Description: Labrador Lounge, now in Normandy Beach, was born in Belmar when being busy meant the wait staff only got one surf break and walking your dog on the beach did not result in a monetary fine. Today, the Normandy Beach restaurant serves up Marilyn Schlossbach's popular vacation-inspired cuisine. Whether you order a Lobster Dynamite sushi roll, baby back ribs, or Marion's crab cakes, each dish is served with effortless style that is complemented by warm ocean breezes and the summer salt air. Opened all year long, bring your own, bring it often and indulge in the Labrador Lounge experience.

Labrador Lounge is a godsend - wonderful, creative menu, excellent service, and very "shoresy" atmosphere. Not pretentious and NOT old-time Jersey Shore. We love going there. Lunches are not as reliable as dinners - still good, but can be uneven - at least on our past visits. Dinners are consistently excellent. Expect to spend some money, but no more than... More

Great menu with many unique dishes . Feel like we are away on an island vacation when eating here. Inside and outside tables. Good service. Owner very attentive. You wont be disapointed. Great food, impresive presintation. Give them a try.

We finally got to try this charming little restaurant....just another gem in the Marylin Schlossbach chain. Tough to get to with Sandy reconstruction still going on (why still ??) but worth the trip. Cool menu and great follow through with the food quality and taste. BYOB as well ! Highly recommended....I will go back for more.

One of the few restaurants that remains open all year. But during the winter only for the weekends. Gets really crowded during the summer season so you'll need reservations. It's a BYOB. The food is good, but may seem a bit pricey for some customers.

It's off season in Ocean Beach NJ, but the service and food at the Labrador Lounge was extremely good. Had there Caribean dish. Very fresh fish and it's a BYOB place. No waiting but it was off season.

We have eaten here about 4 times over the last few years (missing 2 summers due to Sandy)....but we came back this summer, for dinner with the children (4 yo, 2 yo). We inhaled the lobster mac and cheese, Pop's corn, and the mediterranean platter. My husband and I shared the fresh catch of the day....and it was loaded with... More

This was our third time at the Labrador Lounge within a couple of years and it continues to be a must visit while we are vacationing at the shore. The menu offers a wide range of appetizers and entrees to suit any type of pallet. From fall off the bone bbq ribs, to soft shell crab sushi rolls. Anything you... More

My family and I have been coming to the Lab for YEARS!! It continues to be our favorite restaurant anywhere. We visit all summer long and occasionally during the winter. The menu has its traditional items, which are always excellent, and is complimented daily by creative every changing specials. The sushi menu is terrific. The staff is absolutely awesome -... More

The decor and atmosphere was super weird.. but the service was excellent. The chicken enchiladas (with the spicy sauce) were good, but not great. I feel like if they put onions or had salsa or something, just to spice it up a bit, it would have tasted great. I was disappointed to give the Labrador Lounge a 3 star. Hopefully,... More

Byob! And great food. Have had dinner here before but must comment that everything from appetizers to entrees were superb! We were a group of 8 including 4 children and had reservations for 630. Table was waiting for us when we arrived and food was served on in timely manner. We sat indoors but you can sit either inside or... More
