I ate here with my wife and two children . Its a normal shore eatery. Nothing to fancy. The menu is small seating is tight and they dont serve alcohol. They dont have much of a kids selection either. We ate here because there was long waits at mostly all the other restaurants in the area. I wasn't unhappy, just... More

If you only go out once for breakfast or lunch while in LBI, it should be to this place. While we waited for our table, I couldn't believe how many people, when told would be a 90 minute wait, simply shrugged their shoulders and said 'OK', and put their name on the list. It's that good. The food is amazing... More

My husband and I always stop for breakfast at the Sand Box during our vacation time on LBI. This year we brought some of our children and grandchildren. They fell in love with The Sand Box also. The food is great and very different but there is something for everyone. Love the owners and the staff, friendly and efficient. The... More

A highlight to the summer is having breakfasts at the Sandbox. Dana and Vinny are the best hosts, and their staff is always friendly and helpful. Yesterday had the pecan toffee french toast (a special), and it was just awesome. My grandkids can't wait to go to the Sandbox each year as well. They are always kept busy looking at... More

Greeted by Vinny and told 45 minute wait...which turned into 1 1/2 hours. During wait, customers wanted to add their name to wait list. People decided to opt out of waiting. Owner talked about them in front of us and the crowd, "I understand them not wanting to wait but i don't need them loitering on MY sidewalk." He broke... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Sand Box Cafe for a late breakfast. The owners greeted us and were very friendly. Our waitress was their daughter, she was so awesome and definitely assisted with the pleasant atmosphere. I had waffles with peaches, so delicious. The peaches were so fresh and the waffles tasted home made. My boyfriend had a... More
