Average price is $24.00 and worth every dollar. The night we dined was 5 star weather. We were two couples and every table around us had children. Thankfully the open air setting gave us our privacy and ability to isolate us from the crowd. I ordered the swordfish special that was cooked to perfection. Most frown when I order fish... More

The food at this establishment was pretty decent. I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken as I do not eat seafood. My wife loves seafood, which is why she chose this place. She had the Sunset Pasta. She also enjoyed her dish. View of the water is great. Service was decent. The only downside is that this place is loud, I mean... More

Immediately upon arriving, the server provided us with a large bucket of ice to place our beer/wine. The menus came right away, and we ordered crab nachos and calamari, both of which came immediately and were deliciously cooked. Each of us 6 adults had an incredible meal and we plan on returning again and again. Treat yourself to the Tuna... More

We came with a large group with advanced reservations. The food here is the best I have found so far in LBI. Fresh and cooked just right. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. Service was good. Great view of the docks right on the water. Easy to get to from surrounding motels and beaches. We walked/biked to get there,... More

The food is above average, the view of the bay and boats is nice, and the service is great. Pricey for everything, especially appetizers. But we've gone twice and will go again. Best to go when they open, they are always crowded.

We come here at least once each summer - usually when we have company because they are located right on the bay which offers a nice atmosphere. The food is average, nothing outstanding. It's a bit pricey considering the size of the portions. Everything is ala carte. We all had a fish entree which came with potato. When one person... More

We have visited this restaurant several times over the last many years with a series of different owners. The location is excellent with Great bay views. The food is not. It is always busy, probably filled with first time diners, since there is no reason to return. The food is always disappointing, the service good. If they could only make... More

We are repeat customers who always make it a point to dine here early in our week long stay on lbi to take advantage of the beautiful sunsets. The food has never blown us away but it's not bad. However this years experience was horrible on many fronts. We had 6:00 reservations and were quickly seated at a table by... More

We really enjoyed the Boat House. We had the crab and guacamole for appetizer which was delicious. Then for dinner I had the trio of fish which was excellent and my husband had the halibut which was also very good. The service was excellent. Our waitress went above and beyond. Highly recommend and will definitely be coming back.
