    We could not be happier with our decision to choose The Gables as the venue for our September 2016 wedding! From the venue selection process all the way through helping us pack up our extra cake and supplies the morning after our wedding, Sandy, Sondra and the entire Gables team were such a delight to work with from beginning to end. We are thrilled that we decided to hold our ceremony and celebrate with our family and friends in such an intimate, unique and beautiful space in the heart of LBI. Sandy's responsiveness and assistance during the planning process were outstanding and all of The Gables staff provided the same level of exceptional service on our wedding day. Choosing a venue with great food for ourselves and our guests was very important to us, and the ability to work with the chef and pastry chef to craft a menu that was exactly what we wanted was one of our favorite parts of the process. Enjoying dinner, dessert and our delicious chocolate peanut butter cake and dancing with our guests in the garden were definitely highlights of the night! We highly recommend The Gables as a wedding venue and know that we will surely be back to celebrate special occasions there for many years to come. Thank you to every one at The Gables for helping to make our wedding so special!

    The Gables Inn and Restaurant was absolutely exquisite. Sondra and Sandy were extremely attentive, fair and just nice people. The food was exceptional as was the staff. We've had dinner here many times and knew of its beauty and history but having our wedding here was just magical. Thank you Sondra and Sandy!!!

    The Gables is a breath of fresh air! The atmosphere alone is 5 stars, not to mention the amazing delicacies that come from the kitchen. The photographs that I have gotten from weddings and rehearsal parties have been fabulous. The recently restored building is beautiful. The garden out back has many great nooks and crannies to take photos. Even if you cannot have your wedding/party here, go for lunch or dinner!
