Very tasty breakfast!

The menu selection was great. Quite a few options to choose from. The staff was super friendly and even though the restaurant was full, we still got in quickly and it didn't take very long for our food. Tasty little breakfast joint!

We visit the Beach Diner for breakfast or lunch. My husband really enjoys the catfish for breakfast. At lunch, I enjoy the vegetable plate. They have a good variety to choose from and they are seasoned well. This diner is a little loud but the food makes up for that.

Unless you are at some fancy hotel breakfast buffet, the only way to separate a good greasy spoon '" breakie"' from another is the potatoes and how they are prepared. To rate 4 dots the spuds must be fresh as in baking or red bliss not the frozen soggy junk a la Denny's etc.at the beach diner they were red... More

Great greasy spoon, did not disappoint on a Tuesday morning. Owen had a cajun inspired egg dish and I did the benedict. Everything was great, the place is clean and bright. Is probably fun to eat on the porch when pretty out. Definitely would recommend. Prices are also very good for the portions you receive.

This is a local place with a big menu. The service is great and the food even better. I had a shrimp omelet (hey...it's near the ocean and fresh!)

Beach diner, a cute diner, great friendly service, and good food. We had breakfast at the beach diner and were quite pleased with our food. Omelets, French toast, awesome home fries. Everything was homemade and so tasty. You will not be disappointed. The lunch menu looked great too. We might have to go back before our trip ends.

There is a reason this place is so busy on the weekends. The food is consistently served at a high quality. The servers are top notch. And the price is still reasonable. I have been a regular there for nearly 13 years, now.

We had to wait about 25 minutes on a Sunday, but the food is worth it! We also ate with the "Blue Angels" in town for an airshow!!! Staff is great. "Stop the Gate" is the motto, a large company has bought the property an the restaurant wants to stay. It has been there for years
