Hidden gem tucked behind the main drag. Two words: Blackened Ribeye Easily one of the top 5 steaks I've ever eaten. Mouthwatering just thinking about it. Rest of meal was awesome. Drinks were incredible. Friends also thought the same, especially about the ribeye. Came recommended from another local restaurant as we had just missed dining there before close. A must for us from now on.

Seriously one of a kind, awesome food friendly staff, good prices. Stumbled on this place visiting Spice and Tea Exchange so very happy we did!!! We had lunch and ordered Paseo and Cubano and Jamaican jerk chicken and...wow! We found our new favorite spot. We joked about how we were going to make excuses to come to ocean City just to eat here!!! (We eat a lot of places, and are very picky people, the fact this place blows us away means they are REALLY REALLY AWESOME!!!!)

We live and work year-round in Ocean City and this our favorite restaurant. The food and menu are fabulous and the we love the atmosphere. Great sandwiches, seafood and steaks and the best Mexican on the shore. If you are vacationing with us, you owe it to you self to try Longboard. It becomes one your favorite restaurants also!

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.
