My husband and I were staying on LBI and saw this place and decided to try it. The best item we had was the Crab Bisque soup. It was so delicious and served with sherry. We each had a steampot which was delicious, except that my crab legs had a funny taste. I don't know if it was a type of crab I have not had before or if there was an issue, but it made me not want to eat it, and I love crab. Otherwise everything else was really good. The waitress was not super nice, but not completely rude either. This is a small place with a bar and it is pretty loud, and we were there during off-season. I am sure it is crazy in there later in the summer.

With my $4 Hop Devil draft in hand I had the peel ur own shrimp, and also the raw oysters. Both great! Later came back for the lobster special which was well worth it. Would definitely return.

I prefer to eat at the bar when dining alone and had a lovely time here. I ordered the 1.5 steamed lobster special for $19.99 and it was excellent. And $10 for a generous glass of Santa Margherita was a deal.

What a great bar and restaurant. Went their last evening and had great service, great food and excellent drinks. Nicely redone after Sandy, the whole place has a beachy, summery feel about it. Staff was really great, from the hostess to the incredible waitress to the attentive busboys. All made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Food was heavy on the seafood side but all of our meals were great. Next time we try the Lobster Rolls, we watched some get served to the table next to us and they looked incredible. Can't say enough good about the place. Highly recommended. It just became our new favorite casual restaurant and bar on LBI.
