This restaurant consistently is so good. The food is fresh the salad which I love are delicious. They have something called wrinkle beans and it’s string beans. That are absolutely wonderful. We keep coming back.

I eat here at least once on every trip and they never disappoint. My waiter Jeff was very attentive and professional. As always the food was excellent. Best cream of crab soup, superb citrus fire shrimp tacos. And the best Martinis on OC

Longboard Cafe is top notch. Every food item we tasted was cooked to perfection and the staff was all about great customer service. We ate there two nights in a row to try more of the many items they offer. This is probably the best...Ocean City restaurant we have ever eaten in when we visit OC. Many locals were eating there too, which says a lot about a restaurant. We cannot wait to go back.More

We detoured to Ocean City solely for Maryland crabcakes during our roadtrip, but found that they were no longer on the menu here because of price increases. After we got over our disappointment, we really enjoyed the excellent service, the cool vibe of eating outside,...and our fish tacos and French dip sandwich. All of the ingredients were fresh and delicious. Highly recommend!More

This is not the first time we have eaten at this restaurant and had very similar experience. First, we came during a rain shower on a Saturday evening. We were told that since we didn't have a reservation, the wait would be 1 1/2 hours....My husband inquired about outside tent seating. It was full but they would seat us on the deck in the rain where my pants were soaked by wet chair. Nevertheless, we agreed. Our server was very slow; probably overwhelmed. We debated on leaving but didn't because it was getting late. The cocktails were just adequate and beer not cold. Prices, I think are rediculous for what you get. We had chips and dip. Okay. And burgers which were $16 + . Nothing special. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a friendly, laid back place with unique, local entrees, think again !!!! Oh, and I also have to say dirty restrooms both times.More

Longboard is a regular stop for us and always solid. Call ahead for a reservation and come a few minutes early to grab a drink on their outside waiting area. Food is fresh, creative, and just the right portion. We had the duck, Asian wings,...chips and dip and mexican street corn and they were all incredible. Also love their drinks!More

After reading all the great reviews decided to try it today. We are staying down the street. Went for a late lunch and did not disappoint . The atmosphere and the employees are great. I had the crab BLT taco’s , crap soup and a...peachy margarita. All were delicious. Also had the Buffalo chicken wrap .All items were fresh and delicious. Our waiter Eric was friendly and accommodating and also gave us a bit of history of the restaurant. This is a must try when visiting OC and I will definitely return to try other menus items.More

Very disappointed. Had reservations and waited 20 minutes to be seated. Waited another 20 minutes before a server showed up - I had to go find one. Asked for bread or rolls - "we don't have any." This place serves burgers & sandwiches!! Food -...mediocre at best. Don't see the attraction - never again.More
