We always loved Yellow Fin, and we ddid love Plantation when it first opened. Daddy-O is good but not always consistent, but we had great service there last Friday.
The Arlington is a welcome addition! Great, fresh food and pleasant service.

Our friends (who work and live on LBI) recommended The Arlington for our double date. We are glad they did! The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful with the menus. We enjoyed our appetizers (ceviche, scallops, burrata) and loved our entrees (swordfish, shortribs), especially the shortribs... rich sauce with the crunch of shredded cabbages made for great combo/texture.

The inventive cocktails were tasty and the wine list was acceptable.

We toured the bar area after leaving the dining room and vowed to return there for a fun night for either drinks or dinner at the bar.

Highly recommended for a solid dining experience away from the crush of typical LBI eats of hour-wait lines for fried, bland food at some of the other popular spots. Another bonus: you can make reservations on Open Table!

We enjoyed this resturaunt very much. Service was very attentive and knowledgeble of the food prep and made great recommendations. Nice change to the usual "shore restaurant" fare - some traditional items but prepared with unusal tastes flare. Definitely a more "daring" take on the old standards, but not enough to be over the top. Very flavorful and good use of ingredients. Would most certainly recommend.

My husband and I have eaten here quite a few times, both at the bar for light snacks and at a table for a full meal. They have interesting, (quite strong) cocktails and a great craft beer list. We have brought friends here and they always end up returning on their own. Best soft pretzel I have had (and I have tried them everywhere)

There were a few menu items I didn't care for (like the crispy chicken skins) but I think this is a personal thing. Service has always been good.

If you are going for dinner, go elsewhere. Service is terrible, the menu limited, and the food barely passable. It is a noisy bar scene and that seems to be the focus.
