It’s been a looooong time since I’ve had a meal out, where I’ve loved everything! I ordered the pork chop which was amazingly tender, I can’t say enough! We’ll make it a tradition now every year while in LBI! More...

Great beer selection and environment. Also, fantastic wings. The bartender probably had the most beautiful eyes I’d ever seen so that definitely made it an even better stay. Highly recommend

We were only in Ship Bottom for 3 days, and we are SO glad we saved The Arlington for our last nights dinner. The service was fantastic, extremely friendly staff and the food was absolutely wonderful!! We will be going here every time we come back to Long Beach Island NJ. Thank you!! More...

It is just such a great vibe every time we go there. Also very tasty happy hour snacks that won’t spoil your dinner appetite (except the Mac n cheese with home made bacon...yum , definitely spoils or satiates the appetite), love the ‘newlywed’ bar owners, so friendly and intent on their patrons having a good time!

Food was good. Service was phenomenal! I didn't have any drinks, but those in party that did said they were well-made. Waitress made helpful suggestions for both drinks and food, and the kitchen was able to accommodate a special order for dinner.Get the bacon mac!

We stayed on the island for a night while house hunting in the area. The hotel clerk recommended The Arlington stating they've never heard a complaint. I will continue that trend. Though the menu is not expansive, there was good mix of seafood and land fare. Everything I had, shrimp and grits, oysters, rack of lamb, were perfect. I also sampled and envied my wife's muscle appetizer. My wife was underwhelmed by the vegetable meadly that accompanied her scallops, but the scallops were superb! The well appointed solid wood dining room attracted a lively dinner crowd. Excellent, friendly service completed the evening. More...

The short ribs were tender and delicious. The shrimp and grits were right up my alley, a little spicy and cheesy. Yum!

Always good. We once had a group of 25 on a Sunday morning. Everything was on point. Our server handled everything with ease. The food, drinks and atmosphere are excellent. Would always go back. Good food. No really, good food. More...

The Arlington is a neighborhood restaurant with great consistency. My family and I have enjoyed numerous meals here, and in general the food has been delicious; some entrees could use some extra veggies but other than that they have a great selection + awesome cocktails More...

Lobster mac and cheese is bomb. Great selection of local beers and other more well known ones. An LBI hot spot for all.


Bill Rick

Have been going here pretty regularly over the past year and each time have come away always totally impressed. Prefer sitting at the bar because you can’t get better service than what you get from bartenders James, Chris and Alyssa. They are always extremely pleasant and more than accommodating. Drinks are always “on the mark”; food filling and delicious; live music, when they have it, adds to the experience. Great happy hour selections, too. Oysters have become a favorite with a taste that proves their freshness. Tried the pizza for the first time and loved their toppings. Well worth the stop when on LBI. More...

Incredible, simply incredible. We spent a week off season in Ship Bottom, and we were able to walk over The Arlington. Upon arriving, we also spotted several people parking their bikes in the bike racks outside provided by the restaurant. Stepping inside was like stepping into another world. From the whimsical wall paper to the beautiful bare brick walls every seat was filled with a smiling face and surrounded by live music playing from the bar. The atmosphere was everything I imagined it would be plus more, and everyone working was super friendly. I ordered the Pimm's PT. 2 which was perfectly crafted, and may be my new favourite cocktail. We were all happy to see the craft beer selection, too. For dinner, I enjoyed the best pan seared salmon I've had in a long time, and the turmeric glaze that came with my partner's pork chop was to die for. We will surely be back and will recommend this place to everyone. Props to The Arlington. More...

Best selection of craft beer in the area with a wide variety of styles and breweries. The list is always changing so follow them on social media if you want to know what's current.

Great place for Brunch or Dinner. They have a great selection of craft beer that changes on a regular basis allowing you to taste different types of amazing beer. The food is very good and consistent, but I would like them to change the menu, since I've already had all of their dishes (twice). More...

I was doing a "hit and run" ,, one beer and go. But as I relaxed, enjoying the atmosphere of The Arlington, I realized I MUST make this a standard stop. Conversing with the best bartender ever, Sue, I found a person with extraordinary customer service skills. It wasn't crowded on a Tuesday afternoon, and she explained the REALLY nice draft list and happy hour to me. She also , without me asking, offered a taste of a beer I was inquiring. I had a second beer. Lol. Definitely be back. Definitely make this a must go place. Definitely a 5 Star. More...

Karen Elliott-Ricotta

We stopped in on Thursday night, last night for dinner. Party of 4. I had crab cakes, husband had steak, son had pork chops, his girlfriend had duck. We had an appetizer, bread, ricotta cheese with other ingredients (I forget). Everything was perfect. Dessert, we all had the apple tartin. Perfect. The cocktails were great. The staff, attentive, friendly but not hovering. I highly recommend. I'm going back next week with girlfriends for lunch and looking forward to it. More...

