Our usual lunch group enjoyed our visit to the Longboard today. Longboard burger, fish and steak tacos and Strawberry Fields salad. All very good. Nothing but thumbs up. We’ll be Back.

We ate at Longboard Cafe last evening. Our waiter was fantastic and so was the food. We called in advance to get a reservation and to reserve a spot that would be outside and away from others. The gal who took our reservation remembered the...call and positioned us in the perfect spot. We were very appreciative. The view is of a parking lot, but it was still fun to eat outside. Our waiter when asked gave some recommendations. He really hustled and was very in tune with our needs and the needs of people at his other tables. My husband ate the beef fajitas and loved them. I had the Salmon salad entree and it was yummy. We also tried the potstickers for an appetizer, ever so tasty. Thanks so much for a great meal and atmosphere. During this time of COVID, it is nice to see a restaurant trying so hard to keep people safe while still enjoying a meal.More

Thanks Lori! Appreciate the great review and glad you enjoyed everything! We are lucky to have the space to spread out our tables, but I think we can all agree we can't wait to get back to "normal". Hope to see you again soon! -...More

Decided to give Longboard cafe a shot after reading reviews. Outdoor dining was important considering CO VID 19. Jacob was our server, he was great, gave me and wife good suggestions on tacos. I decided on Crab BLT taco, cream of crab soup and wife...got a jerk Mahi taco. Topped off with sweet tea our meal was excellent. Now we have found another restaurant in OC MD that we will visit when coming on our annual visit. The menu has so many choices you must come back several times. My wife said see what you started, lolMore

Every year I’ve been to OC, I’ve made a point to eat here. Once again, they absolutely killed it. The cream of crab soup is incredible, and the fish tacos are delicious. And don’t ever forget a big ear of street corn.

This was our favorite restaurant of our trip. We sat outside and my party felt very comfortable with the social distancing and space between the tables. We got the addiction wings and totally get why they were voted best wings several years in a row....I had the fish tacos and my mom had the crab avocado and everything was delicious. Our waiter, I'm pretty sure his name was Matt, made the experience even better. He was super attentive and friendly. We asked him some questions about living in Ocean City and he took the time to chat with us for a bit. I can't speak more highly of this place, and definitely recommend making this a "must go," on your trip to Ocean City.More

We had driven 4 hours and stopped heere for tacos because of the reviews, I had planned on fish but hubby got fajita so I made it 2. Mine was so tough I couldn't chew the meat and his wasn't much better. I know we...should have sent them back. Mine was so dry I asked for taco sauce, they only had something else which didn't help. We ordered a craft beer(expensive) not good, it tasted like sour mash. The service was good and the staff pleasant but we won't go back,More

Hi Bea, so sorry for your experience, we use flank steak for our Steak Fajita tacos and we cook the steak to order, perhaps we overcooked it some and flank tends to tighten up (ie, tougher) when it gets past medium rare. The sauce I'm...More

We visited for lunch. Food was amazing, as well as service and atmosphere! Bathrooms were spotless, only wish toddlers could read the difference between men’s and women’s room when running to go potty - luckily no men were in there when I had to chase...after her - my fault, not the restaurants 🤣. Service was quick but not free up this table kind of quick. This is a must visit location!More

I wasn't sure what to expect from this restaurant but it really was casual and elegant at the same time. It had a definite hi-brow surfer vibe. The burgers were fresh and flavorful and the lunch tacos were great. The french fries were amazing! Plenty...of outdoor seating. The service was a little slow, but overall it was a great experience.More

Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed everything, apologize for slowish service, assuming you all were in over Labor Day weekend we were excessively busy and have been dealing with fewer staff than normal this season due to the pandemic. Hope to see you again soon!

Getting a little sick of some of the local “beach joints”, I craved a nice sit down meal, and Longboard was a perfect solution!! The restaurant is quaint, all of the hostess staff and serving staff were so professional and gracious. They have an amazing...drink menu (my husband and I both enjoyed different martinis), and I’ve got to say, probably one of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever had. The service was fast, and our food was just outstanding. Absolutely put this place on your list, it was the best meal of our vacation!More
