I have to admit that I go to a tea room mainly for the scones, clotted cream and tea. While the tea was great and scones were quite good I didn't like the food menu options. There were only three: either tea sandwiches, scones, and desserts (high tea ; scones and either tea sandwiches or desserts; or the high tea... More

We took our daughter here for her 25th birthday lunch. The atmosphere is like you are in someone's dining room. It's quiet and everyone can talk. The food we had was very good.My husband had the tuna in a tomato (it wasn't a jersey tomato, but they aren't out yet), my daughter had the veggie wrap, and I came for... More

Latz's is an excellent high end BYOB on Bay Ave. in Somer's Point. Service was attentive and flexible. The food was well prepared with generous portions. The property is charming and well maintained and they have a parking lot. Its a bit loud on the weekends and they cater to an older crowd. The owner's family previously owned the Knife... More

Dessert was warm baked choc cake with chocolate mousse and whipped cream served with fresh blueberries... More

Our first time at Latz's won't be our last. Our waiter was friendly and professional. The food was delicious, and presented beautifully! TRY THE SCONES! They're the best we've ever had, and that includes Britain!

This is my second time at Latz's By the Bay. I had hoped it would be a better experience than the first. While the dining room is very warm, cozy and inviting, I find the service to be very slow. The food is very good but at both times the food temperature was warm. I was hoping that maybe it... More

Once you enter this quaint restaurant, you know you will want to return again and again. From the delicious salads, to the mouth-watering seafood and steaks, you will truly enjoy every aspect of your meal. The desserts resemble pieces of art and taste even better than they look. Go, go, go and go again...

We have been there 3 times now and this place is the real deal. took a party there for my son's 18th birthday and the occasion was great.I spoke with Andrew Latz earlier in... More

Dinners come with a nice salad and bread with infused olive oil. While the bread was warm, it was also dry. My crab cakes were perfect--no filler whatsoever--which came with roasted red potatoes which were a bit crispy with tough skins. My husband's filet mignon (12oz) was cooked to perfection and came on a bed of goat cheese mashed potatoes.... More

A summer gem! The scallops we had could not have been bigger, my duck was not over cooked, moist and delicious, all crab in the cakes. The presentation beautiful! Even the coffee was perfect. Most helpful staff. Thanks Latz's by the Bay and keep up the good work! We will be going back!
