This nice place easily accommodated our vacationing family of 12, including 2 small children. Great place for kids, kid's menu, efficient, organized, and fast service. Food is fair at best but none of the dishes served were unacceptable. Wedge of lettuce...very light green lettuce and a small splash of store bought dressing. Sea Bass well prepared but fishy tasting. Short Ribs dry and chewy. Pasta with Chicken tasteless. Not a place for foodies. Valet parking.

Planation is a reliable LBI restaurant where you can get an excellent meal if you keep it simple. Had a graet sea bass this time and the salads and soups are always good. Valet parking and a liveable atmosphere complete the experience.

We come here every year for lunch - we have a very large family and they were able to sit 16 right away. The service was very good, and the food is always tasty. The menu is extensive and all of us were happy with our orders. the interior is not beachy - it is standard higher end pub. But also one of the few places you can have an adult beverage with your meal !!

My wife and I enjoyed a very good meal at Plantations last night. We had a short wait at the bar (we had no reservations), where I enjoyed a Vodka Madras and wife the house red sangria - both drinks excellent.
Once seated we ordered the crispy calamari and mussels in white wine sauce. The mussels were on the small side, but very good and the calamari was fantastic. For entrees we decided on fish (what else?). My wife thoroughly enjoyed her grilled sea bass and I had the tuna, cooked to medium rare perfection. Entree sizes were just right. We passed on dessert and left the restaurant feeling very sated but not stuffed. The dining experience and quality were pleasantly equal to their sister restaurant, Tucker's, which we dined at the evening before. Service is very good, with the drinks and food arriving at a good, but not rushed, pace. Both are very good dining stops in LBI.

We had a party of seven on a Friday night for pleasant dinner. Seated promptly for our 7 PM reservation. Ordered a wide variety from the diverse menu. Everything was cooked correctly and served at a comfortable pace. Our server was attentive yet inconspicuous. $200 before tip for the meal and cocktails. Fun time in a nice casual environment. Try it, you'll like it.
