This is a great restaurants, the food was delicious. We were a family of 7 and everyone chose something different and everyone was very happy with their meal. The service was great and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Just a block or 2 away from LBI beaches.

We had dinner at buckalews while in LBI last week and it was delicious. I had the crab dip and chicken pot pie, bf had the fish and chips, friends had lobster roll- all on point! Atmosphere is nice inside then you'd expect from outside view. Really pretty with open ceilings. Had live music and cheery atmosphere. Great night!

My family of 10, including 3 children under age 5, ate dinner here. They were able to accomodate us within 30 minutes, which is great for most places along the Blvd. Food was very good, service was okay. Clean place, would go back.

Took my 2 nephews to pirate night....its more like parents behaving badly. The kids were running all over the place and the parents just kept drinking. Since the kids were all running and yelling who is going to complain...the pirate running the show kept asking the kids for tips, if they did not have one, get one from ur mother.... More

Our service was great and fast. Food was really good. Prices are a bit high- but to be expected at the beach. Family friendly!

Thank Candygirl1220
