Excellent food and service, but portions are modest, local wines by the bottle were very good. Pretty much adults only which is a treat on LBI. Will definitely be back.

We had an amazing dinner experience at The Gables during our beach vacation in Beach Haven. The ambiance is truly unique and relaxing. The outdoor patio has a very romantic touch but appears to be reserved for tables of two only. We sat inside which was also very beautiful. The waitress was extremely attentive and did an awesome job explaining the menu. Service was excellent. Management cares about every customer’s experience.
Our plates looked exquisite, were of a very decent size and every single dish was great. Because the menu is fixed, it takes decision making out but still gives you plenty of options. Duck was very tender, steak was superb, scallops and risotto were very tasty. Every dish was made with passion, no doubt. The best dinner our family had in LBI!

Gavin provided wonderful service and recommendations, as it was our first visit. Not only was this the best meal we’ve had on the Island, it was one of the best meals we’ve had anywhere. It is expensive, but worth the money particularly for a special occasion.

This is a special place to celebrate special occasions. It is truly beautiful and well run. The food is a feast for the eyes and palate. I followed the advice of our server and ordered the Raviolo al Uovo and it was delicious but a bit heavy for me as a starter. Next time I'll try a lighter app. My halibut entree and my husband's seafood risotto were both outstanding. Two things to bear in mind; it is a BYOB (although they have some wine selections) and allow ample time to find parking. I will definitely visit again!

Food and Service were fantastic as usual. My only small complaint was that the tables in the garden are way to close together. The staff can't get through in many places and I was always having to move or scoot out the way.

First, I am culinary trained and worked line as sous chef through school…I have hardest time dining out…that said, The Gables is one of my favorite dining experiences. Front of house staff friendly and attentive. All the host staff cordial and helpful. The food is always perfectly seasoned, I laugh when they ask if I want fresh cracked pepper…the back of house staff have it seasoned perfectly when it comes out,

I have been eating there for few years and I have never been disappointed. I was there last night, had the seafood risotto and it was perfect, had a bit of a succotash vibe going minus tomato. My GF had the pork chop and it was quite literally one of the best entrees v ever eaten/shared lol.

The lemon posset was jaw dropping. Truly wonderful, light and absolutely delicious. If you’re on LBI, it’s a must do. The ambiance and food are perfect.

Beautiful venue! Price went up substantially since last year and no change in menu selection or portion size. Good quality food prepared with unique and delicious culinary expertise. Portions were small though, and we left still hungry. One suggestion- bread should be cut up and served in a bowl rather than placing a bag on the table for guests to deal with. Also did not care for of the desserts and we tried them all as we were a group of 5.

The dining highlight on LBI. After a week of local dining it feels wonderful to go out for one beautiful meal sitting amongst stunning plants in this incredible Victorian Inn. Now the food- exquisite! I started with scallop ceviche followed by halibut and ending in a brilliant desert. I drool at the memory.

This was for a special occasion and we splurged quite a bit. The menu was three courses-a starter, an entree, and a dessert. We were unaware that you could bring your own wine. We did buy a bottle of rose for $27. It would have been preferable to buy wine by the glass. The food was very good, the service attentive, and setting very pleasant.

Everything was fantastic. From the welcome to Jane’s incredible service. I had the Ravioli al Uovo with an Egg yoke with the spinach ricotta. It was fantastic. I also had the Pork Chop with Sweet potato wedges and Shishito Peppers in an apricot sauce. My wife had the Cucumber Gazpacho and seafood risotto. Over the top. If you forget your wine like we did, you are able to get great tasting wine from Belleville. We had the Cab Franc and it was excellent. Well done all.

The Gables is a perfect spot for a special dinner. The setting is beautiful reminiscent of a Victorian house. The open air porch surrounded by flowers and greenery is my first choice when the weather permits. The three course tasting offers several options in fine dining. The service was excellent and the atmosphere quiet.
