Looks are decieving - it's in a strip mall but the food is delicious.

Every time we go it's soooo good - delicious, friendly, clean and accommodating - fresh catch - is always unreal.

The reviews were so great, this was the first place we went to eat on the evening that we arrived in Isle of Palms, SC. In our room at the resort there was a brochure advertising this place as a seafood special, and so we said why not? An easy drive from the Seaside Inn, in a strip mall, next... More

We always eat here on our first night at the beach. Excellent!!! She crab soup is the best here, especially with the little container of sherry. One of my friends always orders their fish special and has always been delighted with her meals. The temperature can be a little warm so dress lightly. Call ahead for reservations because everyone knows... More

Called for dinner reservations and were told they were booked for the following evening. While in for lunch with the family I overheard them on the phone granting a reservation for six for the same evening. Doesn't exactly give you the warm fuzzies. Guess I shouldn't have mentioned that highchair. I get it- it's a business and kids don't order... More

Hi. I am very sorry that you felt like you weren't treated fairly because you have children. I assure you this was not the case. We are a very family friendly restaurant and would never turn anyone away because they have children in their party. I was not there the afternoon you overhead the conversation so I'm not sure what... More

Great local restaurant in Isle of Palms you want to make sure is on your list during your vacation to the beach. Recommend reservations but they are very accommodating. She crab is one of the better ones in the area where they bring the sherry along the side for you to add. Pasta of the day that evening was lobster... More

Wow! The Cafe has been redecorated since I was last here, and the new decor is very pleasing - quite nautical, and a good bit lighter than it used to be. My friend and I were seated promptly, and our server offered drinks and told us about the specials. We both ordered fish sandwiches, and I would be hard-pressed to... More

We travel to Wild Dunes once or twice a year. We continue to try new seafood restaurants and discover many good ones. But we always come back to Long Island Café. The service is always great and pleasant. The food is always the absolute best. It does not matter what you order, it will be excellent. We will always visit... More

Wonderful restaurant with fantastic food. The nightly fish specials are wonderful. The dessert menu is the best on the Isle of Palms.
