I live nearby so it pains me to give an average review of a place so close. I'm always hoping the food gets better or service a little nicer. The staff is fine, it's the owner. He acts as if he is bothered that you came in. I'm a local; at least act like you recognize me. Menu is huge... More

Had an enjoyable breakfast for two. Service was very nice. French toast was not exactly what we were expecting, but it tasted just fine. Greenhouse states in their advertisements a 20% discount for breakfast between 8 and 10 AM on weekdays. However, to rcv this discount you need to ask for it?! That seems to be on the borderline of...

We go to this restaurant quite often. The dinners are always good and the pizza is fantastic! My husband had the meat lovers double crust pizza and I had the spinach pizza. Just delicious! They are individual pizzas but plenty for two. We each took home half a pizza and can't wait to eat it for lunch tomorrow!

Whenever we are in Long Beach Island, my spouse and I almost always go to the Greenhouse Café for breakfast. The food are generally good and some dishes are discounted for seniors. Their lunches were good too but had not yet dinner there.

My family stayed in Ship Bottom recently and we chose this place for breakfast. The cafe was within walking distance from our hotel. The breakfast menu was vast with food choices for all types of breakfast eaters. Service was prompt and prices were average. I had an omelet with bacon, sausage, peppers and onions (although not called an omelet -... More

We've been vacationing on LBI during the early fall for the past 6-7 years. For the past few years we've made the Greenhouse Café one of our regular dinner spots. Unfortunately, our dinners were pretty mediocre again this year. So, despite reasonably good service, we've decided that there are just too many other well-recommended places to try next year and...

Maybe the least fresh food I've ever seen. Restaurant is dirty and gross, food was bad, prices are high, and it reminded me of a restaurant from the show "restaurant impossible". Never go here, it shouldn't even cross your mind.

We went to the greenhouse cafe twice for takeout. Both times we had a great meal. Loved the New England Clam Chowder. My daughter loved her Caesar Salad. I have eaten there in the past and was excited to go back. I wish we could have eaten at the restaurant but circumstances prevented it. Will be going back ASAP.

We ate at Greenhouse Cafe for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of items on the breakfast menu. I had French toast and home fries and both were delicious -- the french toast was deep fried and really tasty. There were a variety of menu choices, and it was clear that there were tons of healthy options (clearly... More

Had the manhattan style clam chowder and can now say I understand why awards are given. This was simply delicious. Loaded with clams and flavor. Seasoned well. Not overly salty but just the right amount. Yum!
