Top 5 Wings In My Lifetime

Ocean City, MD 08/01/2017
5 / 5

Went there with my family yesterday and was blown away by the food. I'm normally with the "All OC food is the same" crowd, but this experience has changed that mindset. Meals are incredibly well-prepared, fresh, accurately cooked and absolutely delicious. Service is friendly and quick. And I appreciate that the owner has made himself a real presence with his business. He clearly knows that a personal touch can add a lot of stability to the workplace and keep customers coming back. Get. The. Addiction. Wings. I am a wing connoisseur and when I say that these were top-5 wings in my lifetime, I mean it! Plump, perfectly breaded and fried and the addition sauce is jaw-dropping. I'm not even worried about "overselling" with this particular review because these wings will prove me right every time. I also got the longboard burger which was, again, perfectly cooked (I got medium), and the poached egg was a great touch. Fries were crispy and tasty too. I will be coming back soon and bringing backup!

About Us

Welcome to The Longboard Cafe

Established in June of 2013, Longboard Café is a casual surf-themed bistro located in the Town Center shopping plaza at 67th St. in Ocean City.  Awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2015, Longboard has earned consistently rave reviews for food, cocktails, service and ambience.  Open for lunch and dinner, our menu stands apart from typical resort fare with a wide array of offerings ranging from gourmet burgers, innovative tacos, salads and sandwiches to full dinner entrees featuring fresh local fish prepared in a variety of styles, beef, shellfish & pasta. Our pub fare includes items such as Mexican street corn, our famous “Wrinkled Green Beans”, sushi-grade ahi nachos and Chef Duffy’s award-winning “Bonzai” wings. On the beverage side, local craft drafts, premium margaritas and an outstanding wine list are featured.

Our slogan “Casual Dining . . . Refined” reflects our approach to food and beverages.  Every item on our menu is about preparation and flavor. All of our sauces, salsas, dressings etc. are meticulously house made. We use fresh local sources wherever possible, and premium ingredients such as our chuck, brisket & short rib custom blended burgers.

Longboard is owned and operated by Rick Vach, a longtime Ocean City local with a rich family culinary background. Parents Dick & Mary Carroll owned the Quarterdeck and Wild Goose Chase restaurants in Ocean City in the 70’s and ’80’s, and brother Josh owns and operates 5 restaurants in Wrightsville North Carolina. Sister Martha provides all the desserts for Longboard and several other local restaurants. Rick operated Island Time Café in the Sunset Island community for six years prior to launching Longboard, and also created the popular but short lived Avalon Market gourmet store in West Ocean City.
