We ate at Plantation recently with a large group, and the restaurant staff did a nice job accommodating all of our varied needs. The attraction here is a well stocked bar with an adequate wine list. The food is ok with oversized portions.
Really, a fine place to dine while on LBI.

Went to Plantation last Saturday night with 2 other couples and 2 teens - 8 of us in all. Made a reservation the day before (highly reccomended). Were seated within minutes of our arrival, lovely table by the window upstairs. Waiter was great (...i want to say matt? tall, young, very sweet kid), service was great, food was amazing. The tomato bisque? Omigod, you could make a meal of that alone. Soooo good. My husband and another of our party had the root beer pork chop, said it was fantastic. Everything was great, prices were no more outrageous than anywhere else on the island. I think with apps, entrees, drinks, desserts and coffee it came to about $50 a person with tip. Not bad for a great meal and nice atmosphere.

Nice atmosphere, great soups, bisque and side dishes. A little overpriced but a classier atmosphere.

I asked a local on the beach to recommend a good seafood restaurant on LBI, an he told us about Plantation, but said it was "pricy." When we couldn't get into Black Eyed Susan's (the one place it seems you need reservations), we headed across the street to Plantation.

For starters, I had the shrimp cocktail, and my husband had the chowder. We were not crazy about them, but they were good. For the main, we shared an order of scallops and an order crab cakes. Both were delicious. My kids shared an order of Penne and a Pizza - they both liked their meal.

When we received the bill we were pleasantly surprised. Given we paid about the same amount at Ship Bottom Shellfish (where we were horribly disappointed), and Harvey Cedar's (just a little less enjoyable than Plantation), we left feeling content. Both for our meal, and for the value. Not sure I would go back again, but I would recommend it from the bunch on LBI.

We had a wonderful meal. The soft shells and crab cakes ranked with the best we have ever had. Our two year old grandsons loved the pizza and the staff was terrific.
