Ebb's Coastal Kitchen
Based on our dinner experience tonight, I don't understand any negative reviews. Danielle our waitress is a gem. She made helpful suggestions, took our order promptly, brought our food promptly and was a very cheerful pleasant person. As for the food, we had zero complaints about quality, quantity or prices. We shared the pot of mussels as an appetizer. The garlic wine sauce was delicious, especially when you dip the included garlic bread in it and the portion could have easily been shared by 3 or 4 people. My spouse really enjoyed the rigatoni and stuffed meatballs that Danielle recommended and I had an excellent cob salad with roasted salmon that was cooked perfectly. Neither of us could finish our entrees and Danielle graciously offered us to pack up to go boxes. We will definitely return, perhaps to sit outside at lunch too.
Very casual, good service. Fish tacos and crispy chicken sandwich was awesome. Good sized portions. Easy with kids. Had outdoor seating. Works for lunch or dinner.
Ebb's was a very nice spot with a small, but varied menu. Our server was knowledgable, friendly and exceptionally sweet. The food was hot and delicious and the view was great. Would highly recommend to visit for lunch, dinner or a drink at the bar if you are in the area.
Just about ignored by our server. Had to flag her down several times.
Nice menu creative and Gluten Free options. Our server was outstanding. A revised for sure.
This place has a prize location with gorgeous views of the water. We found the food to be fine but not exceptional, and the service in particular did not justify the price in our opinion. It seems they are brand new and figuring out that will work.
Service was horrible!
Food was extremely fair!
Would not recommend it!
Food was very good. Service not so much. Was served our main dishes without the sides we ordered and had to eventually hunt them down. Our server never came back to fill up our water glasses or check to see how we were enjoying the meal. Brought our check without asking if we wanted dessert. Hopefully they will address this as the food was delicious!
This was the first time I dined in Long Branch and Ebb’s did not disappoint. We were greeted and seated immediately. When I received my food, the meatballs were undercooked. As soon as I told the waitress, she apologized profusely and took it back. The manager and the other server offered me a complimentary glass of wine and guacamole while I waited. Additionally, they took the meal off the bill. When the food came, it was delicious. I have to say, the way the staff handled the situation was exceptional and professional. I would recommend Ebb’s not only for the food and ambiance, but exceptional customer service. Thank you for putting your diners first, I will be back!
We ate outside with a view of the ocean and enjoyed it thoroughly. Great hostess and wait staff added to our enjoyment. The food was good and I think it was Priced Right for the ambiance. I'm not sure if the experience would have been quite as good if we had dined inside which was very nice but looked a bit more like an upscale Diner.
Ordered appetizers and dinner. Waited a very long time and then dinners came out. Forgot about our appetizers. Everyone seemed very confused and not very apologetic.
Food was great. Service was rough.
The food wasn’t bad just not good. There was nothing special about meal.much better options . Hopefully they figure it out
Love this place. 2nd time here. Great food, great oceanview seating and great drinks! I recommend outdoor seating. We’ll be back...
We enjoyed our meal at Ebb’s. The skirt steak was tender and perfectly cooked. The service was great. We will definitely return when we are in Long Branch again,
Delightful menu, delightful service, delightful ambience with quite tasty and nicely presented meals.
The food was not seasoned well. The calamari and sushi was the only items we enjoyed. The interior or the restaurant had a fowl smell. The service was extremely slow from waiting for a hostess to trying to get the check. The neighboring restaurants music was extremely loud when sitting outside. Won’t be back
The food was not good. The burgers were small and burnt. The salads were not as described in menu. The service was horrible. After waiting about 30 minutes to be waited on when we finally ordered the server said “ Sit back and relax because I don’t know when you will get your food “ What???
I would highly recommend Ebb's to anyone. There's indoor and outdoor seating, right on the boardwalk. Food is delicious, drinks are perfect. I'll be back.
Great location ! All was perfect. Service a little slow at times but overall great have been three times already! Will definitely go back!
The Smash Burger and Mac and Cheese were delicious!
July 4th was the fourth time we have eaten at Ebbs since it opened. This time was a little disappointed with our table. I made a reservation through Open Table and requested outdoor seating. I was told it was first come first served. I feel reservations should be honored.
Beautiful restaurant. Excellent food. Beverage glasses were inconsistent.ordered ice tea. It was served in small glasses. The server had to refill several times. Spoiled the meal as the glasses were too short. Every time you wanted something to drink, the glass was empty. The hotel uses the restrooms from the adjacent wave hotel’s lobby. They were not maintained.
Service was awful. They better get their act together or they will not last. It took out waitress 4 different trips to the table to clean it.
We loved it! Our server was great. The drinks were amazing and the food was fresh and light- perfect summer dinner location!
Food and service were very good. It didn't hurt that it was a beautiful evening sitting outside. The drinks could be a bit larger for the price but the key lime pie was awesome.
The restaurant has been open for a week, the waitress made a mistake while taking our order and brought someone in our party the wrong dish. However this was remedied immediately. The staff was friendly and the bar was stocked with quality liquors and a great beer selection. The management was very well organized and professional. This restaurant, located adjacent to one of the newer hotels in Long Branch, is going to do very well. The menu has great variety and the food was very well prepared. Will definitely be back again.
We enjoyed a great meal here. The food was great and the service (Malachi was THE MAN!!) was even better. It is definitely casual, and the ambiance a little sterile, but they will develop a personality in time I suppose.
Note: Google maps took us to the wrong address. The Restaurant is just south of Pier Village.
I think this restaurant has potential but at this early stage it seems like there are still a few bugs to work out. We were seated promptly and the service was great and very courteous. The taste of the food and the timing of service however needs a bit of work! For an appetizer we ordered fried calamari and oysters. The oysters were delicious but the calamari was so salty (and we’re a salt lovin’ group!) that we actually commented on it to our waiter. He mentioned that many people during the day had also complained about the same thing (not quite sure why it stayed on the menu or the issue was not somehow addressed though!). They did take the calamari order off of our bill which was nice. There were two young children in our party. One had his dinner served pretty soon after we ordered while the other waited about an hour along with the rest of us to receive an order of chicken fingers. I should mention that the restaurant was about 3/4 empty. The tuna burger I was served was delicious and I heard from the rest of my group that the food was OK- not terrific, not bad. I think this place has potential but I won’t try it again for at least a few months while they work out some of these issues that made our dining experience less pleasant.
Excellent food & service! If you like seafood this is a great location. The ingredients are super fresh . Had a wonderful waiter by the name of Malachi.
A terrific al fresco dinner right on the beachfront Boardwalk.. Definitely recommend the calamari and also the fish tacos and the Pier Spritzers are to die for!
