It has been several years since we stopped in at the restaurant. They had a sign out front that said the old cook was now back. We tried it but were disappointed. Prices were high and the new England clam chowder was just ok.

Best chowder on LBI, outstanding pizza, cheerful staff. Our go-to stop for lunch and snacks. Prices are fair and plenty of parking.

We had a family of 8, half the meals came out then the other 4 had to wait. All the adult food came out cold, and the service was terrible. Avoid at all costs.
