This is a small and nicely appointed restaurant. It is only cash so a party of 4 should expect to spend close to $400, bring a little more just in case! Now the price is worth every penny and then some. Reservations a must but a walk in is possible, if you are lucky. Not open year round. Since their... More

We tried to get a reservation in August when we were in LBI but there was nothing available at all for the days we were visiting. Our friends suggested that we wait until the summer crowds were gone and we could try again in the fall. Well we finally made it and it was worth the wait. The décor is... More

I was fortunate to have dinner at "Black Eyed Susans" ("BES") again over Columbus Day weekend. This has become a bit of an annual ritual for me for four years now. On this occasion, I enjoyed a wonderful, home-brewed Ginger Beer, Baked Figs over salad, pan-roasted Tile Fish with roasted corn, spaghetti squash deliciously accented with Moroccan spice, and finished...

Don't show up with a credit card. They aren't accepted. Cash only. And this is a fairly expensive restaurant, but it is divine. For example, the crab cakes (two on a plate with some potatoes) are $39. Compare that to other restaurants on the island where they're only about $22 to $26. BUT...they are the best I can ever remember... More

Good service, good menu, good place!!! It's a very nice restaurant with "touché" and the ambiance makes you feel in a restaurant of a big city. The servers and chef are helpful and nice. Try gnocchi with lobster, cheesecake, octopus, etc everything is delicious!!!

We had the pleasure to dine with friends at Black Eyed Susans on Tuesday Night. What an unbelievable treat. The menu was unique. The service was excellent. The food was a treat. The Rack of Lamb was the best I have ever had. My wife had wonderful scallops. The taste of the food was outstanding. Cooked to perfection.

We were on LBI for an extended vacation this August and sampled a wide variety of restaurants from north end to south. Out of all of them, there was none better than Black Eyed Susan's. This was our first visit and we're sure to make it a regular from now on. My only complaint is, it's fairly hard to get... More

Service was very fluid and knowledgeable even if we didnt taste the many ingredients mentioned in the dishes. Sourdough bread was very fresh and worth the $5 for house churned butter. We ordered the scallops, only four on the plate , vegetable base was average, scallops were cooked perfectly. We also ordered the tuna special, decent size tuna steak ,... More

While vacationing in LBI, Black Eyed Susan's was highly recommended for dinner. We were impressed! The food, service, and ambience were wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed the Gnocchi & lobster appetizer, as well as the tuna tartare. Our entrees of tile fish and lamb rack with lamb belly were fantastic. We look forward to our next visit!
