“Superb experiences”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We live here all year round and our only regret about BES is that is closes after the summer season. We would so want to enjoy the uniquely prepared, high quality food served by a friendly, professional wait staff all year. BYOB enhances your enjoyment because you can bring a very special wine to a very special place and not break the bank. The menu features fresh, beautifully prepared food for carnivores, omnivores and vegetarians alike. I am the vegetarian, so I pay zero attention to anything that isn't, so I can only comment on the vegetables, grains and pasta--consistently delectably cooked to perfection (not too soft or hard), vibrantly flavorful and melt-in-your-mouth savory, respectively. Reservations are hard to get; go early, if you have to, but go and bring plenty of cash.

“We LOVE Black Eye Susans & Go EVERY Summer!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We love Black Eyed Susans Cafe. It's a laid back yet elegant restaurant with efficient and friendly staff / owners. The food comes from locally sourced ingredients well seasoned, creative and nicely presented. There's a great raw bar,. My husband and I go every summer for a special night out during our LBI rental time. We look forward to it every year since it opened in 2010. Sometimes it's fun to sit at the bar and watch the staff work their magic. Oh, and it's BYOB - a really nice feature for your budget!

“Simply the best on LBI”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We enjoy everything on LBI from casual family restaurants to more upscale places, and this is hands down, easily, the best restaurant on the Island. BYOB like most places on LBI. A special place. You won't be disappointed.

“Unique on LBI”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Our introduction to this exceptional restaurant in 2012 was fortified with our visit last night, their opening weekend for the 2014 season. Unique preparations with menu descriptions including ingredients previously unknown to this 'foodie' continue to make every visit an experience a pleasant surprise. The kitchen is both creative and imaginative. It doesn't get any better than this.
