    Food was alright and lacked some seasoning. Service was extremely poor. 8 servers standing around doing nothing but talking and on their cellphones. Water took 30 minutes to refill and additional requests of our server took 20-30 minutes. Will not go back soon.

    Heard great reviews about the hamburger. It was dry and tasteless. My husband’s burger was also dried out. We ordered medium and was told that it would be slightly pink inside. Ordered “wood grilled “ asparagus as my side. The were barely steamed and tasteless. We later learned that that the grill was broken. Had a reservation yet waited for our table. The restaurant had many empty tables. We were sat surrounded by large parties and lots of children. Very noisy.

    My party and I found all the food we ordered to be delicious, although we would definitely suggest adding more items to the menu. We go to Tucker’s Tavern more than 5 times every summer and even in the winter sometimes, we say every time we come that this menu needs to grow.

    Our server, Amanda, was professional, courteous, and personable. She checked in on us frequently and offered some worthwhile menu recommendations. The gentleman who greeted us at the outside host station was accommodating and very friendly. The lady who seated us (I believe Beverly) was also courteous and professional. The overall experience was wonderful, the timing of the meal perfect, and the ambience very pleasant. Thanks for a great evening out!

    This is definitely more of a bar than a restaurant. The food was awful, not one person at the table liked their meal. The shrimp were tasteless rubber and the kids pizza had cheddar cheese. Much better food on the island!

The flounder served over crab risotto was amazing. Highly recommend having dinner here! Good for a date, larger group dining and kid friendly as well.

    We have been coming to Tuckers for years! This is the first time we were disappointed with the food. The crab cakes that have always been outstanding did not taste like lump crab and had a lot of fillers for a high price. We also had the scallops that was 4 medium scallops for $40. I understand inflation but keep the quality the same . Don’t cut corners and charge more. Our waiter was wonderful and attentive.

    We always enjoy ourselves at Tuckers. The local oysters were so clean & fresh tasting & I had the local tuna tacos which were also excellent. My husband had the fish & chips which he said was delicious. We each had a “tikitini”, our favorite summer drink! For dessert we shared the blueberry corncake - very yummy!

    Tucker’s Tavern is a great place to dine or stop on for a drink. They are family friendly and offer indoor, outdoor and rooftop seating! They also have two bars, one is very large and equipped with televisions. My husband and I chose an earlier dinner time, as we were only in LBI for the day and had a long ride home. However, I’m sure that if you choose to eat later, there won’t be as many families, although they did not bother us at all.
