It was a very nice night out with my husband. The food was delicious! We both enjoyed everything from appetizer to dessert. Definitely recommend to friends and family.
Food was very enjoyable. Waitress had goo sense of humor and gave very good service.
2nd time there this month and both times were memorable (in a good way).
Great food. Warm atmosphere. Friendly service. We will definitely be back!
Got together with some friends for lunch. Food amazing and sevice was outstanding! Plan to come here regularly with this group!
Our meal was very good. Unfortunately, our waitress was super busy and not always attentive. It took 15 minutes for her to bring me my drink after it was prepared, we had to ask for our water glasses to be refilled and one of our appetizers was served with (not before) our entrees, contrary to our expressed wishes.
Excellent service. Good meal. We had a great date night! Very consistent. Thank you!
Food and service was great
New Years Eve dinner at 5:45 and there were several young families so noise was to be expected. The food and service was impeccable.
I’m sure it’s a tough nite for servers but the Plantation gets gets an A+ all around!
Though the food was good the bill didn’t match it. Our service was excellent. The feel of the restaurant lacked in ambiance. The lights were super bright, not conducive to any sort of romantic dinner. The decor seemed a bit mishmosh. Loved the wallpaper.
Really good food; a pretty place with good service
Unbelievably bad. We were surprised we could get in so easily on a weekend night during the Kite Festival. Other notable restaurants were packed. In fact, there were only 2 other tables of diners at 8pm. The food was mixed at best, and horrible at worst. . Two in our party ordered caesar salad w/ chicken. The portions were very small. We also ordered lobster bisque and clam chowder. The soup was just ok...not a great deal of flavor and no discernible clams or lobster, just a thick purée. The “local” tuna was the worst I’ve ever had, although I have to admit I didn’t taste it. It was two thin slices and when I cut into it to check to see if it was cooked medium rare, I saw this strange brown color that was so unappetizing I sent it back. The well intentioned server said the chef explained its the “hemoglobin in the fish that turns it that color when the fish is cooked from frozen.” Seriously? The restaurant is a couple of miles from the docks where the local catch comes in. The server said of course it would be taken off the bill but didn’t offer another entree. So I asked for a menu and ordered crab cakes that were served uneven in temperature. By this time, others in my party had finished their meals. The manager never came over to check to see if everything was ok,
This is a very popular restaurant in season. Maybe they had an off night. We won’t be back,
Always look forward to the New England Clam Chowder. The meals were prepared nicely and were delicious (Thai steak and noodles / NY Strip). Topped it off with their wonderful bread pudding w/ice cream .. warm and tasty.
Our regular stopover when we come on the island each year. Never disappointed!
The restaurant is nice and has a nice ambiance. The food was OK as I expected a better dish for price. The service was good and I had no complaints about the service.
We love the Plantation House. It’s our favorite spot especially off-season. Food is fabulous and wait staff is friendly. We usually visit once a week. Great spot for just a burger or a fancy meal. Great board toO!
Food and service was terrific. They offered a great selection for meat lovers, seafood lovers and vegetarians.
The din created in the back dining room by the bar is loud. While I highly recommend the food, the downstairs dining room would not be my recommendation for a quiet or romantic evening. If that's what your looking fro see if the front dining room or better yet upstairs is available.
While my food was delicious, the pace was like being in a race car. Felt like their goal was to turn tables as quickly as possible.
Overall, a good experience. Let's start with parking. There is very, very limited parking. Maybe valet parking or they should work out terms with the local stores next door to allow for parking.
There is a bar smack in the middle of the place. Lot's of levels to go up and down (stairs) The isle near the window is very narrow and tables for 2 are small.
The noise level is a bit loud especially when some knucklehead stands next to you while they are jabber jawing with a local neighbor. OMG Shut the (*&*&&^% up Yenta. You can hear people all around laughing and talking.
The food was OK but not great for the steep price. I had a veggie dish which was the same as the veggie dish with steak. Not sure how they priced that one.
So, overall OK but probably won't return. Too pricey, too noisy, limited parking.
Food was very good. Bar was terrific. Help was terrific. Enjoyed it very much. Will return. A tad pricey.
Went here for the first time with another couple and the food was fantastic!! We will definitely be back.
Appetizer peppers were different and tasty. Crabcake sandwich had too much filler. Burger large and tasty.
From the moment we arrived we were being rushed through the meal. The side dishes to our entrees came out cold and had to be sent back. We barely were done with dinner when they asked us if we wanted dessert. When we said not yet we were handed the bill. Overall not a good dining experience.
Excellent service, delicious food and beautiful ambiance.
One of our favorites on LBI. You can eat wonderfully in a healthy fashion, who more can we ask?
My family ate at the Plantation Friday 8/31/18. All four of us had the worst meal we have ever had, ever, anywhere. The food was inedible. The fried calamari appetizer was rubbery and tasted like old fried oil. The clam chowder didn't have a single clam in it nor did the lobster bisque have a single piece or even taste of lobster. Even the packaged oyster crackers were stale. The Ceasar salad with sirloin tips looked like dog food (I'm really not kidding) and was just not edible. The wedge salad would have been passible but it was drowned in enough dressing for 3-4 salads. I ordered simply thinking they couldn't screw up soup and salad, but they did.
On the plus side, they do take reservations and our waitress was lovely and attentive. If you're at the north end of the island, you would do much better at Kubel's or even Daymark. #We need a good restaurant.
Lobster bisque was fabulous. The food was very good and we brought some home and it was still great.
I have been coming to Plantation for 3-5 years, because their food is usually outstanding, but they are changing the menu, and how some dishes are prepared, and it just wasn't the same. So sadly disappointed!
Disappointing experience for a table of 6. Crab cakes were greasy, over-fried, and more filler than crab. Anemic portion sizes overall. Ambiance upstairs lacking--too bright and too loud. Some interesting items on the menu, but not enough to warrant a return visit anytime soon.
Really loud around bar. REALLY loud. Until one group of 4 left. Then it was reasonable. Great food.
We’ve been dining here for years. The food Is very good, service is very good but this restaurant is SO loud!! I must have only gone in the off season but I will never go in the season again!
Food was good. Service was good but the noise level was so high it was uncomfortable to order or convers. The staff agreed the upstairs of the Plantation is a box with no noise absorption. With out a private room pre bridal groups cannot be served with dinner guests. We live 4 blocks from here and will not teturn
Way overpriced for what it is. Definitely much better options for that price range. The food wasn’t terrible but not worth the prices they charge.
Very nice atmosphere, good menu selection, friendly service & as usual the food was very good!
Food was good but the upstairs dining area smelled awful and the ac leaked onto the tables
Food was excellent. Seating near bar is too noisy for conversation
Extremely noisy, halibut very bland! Beet salad was good and filet mignon was good! Disappointed not as good as it use to be!
Service was excellent and dinner exceptional ! Very reasonably priced and a great friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Great food and service. Shannon was a terrific server. She knew the menu and helped with gluten free options. FUN!
