A word from Longboards
Longboards Restaurant and Bar is a New England style fresh seafood restaurant, situated on the 500 block of bustling Clematis Street, with a gnarly surfer"s twist! We have an extremely inviting decor with a righteous display of authentic longboards and artists painted surfboards hanging from the walls and ceiling. We even have a beach in the back with beach sand, picnic tables and an antique Airstream trailer. We offer an array of fresh oysters, clams, fresh fish and of course, live Maine lobster. We even have burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and amazing truffle parmesan fries. Not to mention, you must try our ridiculously tasty Lobster mac and cheese. Our Homemade juice infused cocktails and specialty craft draught and bottled beers are our specialty. Make sure to try our Lava Flow punchbowl, bring a friend and be wary of the fire!! We also have a wonderfully broad wine list that fits all palates. Try our house Gnarly Head Cabernet, Chardonnay or Merlot.

    Based upon other reviews we came her for my mothers birthday. The food was just okay - nothing to rave about. Our waitress was a doll but had too many tables and towards the end of our meal apologized for being gone so long. Manager was great and promptly took care of a side dish that was poorly prepared. Bottom line: a cool atmosphere with a friendly caring staff and decent food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/18/2013
    We were traveling with a toddler and an infant, and were looking for a kid-friendly place to eat that was not a chain. Hard to come by. We wanted something special with local food but to eat comfortably and not worry about what the kids would eat or whether they'd be a nuisance. Longboards was perfect. There was plenty of space, plenty of options, yet not too many that there wasn't a specialty. The music was awesome, the food was good, and the service was outstanding. Everyone was really nice about the kids being there and really helpful in our decision making-process. Our waiter was super patient with us and our kids and the bartender went out of her way to help in selecting drinks. I hate TVs in restaurants, but when surfing is on, perfe

    This restaurant was comfortable and the waitress was attentive and nice. The cream of chicken soup with vegetables was very good and the mahi tacos were the best I've ever had. The mahi sandwich and the Fish & chips were also both very good. The wine was affordable. I'd definitely recommend it if you're in the area.

    Excellent dinner menu with nice variety of specials on a Saturday evening. The sides we chose (brussel sprouts w/ bacon & bourbon and cauliflower au gratin) were unique and very tasty. Happy Hour, until 7p, half price drinks and wine was a nice plus. Open and airy feel to dining space with several TV's for event viewing if you like. Thought the taped music level was a little on the loud side, maybe because we were dining early prior to a Kravis Center show and the restaurant wasn't near full yet. Would certainly consider a return visit.

  • BEWARE - $1 oyster happy hour
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 12/27/2012
    The food at this place is amazing, and the vibe is great. Our meal was terrific for the most part..... Unfortunately, our waitress was not very clear about the $1 oysters happy hour - BEWARE, it is only one type of oyster NOT all oysters. When we explained to the waitress that this was not clear to anyone in the party, she became very hostile and the service turned downwards very quickly. To be honest, I would be singing about the restaurant from the top of my lungs if not for that encounter.....it ruined the entire meal and experience.

    Restaurant has been terrific and has been disappointing. Operates with different values on food quantity and service. Place not in harmony. Pleasant interior. Basics broken. The aspects of a quality dinning experience are missing. Slow.

    They didn't open for lunch. We drove all the way there and they had a sign on the door said they open after 5pm. If they are not going to open for lunch, why allow us to make the reseravation. Same thing happened to my co-worker a few weeks ago. He went there on Monday for lunch and they weren't open.

    probably one of the better WPB places for food! It was really unbelivable, the lobster rolls were just like I was back in New England, oysters awesome, everything was great! The ambiance and decor was amazing, just really a great place. The server Jessica was a doll! As was the hostess, there is nothing worse than a hostess with an altitude, as it seems most of them have, but not there. Can’t wait to go back! Really can’t say enough good things about this establishment and believe me, I am picky….

    We selected this restaurant because we were looking for something that offered seafood in a casual environment that wasn't nachos and fried fish sticks. We booked online via open table and when we arrived at first I thought I was at the wrong place because the facade of the local was nestled between a pizza joint and another beer/burger place. If it weren't for the longboard fetched up in the entrance we would have thought the place was closed or moved. Boy were we mistaken, the service was outstanding, the waitress knew her stuff, her recommendations were right on the dot! Try the lobster tacos, to die for! Wine list is short but adequate. The prices were just right! Strongly recommend!

    First time eating here and will be back. Happy hour from 4-7 pm even on the weekends. Drinks half price and a nice list of $5 appetizers. We tried the ribs, chicken wings, and mac n cheese. All were yummy. For dinner we ordered fish sandwich, skirt steak tacos, and prime rib. Again, the food was really good. Definitely a good find.

    They need to hire some wait staff. The place was busy but there was no one to wait on the tables. Recommend if you go sit at the bar, that seems to be the only place that has enough wait staff. Otherwise the food was great and happy hour is well worth it.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Longboards, the place is very cool and different. Located 2 bolcks from CityPlace, in a very quiet street (Clematis) . After 7pm you can park on the street for free. Our server was a fantastic guy and the food was very good. They have Specials for cocktails and beer (Corona Light $2). We definitely go back with freinds and family.

The food was better than expected and the overall feel in the place was great. Props to the hostess that was working. I never saw her stop moving she was always helping someone or getting something for a guest. Will def be back :)

    My parents and I hit up long boards before sunfest one night and it was a great find! We had the sweetest waitress who was very friendly. We sat outside and it was nice seeing people walk by as they went to sunfest. The inside if beautifully decorated with finished wood, surfboards and other beachy stuff. I liked the old surfing videos being played on the TVs. We were also there for happy hour which was two for one and I was tickled pink to see they leave a piece of sea glass as a placeholder for your second drink. The food was yummy too. My father got the fish and chips; I got a bacon cheeseburger and my mom had the pulled pork flatbread which was the highlight of the meal.

    Found the recommendation on Open Table. Was blown away by the service. The staff must pracctice smiling because people cannot be that happy all the time. I searched out the manager and complimented her on her staff, the quality of the food, the presentation, the cost.... I was with a client. All went perfect! Recomend highly.
