We were looking for something different than the typical boardwalk fare. We looked at the menu and decided to stay. They were very busy but we managed to grab a table. The menu is chicken, turkey, fish and veggie. We had salmon, tofu in a peanut sauce and a veggie burger. The first two were great... read more

If you don't want fast food, go here! Vegan & carnivore dishes available! We've had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here many times. Tried chili, soup, breakfasts, quesadillas, salads, sandwiches, desserts...all great! Banana dessert awesome and good for you ! Who knew healthy could taste so good!

I look forward to going here every Summer. Although I am not Vegan, there is not much healthy fare on the boardwalk so it is nice to find food that is. My daughter likes the baked goods and I like the lunch options.

We ate here 10 years ago and loved it. We finally returned to Ocean City and we were happy to discover the restaurant is still going strong. Service and Food is still exceptional!

You can only handle so much pizza, fries, ice cream, fudge and so on! Finding the bashful banana was such a relief! Good, healthy food that you don't feel guilty for eating. The service was quick and our waitress was friendly and accommodating. Even the kids liked it! A nice break from the grease and sugar!

A nice healthy alternative to most boardwalk food and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed salmon which came with plenty of fresh broccoli and rice. We also enjoyed the salad with feta and chicken.

Ocean City eateries are definitely lacking in quality overall...this place was a definite cut above. We ordered an omelette which was delicious and came with homestyle cut potatoes and toast...really delicious. And the chocolate chip pancakes were excellent. We would most definitely recommend.

We have always eaten at Bashful Banana ever since visiting Ocean City years ago. We were never disappointed. This year we tried another restaurant, and we learned our lesson! Bashful Banana is the place to go. They serve healthy, delicious food!! And there are also so many healthy choices for a dessert. The banana whips are fantastic with a variety... More

We LOVE this place. The banana whips (which this place is famous for) are a great healthy, vegan and gluten-free alternative to mainstream NJ shore eating. Top it off with some great vegan/gluten-free baked goods, delicious/diverse breakfast items and a sweet, accommodating staff who were patient with our tall order (thanks especially to Nicole!) and you've got the best spot...

We regularly enjoy the healthy food at Bashful Banana. I'm still not sure what "nayonaisse" is but it is delicious. I particularly enjoy the breads served here. It is always fun to eat outside underneath the illuminated fake palm trees.
