We stopped in for breakfast on the day we arrived. The service was excellent and our meals were ready quickly. The eggs were cooked perfectly for both of our meals.

Open air dining on LBI is not that common. Blue Water may have been the first to offer it. Being across from a beach/yacht club adds to I am at the beach feeling.

I saw children - the way you do in high brow restaurants. If I had my niece with me (she's 7) I'd sit outside so she could feel more relaxed. Inside is intimate. There are better places to bring children - here's where you... More
