Jersey Shore Pizza

. The pizza was good and typical of Jersey Shore pizza eateries. We enjoyed it and would likely go again when visiting LBI.

What a lovely place for beach-area casual dining! We arrived at 8:30 pm on a Sunday, and despite the late hour, the servers were friendly and helpful. While the menu is casual (burgers, Mexican, wraps, etc), their New England clam chowder was award-winning! Dress is casual, and to make the evening better, it's a BYOB. California Grill is not to...

Below average pizza , heavy cheese, poor sauce. Quality suboptimal. Asked for thin crust and well done , neither achieved. Not recommended.

Went there for lunch today with my husband and toddler. We ate outside which had a nice casual atmosphere (which was great bc we just came from the beach). I ordered the southwest chicken wrap- very tasty but definitely could've used more chicken (I had a lot of guacamole/ranch/wrap bites). My toddler got a mushroom slice and from a NYer... More

As customers wait on lines that wrap around the block for a table at The Chicken or the Egg, The California Grill serves up great burgers, panini s, and other tasty food. The Manhattan clam chowder alone, is worth the trip.

We dined at this restaurant during the Labor Day weekend. We sat outside on the covered patio. It is located right on the boulevard so there is no real view but the music and the furniture helped with the beach feel. I sampled the white clam chowder and it was delicious! We also had the tacos which tasted very fresh... More

Grand Champion of New England Chowder (White Stuff). Best soup we have ever had. We keep coming back it every summer. The restaurant is open year round. It survived the super storm. We come here in the off season as well. The restaurant is not a big and fancy place. Just good food at a reasonable price and GREAT SOUP.... More

We've been here at least once per year for the past 3 years(while staying for a week in LBI). We've had many of their wraps and both kinds of chowder. Everything is very good but the NEC chowder is amazing!!!! (We haven't tried the pizza yet)
