Not bad. Thought it would be better.

We were looking for some seafood since we were down the shore. Found this and gave it a try since reviews were okay. Place is small, with parking for a few cars. Interior is kind of dark, and reminded me of a diner. It was full when we got there. Menu was packed full. It was like reading a... read more

My mother and I were seated and shortly after us TWO tables -- one of about 12 people and the other of 4 were seated. BOTH of those tables were quickly attended to by a waitress while we still sat and waited. My mother finally got up to nicely bring this to the hostess's attention. A waitress wearing an arm...

We had a typical brunch of omelets and everything was good. Prompt service. Our favorite item was the sweet potato fries - mmmm. I would go back for those!

Nice place for breakfast. Really is a greenhouse but kept air conditioned to comfortable temp. Had two eggs, home fries, toast and a half cantaloupe. Attentive service.

My wife is vegetarian and prefers gluten-free. She had an extensive choice, and thought her selection ( a gluten-free seafood pasta) was outstanding. Portions are very generous. Lots of non-vegetarian choices. Very nice and attentive waitstaff. Make a reservation-- it is packed.

My wife and I have eaten at this delightful restaurant often. We've come for lunch, dinner, and even breakfast these past few years. I have absolutely no complaints about any of the choices served at any of the three eating venues. While we enjoy their dinners and lunches, I must add that breakfast is our favorite -- perhaps because that's... More

Went to the Greenhouse Cafe for Lunch. I appreciate that they offer gluten free, trans fat free and healthy options for just about every meal. I ha the sausage and pepperoni pizza with vodka sauce. Wonderful! The linguine and white clam sauce was also good! A great restaurant that's open year round on LBI.

This was the first restaurant on Long Beach Island to ban smoking. It has a ton of healthy items on the menu. No gluten or trans fat and many heart-smart meals. Their Spinach Pizza is fabulous. They have a red and white clam chowder that just out of this world.
