Glorious Food - Gracious Lodging or a dining experience that is an exercise in the sensuous, the savory and the sweet, look no further than The Gables, a romantic restaurant in Beach Haven, New Jersey. Regardless of whether you choose our exciting, new Grazing Menu, or dine a la carte, candlelight dining at The Gables Inn and Restaurant makes any day a special occasion. Meals are brilliantly orchestrated by our Chef, Richard Diemer. Every dish manages to wow, comfort and excite. Presentations are lovely without being pretentious. Menus change daily; culinary inspiration is drawn from whatever impeccably fresh ingredients are at their best that morning. Produce from local New Jersey farms, micro greens from Blue Moon Acres, Buckingham, Pennsylvania, Niman Ranch organic meats, D’Artagnan organic poultry, fresh diver scallops from Long Beach Island’s surrounding waters, Prince Edward Island mussels, and lobsters exclusively from Maine, take pride of place. We also take pleasure in presenting a selection of award-winning wines from NJ’s Bellview Winery to enhance your enjoyment.
