When it first opened we loved this place, but the past few years it had gone down hill, both in quality of food and service. This time, however, the food was much better and the service was improved. They also sat us where we requested.

We were here last summer and had a decent experience. We decided to try it again. When we first pulled up to valet, we were told that valet is full and we couldn't park there. When we asked where we could park, the attendant walked away. I called the front desk and was given attitude when I politely asked why we should park. Fortunately, we had a lovely server, but we were seated in a room that had loud and drunk guests. Not very enjoyable. Appetizers were amazing , but entries so-so. The restaurant does the business bc it's on Open Table and one of the few restaurants with a bar license.

The bar is fun and the atmosphere is very island like (Caribbean). The food is fresh but I never feel wowed by the experience. I feel the restaurant is a bit over priced similar to their sister restaurant Daddy'os.

We come back to LBI each year and find ourselves at Plantation at least one night. One of the plusses is that it has a bar...not often found at many Island restaurants. They used to have a vegetarian menu which may have been blown away with the hurricane! Since three of us are not meat or shellfish eaters, the menu was limited. The service was lovely,but the salmon was overcooked. Not that we were so surprised, there are other places we go to for better food, but we still like the convenience and neighborhoodness of Plantation.

Went to Plantation for our last night on the island. What a joy. We had our first visit last year with a large party and this time it was just myself, my husband and son. We sat downstairs and it was very nice. The waitress was a joy and the food was teriffic. My son and I both had a pasta special that was teriffic. Asiago cheese tortellini with chicken, shrimp and crab - so good. My husband has a veal tenderloin special with a lobster hollandaise and he doesn't even like seafood! The wings were the best treat we had though, so tasty, definitely give them a try. We'll for sure be back again next year, it's one of our favorites!
