My husband and I made reservations for dinner for two. We were seated promptly upon arrival. The staff was friendly and courteous. We ordered fresh seafood combinations, which were delicious! We dine out often and enjoy seafood. Every piece of fish on our plates was cooked PERFECTLY! Seasoning was spot on! Thank you, Carmen's and compliments to your chef. We... More

Absolutely terrible. One of the worst dinners I have ever had. I really expected something much better given all of the positive reviews. Don't bother looking at the online menu because it has no relation to what will be on the menu you're given. Like to see how bad a simple pasta dish can be? Here's the place. I know... More

This was the first time my wife and I have eaten here and we were not disappointed. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were seated at a nice corner table as I requested. The inside of the restaurant was very nice and everyone was very nice. Our server Kasie was exceptional and made sure we were always taken care... More

Service was very good. We all had good meals. Loud party in front room which is only separated by a room divider.. Make sure there is not a party there when you make reservation!

I have never written a review before but I feel compelled to share my opinion about Carmen's. We've had our home on LBI for 6 summers and have tried just about all of the restaurants over time. As a result we opt to Eat In most nights in our wonderful backyard where the food is better. Last night my husband... More

We have our favorites when we visit LBI and usually stick to our routine...we were so glad we decided to try something new and have dinner at Carmen's. The food was delicious, the atmosphere casual and comfortable and we really enjoyed the service we got, Sandy was great! We had a very nice dinner and will definitely return next year.

Wonderful food, classy fellow diners. Now, if the service could just be turned up a notch. While waiting for truly spectacular salads and entrees, we were never given bread and then we had to ask three times for butter rather than oil. Let's make sure everyone knows that butter is once again receiving good grades from health people. Food is... More

Went on a Thursday night of the Labor Day weekend. We were told it would be about an hour wait but they got us in in 30 minutes. The food was prompt, hot and very good. The service was friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back when we return to Beach Haven.

We went for the early menu and found it really, really worth the try. The resttaurant was empty but the hostess said it was booked, however they seated us and the service ws great. The young woman who served us was polite, friendly and was helpful. The food is well prepared and more than enough. The restaurant filled up quickly... More
