Recently dined at the gables with a large group of 13 adults. We have a home down LBI and dine here quite regularly. Some in our group have dined here before; about half had not. Well, needless to say it was another outstanding dining experience for everyone!!!! We sat out back in the garden and the atmosphere was perfect...what a... More

My husband and I have three little kids, so we don't get out much. When we do go out we try to make an event out of it and go somewhere special. I have been hearing about The Gables for two decades and I finally went there this week with my husband. We sat outside in the back and it... More

When visiting Beach Haven, we always try to go to The Gables. Unfortunately, we had a disappointing experience last night. I ordered PEI mussles, they were inedible. We had them sent back to the kitchen. For the entree I had the Halibut. It was very dry and tasteless. The side was greens, very salty. Three in our party ordered the... More

Be prepared to spend a small fortune at this beautiful, charming, but way over-priced restaurant. I had dinner here with my daughter, and there were exactly 2 rolls in the bread basket. She ordered the gnocchi, which was smothered in bolognese sauce, but the gnocchi itself was not very filling, it was light, unlike most gnocchi I have had before.... More

Excellent restaurant for Brunch or Dinner. Always fresh and service is excellent. Atmosphere is phenomenal. Recently went with family for brunch, the food was much better than the typical breakfast places (chicken or the egg or uncle will's). Price is same (maybe a couple bucks more, but at least it's not cash only). We had: Red Snapper with Asparagus and... More

Many diners don't realize that there's a beautiful garden behind the Gables. We ate under the new Pergola, next to a usical fountain. The summer night enhanced our delicious dinners. A magical exeperience.

The front porch is very charming (where we sat) , there was a great piano player whose music drifted out to the front and to the tables inside,... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining here this week. The venue is a restored Victorian and most charming. And - it's a BYOB that also offers local wine! We chose to dine outside on the lovely front porch adorned with beautiful hanging baskets and surrounded by lovely flowers. We chose the Chef's 7 course menu and were... More

I had Uova Da Ravioli for the first time I must say it was incredible! Also had the tastiest and LARGEST mussels in my life,,,as an Italian/American that's a very big deal, as I grew up eating mussels in Mom's marinara sauce.

The Gables at Long Beach Island is by far the most luxurious B&B at the shore! The inn, as well as the restaurant and chef Richard Diemer, are truly 5-Star. There is nothing else like it at LBI - it stands out as the best.
