Beautiful Venue. Wonderful experience all around for our special occasion.

We were among the birds and flowers in the beautiful garden. We enjoyed a delicious meal and received top notch attention from the staff.

It's so nice here, we were on the back patio and it was really amazing, like a tiny bird sanctuary and garden. It's not an everyday kind of place, come here when you are celebrating and you will not be disappointed. Food is excellent and the ambience is perfect.

The Gables Inn offers a very nice atmosphere (ambiance) to dine in, Their front porch is partially secluded however offers a nice street view. I was seated on the back veranda, also very nice. They offer a lot of interesting choices for appetizers, main entrees, daily specials and desserts. The food is very good - I have only eaten here... More

This place has it all...ambience, fabulous good and great owners/staff. Save your money at other mediocre LBI restaurants and come here-every time! Worth every penny.

We went to the Gables Restaurant couple of time. Once indoor, very elegant; a second time in the garden, very English Garden feel, we even have birds visiting the bird house/feeder close to our table.

Probably the most elegant dining experience on LBI. Beautiful, comfortable venue. Excellent service. Excellent food. BYOB although they do serve wines from a NJ winery. Formal white table cloth dining. Mostly all ala carte. Pretty good menu choices. Service is very good but not perfect - still early in the season and people were training but will probably be flawless... More

It is wonderful to have a fine dining restaurant like The Gables in Beach Haven. It has a varied, upscale gourmet menu. We usually save it for special occasions, or special guests as it is on the more expensive end. But it is not overpriced as the ambiance,service, quality and presentation of meals is excellent.

A wonderful restaurant with gracious service. We love it and will return again and again. It is on the other end of the island from our home and worth the trip.

So elegant! you feel that you have gone back in time, the food is always good. Great place to go on Fridays nights pre-season. They have wines you can buy, but also BYOB.
