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

Good restaurant. We enjoyed our dinner here. We did not order any drinks because they only offer full bottles of wine (no beers or cocktails are available). I was surprised that some of the men wore blazers on an August evening, and everybody was very well dressed. Nice place. Prices are normal for such a good spot, decent value, no... More

My husband and I vacation every year at LBI and tried this restaurant for the 2nd year in a row. We both love good food and don't shy away from dropping some cash on a great meal, but I walked away feeling like I would've rather eaten at the nearby pub because I would've gotten what I expected. Here's the... More

We were going to see Spamalot at the Surflight Theatre and wanted to have a beautiful and relaxed dinner with our adult daughters and grandaughter from Key West.The evening was beautiful--we were on the porch enjoying the fresh air, and were served an exquisite dinner on a white tablecloth with fine china. The wait staff and hostess were gracious, knowledgeable... More

We make sure to dine at The Gables every time we visit LBI. The food is so lovingly prepared and only the freshest ingredients used, that it is always a special meal. We have eaten out on the front porch with it's hanging plants and beautiful breezes, inside next to the fireplace and in the back courtyard where you feel... More

Who knew "Fine Dining" existed at the NJ Shore! Hidden away, yet only 50 yards from Centre St. The food was wonderful, we shared the Thai mussels (very spicy), then had the Chicken entree and the Scallops - both perfectly cooked. Service was immaculate and the setting perfect - either on the front terrace or the rear garden. They serve... More
