    Super cool place. Great bar and music. Outside patio looked beautiful but it was cooler so we ate inside. Door was excellent. Had the mahi special, crab cake and the corn guacamole. We had orange crush from the bar. Waiter was excellent but had about 7 tables. We were in no rush. Great location!

    I’m going to make this short and concise; - food: ok, not great - pricing: high but to be expected for good food not mediocre food. - wait staff, friendly and attentive - noise level, extremely loud. Was unable to have any type of conversation which worsened the experience. Will not be going back.

    The service was particularly great and food was served promptly. I had a problem with the soup being way too peppery hot for me and they were very accommodating about taking it away, offering a replacement and removing it from the check. All other food was great.

    Tuckers TavernResponded on September 9, 2022GraceS, Thanks for the review and we apologize for the soup mishap. We do vary with our soup of the day options and sometimes we hit on it and sometimes its just not for everyone. I am glad to read that we took care of that for you and removed it from the check. Please come back again soon!

    Great service and food. We were seated immediately (it was a rainy Wednesday night ) and we requested somewhere away from the band. We were ushered into a quiet dining room and were promptly waited on. The food was great. I had the burger and it was lean and flavorful with a good mouth feel. A good meal, a snug restaurant and good service. Perfect on a rainy night. Highly recommended!

    My husband had the calamari & burger, which he said were delicious! I had the strawberry toubouli salad, and attempted to each the vegan mushroom bisque. I was very happy they had mocktails, since I’m pregnant. However, the mushroom bisque was not good, it tasted like the dumped a whole can of pepper in? Luckily our server was amazing and removed it from the bill. Overall it was a good dinner, but the man at the front doing seat was a little harsh. I made a reservation but he had trouble finding it, even after I showed him the email.

    We have been dining at Tucker’s Tavern this year quite a bit and have been very satisfied until our last visit. I booked a reservation well in advance for a party of 4 and requested outside dining. Although we did get a table outside it was in an unacceptable location. The table was located at the very end of the property near a parking lot. The worst part was that there was no lighting! We had to use the light from our iPhones to view the menu and when we were eating our food. Again, most of our experiences were favorable and this feedback in no way reflects on the food or service. However, I was embarrassed to have our friends who had come to join us from North Jersey because we were raving about this place to have to dine under such circumstances. The table should not be used at night until lighting is provided.

    Great service, beautiful views and awesome ambiance! I went to dinner with my husband and our baby to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were seated outdoors and had an amazing view! We ordered the French onion flatbread to start and then the seafood Cobb salad for me and my husband ordered the special which was mahi mahi over vegetables. My daughter had the kids cheese pizza. Everything was very flavorful and fresh! We are looking forward to visiting again next year when we come back to LBI!

    Tuckers TavernResponded on September 7, 2022CarrieJ, Thanks for the wonderful review and 5 star rating! Come back for another anniversary next year to start a new tradition! And maybe some other visits sprinkled out along the year as we are opened year round! See you soon!

    We had 7:30pm reservations for an outside table...were first shown to an indoor table. There was a band playing (music was very good, but much too loud for the space). We reminded the hostess that we had requested an outdoor table. It took an additional thirty minutes to be seated. There were open outdoor tables that would have accommodated our party of two. The hostess did a great job keeping us updated, but no accommodation for our inconvenience, at all, was offered by any of the managers. Food was okay (nothing spectacular), and wait-staff service was sporadic (likely due to staffing issues). Can't say that I will hurry back to Tuckers any time soon.
