nice neighborhood bar atmosphere

It's the kind of place you feel comfortable stopping in to have a drink in the old neighborhood. Erin is a great bartender and there is another guy there who"s name I did not get but he is a bald guy who knows his stuff. great baretender, great personality and he has been there for 16 years... read more

We've been here several times in the past year. Decent food at reasonable prices with a full bar. I had the grilled shrimp tacos and they were very good.

We look forward to eating here every year! The black and blue tuna is the best. Very delicious calamari and the coconut shrimp was delicious, too. Perfect for dinner with the family. Live music makes for a fun night.

The place was nearly empty at mid-afternoon, so it was impossible to get a feel for noise levels, etc. Staff was nice, though a bit sparse in the quiet between meals (2:30 pm) time. Food was okay. Nothing stood out - either good or bad.

Visited Buckalew's twice during a recent visit to Beach Haven. Great draft beer selection and good appetizers and pizza. I was also there for a private event and the passed appetizers were quite good as well as the buffet of pasta, baked chicken and sliced beef tenderloin. At night, the bar gets quite fun with live music and drink specials.

I had a nice time with my party of 9. I was disappointed they ran out of the hard rootbeer . My Mahi Mhai was ok but the rice was salty. They had a jazz band playing which was a bit too loud for our liking. My friends all said their food was fine too. Nothing great but certainly good... More

This is average. The food is decent, not great. The service is good not great! The atmosphere and views are ok, as they are on the main boulevard, so you don't really have an ocean view. It is a little bit Irish....The prices were a little high, but it is a tourist restaurant that operates 90% of their income comes... More

We had a GREAT dining experience at Buckalew's! We were there on a Tuesday, 'Irish' night. Seated right away, had an excellent server - Rich, who checked back several times, fixed a miscommunication on my clams, and generally just a good waiter. We ordered pretty simple food - The Guinness batter fish-and-chips, and the seared tuna - all great. The... More

We ate at Buckalew's during our vacation in LBI in July 2015. It was a busy Friday night but the wait was only about 15 minutes. We were seated inside in the porch dining area. It was very nice, the tables were not right on top of one another and there was plenty of room for my friends baby stroller.... More
