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.

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
