My wife and I stopped for a quick bite after a trip from Bordentown. Their claim to fame is New England clam chowder, having won the annual chowderfest contest 8 years in a row. It is by far the best chowder on Long Beach Island. The food is fair, but it is conveniently located and open is all year.

We vacation Ship Bottom each September, and would always participate in Karaoke each Friday and Saturday while there. I agree that the Food is mediocore (at best) and that the Drink Prices are HIGH. However, the Karaoke was the only reason that we would frequent Gateway; certainly NOT for their Food. Happy to read the Jammin Janice is there on Tuesday nights. Hopefully, she will still be there in September during our visit. Last year's Karaoke went a bit downhill whenever Weird AL's replacement(s) were there. The Girl was good; but the Guy who would always say "Here we go" every other sentence, was completely horrible. Good luck Janice. Where else is there that has Karaoke in the area?

After having to deal with the terrible service at Surf City Hotel, we were happy to be greeted by a professional and friendly bartender at the Gateway. Had a blast and there was great music.

We went there late with ten people. The wait staff was awesome and the food was good. There was a performer Matt something, handlebar mustache. Guy is a true talent! Was hilarious and entertaining as hell. Check it out!
