The atmosphere and decor at the Arlington are great. Great menu options which include a vegetarian option, and I was told a bar menu will be offered shortly. Interesting cocktails and a great craft beer selection rounded out the experience.

Great new addition
It's nice to have another good place on LBI for dinner. Nicely upscale. Loads of beers and a nice wine list. And the food is delicious. It just opened so give everyone a little latitude but try it. The old Bayberry Inn never looked like this.

Awesome place, very good beer on tap, nothing cheap all craft brews. Food is good.

Great food ... Fabulous drinks...
The menu is excellent and the service is very good! Noise level was a bit much they should do something about that!

This was my second visit to The Arlington. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table immediately. However, the service was not as good as the first time we went one week earlier. Although the waiter introduced himself to us pretty quickly, we waited at least 15 minutes before being able to order drinks. There was too much time between courses and not all diners received their meals at the same time. The food is good, the menu is varied. The beer selection is outstanding. It's nice to be able to get flights since there are so many wonderful choices. A vegan dessert option (since there are other vegan options on the menu) would be a welcome addition.
We will most certainly be back and hope that time/experience

The Arlington is a step up from its predecessor, the stodgy Bayberry Inn. The craft beer list was excellent and the food was tasty. Portions were adequate but the sides were a bit small. The waiter was very attentive and provided excellent service. It was a little pricey but we plan to return.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went with a party of 6. Service was really good. Everyone enjoyed the meal and thought they got great value for the money. We will keep coming back. One suggestion: please add another vegan or vegetarian option.

Arlington in Ship Bottom, NJ
I visited the Arlington twice last weekend. The Friday night bar scene with entertainment was lots of fun; and the beer selection is great! I will be back soon. On Saturday we had dinner. Our waiter Jordan was excellent. All of our food was above average. The appetizers were over the top, especially the cerviche with watermelon salsa. The entrees were very good, but a bit overpriced.

Better than the Bayberry
The Arlington's menu is very limited but everything on it is made to order and very good. it's very loud inside the restaurant so might not be a great first date spot but definitely great for a group of friends or family (not very kid friendly). They also have a good selection of craft beers that would be otherwise hard to find on the island. It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for so it's definitely worth giving it a shot for a nice evening out.

Great wine list! Perfect spot
Great wine list! Perfect spot for a group to get together.

Great beer list!
My husband and I had a great dinner here. We went back a few days later for lunch. We sat at the bar and had some great beers and sandwiches!
I hope they do well.

The craft beer selection was
The craft beer selection was great! Great menu variety and the food was delicious. The bacon mac n cheese is a must have. No kids menu, but there were enough options to ensure the kids were happy.

Great craft beer menu, numerous beers from around the world on top, with a heavy concentration of American micro brew.
Very surprising and inventive appetizer and salad combinations. Grilled peach salad was excellent. Dinner was organic New York Strip, which was very good, but could have been a thicker steak or larger portion.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, small portion
Party of 8, a bit too noisy for one end of the table to hear the other! The food was delicious, not one person complained about their choice. Sadly we just wished it was a bigger portion. The corn chowder and Mac and cheese were fabulous. The pork chop was the best we have ever had and the Korean short ribs melted in your mouth. Extensive beer list. Be prepared to spend more than your LBI norm!

Saturday night dinner
We loved the beer flights, had great food, just noisy atmosphere. Too open so everything echos. Loved the place will definitely go back for more. Best burger in LBI and great short ribs.

Good but pricey food-getting better
Our 2nd visit this summer. The food was much better - one dish was tepid (RI would not like it). Service (Joanne) was attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is diverse for an upscale restaurant trying to appeal to regulars, shoobies, kids and weekenders. However, some plates are sparsely populated with food priced at NYC white linen levels. What really appeals to us is the BYO policy.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food but dark ambience
The food was amazing. Extensive beer menu and interesting drinks like a mojito with blackberries and lime.
The calamari was delicious with a marinara and red pepper sauce. Loved the scallop on lobster truffle grits. Perfectly cooked single sea scallop! Portion was perfect for an appetizer.
My family loved the pork chops and I had the paella, all cooked perfectly. The strip steak was good. We loved the chocolate and peanut butter bombe!
All in all you get a great meal for the money. It is quite pricey. The interior is very dark and puritanical. I'd mix the old barn woods with a very modern fireplace and tables, wheat grass to brighten. The interior was extremely clean!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was good!
The Arlington had a great wine list and cocktail list. The food was excellent, however portions were very small. We were there for an early dinner, it was SO loud, and there were LOTS of screaming children. I would like to go back for a late dinner to see if it was any quieter... The bar looked packed and there were tables in there as well if you wanted to grab a bite. Will definitely return!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here was delicious. Many slections on the menu. Great beer selections. Definitely worth it
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sixth visit this summer
Keep coming back for the food, the service and the ambiance. My only suggestion is to add a few more vegan/vegetarian options to your menu.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is small, but good, all fresh food, nothing frozen, but you pay for it. (Entrees are $25 & up) the beer menu is bigger than the food menu, anyone into craft beers will love it. The restaurant is very spacious, but VERY loud!

