Stopped here late sunday afternoon and watched the football games while at the bar. Everyone was so friendly (mostly locals) and of course the roast beef sandwich was the best ever.

This is a local place that has been here for a long, long time. It's a bar, that happens to have very good bar food. Leo's roast beef sandwich is legendary (don't forget the horseradish) . The Colorado fries are tasty as is the grilled turkey and provolone. All the food is pretty good for that matter. They have the... More

Great location, easy to walk to, and friendly staff are the positives. Boring beer choices (unless Bud Light is your thing), bad food, and cash-only are the major negatives. Decor needs improvement too. Eighteen people there at 10 p.m. on a nice Saturday night should tell the ownership that they could be doing better.

It's been on the island for a long time and I've been going there for more than 40 years (ouch!) and their famous roast beef sandwiches haven't changed one bit. I've only stopped in for the sandwich, maybe some great onion rings and an ice cold beer but it's a great experience every time. It's a neighborhood bar with their... More

The best "bar food" on Long Beach Island. You will never be disappointed with their FAMOUS roast beef sandwich, be sure to add the Colorado fries basket as well. They are big enough to share with friends. (Ask for melted cheese along with the ranch) The atmosphere here alone makes this spot a great experience. They have the same bartenders... More

The Roast Beef Sandwich was GREAT ! but at 9 dollars ,no chips,fries or even a pickle lets get REAL. NOT worth 9 dollars without some kind of side, even if they threw you a bag of 50 cent chips might change my mind ??? mabye??? the owners should wake up this is not worth 9 dollars without a side...

We were supposed to just have a beer and a sandwich. But holy cow everything about the placed kicked butt! Roast beef sandwich was incredible and lets say one beer turned in to a bucket. Stop if you can! Great prices and friendly atmosphere. Will be stopping again.

The roast beef (beast) sandwiches are terrific. Eat in and have a cold beer with it. Or take it out to the beach and watch the water and sea gulls. Only drawback, no plastic, they do have an ATM machine there.

Plenty of beer and a roast beef sandwich that was awesome without hurting the wallet. What a cool place. Very local and warm environment. Will be back next year unlike other places I experienced on LBI.
