Tucker's Tavern is always a good place to go for dinner. We love that it is open all year. The food is always good.

Waiter was terrific. Hostess and manager sucked. They put us at a terrible table when several tables were available. They tried to say the othe 2 tables were “reserved”. I live in NYC and have a house on LBI and reserved tables are never possible. I found their approach to be arranging and negative. Personally we will KT be dinning there again. I really don’t appreciate their lack of customer service.

Had a great meal! Yes, it's pricey, but that's what you get in the off season when so many restaurants are closed. We were seated quickly, our water was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. As we left, a two person band was playing songs near the bar. They were really good! Overall, we would go back again.

My Mother’s 75th Birthday. The restaurant is not elderly or handicap assessable. My Mother had a hard time navigating the steps outside and inside. The server was excellent and friendly but the hostess was not very friendly. The food was very good.

I love live music, in fact I have played at bars and restaurants myself. The man playing on Saturday was just too in your face. He was loud and aggressive. Even though I was seated at the second to last table in the place, my party could not have a conversation due to his loud voice and banging on the guitar. He played some very good songs and was professional but we chugged our food and ran out of there. The server was very nice.

We had a nice table on the lower patio and an a very attentive server. The menu is, I suspect, covid-limited. The food was attractively presented and quite tasty. It is quite pricey, however. I doubt that I will be a regular patron.

Table ready on arrival, service appropriately friendly & fast, interesting drinks menu, good non-seafood options -- more choices than most other LBI restaurants. Not a fan of live music during dinner, but performer singer/guitarist was not the worst I have heard, and we were seated just far enough away we could hear ourselves speak.

Great dining experience celebrating Dads 90th bday on the deck at Tuckers.
Excellent service and attention by Lexi. Food was very good especially the jumbo shrimp cocktail! Was hoping for fresh fish tacos since they offered lamb tacos but no luck.

We've been to Tucker's before and always have a good experience. Prices have gone up but that's all over the island. Would like to give a shout out to Michael, our server. Very pleasant and always fun to talk to.

Fabulous waitstaff, great food choices for such a Tucktaway Long Beach Island spot. Large restaurant, beautiful seafaring indoor dining, outdoor dining also lovely near the water. Delighted with the food, and the joy of the wait staff. So good to see after a long season. Thank you!!!

Server was very sweet but had too many tables. Would have rather sat outside as inside very dark.

Food was nothing special but over priced.

Charging 3:50 for a refill on iced tea is a pretty bad thing to do. I. The Least your servers should tell the diner they will be charged.

When we got there hostess brought us outside and offered several tables but definitely had an attitude. Server was pleasant, seemed busy covering multi tables, when our appetizers arrived we didn’t have utensils but that server immediately brought them, when our entrees arrived we still had dirty dishes, when we asked her to remove them she was visibly annoyed slamming dishes causing clam juice splashing into our water. I said something and she did bring more water. When our server checked on us we told her what happened she informed the manager, who was very apologetic, overall nice place with good food

Hate to give a restaurant a bad review because it was understaffed, but this place was awful if they were fully staffed. 350 dollars for 6 plus 2 kids, for undercooked burgers and crab cakes. We never saw the waiter again after he took our order, a busboy brought us our food, and after asking for our check we waited another half hour. Very high prices for a very mediocre experience. My kids left early because they couldn’t wait for our check. Nothing positive to say here. I waited for the check by myself, nobody had the patience, by the way all our food was still on the table while waiting for the check and paying…
