The seafood is so great & fresh. You must sit outside whether up with views of bay or down with partial views and atmosphere- it's so relaxing yet casual. Great kids meals and at a much lower price. And really good hot bread. Can be a bit pricey but it's worth it when you are tired and everyone is hungry.... More

We have made it an annual tradition to have dinner at the Ketch. Each time we've had decent service, and we've always enjoyed our meals. We get there before 6 (or is it 6:30?) so the kids eat free, which is great. My husband always enjoys the pitcher of margaritas, and he orders different entrees each time but has enjoyed... More

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

We went to Happy Hour for drinks on a Sunday afternoon in August.The open air upstairs deck had a view of the bay. Our bartender, Mike was very busy but kept no one waiting for service. He was friendly and made our visit enjoyable. We didn't try the food. We had a drink called a bushwhacker which was good. We... More

I will pay any price for a good meal. This place was so overpriced with their ala carte menu. I will never go back here. I ordered the scallops with wild mushroom risotto and asparagus. Scallops were good, risotto undercooked and asparagus bitter. Presentation was a joke. For $30 I should have gotten a better looking and tasting dish. Disappointed.

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

Wow, I'm not even sure where to begin... I guess by saying that I will never be paying this establishment another visit. The service was so poor it was staggering. The waiter was slow and we constantly had to track him down. We tried to ask his support person for assistance, but she literally ignored us every time we asked... 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

This restaurant had incredible water views. The drinks - Monkey Walks into a Bar & the Mango Mojito - were incredible! Our favorite dishes were the seared tuna and saffron angel hair pasta with lobster. Book it on a clear evening!
