We have eaten lunch at the Long Island Cafe several times on past visits to Isle of Palms, but never dinner. We were looking for someplace new to try as some of our favorites have either fallen out of favor or weren't there any more. We visited on a Saturday night with reservations, and were pleasantly surprised. We each had... More

Reservations would help, but we two were seated with an hour and a half time limit...but that worked well for us. The food was delicious, and service excellent, and a bit upscale and probably not really comfortable for children. We will go back again if we return to IOP. The location is an easy walk from Ocean Blvd. and in... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night. With so many options in this area it turned out to the best meal yet! The waitress was very friendly, the food great and the service very responsive. We would give it 5 stars!

We visited Long Island Cafe in late October. We made a reservation and hurried over, but there was no need for a reservation this time of year. The restaurant is conveniently located in the shopping center with the Harris Teeter Grocery store. The food and service was good.

You would never guess that right beside Harris Teeter is a wonderful restaurant with some of the best seafood I have ever had! We never miss eating at Long Island Cafe whenever we visit IOP. Their Pan Fried Flounder is one of our favorites but their fried shrimp and oysters are fantastic. Lightly battered and so tender. I recently tried... More

This was one of the better meals that we have had recently. My husband had the Nantucket tuna with grits which he said was excellent and a very generous serving. I had the flounder with a creamy dill sauce with vegetables and it was also excellent. The wait staff was attentive and met our every need. We will definitely go... More

I've worked on the Island for 9 years and have never tried this place before. A coworker and I decided to try them out today for lunch and I won't be back. I ordered a well done cheeseburger. There was about 4 other occupied tables while we were there but everyone else including some who arrived after us were served... More

I am truly sorry that it took 30 minutes to get your burger to you. While well done burgers do take longer than anything else to cook, 30 minutes is too long. I spoke with the kitchen and they said that no second burger was used. They returned yours to the grill to bring up the temperature. As far as... More
