Long Island Cafe is the restaurant that we frequent on our first night at the beach. Wait staff are quick, efficient, and excellent. The menu is always wonderful: fish, shrimp, salads, etc. I always get the small She-Crab soup with sherry. Best in the world! Anything you order will be amazing. The table next to us ordered a chocolate dessert... More

My husband and I had reservations which seemed necessary since the place was packed during our entire meal. We started with great seasonal cocktails which were dangerously tasty. I was also impressed with the wine selection as well. The menu seems to change with availability of fish and produce and therefore isn't extensive (which is my preference to do a... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior as the inside of the restaurant is beautiful. Staff are friendly, service is good and the restaurant is geared well for kids - crayons and good kids menu. The food was a little disappointing but we had two starters each versus a main so maybe didn't get the full experience. This restaurant is rated... More

The restaurant is in a strip mall with very little store frontage. The food is awfully good and the pricing is rather low for what you get. I had the fried shrimp and they were not greasy.It comes with 2 sides. My wife had shrimp stuffed with crab meat. Both dishes really tasted well. I also had for starters a... More
