“Agreed, one of the best restaurants on the island”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Nice meal. Somehow didn't get a waiter to the table until we flagged down the hostess. All apologized and we were given comp desserts. Food was good, but we felt the pork chop was extremely over seasoned, way too strong. Couldn't really taste the pork. Room seemed a bit warm. But still one of the better places on the island to eat.

“one of the best restaurants on Long Beach Island”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Last Saturday evening we had the pleasure of dining at Bisque with a few family members and it was fantastic. The restaurant is a little on the small side but the food and the service were perfect. The blackened rib eye with blue cheese was and still is my favorite item on their menu but we all had different entrees and there were all raves.

“Flexible and tasty menu”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

First time here since they took over the old Voodoo steakhouse location. Interior is on the elegant side. Comfortable, but not stuffy, with nicely set tables. I opted to start with a wedge salad. Not a fan of blue cheese, I was able to substitute another dressing. The lettuce wedge was generous, fresh and dense, and the tomato and applewood bacon gave it a nice flavor. For the main dish, I went with the Shrimp and Scallop Rosa Florentine. Three large shrimp and three medium scallops were mixed in a tomato based cream sauce with spinach and mushrooms. In turn, this was poured over angel hair pasta. I felt the cream sauce was overly thick and the pasta too well done, which was the difference between this being a very good dish and an excellent dish, and being a very heavy dish rather than a lighter dish. The combination of flavors worked really well, though. Our table was served fresh baked Italian bread, with a garlic/EVO that was quite good. Service was very average this night, and I was constantly frustrated seeing my water glass sit empty for long periods.

There is enough variety on this menu to merge a number of different people and well-behaved kids for a good dinner. Expect to shell out a few dollars here. Our party of 4, having entrees and appetizers, approached $200. Its location in Ship Bottom makes it a good mid-island location to meet. It is a BYO, and they are happy to provide a setup to chill your wine bottle(s). We had reservations around 8 p.m., midweek in mid-July, but there was ample seating available had we stopped in without the reservation.

“Best on Beach”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We recently moved to the island year round and eat here almost every week. We fine dine in Philly, and when we travel, so we eat out alot. The food never disappoints. The specials are great, the service is great and Jodi can always fit us in when we call ahead for reservations.

The BYOB is a huge +, we've saved a fortune on fine wine and expensive Champagne.

Overall, just a Great Restaurant. Absolutely a 5/5.

“Best restaurant on LBI!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Bisque is my favorite restaurant on Long Beach Island. Their food is consistently excellent and their staff is superb. Won't go anywhere else for dinner. This place is the best you will get on the island--BYO, great food, and a beautiful atmosphere.
