This a little jewel in the heart of Beach Haven. I am not a big fan of Long Beach Island, BUT The Gables is VERY different from the "family madness" occurring on the rest of the Island. We stayed in the Victoria and Albert Suite....More

Fabulous meal and service in the gardens. Best restaurant on LBI with eclectic menu that offers specialty dishes and bring your own wine or order in.

If you want something specific, then, yes, bring your own. They sell wines, but from just one vineyard. Your choice would be extremely limited.

Glorious Food - Gracious Lodging

or a dining experience that is an exercise in the sensuous, the savory and the sweet, look no further than The Gables, a romantic restaurant in Beach Haven, New Jersey. Regardless of whether you choose our exciting, new Grazing Menu, or dine a la carte, candlelight dining at The Gables Inn and Restaurant makes any day a special occasion.

Meals are brilliantly orchestrated by our Chef, Richard Diemer. Every dish manages to wow, comfort and excite. Presentations are lovely without being pretentious.

Menus change daily; culinary inspiration is drawn from whatever impeccably fresh ingredients are at their best that morning. Produce from local New Jersey farms, micro greens from Blue Moon Acres, Buckingham, Pennsylvania, Niman Ranch organic meats, D’Artagnan organic poultry, fresh diver scallops from Long Beach Island’s surrounding waters, Prince Edward Island mussels, and lobsters exclusively from Maine, take pride of place. We also take pleasure in presenting a selection of award-winning wines from NJ’s Bellview Winery to enhance your enjoyment.
