The Longboard - Sullivan’s Island is the 2nd iteration of The Longboard concept, originally born on St. John [USVI], opened May 2015 in the heart of Cruz Bay. Like the flagship concept, the S.I. location offers light & health fares and creative cocktails inspired by coastal regions around the globe. This location also embraces the rustic, wood-fire cuisine of the group’s other Caribbean locale [The Easterly – St. Thomas], focusing on fresh & local seafood, handcrafted cocktails, and an extensive wine list... all with a Lowcountry focus in mind.

    Seated inside as outside seating was reserved for later guests. Very noisy inside, we could barely hear each other I had to put in an ear plug in one ear. Waitress was nice, but failed to explain items on menu. Had ask about unfamiliar dishes. They ran out of some menu items (it was only 6:00 PM) and also bread. Food was OK, nothing special. Basically, it’s a large beach bar that serves food so best for larger groups, if you don’t mind shouting to be heard.

    Love this place! We went during off season so it was quiet. The bar and restaurant was nice and open with outdoor seating. We sat inside since it was a little cold outside. Food was fantastic and a bit eclectic…sort of Asian fusion inspired. It was a bit expensive but most places on the island are for the most part. We will be coming again. Parking would be a challenge during high season.

    Everything we ordered was amazing. Very thoughtful dishes with great flavor. Our server gave us an incorrect menu with dishes only available until 5:00, so we had our hearts set on a few things that we not available. They did make an exception and made a salmon roll for us! We were disappointed that there was no daily catch. When I was there in the past, they either accommodated my gluten allergy better or they gave me gluten without knowing because there were fewer accommodations for me this time. The good news is that the soy sauce is gluten free!

    Food was good, server was excellent. Limited parking. My problem with this establishment is that they overtly penalize customers who pay by credit card. Not only do they charge 4% for credit card use, they put it on the check before they even know your method of payment. As a 42-year veteran of the hospitality industry, i think that this move by some bars and restaurants is short sighted and offensive to 95% of their customers. Who carries around wads of cash these days except for those who can't get a credit card. Society is moving away from cash use, particularly since Covid. Credit card processing fees are a cost of doing business so build it into your menu pricing rather than overtly slapping your credit card paying customers in the face with it. I won't return as with any establishment that I find doing this.

    Crab appetizer and seafood mains were excellent as were the cocktails and service. The credit card transaction fee of 4% was ridiculous. Appreciate everyone’s costs are going up including restaurants but that fee level was over the top.

    Really depends on what kind of environment you're looking for. We had eaten there before on a weeknight and thoroughly enjoyed it. Last night on a Saturday we could not hear each other across the table/booth. Given this was our Valentines Day date it was disappointing. Food was good, not great. Finally, was a bit perturbed when the waitress brought the check and gave me a pen that was out of ink. She didn't come by the table for another 15 minutes....

    The server did not arrive for 10 minutes or so, the appetizer took a long time and dinner came out right after it so we didn’t have time to finish the first course. The swordfish was over salted and the salad mustard vinaigrette on top was too strong for the dish. The salad was good but the salmon crude was not edible.

    Not your typical low country seafood restaurant. Small but varied Caribbean inspired menu. Fresh, healthy - nothing fried. We had steak, Tuna, and swordfish. All excellent. Ambiance is hip rustic, centered around the huge, popular bar. We’ll be back!
