Had a great dinner here, enjoyed our appetizers too. Service was great. No complaints. Parking is valet, but we parked across the street after passing by it and going around the block. It is BYOB.

Finally went here for dinner after driving by it oh, 3000 times. Went on the recommendation of the owner of another restaurant on the island, who told me it was his favorite place. Didn't disappoint. Great food, nice atmosphere, excellent service. Will be going back.

Been coming here for years. Every summer it has been a tradition at the shore. Food is great, people are great. Everything here is great. Keep up the great work and can't wait to come back next summer.

Second visit and even better than our first. This may be our favorite LBI dinner spot. Simple but elegant, varied special menu choices, presentation and preparations perfect. The staff is so knowledgeable and friendly too. Love it.
