This is a favorite stop when you first get on LBI, before heading further south. It is a real draw for beer aficionados, with many bottled and on tap microbrews. They have a good list of craft cocktails also. The food is solid, and in many cases exciting. Leaning heavily toward seafood, there are also excellent red meat dishes and... More

This was our first time at this restaurant. We were 6 and seated promptly on a Saturday night at 7:00 in a room well away from the bar and the very high noise level. Service was excellent. Beer selections and menu options were carefully explained. Appetizers were very good especially the conch fritters, mussels (some weren't open though) and raw... More

Outstanding draught beers and well prepared food make Arlingtons a fun time for all. Choose from 20 different draught beers from local and international locations. The food selections are interesting as we enjoyed fresh oysters and beer. Dinners were very good. I recommend the braised short rib, dan dan noodles and the lobster roll. The bar was crowded and vey... More

This is the perfect place if you want the best and hottest craft beers available. It is also a bar that knows it's wines so the selection is pretty damn good. The food borders on GastroPub, with a great choice of apps and things to share. We had been there before, in the freezing winter, and being back in the... More

The Arlington is conveniently located on Long Beach Island, just about in the middle of the island. The restaurant is known for having an amazing menu of beers. That being said they also have top shelf beverages. The menu is quite varied and creative.

The Arlington used to be Bayberry Inn. They have a good size bar and seating area for dinner. Nice wine and beer selection. Food is just ok-we gave it 3 attempts over a one year span.

We were thrilled to learn that a new, upscale restaurant had opened on Long Beach Island and reserved a table for 3 (my wife, my college-age son, and me.) Our experience started positively - the servers were conversational & eager to please, the space was attractive with exposed brick (although the main room echoed a bit too much and was... More

We always loved Yellow Fin, and we ddid love Plantation when it first opened. Daddy-O is good but not always consistent, but we had great service there last Friday. The Arlington is a welcome addition! Great, fresh food and pleasant service.

Our friends (who work and live on LBI) recommended The Arlington for our double date. We are glad they did! The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful with the menus. We enjoyed our appetizers (ceviche, scallops, burrata) and loved our entrees (swordfish, shortribs), especially the shortribs... rich sauce with the crunch of shredded cabbages made for great combo/texture. The inventive... More
