Convenient if you are staying on IOP

This a nice little café with pleasant décor and a decent menu. It's convenient if you are staying on Isle of Palms, but not worth traveling to given all the other choices. They have specials and fresh seafood selections. It's a bit noisy and the tables are a little too close so you hear everything... read more

The Long Island Café is located in a strip shopping center next to a grocery store in the heart of Isle of Palms, a beach resort town. It is small with limited décor, but none of that matters. The wait staff were personable, attentive and accommodating. The food was outstanding. The she crab soup, a specialty of Charleston, was thick... More

This was a very nice, white tablecloth type restaurant. We made reservations and probably would not have got in otherwise. The food was excellent - not one complaint in our party of 6. Everything was so tasty - I chose the Mahi Mahi with veg of the day and mashed potatoes - even down to the broccoli! My chocolate orange... More

The food was excellent, the people very friendly and a very nice atmosphere. We ate there three times during our two week stay, and each time the food was excellent, not just good but excellent. The wait staff suggested the specials, saying that they love the way the chef cooked it, and you could tell they were sincere. We got... More

We've visited a couple of times over the years and always find fantastic seafood. The cafe, in a strip mall next to Harris Teeter, is always filled with well-dressed people who seem to know where to get fine food. Desserts are wonderful too, so save room. Service is friendly and excellent.

Great food and service here at the Long Island Cafe. I ordered one of the specials which was a redfish and it was delicious.

On our first full day of a one month vacation on Isle of Palms, my wife and I had lunch at this restaurant, located in the same shopping strip as a Harris Teeter supermarket. Service was efficient and the place settings were nicer than the average lunch cafe. My wife had a turkey BLT, while I had a pimento grilled... More

We were just arrived in town and hungry. The Long Island Cafe provides excellently prepared food. The seafood and vegetables dishes were well prepared to the proper doneness - not over cooked. They do use some locally sourced ingredients and indicate them on their blackboard over the bar. They have nice wine moderately priced list and full bar, but only... More
