Our group of 7 was seated right away on a Monday night and lucked out right by the water.....though everyone here gets an ocean view. But the restaurant is part of the Sea Shell resort and there's a swimming pool with swimmers right next to you......and yes, the seagulls who fly right overhead. But despite that the food was good.... More

We stayed in the hotel nearby and it was the only restaurant nearby. The place looked closed from the outside but was actually open. Few seats were taken but the restaurant was fully staffed. Proably 3-4 waiters per table which did not manage to coordinate well and forgot things. The food was average, The chicken even a bit dry but... More

Truth be told, we chose this place for the view (not too many places on LBI with oceanfront dining). The black and blue tuna ap was excellent. The calamari was so-so (hands down Harvey cedars shellfish has the best calamari on or off the island). My 9 yr old daughter loved the grilled cheese and my husband enjoyed his crab... More

So my husband and I get all dressed up for a night just the two of us at this restaurant. We had been there before with a whole bunch family several years ago, and thought it fit the bill of being a bit more upscale for our night out. We were seated right away (Wednesday evening) out on the covered... More

Went to the shell for some fun. We spent 350 on apps before tip. Went to leave with the kids to drop them off to come back and were informed we would have to pay cover. That is not customer service and they dont care. Have hone for 10th years will NEVER be back.

I have been spending summers on LBI my entire life (39 years)...just last year, I found this restaurant! I knew about the hotel, just not the restaurant...anyway, my husband and I love this place. Oceanfront dining practically on the beach. Food is always good! We recently had the prime rib and it was so tender...french onion soup is pretty tasty,... More

The outdoor pool/bar area can become very crowded during the music performances, but does provide some good entertainment !

Everything we ordered was wonderful and the service was great. We went the night after the 4th of July and were able to be seated fairly quickly and had great service.

Went with a group of 7 friends on a Wed pm. They were not busy and we were seated right away. The hostess and waitress were great. This area is a very large tiki hut with views of the beach and ocean. They renovated since Super Storm Sandy and had all new tables and chairs, that were very comfortable and... More

The Shell's new martini and wine bar, located inside their main restaurant, is a must see. The entire area is beautifully decorated - from the whiskey barrel high top tables, granite bar, rattan sofas and beautiful finishes. The specialty drink menu was inventive - I especially enjoyed the use of fresh ingredients, from herbs to vegetables. Each cocktail was more... More
