For years I have been driving past this place and at the last minute, my wife and I decided that we would stop in for breakfast. Wow, what a great meal. This is a classic diner setup. Great food, great staff and all at a good price. This will be a place that I will be back again. Just and... More

Okay, if a diner wins a James Beard Award (American Classics category) it has to be doing many things right. And it is. Maybe the best food on LBI. Yes, it get crowded. Yes, it is cash only. But all those people (mostly locals or home owners) obviously know that it is worth the wait. Despite the crowds the staff... More

Ordered off the special menu. Great simple sandwich. Great menu selection. Breakfast or lunch available all day. That's great.

Went for breakfast, service was great, food was great, and the waitress had Bill make a special truck pancake for our toddler. Made a good experience great. Service like that makes life time customers.

Visited early Sunday on a super rainy weekend. The food was very good; I had the cyclops - must be tried - very cool idea. My grandgirl had a heart shaped pancake. The visit with the servers and the locals was very friendly and we felt very welcome!

Good food. Good service. Nothing special, but nothing negative. You will not leave hungry. Good eggs, pancakes and coffee.

We arrived at 10:10. I asked the hostess how long the wait would be for 2 people? She said no wait for the counter, 20 minutes for a booth. We figured we'd wait the 20 minutes to be more comfortable. After the 20 minutes had come and gone I asked her again, how much longer? She said not much. Lots... More

This is our absolutely favorite place to eat on LBI. We can never pass up a Cyclops- pancakes with eyes in the middle to look like a cyclops. This summer I had the Korean tempura fried with kimchi slaw which was absolutely delicious. This is a diner with a gourmet flair!

Down for weekend. Went for breakfast was crowded so ate at counter. Classic Jersey dinner. Perfect eggs and pancakes. Too bad they are not open for dinner. Would definitely return.
