Prices were resort sized but the food was very good. However, when the place smells like grandma's attic, it is hard to tell what the food tastes like. I guess you get used to it like getting used to the smoker's smell - but we...More

Surfside West is west because the original was east just off the south end of Wildwood Boardwalk. This one is inland a couple of blocks but draws both locals and visitors. Open April to October, it features pancakes leavened by beer from local breweries, eggs...More
