Megs is like the "Cheers" of Lavallette. You go in there and you know everybody and it's laid back, friendly and the food is great. There is no other place to go for breakfast or lunch-it's the bomb! You have to try Meg's-it's another Icon!

We've been stopping by for breakfast regularly, actually since the very day they ist opened their doors, and we kept on returning because we were always pleased with the service and food. I can understand a slip up or two during "season", when they are so so rushed, but what happened today? Sausage and potatoes overcooked and dried out, (reheated... More

Great place at the beach to grab a bit. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. It can be slow since there's only 2 waitresses but they're very pleasant!

Walked over to Megs for breakfast one morning. They were nice and accommodating for our large group of 6 plus two kids. One warning, they do not split checks. The food was good. I liked the French toast and Taylor ham the best. Give Meg's a visit.

Love the Meg's scrambler. Gets quite crowded on the weekend, even in the off season. No frills but you really can't go wrong. Great prices too for quantity of food. Fun to BYOB with a bottle of champagne then lounge on the beach after.

Every time I got to Lavallatte for a weekend I have to have breakfast at Meg's Love it. You might have to wait but it is worth it.

I just got back from a trip to the Jersey shore and wanted to let people know about a breakfast my family and I had while there. Meg's has a wonderful atmosphere with lots of surf boards and beach pictures all over. The location has easy access right on the strip. All of the food was well prepared and fresh... More

Cute little place, outside tables and usually breakfast menu, courteous service nicely timed - like that fruit is an option as a side instead of potatoes. Just had some eggs and toast. No complaints, open for lunch too.

Great local place. Delicious omlettes and sandwiches. Caution.....the buttermilk pancakes are flavored with alot of vanilla extract, which totally suŕprised my tastebuds. It was NOT what I was expecting when I tasted them, as I wanted plain buttermilk pancakes. Fair enough, when I mentioned my disappointment in them, they kindly adjusted the bill. Its a great place to meet up... More
