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!

Stopped by for a business lunch meeting. Nice atmosphere and could tell it was a favorite with the locals. Ordered the Cuban Panini which was delicious. Would definitely eat here again.

California Grill has solid, predictable American fare. A highlight is that they make Stefano's Chowders since they have the same owners. You can't beat Stefano's New England Clam Chowder. Good burgers and tacos. The pizza is OK too.

Went for lunch, in December so it was not very crowded. Waitress was very pleasant and friendly. Our lunch came fast and well prepared. Atmosphere is very beachy. Very nice place to have a good meal.

Have been going here for many years for the pizza, subs and soups, Always good and highly reliable... Heck I've even fogiven them for the plastic wrap found in my cheese steak from a few years ago. That I went back is a testament to food... not great, but very good for what it is...

Famous for their chowder, California Pizza Grill also has amazing salads, sandwiches, and pizza. It's perfect for families with kids. The service is fast, the food is great, and the atmosphere is fun. You can also get take-out. We come here every summer!

Great clam chowder. Very accommodating for large group. We always eat here a couple of times during our weeks on the island.
