“Flounder did not flounder.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The fish was flakey and tasty. Carrots sweet and tender. Roasted potatoes with herbs that did not drown the potato flavor. Service with attractive and friendly young servers. View of water always a plus. Would go again.

“What seaside is all about”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We have been here many times as we own a condo right down the street. The owner/managers are very very nice and hardworking. The service staff are always friendly and try hard. They are all kids, and part of a seaside place like this is accepting that you are not dining at le bernardin. The views are amazing, amazing. The food is always fresh and well-prepared. Prices are very reasonable considering that it's BYOB, which saves the customer a hefty part of the check. As to the comments that there are kids running around: this is a family area, not fair to hold it against the place. Favorites: crab cakes, little clams in wine sauce, but all good.

“Excellent food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

We celebrated my father's 85th birthday at the Boat House for a party of 8 and couldn't have been happier with the menu, food, service, atmosphere and pricing. The beautiful open dining area lifts their garage doors to the outdoors with a fantastic view of the bay.

“One of the prettiest spots on LBI”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

I suspect, if our kids were older, we would skip this place. But it has become one of our 'must-do's' because of the scenery, the dining on the dock, the duckies swimming below.
We have never had any bad food here, but nothing stands out as being memorable either.
It is location, location, location. They do offer a kids menu, which is a plus, and the service has always been very very good.
