“Undecided”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Not sure if I liked the place or not. It has some things going for it; outside dining with a view of the bay, plenty of parking, and seafood (which I was looking for). The food was somewhat better than I expected for a counter order but not as good as Ship Bottom Shellfish. Service was non-existent...we got the meal and never saw anyone again. This may be how the restaurant operates, just be advised.

“Good seafood, casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We chose this restaurant because of the outdoor seating by the bay. It is located in a touristy area with shops and other restaurants. You order your meal at the counter, sit where you'd like, and a waitress brings your meal out to you. I was expecting more cafeteria-like food. I ordered fresh blackened tuna. The fish was prepared just right with delicious flavor from the blackened spices. It came with a large salad and vegetables. I was pleasantly surprised with the meal and would go back here again.

“Probably the best value on LBI”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic location overlooking the bay with excellent views especially at sunset. Huge menu with everything freshly prepare to order. Very accommodating to modifying almost any dish. Reasonable prices. Very popular with locals. Family run. No table service -order at the counter and wait a few minutes for your food to be cooked. Often chaotic because of the crowds but it's part of the fun. Wonderful fireworks party on 7/4.)

“Everything fresh, extremely accommodating, same owners for 28 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

I have been coming to the Gazebo for over 20 years and have heard the same thing from many people. Situated in the back of an outdoor mall, they are family owned and operated , do not do much advertising, but have many, many repeat customers. When my family comes down for the week, we eat lunch or dinner here at least 4 times. It is extremely family friendly, and offer everything from chocolate chip pancakes, to burgers and vegetable wraps, as well as fresh seafood, lobster, pasta dishes, and sushi and the best eggplant parm I've ever had. Though there is a beautiful view of the bay, and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, close to the waterpark and amusements in Beach Haven, it is a little more casual, there are no white tablecloths but you are usually seated immediately. If it is a very overcast day and all the tourists stay off the beach and hang around at the shops up there, it will be a little busier, but that should be expected. It is quite often a great place to sit and relax anytime of day, a little bit away from it all, and nobody rushes you out. Give it a try and I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised, especially with the dinner entrees and pastas, to have an excellent meal at half the price of many other LBI restaurants. If you happen to be down for July 4th, the municipal fireworks go off on the bay right in front of the restaurant, and they offer an excellent buffet just for that evening,

“Didn't Hate but Don't Love”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

If you are looking for a quick meal, this is a great place. We have eaten here a couple times over the summer before hitting up Fantasy Island. They are located at Bay Village on the bay side. We normally get the cheese steaks which are good. We had the sushi here once and I didn't care for it. Great views of the bay and perfect place for sunset. Place is a little disorganized and very busy. So if you are looking for a quick bite to eat w/OK food, this will do just fine then. Great place for kids since you eat outside and not formal by any means.