Went with four people, every
Went with four people, every appetizer and entree was loved.
The chocolate cake for dessert didnt taste of anything. Left most of it on the plate.
I would definitely go back if im in that area again.

This was my third time dining at the Arlington. The food has been consistently excellent as well as the service.The noise level is uncomfortable and I would like to see a few round tables for larger parties. We were 7 and at a rectangular table it was nearly impossible to hold a conversation or hear what was being said at the far ends of the table.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
All around excellent experience
The Arlington has made some changes to their menu, and added some great selections. Four of us had appetizers, main courses and dessert and everything was fantastic. This was a 100% improvement from our visit in July when just about everything went wrong. They are a new restaurant and I am so happy they got their stuff together. I'm not sure if there have been changes in the kitchen since the opening, but this visit was the best one yet.

Five long time friends had a great experience. Definitely will recommend.

Great Food Standout Beer & Drinks
3 couples enjoyed fantastic dinner at The Arlington! Creative & interesting menu, fantastic craft beer list and great cocktails paired with knowledgeable & attentive (not in your face annoying) service made for a wonderful dining experience. We'll be back next time in LBI for sure!

Fresh Fish Feast !
The Arlington is a welcome addition to the LBI dining scene.
Farm to table does not do enough to describe it, as it is also
"Boat to Table", with fresh fish and seafood coming to the
Restaurant from Barnegat Light daily.
If they have it , order the Striped Bass ~ you will Not be disappointed !
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
great addition to lbi
Had dinner at the Arlington this past weekend. Food was excellent. I had the short ribs while my husband went with the
pork chop. Both were delicious. Also had appetizers which were also excellent. We also went to the bar for a pre-dinner
drink . They had a large selection of craft beers for my husband to chhose from and the bartender was knowledgeable about them while they also carried a nice prosecco for me to enjoy. Will definitely be going back!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, great wait staff, and gourmet beers on tap! Our first beer on tap from Israel, for example, plus very interesting dinners and side dishes.

A breath of fresh air!
The food was exceptionally good! It is truly a find on LBI!

We always enjoy the Arlington - the drinks are original, the wine list is varied and the food is delicious.

An LBI Gem
We were delighted to find such a gem of a restaurant on LBI. I had the trio of duck with confit of duck, sliced duck breast and duck fois gras blended with grits. It was AMAZING! My husband had the striped bass and it tasted like it was just caught. The beer list is the real highlight of this restaurant. They have about 25 beers available on the list and you can order a flight for $12. You can pick whatever 4 beers you want. My husband loved it. I had wine and the selection was very good. Thank you for a wonderful meal and we will definately be back.

LBI has a great new restaurant!
We've been coming to LBI for nearly 20 years. This year, in addition to all of our faves, we decided to give The Arlington, a new restaurant in Shipbottom, a shot this trip.
We really liked The Arlington.
Our waitress was amazing and I'm devastated that I don't remember her name because I'd love to give her the compliment.
The Corn Chowder as our appetizer which was delicious. Very different than most corn chowders I've ever had. It came out fast, it
was hot and yummy!
Entree's, my son had the steak which was cooked perfectly. I had the Swordfish which was also done perfectly and my husband had the Short Ribs which were really wonderful.
If you are a beer lover, you'll love the beer menu.
Prices were reasonable too.
Well B Back

Outstanding food, excellent service
We ate at Arlington to celebrate the 8th anniversary of our first date. The ambience inside the restaurant is cozy and dim, perfect for conversation and long dinners. Our server, Jordan, was fantastic. He was exceptionally helpful in assisting with my gluten free dietary needs (there are several wonderful options for gluten free dining) and he was friendly and easily answered all our questions about the menu and very nice craft beer list. The lobster bisque and beet salad were fantastic. Our entrees of Tuna Steak and Viking Village Scallops were one of the best meals we have had to date. I highly recommend this establishment and hope to return on our next visit to LBI.
