I wish I lived closer! This was our first time here but won't be our last. The food was creative, delightful, and the most interesting combinations of ingredients made our taste buds dance. The scallops were prepared to perfection, the mushroom ravioli was large, and delicate with a tomato-gouda cream sauce that rendered me speechless. Butternut Squash soup and New England Clam chowder were both fabulous. Mushroom risotto was to die for, and the rolls were incredible. A light dill and rosemary flavor to one of the rolls brought an amazing appeal to what is normally mundane. Desserts were heavenly. We loved everything especially our server Amy. She provided great direction, and professional service with a smile!

Plantation restaurant is a
Plantation restaurant is a nice place for that special holiday meal.
It is quiet with a warm and relaxing atmosphere.
The menu is quite limited, mostly seafood entrees but the food is exceptional, well prepared with a touch of the unusual.
I would highly recommend it.

The service was very good; prompt and attentive. From the salads to the burgers to the wraps, everything wash freshly made and the tastes were equally pleasing. Presentation of food and attention to detail was a nice added touch. The wine and beer list provided something for everyone. Overall, a very nice dining experience for a Saturday lunch.

I read many of the Open Table reviews for Plantation Restaurant and most of them said the food was good but the place was very noisy with the bar scene. I then saw one review that said there was a quiet room. I made the reservation, asking to be seated in the "quiet room". When we arrived the main room was full of Happy Hour people, so loud we couldn't talk with each other. We then went upstairs to a beautiful dining area where there were only two other couples. We enjoyed our wonderful filet mignon and crabcakes, had a relaxing and enjoyable dinner. Our waiter, Tom, was knowledgeable and attentive. We certainly will go back to Plantation and will ask for the "quiet room" again.

Very nice, good food, good drinks, good service. A bit pricy for my pocket.

Amazing food as always
This is my favorite restaurant on the island (I even had my wedding reception here). Food and drinks are always delicious. It would be awesome if the Sesame Calamari appetizer special became a regular menu item!

One of the best times ever
From the minute we walked in my group and I were having a blast. We started with happy hour which had great drink specials (I recommend the mojito). The bartender was friendly and had us laughing the whole time. Then we sat for dinner and our waitress was awesome. She was very knowledgable about the menu and even recommended here favorites. Once our food came we were not disappointed. It was outstanding!!! I even took some home to enjoy the next day. If you are in Harvey Cedars or heck just near LBI check this place out.

Everything was excellent
Varied menu with something for everyone. Fish is super fresh. Pork chops are huge, and so delicious. Chocolate lava cake is a must. The only time I would not recommend this restaurant is if you are dieting!

I WOULD SEE MAJOR BENEFITS FROM HAVING A SOUND PROOFING SEPARATION BETWEEN THE BAR AREA AND THE DINING AREA OR NOT HAVING HAPPY HOURS OVERLAP THE DINING HOURS. YOU NEED TO DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE, A BAR OR A RESTAURANT WITH A BAR TO SERVE DINING PATRONS. BECAUSE YOU DO NOT DEPEND ON A REGULAR DINING CROWD, YOU WILL PROBABLY DO WELL AS YOU CURRENTLY SERVE CUSTOMERS. YOUR REGULARS SEEM TO BE THE BAR CROWD, THEREFORE, YOU HAVE A LONG HAPPY HOUR FOR THEIR CONVENIENCE.

We go here 2 or 3 times a summer. The food is always excellent. It is a little pricey for a casual dinner, but we are on vacation when we go, so we don't mind so much. Only complaint is that it is always noisy, sometimes to the point of it being difficult to hear each other.

Table on second floor was directly next to a doorway used by waitstaff and patrons. It was busy and loud. However, the food was exceptional. The calamari appetizer was a delight and the main courses we had were outstanding. This was my third time to this restaurant in the past two years and the food has been some of the best I have had.

The Plantation is one of many fine restaurants on Long Beach Island, NJ. It is located in the borough of Harvey Cedars. Caribbean flair. Food never disappoints. There are clearly-marked gluten-free items on their menu and it's a nice selection. Really great wait staff.

Our family gathered for dinner and all enjoyed the menu, sangria and most of all the food that was served hot to our table....service was excellent even with a full house..would definitely recommend to others...a little pricey but worth it.

Great place. We visit at least
Great place. We visit at least six times during the summer. Love the idea that the restaurant is open in the Fall!

I have been dining at this restaurant for years and I have never had a disappointing experience. Ambiance is great especially in the cooler weather when the beautiful fireplace is lit. Great desserts, good service and excellent food. I keep coming back!

A little expensive for what you get
We dine here during vacation each year, and have enjoyed the food and service, but this year, the comparison of cost to product received is questionable. The New England clam chowder is always great, and we were not disappointed this time either. The bacon wrapped scallops were also good. While my pork chop meal was well prepared and flavorful, but my wife's mash potatos were cold and bland (even though her ribeye steak was well prepared). The dessert of rasberry cobbler was cold and doughy, and was a disappointment to end the meal. The service was very good. My complaint is that the meal was quite expensive ($150 +) in comparison to what was received (and we visit all of the big restaurants on the island during our stay).
