Old Causeway isn’t technically on LBI, but before you insult our geography skills, know that we already heard it all in sixth-grade homeroom, and it still belongs on this guide. Not only is it the last turn before the bridge, but they also have a private shuttle that you can call to take you to and from the island. As the name suggests, there are steaks and oysters on the menu, and you won’t be upset ordering either here, but our favorite thing to get at dinner is the karate-chop pork chop doused in a pineapple-soy glaze. You could also just come for Happy Hour (3-6pm), have a few drinks at the bar, and eat some spice-rubbed wings and jersey devils (deviled eggs topped with fried oysters).
