Strolled in here while staying in Long Beach Island to grab lunch with my wife and two kids. It sits within the village shops near the Water and Amusement Park nestled within the shops at the end. The menu is loaded with all sorts of choices from sandwiches to dinners to Sushi?? Very strange to have a Sushi bar inside a sandwich place or what looked like one.

Settled on a few sandwiches and drinks which added up to over $40 for three?? Outrageous plus the food was pretty bad. The Reuben Sandwich was mushy and hard at the same time and tasted terrible. I could not even finish it was so bad. The fries were overcooked and the cole slaw was warm and nasty. The grill cheese my son had looked disgusting. Plus the wait time for all of this was forever and the service was slow and annoying. The outside tables were falling apart and about to tip over and the lawn chairs were cheap and tacky. In all this place needs to upgrade or shut its doors since it claims it is family owned and has been there a while, but ditch the Sushi and start putting money into your main menu and maybe you will gain repeat customers. The funny thing is they have a Tripadvisor sitcker on the front door!

More expensive and the food was just alright. I should have just stayed home and grilled a burger myself. The sushi on the other hand, was a bit better.

The Gazebo was my family's favorite restaurant down LBI. After a long day at the beach we walked right in and enjoyed great seafood in our bathing suits. The casual nature of the restaurant is perfect for a relaxing day down the shore. And the food was great too!

Sandy's flood surge couldn't even touch this quintessential Beach Haven eatery. My family has been going to the Gazebo restaurant for every one of its 25+ years. From kids' meals to cheesesteaks to sushi to decadent surf and turf prepared by the owner/four-star chef, you will love this place. The quality and integrity of the food speaks for itself, and the owners make you feel at home in this family oriented environment tailored for anyone; they can literally make anything you want! Your vacation to LBI is not complete without having visited the Gazebo, you will not be disappointed!

This place has a wonderful view of the bay which makes it an ideal place to watch the sunset. Their Service is what will keep me coming back. I have eaten here a few times trying something new each time, I was very pleased with both the service and the quality of their food.
