Excellent restaurant...great atmosphere, service and food. We had the tasting menu which was really good. Felt like a different world out on back patio...beautifully decorated. Our waitress was very good and explained the menu and options. Magical night!

The Gables has some of the best food on the island. Definitely the most fancy restaurant in Beach Haven, Gables serves excellent food! The food truly is delicious and they are very accommodating for vegetarians. The service is usually great and fairly fast for a restaurant that's as busy and classy as it is. Then, at the end of your... More

She helped us select a bottle of wine from their list of local wines, and described each entre we asked about. She and all of the... More

Last night my friends and I continued our annual summer tradition of dinner at The Gables. Every year we are still enchanted by the gorgeous flowers in the garden surrounding the porch and the magnificent baskets hanging on the porch. The tables look so elegant with simple white linens and sparkling glassware. Adding to the Victorian charm are the tiny... More
