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.

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

Another great family dinner at Tuckers last night while on vacation in LBI. Our appetizers and entrees were all fresh and delicious, and our drinks came out from the bar very quickly. Service was excellent too.

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…

This was always our go to restaurant and we have enjoyed many good meals over the years. That is why I am saddened to write this review. First, the menu is now quite limited…not sure if this is as a result of COVID. My husband ordered a margarita to start and had to send it back…we were not charged, but still! I ordered a Malibu bay breeze, that was mostly juice, not even sure if liquor was in it. Nevertheless, with limited choices for me, I had the salad with added chicken…which tasted so dry and was hard to cut…for the price I expected better. My husband had the flounder and it was okay. I will say the service is good…all the young woman are very friendly and accommodating. We were both disappointed as our numerous previous visits were so positive.

We’ve been going to Tuckers for 30 yrs and in their defense, it was a rainy night. It was mobbed…sat 30 minutes after our reservation. Food was ok. We love the rooftop-and weren’t able to be outside.

Not sure when things changed but wow! the food quality at tuckers and the live entertainment made for a pretty bad night out. Definitely avoid the crab cake- it’s a step below a grocery store bought frozen seafood cake dropped into a deep fryer for way too long. Inedible. The live music was so loud and grating that every table around us left as soon as they could and we were at the back of the restaurant! Will not go back.

They’re very short staffed. Took forever to sit even though we had a reservation. Service was overall very slow. Food was cold upon receiving it and waiter was very hard to flag down as he had his hands very full. Drink refills took far too long as did everything else.
