Excellent dinner menu with great service. The Ossobuco ravioli was handmade and absolutely delicious! My wife's lobster ravioli was equally good. The fresh motz prosciutto appetizer also a must try. Great restaurant for Italian/seafood. Kid friendly.

Combine excellent service, creative menus and perfectly prepared dishes and you've got a winner. I've dined at Carmen's over the years and have never been disappointed. Its a delightful atmosphere conducive to good conversation. Don't vacation on LBI and miss a great culinary opportunity!

Sorry, don't know for sure. I'd suggest giving them a call. My guess is they will be open at least on weekends until after Chowderfest.
