Labrador Lounge, now in Normandy Beach, was born in Belmar when being busy meant the wait staff only got one surf break and walking your dog on the beach did not result in a monetary fine. Today, the Normandy Beach restaurant serves up Marilyn Schlossbach's popular vacation-inspired cuisine. Whether you order a Lobster Dynamite sushi roll, baby back ribs, or Marion's crab cakes, each dish is served with effortless style that is complemented by warm ocean breezes and the summer salt air.

Some selections from "Pop's Garage" if you know of the place (same owners) and most important BYOB! Simply a great place to... read more

My wife and went here and look forward to returning. Even though we had a reservation there was no wait and were seated immediately. The service was excellent, the food perfect and the most important item in the menu , dessert was excellent. I could write more details about this and that and yes, that would be more illustrative .... More

We were lucky to be there for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week and experience Labrador's Fall Menu and special menu for the week. We are always pleased with the taste, quality, and menu at Labrador, and the new items on this week's menu were amazing! Everything was great, but a couple of my favorites were the House Made Pumpkin Ravioli tossed... More

My husband waited for the summer crowd to go home to try this place. We made a reservation for Friday night. We were greeting fine, but when we were waited on it was like the wait staff had to work and it was very obvious. Not very attentive and didn't ask if we needed anything during our meal. My husband... More

Great place in Normandy Beach. I would recommend reservations just in case you want to eat outside in Summer (good weather). Eclectic food with a pretty good Sushi menu. Some selections from "Pop's Garage" if you know of the place (same owners) and most important BYOB! Simply a great place to eat and relaxing atmosphere.

We stumbled upon this side of the road gem while taking an evening beach road drive. There is both outside and indoor dinning, we dinned outside. The exterior space could use updating and a good cleaning but the food was incredibly fresh and unique with a Caribbean flair. Cerviche was outstanding, 'Pops' grilled corn on the cob popped with flavor,... More

Labrador has been a great spot for many years here at the Jersey Shore, with lots of great entrees' and fresh fish selections daily, but now they have added some fantastic sushi dishes to their menu. There is a side bar at the actual sushi window where you can watch the chef's preparing your fresh sushi choices. Elliot was our... More

BYOB is always a plus. Specials included sea scallops with a blueberry glaze and appropriate veggies. Terrific! She had an avocado appetizer also terrific. And we split a great salad and an astonishing rice pudding for dessert. Highly recommend every dish. Only downside were noisy neighbors; just the luck of the draw and manageable. We ate indoors which would otherwise... More

We had a great family dinner at LL. The nine of us loved our meals. Service was a good pace, considering the place was packed. We had a reservation. Thank goodness... Our waitress was busy tonight, but was on top of serving our table. We started with a few appetizers. We had the calamari and monkey bread. Calamari was ok.... More
