw. The working gas fireplace and small French writing desk added to the ambiance; but,... More

We threw a surprise birthday dinner for my mom this past weekend & everything was perfect! Sandy was very helpful in picking out a great menu and making sure every detail was thought out. The setting was beautiful - flowers everywhere, live piano playing. Food was excellent and so was the service! It was a wonderful night! Highly recommend!

Had a great celebration at the gables. Never disappointed in the ambience and food. Pricey. But good portions and great flavor . Loved the watermelon gazpacho The service was so so for the price there were no extras. No coffee or tea offered

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Gables and what an amazing experience this was. From being helped by Sandy every minute of planning to being warmly greeted by the owner, the service is outstanding. The venue itself for a wedding is romantic, intimate and absolutely stunning. The guests were beyond thrilled with the wonderful dinner and wedding... More

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.
