Just a note: none of the employees were wearing a mask. I did takeout and got wings, beer-battered fish tacos and a salad (3 meals). The food was very good and I would recommend this place but sit outside if you're going to eat at...the restaurant since no one is taking precautions during a pandemic.More

Hi Jean, glad you enjoyed the food! We only have several staff members who are unvaccinated and they are required to wear masks. The rest of us are vaccinated. We were the leaders in preventive precautions in ocean City and will remain so. Currently there...More

We made a 6pm reservation two days in advance because of the good reviews. Our waitress came to the table at 6:17pm with water. We went for Maryland crab cakes. They were out of crabmeat. It was like going to ME for lobster and being...told that they are out of Lobsters. I went with shrimp tacos. There are only really good reviews on their website. I thought it was a little "fishy" because you can't please all the people all the time. I put my review on Longboards website but it did not show up, however, they did respond to me personally.More

Hi Joanna. As I explained on the review you put on the website, like a great many restaurants this season, quality crab meat has been a tough commodity to obtain consistently. This is not Longboard's fault - this is a pervasive supply issue, and we...More

We loved our dinner experience! Impeccable and friendly service from Jen, delicious cocktails and wonderful food. Very family friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely recommend reservations. It was busy, but we were seated right away and had great service all night. We will be back!

Nice varied menu with indoor and outdoor dining. The appetizers were really good-Wrinkled green beans, so yummy, and the asparagus addiction also. Fillet mignon and crispy duck outstanding.

It’s been a couple of years since we last visited OC, a gap we never had before and only due to SARS. With our 45th Anniversary we are staying a week to relax, see the bench dedicated to our parents and see what’s changed especially...restaurants. This year we discovered Longboard Café and it definitely ranks as one of the best and not just in OC! When you visit a restaurant and you see the owner greet and mingle with his customers ( many who clearly have come time and time again),, as well as helping staff clear tables, you know you are in for an intimate experience and this restaurant clearly succeeds. Located on 67th Street, in small shopping mall (OC Towncenter Midtown Boardwalk) with clothing and other stores, Longboard was fortunate that it has an expanded outside seating area that spreads the length of the shopping area. It has a nice inside with tables set apart. It is noisy as many reviews have pointed out with a bar area packed. It was jam packed inside and outside Caroline G was our main server, awesome, very busy and helped by the rest of the team. She and everyone else stopped by to check on our food and the Owner came by to let us know our dishes were on their way. There is an extensive menu and I know we didn’t do justice to several items listed as both appetizers and entrees. We didn’t want to fill ourselves up so ordered the guac and chips. Also, some warm bread and butter was also served (so nice that unlike Northern Virginia there is no separate charge). For our main course we order the special fresh catch lime in coconut fish, my wife the mahi mahi and I had the Rockfish. Both excellent, tasty and delicious and well presented. I almost had the salmon. We were so full and about to leave when we were served a complementary dessert beautifully prepared for our Anniversary. Totally unexpected and another reason why this restaurant ranks so high. Its rare for me to give an unqualified outstanding rating but Longboard belongs in that category . Owner Rick Vack and your staff, you ROCK!!!!!More

Just a burger and a BLT, but certainly one of the best of either that we've ever had...have eaten from the dinner menu in the past & it was equally worthwhile. Would highlyrecommend this eatery.

I had lunch with my family here during our recent trip to OC. The covered outdoor deck had a pleasant breeze, despite being a few blocks from the ocean. Service was very good and I was very happy with the jerk mahi mahi tacos. There...was a kids menu too which came in really handy for my two picky eaters. Would definitely come here again for a casual, tasty meal.More

Throughout a difficult 2020 and now on to 2021 you cannot go wrong either for take out or dine in. For a good part of last year we did take out. Everything was ready on time and the food was as delicious as ever. Tonight...was the third time we have eaten in. Try the steak and fish kabobs. They are very tasty. This restaurant does a wonderful presentation with different sauces. The service is great and the wait staff friendlyMore
