Dropped by on a Wednesday early, figured no problem getting a table..wrong. But hostess was super nice, ended up at a 2top just outside the door. Excellent lamb chops appetizer , perfect dinner salad with chicken. Even tried a special drink. This was our second...visit this month. Everyone was very pleasant, highly recommend a visit, but make a reservation!More

We were in Ocean City to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and was thrilled to find this great place. The entire staff was extremely friendly and courteous. Our waiter was attentive to our needs and did a fantastic job. The owner was all around talking...and interacting with guests. Everyone was just enjoying themselves. We both had the seafood pasta and highly recommend it. They have a lot of great offerings so we're looking forward to trying something new on our next visit. You will absolutely want to make reservations because while the restaurant is somewhat hidden within a shopping it clearly is a local favorite.More

I was disappointed with my recent visit to one of my favorite restaurants Ocean City has to offer. I was hoping for a pleasant "dining in" experience but I had to settle for carry out instead. The restaurant and bar were filled almost to capacity....I asked for seating upstairs and that area was even more crowded. It didn't appear that any tables were removed for social distancing and almost all of the tables were full. Even the outside dining area which had a plastic covering to protect from weather was almost full to capacity. There were fewer tables there, but the spacing didn't make me feel comfortable. The servers all wore masks but it was just way too crowded. The server told me she would come outside and find me to give me my carry out order, but she didn't. I finally went back in the restaurant to get my food. I left with my carry out order, which was delicious as usual. The quality of the cuisine is marvelous as I expected, but the experience was treacherous. I know the pandemic has hit the food industry hard, but changes will have to be made to keep people safe. I won't return here except to pick up a carry out order.More

Hi Bridget. So sorry if you felt uncomfortable. Our seating in the restaurant is exactly at 75% capacity indoors, which is the current protocol allowed by Governor Hogan for MD. Outdoors, our tables are very very well spaced, on the deck and along the boardwalk....More

We had hoped the reviews here were accurate and they Were! Great food, drinks, service! Please do not run out of avocado, crab, or tuna, that salad made my week! And we especially enjoyed Jacob, our server. I know his boss reads these, so give...him a RAISE!More

My wife and I had a quick getaway to Ocean City, and wanted to try Longboard Cafe based on a recommendation. Being a Monday evening, we assumed that we could just "show up" and be seated - wrong! The restaurant was vibrantly busy (TIP: Make...a reservation!). The hostesses were very friendly, and showed us an area we could wait, and enjoy their Happy Hour specials. I was impressed that they were always mindful of us, even with the large crowd that had reservations. While waiting, the owner came over to greet and engage us in friendly conversation. Once seated, our hostess Anna was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was very, very good - my wife enjoyed her tacos and my burger was one of the best I've had in a long time. All in all, it was great to see such a friendly, happy environment, especially welcome after such a difficult year. You can bet we'll be back the next time we are in Ocean City!More

My mother and I stopped by for lunch today, after viewing great reviews. We were seated and after about five minutes the server came to the table and took our drink order. She returned and dropped off the drink. She never came back after that....We waited and waited. We closed our menus. We looked around and at her to try to get her attention. She was too busy, out in the dining area, looking at her phone, eating and chatting it up with someone else standing there. She went back in the kitchen, came out to the computer and still never came over. The other servers looked busy. But not her. We waited and ended up getting the hostess so I could pay for the drink and we could just leave. I can’t believe how terrible the service was given the reviews. I wish I could tell you who the server was but she didn’t share her name. By the way, we went down the street to Denny’s and had FANTASTIC service and delicious food.More

The chips are a little hard but it was made up through the meal. They have the best seafood pasta with flavor from seafood oozing into the creamy sauce. I've never had better seafood pasta from any other restaurant! Also the server we had who...was named Trisha is amazing! She always checked on us to ensure your meal is amazing. I will definitely return the next time I'm in Ocean City!More

So enjoyed our time here. The food was amazing and our waiter, Kyle, could not have been more attentive! Started with the asparagus and green bean appetizers which were phenomenal. Then had seafood pasta and the surf & turf skewers. Sinfully gobbled up some chocolate...peanut butter bread pudding. Heated patio was beautiful at sunset. Thank you so much!More
