Our favorite place for New Years Eve! Always a diverse & unexpected menu, fabulous service (love Veronica!) and the little extras add to an already wonderful experience. Sad they are closing for the winter :(
Consistent quality and creativity. Now that we are entering the colder months, much easier to get a table and definitely worth the trip to the Jersey Shore.
Been there off season and during the height of summer always can count on being served good
food,interesting selection, and good and pleasant service.
MIXED REVIEWS - Let me first say the food was very tasty!
BUT .. I didn't realize it was restaurant week. The menu was not the same as what was online, it was very abbreviated. They had a prix fixe menu, 3 courses for $32+/-. The portions were very small I guess due to the prix fixe menu. My appetizer (calamari) was actually more filling than my entrée (boneless short rib). My desert, (apple crisp with vanilla ice cream) was about the size of one scoop of ice cream. The portions were very disappointing to me and my guests. We actually went to a nearby pub afterwards for after dinner drinks and ended up ordering some apps at the bar.
I may try Labrador another time since the food was so tasty but if that is the size of their portions normally, that will be the last time I go there.
ALSO, if you go there in the winter, DO NOT accept a table along the windows. The drafts are terrible! We asked to move our table and they were very accommodating but I felt bad for all the women that were still seated at the windows wearing their coats throughout their dinner. Our interior table was very warm and cozy.
Excellent food with efficient, friendly wait staff. The very only slightly negative comment is that the short rib was excellent but small portion. Other portions for other choices were more substantial.
This is not my first time dining at Labrador lounge. I have dined there many times over the years. This week is restaurant week so it was wonderful to see that they participated in it. The meals we enjoyed for this week all was excellent. The service people were very friendly and gave us good recommendations for our main courses. So don't pass this restaurant up. You won't be disappointed.
I had dined at the Labrador Lounge twice before but as I live in Bayville I avoid the shore restaurants in the summer but on this occasion my daughter who lives in Ortley reminded me that at this time of year restaurants are not as crowded and also this was Restaurant Week along the shore. We decided to go and were delighted with everything - it was all that I remember and more. You have such a varied menu compared to other restaurants in the area. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Been here before but decided to try it for restaurant week. Despite the constraints caused by a price fixed meal, the kitchen turns out a creative and very tasty menu which supplies something that everyone can enjoy. The friendly wait staff is attentive. This BYOB has always delivered. P.S. if you have a dog and sit outside, pets are welcome.
Terrible terrible attitude with the help we did not eat there
Veronica did a fabulous job for my husband’s 50th birthday. The food was wonderful, service on point, even with a large group. This is our favorite restaurant.
Have not been to this restaurant in quite a few years but I will say the food was very good service was pretty good the only complaint that I had is very very noisy
I've been eating at this place since rosali's I'm bay head. The food is always perfect, even the that rice stuff... what's that called again? Oh yeah risotto. I had the scallops with some kind of raisin reduction sauce and polenta, it tasted like fall... even if it was 75 degrees out. Well I'll be back here many times in the future, I hope they consider moving back to the back yard in bay head.
The new fall menu at Labrador Lounge is so good! The staff there is always wonderful.
A great place with an inventive menu and excellent service . I would highly recommend it!
Arrived earlier than our reservation time, but was seated promptly. The menu was the main reason for booking and did not disappoint. Service and food were great. Will return and recommend.
One of my favorite restaurants & love Veronica! She always makes an enjoyable dinner that much better :)
Service was very attentive and the food was very nicely prepared.
Very disappointed in the chopped olive appetizer. Five tiny fried balls that tasted like all breadcrumb for $14. Entrees over-priced for portion size.
We had delicious food and excellent service, very accommodating.
Always a treat -- dine here with family at least once or twice a summer. Never disappoints.
Had a wonderful evening with family. Great food made with love and fresh ingredients as well as a flair for favor.
Eclectic and always creative seasonal menu in this BYOB near the beach. Energetic and friendly wait staff. Flawed by small technical lapses in execution; i.e. bland under-seasoned polenta, soggy calamari overdressed in sauce so not crisp but in the end the taste is there. If you are looking for something different from the standard homogenized menu, then this is an exciting place.
A great experience as usual. Service was very good, meals were great. We had the grouper special which was very good and our boys had the ribs and loved them.
Love the scenery and the food is amazing. BYOB but you won't be disappointed. I promise.
Food and service was good, have had the skirt steak a couple times and it doesn't disappoint. Our server was CARYN and she was lovely. The outside dining ambiance has a lot to be desired however considering the prices
Have been to Labrador Lounge before and enjoyed it very much. Our group was "older" (60+) and we found it to be really noisy (we were inside and I guess that's to be expected for a summertime popular restaurant), however we found it difficult to speak to each other without shouting. Menu is always imaginative and food interestingly prepared and delicious. Service was absolutely fine for a busy night. My only suggestion is that maybe they should add a simple grilled fish to the menu for those who don't want "interesting" dishes and ,again, if you're looking for a quiet place to dine this is not it. Will recommend it and I'm sure I'll go back.
Terrible rude. We were treated like we were an annoyance. We live in the area lavallette nj all year round and will be sure to tell all tourist and anyone we meet to avoid this place !
The food is good and the specials change. But the service was a bit rough...more like a diner. It was nearing end of night so probably tired. Had swordfish which was very good, but really small portion. We dine here a few times during season and few after the summer. The food and service was better in July, so maybe a slightly off night. ceiling is low so noise level inside is usually high. Outside is good, but when you get large groups with kids that like to travel, it can be tough for couple dinning.
Great meal- a little pricey but well worth. Fresh seafood with a creative twist!!! Worth every $
Great intimate Dining right off the beach
Fun inventive summer meal
The food was really good, but definitely overpriced. Our server was blah and didn't check in enough. If you love dining al fresco, you'll enjoy it, but be prepared to open your wallet! Also great that it's byob and sometimes even have live music.
Eclectic menu, we ordered the enchilada, fresh fish, and skirt steak. Everything was delicious. Great dinner option at the Jersey Shore.
Consistently good ! One of our favorites for casual get togethers with family
Never a bad experience
First time there. Waiter was little slow to take our order but was very nice and it was a busy Saturday night. Once ordered the food came quickly and was very good. We would return.
We had a reservation for 6 people and at the last minute had to change it to 8. The Labrador was very nice about the change. Victoria was very attentive to our group and the food was excellent.
Amazing lobster dinner!! The short ribs were exceptional.
Food was great. Service could have been more friendly
Food, service and atmosphere were all good! One of our favorite places to eat!
