Description: Labrador Lounge, now in Normandy Beach, was born in Belmar when being busy meant the wait staff only got one surf break and walking your dog on the beach did not result in a monetary fine. Today, the Normandy Beach restaurant serves up Marilyn Schlossbach's popular vacation-inspired cuisine. Whether you order a Lobster Dynamite sushi roll, baby back ribs, or Marion's crab cakes, each dish is served with effortless style that is complemented by warm ocean breezes and the summer salt air. Opened all year long, bring your own, bring it often and indulge in the Labrador Lounge experience.

“Good doggy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Ok, so I haven't actually been to the Labrador Lounge, but I referred people there who were so happy that I felt compelled to write this review. A delightful couple came from VT to spend their honeymoon at my Bed and Breakfast. They asked me to find a dog-friendly restaurant as they wanted to dine with someone who would be traveling with their dog. AH!

I made some calls, picked some brains, and was told Labrador Lounge was the place to be. So I sent the couple over. Not only did they love the food, the atmosphere and everything else there, they bought the T-Shirt! I cracked up at breakfast when the new groom proudly showed his souvenier.

Great job Labrador Lounge. I hope to enjoy you in person -- soon:-)

“Great food at the Jersey shore!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Labrador Lounge in Normandy Beach is a great place to eat dinner. We were a party of 13 and our table was awaiting us when we arrived. It is a BYOB but we also purchased a couple of bottles of Jersey wine at the restaurant. We made many appetizer and entree selections and all were perfect. Well worth our time and money.

“great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

This is my family's favorite restaurant by the beach. Food is always fresh and delicious. Servers are great at recommendations. Did I mention that we love going because we can take our dog with us? They even bring him a little water bowl!

“Relaxing feel and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

The chef adds a special appeal to each dish- inventive, fun combinations. Lots of seafood - which is perfect since you are by the Shore. One of the nicest restaurants in the area between South Seaside Park and Point Pleasant.
definitely need a reservation on weekends. AND it doesn't break the bank b/c you can bring your own wine - some people even pre mix cocktails and bring them.
