Arrived less than 10 minutes after opening during off season. There couldn't have been 5 tables seated but they refused to turn off their ceiling fans despite the fact that the are a challenge for people with vision problems. They would not turn them off even though we were 20% of their customers so we left. Poor service experience.

A very busy diner. They have the best waffles, it is a great choice for kids. The avocado toast with olive oil is amazing. If you are tired of a regular diner food go to the turning point .

Fabulous food and a great atmosphere! This is a breakfast and lunch restaurant as they close at 3 o'clock. Seating indoors or outdoors, near the beach in Pier Village. They don't take reservations but they will take "call ahead's". On your way over there call them to have your name added to the waiting list. Your name should be near... More

We always try and have breakfast at turning point when at the shore. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful when ordering. The breakfast selection has something for everyone. My wife and her girl friend go to the turning point in westfield nj at least once a month for breakfast. I have never had there lunch.

The Turning Point has an interesting menu with many unique and delicious items for breakfast and lunch. For the most part, my breakfast was exceptionally good. However, I was a little confused about a part of the menu that advertised FRESH SQUEEZED Orange Juice and Lemonade. The prices of these items would certainly be justified if, in fact, they were...

We are frequent visitors to this sunny restaurant right by the beach, but today was even more special. My father is 92 and has trouble articulating himself and sometimes forgets what he wants to say even as he's saying it. Servers are usually impatient; understandably, because they have to hustle and are busy. However, our server, Rita, bent down so... More

This place has really delicious brunches, but plan for a long wait. The service is slow, but you won't feel rushed while dining when you finally get seated. The food is tasty, drinks too. Advance reservations are not allowed so get your name on the waitlist.
