My wife and I just returned from a long weekend at the newly renovated Gables Restaurant & Inn. In short, it was a FANTASTIC experience that we hope to repeat soon. I've visited Long Beach Island several times a year for the past decade and can honestly say that the Gables not only offers the nicest acommodations I've seen on the Island (comfortable beds, gorgeous Victorian decor--each room with its own distinct character and charm, remote controlled fire place, flat panel TV with DVD player, marble bath and jacuzzi tub!), but the best FOOD as well.
The Inn staff was courteous and helpful. The room was spotless. If it weren't for the very friendly staff and some of the NJ accents, I might have forgotten we were on LBI and not in Europe. The Inn is a block from one of the nicest beaches on the East Coast and there a bunch of neat shops nearby. My wife especially liked the chocolate shop next door.
We ate all our meals at the Gables' restaurant, which was a good thing. Everything tasted great. The service was superb, without seeming stuffy.
If you plan to visit LBI, at the very least, pop your head into The Gables for a quick look. The owners and staff have done an amazing job of renovating this historic inn.