This place is awesome. My family and I go out for a “fancy dinner” one night every year on our vacation. We chose the Arlington last night. Our waitress was so sweet. (Wish I could remember her name!) Well, right after we put our order in the power went out on the entire island. The room started to get a little stuffy and we weren’t exactly sure what was going to happen. The woman who was clearly the GM explained the situation to everyone, that the kitchen was no longer able to cook and they were very sorry but dinner service would be ending for the evening. Some guests chose to leave but the kitchen staff finished our big dinner for 8 in the dark! Yes, it was warm in there. But the food was FANTASTIC, the staff was super accommodating, and now we have a great story to tell about our family dinner during the power outage. Give this place a chance! The food was amazing! (I went with the vegan noodle bowl and most people at my table got short ribs and pork chops). There wasn’t a crumb left when we were done! 5 stars! More...

Our baby shower was held at The Arlington this past Sunday. My husband and I along with the hostesses of the event are thoroughly impressed and extremely pleased with everything! The event was seamless, food was excellent, drinks well prepared (or so I was told!), and wait staff extremely attentive and accommodating! We all felt so cared for and will definitely be returning to dine and would love to have another event there in the future! Thank you to everyone at The Arlington who made our special day even more beautiful than we could have imagined! More...

Had my daughters wedding at The Arlington two weeks ago. The wedding was nothing short of perfection. It was decorated for Christmas and was gorgeous! The rustic feel of the interior combined with the decorations made it casual yet elegant. They were married in front of the fireplace. The food and the servers couldn’t have been better and Paul is the most gracious host. Try The Arlington for your wedding. You won’t be disappointed. More...

First timer, and the short ribs, mac n cheese, and bread pudding were absolutely delicious! Great service by Kathy. Headed to the bar after dinner, and Chris whipped up an amazing cocktail when I couldn't decide what I wanted (aside from something not too sweet and based with vodka.) Hands down the best cocktail I've ever had! The other bar guests were so friendly, my friend and I spent the whole night talking to whoever pulled up a stool next to us. Truly delicious food and drinks, and an awesome atmosphere! Will be back for sure! More...


Carrie Muller Wainwright

Yummy food last night and great service. Sue, the waitress in the bar, handled a ton of people (Chowderfest) and we never wanted for anything. And I'm REALLY picky about service. Loved the shrimp and grits, hangar steak and rigatoni. Not so much the pancetta pork belly which should have been rendered more. But psyched to come back and try more of their innovative cuisine!

Chuck Langman

4 September 2017

Excellent well done food. I can't believe no one thought of fried chicken skin as a side before. It should be on the appetizer menu. The lamb ribs were not what I expected but were full of flavor and delicious. The duck breast was good but not great. The chocolate banana bread pudding was awesome. Service was excellent and our server was great. Very pleased overall! More...

Service was excellent, very nice cheery waitress sorry forgot her name, explained everything on menu we asked about. My wife started with the steam clams that were to die for chunks of house made bacon and the broth with the homemade bred kicked ass!! And she had a lobster roll. I haven't a bacon double cheese burger (one of the best I've ever had) but the kicker was I had the fried chicken skins that had a spicy maple syrup dipping sauce at the bottom, OUTRAGEOUS!!! And we split a desert which was a salted Carmel Italian pudding with fresh whipped cream!! On the way out I gave the hostess a one word review: WOW!! We Will be back!! More...

I was taken to The Arlington for my birthday dinner. It was my first time there. The food was very good, but the portion size was very small, yet the cost was very expensive, and the service, in my belief, was not great. When I left, I was still hungry. � More...

Nice mix of millennials and baby boomers. Great conversation had with new friends discussing world travel, yachting, land acquisition for Nature Preservation, and the study of foreign languages. I had several items for dinner starting with 1/2 dozen raw oysters from LBI, small but tasty. Followed by shrimp, andouille sausage and grits, small portion size but delicious and finally an order of there blackened wings which were surprisingly outstanding. Extensive micro brew selection as well as more modest priced offerings (I had the $3 Modello Mexican beers). Nice brick wall, heavy wood and comfortable environment. This evening two young men played a nice music set of jack Johnson, Led Zepellin and other baby boomer friendly songs.Modestly upscale, with friendly and attentive service. Many locals in attendance. Easy 100 yard walk to the beach afterwards if you are so inclined. More...

Peter Murray

21 January 2016

I've been going to the Jersey shore for 30+ years and came to think that shore restaurants are what they are... Vacation food. This place breaks the norm. It takes a lot to make me want to go back to a restaurant (since variety is so abundant now a days), but this place is AWESOME. Great drinks, even better beer selection and last but not least a amazingly talented kitchen. If you're in LBI or within 300 miles you need to check this place out. More...


Vita Torbz

Love this place. My husband had the swordfish and I had the short ribs. Best I've ever had. Paired with the bacon Mac and cheese and the blood orange sorbet for dessert.... Insanity for my tastebuds. Bummed that I only make it down here once a year but will continue coming back. More...

Ash Feith

Best craft beer environment in the area with a wide and varying selection, and the happy hour is a must. The bartenders are charming, well-versed in their offerings, and great at recommendations. Everything we've tried on the menu has been delicious, although the portions can be on the smaller side. However, the exposed brick, candlelit tables, rustically nautical theme, and close proximity to the bridge make the overall experience wonderful and worthy of a weekly visit. More...
