The service is great and has a great atmosphere. Not pleased with the food-French onion soup bland with tasteless, chewy mozzarella. Scallop dish was just ok. The sushi is great though. Pricey for amount of food and quality/taste.

A jersey shore tradition, you'll wait sometime for a table during peak hours but it is worth the wait. My sister and her husband and son had excellent sushi and our meal was very good, it is on the expensive side for what you get. They have entertainment, happy hours, outdoor seating great experience and good service. They need more... More

Nice local pub. Good decor and beverage selection. The food is iffy. King of too expensive for what it is and sometimes the chef must have a bad day. I've had some not so good meals here.

Our server Jane was friendly and professional. What else can you ask of a server? Unfortunately for her, my asparagus was over cooked, my son's burger was dry, and we all had to have our utensils traded out for clean ones because every piece had dried food on them. Oh and the hostess wasn't even there when when arrived and... More

We were just looking for a quick drink and/or snack before a show nearby. Our group of five came in the back door and was told to walk through and we would be seated. When we were neither greeted nor seated, we found a booth. That's when the hostess came up and chided us for not reporting to the podium... More

We went there for the "Dueling Pianos" entertainment that might. They were something of a disappointment, a big step down from dual pianos we loved in New Orleans. The food was average (the featured, "famous" they said Clams Casino weren't outstanding). The waiter seemed out of place and would have been much happier at a library desk.

Went here for dinner during one of our nights staying in LBI. Clams on the half shell were awesome. Also had a Mahi sandwich which was good and the kids loved the pizza. The service was friendly but it did take a long time to get our food but other then that a good place to take the family for... More
