Was pleasantly surprised when we stopped here mid-day for a meal. They were serving fresh swordfish as a specialty. We ordered it blackened, with sides and soup. The swordfish was incredible! Drinks were very reasonably priced, soup was delicious. Was a perfect mid-day meal!

I visit this bar every time I visit LBI - great food (the wings are awesome), nice draft selection, tons of seating, many TVs for games, and friendly staff.
