Stopped in for lunch having a desire for some light seafood. When dinning alone I tend to go to the bar to eat. Terrace Tavern and Crab Shack has a long curvy bar that takes up most of the of the restaurants available seating. The waitress was fairly prompt in taking my order and pleasant in discussing the menu. I... More

Good place for families. Typical shore menu, average food. Interesting Happy Hour items. Enjoyed the fried pickles & Rum Runner cocktail. Place gets crowded and very loud. Not a place for a romantic dinner but fun for the happy hour crowd.

basically i thought it was a burger joint, but it is much more with lots of fresh seafood and early bird specials. Lots of families looking for good food with decent pricing. It must be doing something right, its been in business since the 1950's.

This restaurant has an inviting bar with good bartenders. After ordering our drinks inside, we requested a table outside, which we were taken to and we proceeded to enjoy the evening. Our server,...

My friend and I spent many weekends on LBI this summer. Having dinner at the Terrace Tavern was a staple we thoroughly enjoyed splitting a steam pot after an appetizer. Their full and extensive bar left for many options each time we were there. It's not fancy but the food is great and reasonably priced for the beach.
