“Tropical Atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The outdoor tiki bar and restaurant has a great atmosphere for summer fun. There was live music by the pool and the ocean is only a few steps away! I ordered the sesame tuna sandwich and it was very tasty. The young adults were enjoying drinks by the tiki bar and families were enjoying the food and beach area.

“Awesome pool area”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

Awesome area by the pool where you can get tanked while your kids swim. I don't have any kids, but I'd imagine that's what you could do if you did and wanted to. I've always liked their burgers though.

“Great place for light food poolside great tiki hut outdoor bar w live music!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013 via mobile

Granted the indoor restaurant is dated ( however Sandy damage has yielded a much needed make over) I'm interested to see this place for summer 2013! That being said the outdoor tiki bar is An awesome place for lunch, happy hour, drinks and live bands!! It's a fav of my entire circle of family and friends. Even the kids love this place( they can swim in the pool while the adults are relaxing w cocktails and eating 2 ft away) you don't even have to be staying in the hotel.
The food is fresh and always great , mahi sandwich, grilled chicken wraps, burgers and curly fries! Drinks are tropical, frozen, and bartenders here are great! They even had palm trees on the beach and dozens of lounge chairs in the sand if you want to lay out! This place is a great getaway for the day, feels like your on a "real vacation" if you don't live close enough and want to stay, hotel rooms are basic, pricey ( but that's LBl) but clean!

“Great location and good food”
Reviewed 3 February 2013 via mobile

I really hope they are re-built as the owner is a great guy and the food, atmosphere and location was not to be beat. You need to understand that this is a local institution for many years

We are not there for the bar/beach scene (but one of the best on the island), but we do go for the food. What is interesting, is you might not expect the gourmet food you can get (sure, you can get much lighter stuff outside or inside) from this restaurant.

Crab legs, lobster, broiled fish, steak - you name it, they have it. They also do a nice salad for the table, and of course bread, desserts and all the trimmings. There is also an extensive bar drinks list to enjoy with dinner

I look forward to a great meal in the Summer of 2013!

“Worked for our diverse group”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

3 adults in our group wanted seafood, 3 other adults don't like seafood; we wanted something a little upscale but needed to also include a toddler and 2 babies. (As it was pouring rain, we couldn't do an outside location). The Sea Shell Restuarant met all our criteria! Menu was varied enough, atmosphere was nice, food was good and service was great.
