My husband and I went t the Lido Deli for lunch. They have a large take-out counter and a separate seating area for dining. The portions are huge. The waiter brought us a large bowl of coleslaw and another of pickles. Food was good service not so much..

Disappointed by the Lady Owner. I visited Jordans with some friends recently for an early dinner. We were greeted by the Lady Owner who sat us in the window, as it was 4pm the sun was starting to set and as I sat down I realised the sun was shining directly into my eyes and we wouldn't be able to sit there. I suggested we moved tables because of this and the Lady Owner told me that this was the most coveted seat in the house and that we should not move (in a sarcastic and unpleasant tone), my companion suggested we lower blind which did the trick, the Lady Owner said to me that I shouldn't block out the sun because judging by my accent (British) I obviously didn't get much of it. I live in Massachusetts by the way if you're reading this. The whole encounter was really unpleasant and unnecessary.

That aside the waitress that subsequently took care of us was really lovely and the lobster was good. As I was visiting family I was hoping to make this a regular spot for us, but given the nastiness of the Lady Owner, I think this is unlikely to happen.

Because of the my experience I would not recommend you visit Jordans, unless you like your seafood with a side order of shade.

Reviewed By Jgoldchain - Long Beach, New York

Marvel has been around as long as I can remember. You can find it by looking for the line that exists outside almost all the time. The reason for the line is self-evident. The soft serve Ice-cream is outstanding and the best around.

Dough Hut

Reviewed By pauliebee - Long Beach, New York

This little store is Long Beach 's best kept secret! The doughnuts are freshly made and taste like real home made treats, not like the doughnuts you all know from the national chains. Service is very friendly and personal, prices are reasonable. This is a must when you in the area!

Long Beach Bagel Cafe

Reviewed By Sapphire-Ed - St. Thomas

I've gone here many weekend mornings but never rated them for some reason. So this one makes up for all the ones I've missed.
These bagels are big, moist and if hot, out of this world. Saturday and Sunday mornings figure on a line out the door is how good these bagels are.
My favs are salted with nothing on it if I just want to eat it like a pretzel. Or, onion with a lot of scallion cream cheese if I want a meal.
It's 10:30 at night and I'm tempted to take a ride just writing about them. But, don't worry I won't but maybe tomorrow morning!

Cute decor, great service.
Cuisine...very good but not as stupendous as a three week waiting list would lead one to believe.
Not a fan of the family style serving tables and the solo tables are way too close together.
Terrible acoustics.
Will try again another time.

Fresco Creperie & Cafe

Reviewed By Diane P - New York

Perfect place for a relaxing but quick bite during shopping trip to eclectic stores. Already familiar with menu from Williston Park venue and not disappointed here. Glass of wine or beer available . Cash only but reasonable prices make it easy. Great choice of fish or meat or veggie crepes with salad on side.

The wood fired Pizza is unbelievable! Topped with your choice of anything imaginable you can't go wrong. This is not your usual round pie. It is oblong and served on a wooden plank. They also have really good Italian pastries and cookies for desert.

Gino's Restaurant and Pizzeria

Reviewed By Krisjand - Weiden, Germany

This is my go-to Pizza place when I'm in LI. The pies are great and the service is fast. Plenty of seating inside if you are stopping in and their take out service is really good. My kids love the garlic knots. Parking can be tough on Long Beach Road, but worth finding a spot if you need to eat.
