Fine dining on LBI

I traveled here yesterday from out of town to visit with a few friends. We decided to go here for dinner. The place was very busy and the staff was beyond exceptional. They knew what to do and how to stay on pace with the crowd flow. The only recommendation I do have is if you get the shrimp... read more

Went here for a casual dinner and took a bottle of wine- felt very out of place. This is a very kid/family place with tables outside. We were given a corkscrew to open our wine. Water and all drinks served in paper cups. The menu has lots of stuff for kids. The lobster roll was enjoyed by my partner, I... More

We ate lunch at the Maine Course during our long weekend in LBI in July 2015. All I wanted was a Lobster Roll while down the shore and we found this resturant on Trip Advisor. Based upon the great reviews we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed! The Maine Course offers Lobster Rolls two ways - hot... More

We went to the Main Course for lobster rolls. At the last minute I decided to have popcorn shrimp but my wife had the lobster roll. But, first about the location and the setting. It is located on the second level of a kind of shopping center on the corner of 9th and Long Beach Boulevard. It is very small.... More

Back on LBI at one of our favorite places. Just had a great lunch with the family and in-laws. Once again the food and service was awesome. The tuna seared salad was a hit. This is a must visit on LBI and is located in the charming Bay Village. We'll be back, next time for dinner as we joined the... More

We spent many weekends in Long Beach Island (LBI) since our daughter and her husband have a ocean front house there. We recently visited The Maine Course Seafood New England Style at Schoner's Wharf in Beach Haven and was disappointed of the limited menu it offered. Most of the dishes are fried seafood and the chowder was nothing to write... More

Waited 10 minutes before we even got greeted and received menus. Server had no knowledge of the menu ! She seemed like she wasn't even trained. Portions are so small for the fried greasy food. Lower your prices...won't be returning here.

I know they have fab seafood here but wanted a burger, & again, I wasn't disappointed. The burger was juicy and delicious and in a yummy toasted roll with lettuce and tomato and onion and cheese and it was yummy. I ate & savored every bite! Ty, The Maine Course! I will be back soon!

Lobster roll was the BEST! Just as good or even better than the ones from Kennebunkport! Lump fresh lobster used...no fillers. The bread was also fresh. The entire wait staff was friendly. The owner was hospitable (we almost forgot we're at a restaurant)! BONUS: we found this place by accident. I called a number of places on trip advisor with... More

We ordered 2 trays of lobster rolls for our rehearsal dinner in October and they were perfect for our New England style dinner. They were delicious, perfectly portioned, we had each roll cut into thirds so they were like sliders. The guests raved about them also. We felt the price was fair for what you get, they're filled with large... More
