The Plantation Restaurant Review: The Island breezes---Long Beach Island breezes, that is---and The Plantation’s décor, including rattan chairs, plus the rum-laced drinks bring the tropics to mind. While you'll find some South Seas-inspired delicacies such as tempura coconut shrimp with mango sauce and a tropical vinaigrette, the menu range is really quite global, with New England clam chowder with parsley-infused olive oil and pan-roasted Scottish salmon served with Vidalia onion and crab risotto. Desserts tend toward those with island accents, with Key lime pie being a good choice. The bar is more noted for specialty drinks than a sophisticated wine list. Service is friendly.
