We normally have a houseful to cook for. This year everyone was going elsewhere. We decided to go out. We found the Gables was open and made our reservation. We arrived to a white lighted building and trees. Inside was warm and cozy and welcoming. In fact the owner greeted us personally. We had not dined here since the present... More

Beautiful, lovely, charming, etc. Food is different, classy and limited. Son't come here if you are picky with what you eat. I will go back for the ambiance of sitting on that porch surrounded by those lovely potted flowers.

I visited The Gables on a tennis weekend with my team and it was WONDERFUL! The food, service and ambiance were all incredible. The variety of the menu made it hard to choose because everything looked delicious! I can't wait to go back!

My wife and I had dinner here just after a nor'easter had passed through. Outdoor seating wasn't possible and there weren't many diners inside either. On the other hand, the restaurant is beautifully furnished and elegant. Tables were a bit close together but the jazz soundtrack muffled sounds. The food was first rate. I had a crab appetizer and scallops... More

Perfect romantic setting, inside and out, but I recommend the back yard patio or the front porch-magical in great weather! My husband and I were on a weekend getaway on the island and had dinner on a Friday evening this Sept. The service was fabulous, Sarah was a delight to have as a server. We brought along a bottle of... More

At the end of our week long stay in LBI (and how wonderful to see how quickly it has recovered from the ravages of Hurricane Sandy, with the island buzzing with families enjoying all that this great place has to offer) we went with friends to this very nice restaurant. Good, quiet atmosphere...families who were here with children had them... More

We had a lovely dinner here again. Staff is accommodating and pleasant. Food was delicious from the appetizers (try the boccocini or watermelon-crab gazpacho) to the entrees. Options that are yummy and tastefully prepared for vegetarians to pescatarians to meat eaters. Lovely service that was properly paced. Everything was properly seasoned and served at an appropriate pace. Perfect place for... More

My husband and enjoyed a delightful evening at this wonderful restaurant. The couple that owns the restaurant comes to each table to welcome you. This lovely Bed and Breakfast is located in Beach Haven just a block off the main road and a short walk to the beach. The food that was prepared was absolutely delicious. Ingredients were fresh and... More

This is a perfect spot for date night - make a reservation and request either the porch or backyard (my preference is back but both are beautiful). It's a BYO so don't forget to grab a bottle or two of wine before heading over. The food is definitely a bit fancy for "down the shore" but everything was excellent. I... More

Make a reservation....sit on the porch. We did so even during a rainy night and it was magical. It is an elegant room, with excellent service. The food is the best on the island. The preparations were evident. We had the scallops, which we decided was the best item on the menu. Also the halibut was perfectly cooked. My mom... More
