The title says it all for me. Carmen’s exceeded my dining expectations last week. Four of us recently had dinner there on a post-season Friday night. Before our entrees, we ordered 2 apps, an order of calamari and an order of mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto. The calamari was good, but the mozzarella and prosciutto dish was outstanding. Following the appetizers... More

The menu has something for everyone! From seafood to steaks the food is cooked to perfection. Ample portions for the price, you will not leave here hungry! The Filet Neptune is one of our favorites.The staff is pleasant, friendly, and eager to serve.

Rob R-I was at the same dinner as the” Really, really bad” reviewer below. My impression is that you think I’m the person who wrote the review when in fact I’m not. My dinner was exactly the same and was equally as bad. I’m actually the person who did complain to the server after dinner telling her how bad the... More

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

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
