We had the soft shell crabs since they were in season, but wish we were in town longer to try other menus items. Everything else looked great too. We will definitely eat here again when back in town. Great place. I highly recommend.

They of course had a kids menu for my kids which was fine, but nothing too exotic. Service was prompt and professional , with... More

The atmosphere is nice and coastal feeling. The ambiance was better once the sun started to go down and the lighting wasn't as bright. The food was very good and the server was nice. Very accommodating for kids. Paper table cloth so the kids could draw and be entertained. We went right at 7 and they got slammed... Took a... More

We have enjoyed Long Island Café's great offerings... Specials are always great. The menu is fresh, creative, yet casual. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and accommodating. Long Island is a must while near IOP...no need to look any further.

Like everyone I was surprised by this restaurant given it's location in a strip mall. With that, upon entering the restaurant, do you quickly forget where you are. The variety of restaurants that we tried in Isle of Palms, this was hands-down the best. If you're looking for low country fair with an upscale twist, including lots of seafood and... More

Stopping in a strip mall,with a tremendous amount of exterior renovations underway, we never expected the oasis of calm when we entered. From the smiling, attentive hostess, to very knowledgeable wait staff, every aspect of our experience more than exceeded our expectations. The menu choices were well varied, perfectly prepared and delicious. We also appreciated the pride they took in... More
