The view of the bay is great and that's exactly what you must be paying for. We sat at the bar and had a drink, the bartender although nice messed up my drink even though my husband specifically let him know how to make.....a white wine spritzer (not exactly something rare and exotic). There were 3 other people at the... More

Yes, the view of the sunset is pretty but the food & drinks are pricey & tasteless, Got a special drink that the bartender was making for $1 but because the waitress brought it to me , it was $9!!!!!. Food is pricey & not f good quality. It really is a tourist trap. There are better choices in LBI.... More

Decided to give this place a shot and make my own descion considering all the negative reviews. Well, I should have listened. To keep it short, the entire staff are young college girls. I respect them trying to make money over the summer but you need an experienced leader to guide them about do's and don'ts like dont lean on... More

So here's the deal. They offer a lobster bake on Mondays and Tuesdays, buy one get one free for $40 but the Sea Shell has lobster for $19, so its about the same price. They also have a kids eat free promotion with each paid adult meal. Tried to use it on a Monday when my wife and I got... More

Came here fora dinner with my boyfriend to watch the sunset and have dinner. A little skeptical after reading the previous reviews but was not disappointed. Only a 20-30 minute wait which was spot on at 7:30 at night. Had the steamers and coconut shrimp appetizers which were very good. For dinner I chose the scallop special which was very... More

My girlfriend and I decided to go to the ketch thinking we would be having a good dinner with a nice view of the water. All our food was over cooked except for the appetizer. For the amount you pay at this place it was unacceptable. We should have just gone to Barry's do me a flavor for not so... More

Came here for dinner after seeing their advertisement which sounded pretty good, it was fair to be generous. I came in at around 8pm and it wasn't as busy as many other establishments in the area...1st bad sign. I requested indoor seating and was told that outdoor seating would get me served faster as they only had 1 server for... More

I've been vacationing at LBI for since the 80s and have seen restaurants come and go and this is one that should be gone soon, hopefully. How hard is it for an alleged seafood place to make shrimp scampi and crab cakes? Very hard for the Ketch where the scampi was served luke warm to cold and went brought out... More

Our group of 11 (5 being kids) found ourselves without dinner plans at 6pm on a Saturday in August..We made some calls while driving south to the few restaurants that we knew took reservations, but couldn't find anything until after 8pm. We had eaten at the BoatHouse across the street earlier in the week, and knew the Ketch was a... More
