“Great Experience”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Our group of 4 visited BES on a Saturday in late July to give them a try.
We were seated on time and found the staff to be very nice and provide spot on service the entire meal.Everyone in the group enjoyed a small plate an entrée and found room for a fantastic dessert. Each person in our group raved about the quality of every item brought to our table with comments of "to die for" and "the best I have tasted" in between bites of this fantastic food. Find room for the desserts as they are stunning and not to be missed. The owners found time to come by our table to say hello and to make sure our dining experience was going well which we thought was a nice touch on a busy Saturday seating. Reservations are
pretty much a no brainer if you expect to dine at this fine dining BYOB establishment. Just a note this is a cash only business. We thought the prices were in line for such high quality food with ample portions on each plate. Put this place on your "to do list' while in the area we were glad we did. We look forward to another visit. Thanks to everyone for a fantastic meal.

“top notch service”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

My husband, sister-in-law and I had a(nother) wonderful meal at BES. They are prompt to greet and seat you at the time of your reservation. The owner and staff and friendly without being too much so. And the menu is interesting and seasonal. I chose to have two appetizers, a green bean and roasted peach salad that was even better than it sounded and foie gras, a personal favorite. So I had room for dessert, a sundae with chocolate sauce and popcorn, again yummy.

“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.

The owners and staff are fantastic. Quality of food is best on LBI. Don't mind spending the money for a wonderful evening. Keep up the good work.

“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!
