For once, it was disappointing ...

Always go to Greenhouse Cafe while visiting LBI, though this past visit was disappointing. Food overcooked.

We go to Greenhouse mostly for dinner during the week, they have some specials and discounts which you have to ask about. If you don't ask they don't offer. But that being said, the food is consistently good, large portions, large enough for my wife and I to share. We usually get an extra soup & share a pasta/seafood dish.... More

We need to have gluten free meals and Greenhouse always has plenty of selections. One of our favorite place to eat in the LBI area.

Have eaten here several times with my girl. Always a great meal - from salads to burgers to sandwiches and gourmet pizza. Food is great, setting is comfortable and staff is always very pleasant and efficient. It is almost a staple of ours when heading off the island.

Been at the same location for decades. Food and service are average, interior is dated and tired. Prices are high for the quality of food you receive. Unfortunately, this is endemic for many of the eateries on Long Beach Island.

Considering myself a clam chowder connoisseur, I came here because this place has won the award for many years, or so the sign outside claimed. On the positive side, the owner obviously takes pride and care in his establishment as he was there making sure everything was alright. On the downside, he was being a bit too bossy to the... More

The Greenhouse Cafe is always a welcome visit! Don, the owner, shows real pride and hospitality, and his staff does the same. The menu has something for everyone, and it's all done with fresh ingredients, lovingly prepared. They treat tourists and locals alike as they would treat their own families! They're super flexible with seating, and they do a great... More
