They have the best chowder, Manhattan or New England. While I much prefer the Manhattan. Do not miss this if on the Island. The pizza is exceptional too, and open relatively late for a quick pie. I don't eat in, always get and go with a outside pick-up window for convenience.

We got over $100 worth of take out and were really happy with everything we got. The subs and apps were really good and the servings were large for the price. We did get 3 quarts of New England clam chowder. Although it was very tasty and really thick, there were not many clams in it. Would expect more clams... More

Stopped in for carry out dinner for the family. Chicken parmigiana sandwich my husband seemed to enjoy. Large enough to split with his dad. Eggplant parm sandwich was tasty, as well, although I prefer a bit more garlic. New England clam chowder has won awards, and they are very well deserved. It's delicious, very thick and creamy, and very filling!... More

Hands down the best white clam chowder on the island is here. But the rest of the offerings are average. Had a Philly cheesesteak that was overlook. Salads were bland. Stick to what works here. Great Chowder

We hit the California Grill every summer, without a doubt. It's easily my favorite place on the island, fantastic food and atmosphere. The food is all fairly priced and you can sit inside, outside or grab it to go. The chowder is awesome (and has won the annual LBI Chowderfest multiple times for both red and white), but my favorite... More

Always a favorite! Pizza is very good! Very casual and "beachy" . Like many places on LBI they do not serve alcohol but the norm is to bring your own bottle of wine, etc.

Fish tacos are fresh and well prepared. Service was great and the staff is very friendly. Busy for lunch - workers on the island are there, (good sign, like truckers at a diner). Worth a quick stop.

The pizza there is amazing. The set up is kind of small so you wind up sitting right into place of the person next to you. It is a grate place to get or order take out.

We love this place! Wait staff, always pleasant and remember you each time. We frequent California Grill throughout the year. Love the grilled chicken sandwiches and wraps. Food comes out quick and is piping hot. Fries always crunchy! Only have had slices of pizza but it's delicious!
