One of my favorites on LBI. Been going there for years. Great burgers, pizza and fantastic shecrab soup! Lots of beers on tap and really good musicians playing. Top notch fun place!

Title says it all, if your nearby, it’s a good bet. If you’re on the mainland, don’t make the trip. Good solid bar food, fancier stuff, and in my opinion, better wings than the Chegg.

We expected "pub food," but instead had the best meal of the week at Beach Haven. My daughters shared a four pound lobster, perfectly prepared and my Tuna sliders were amazing. The drinks are plentiful and the wait staff fun and engaging. Great job!

Visited with 8 people and were seated quickly with great service! Huge menu with lots of variety including sushi. Crab cake sandwich was excellent & enjoyed a fun drink called “Beach Please”! It’s a very large restaurant conveniently located on the main island road.
