Having read a positive article about this place, we stopped here on a Friday afternoon to try the she-crab soup. It was good. The green or garden salad was also good. We were sat right away but our server was clearly busy. As we were unfortunately in a rush, we were relieved that the bartender... read more

We've been here before, and it was great, but yesterday was really exceptional. The six of us women on a week getaway have decided this is our favorite restaurant here on Isle of Palms. I'm always hesitant to ask for separate checks, but one of our party did and the server was gracious and cheerful about doing so. I always... More

I think I speak for all four of the people in my group when I say this was the best meal we had on isle of palms. A little pricy, but well worth it. The grits were outstanding, definitely the best I've ever had. I also got the chocolate bourbon pecan pie; it was huge and delicious. This place has... More

While visiting our Grandchildren in Charleston, were drove to the beach. Looking for seafood for lunch, we stumbled on the Long Island Cafe. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and was more than we expected. Each table was covered with a white table cloth and the silverware was wrapped in linen, which is not your normal shopping center... More

Service was friendly and helpful. Desserts are fresh made and beautifully presented . . .wish I had room to enjoy them but the ones passing by... More

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.
