We are 7 adults, 2 toddlers, and an infant. Tara was a great waitress. We had a big round table - great for conversation. Everyone was happy with the appetizers - calamari, sushi, coconut shrimp and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Tuna, pulled pork, hamburgers and kids pot pie - all very tasty. Try the sangria or the painkiller.

When we went to Buckalews this trip, I can't believe the treatment we received. A very friendly hostess greeted us, followed by the other hostess, Colette, who not only was extremely rude to my mother who is a senior citizen, but decided her behavior was good enough to become sarcastic and we walked out. So, unfortunately we had to go.... More

We have lived on the island for 45 years and always enjoyed eating at Buckalews. As vegetarians, we have loved their meatless chili and this year, their coconut vegetable stir fry was a huge hit! We couldn't wait to return for dinner. However, tonight I called to get a reservation and explained how my 89 year old handicapped mother had... More

Our friend has a summer beach house in Beach Haven. This is a place she likes to go. We went on a Monday night. They have pirate night on Mondays from 5-7 and they have activities and meeting a "pirate" are the highlights. They have a separate room for this. I posted a picture of the pirate. The food was...

Stopped in with family, 12 of us all adults. We had 8:00 reservations and were seated promptly. The place had a waiting line even at this time, the place is rather large and very noisy, so if you are looking for some quiet conversation this isn't the place to go. Even though there were 12 of us the service was... More

This is one of the Island's iconic watering holes with great food and entertainment. This is the real deal for the LBI experience! From the throw-back to the 1950's pictures on the walls, to the friendliest bartenders on LBI, to a truly quality wait-staff and delicious food - a must to stop and experience.

We held a luncheon event at Buckalew's on a weekday in mid-July. We wound up with 50-60 people. Everyone said the food was great, and there was plenty of it. Holly was very helpful before the event, and the service was excellent the day of. Buckalew's was able to accommodate our group in a large dining room separate from the... More

Loved the painkiller...awesome cocktail after a long day. We had seven people and needed three orders of clams casino to feed the six people eating them. Our server was a complete pro...pleasant and offered many tips and suggestions. The chicken cheesesteaks were a hit, the beef not so much. The ribs were great, as was the flank steak wrap. My...
