Omelets and French toast are awesome! Never met a bad waitress in the place. Fair prices. My wife and I average a bill of about $30. This is my main stop for breakfast while I'm in Atlantic city!

Food was cooked to order, good quality ingredients. Service was very friendly and tolerant of changes from posted menu fare. Easy to get to from AC on westbound side of route 30 in Absecon.

This is my new favorite diner in South Jersey, just outside Atlantic City- a great place to stop with family or friends. The food is as good (or better) than you'd get in any of the more expensive restaurants in A.C. It is extremely clean and comfortable and the service is outstanding. It's worth a visit just to see the... More

We were in New Jersey for the Atlantic City Boat Show and had stayed in Abescon to avoid the weekend rates at the casino hotels. Looking for something different than our hotel offered for breakfast, we decided to try the Pheonix and were very happy we did. Polite, efficient service and excellent food for breakfast. Perfectly cooked eggs, crisp bacon... More

My wife and I always stop here for breakfast when we leave Atlantic City. The service is always excellent and the wait staff is effecient and friendly. There are about a dozen breakfast specials to choose from at very reasonable prices. We love stopping at this diner.

This diner had great food and was reasonably priced. The staff was friendly without being overly solicitous. Our young server did not "hon" us, she called us "darlings"! Terrific!

Visited the restaurant late at night. Dishes were huge and allowed us to share.Plenty of options to choose from. Staff was extremely kind. Interesting alternative to Boardwalk competitors.

I checked the reviews here on TA before going to eat here, and we decided to give it a try. The hostess/cashier was friendly and welcoming. The food was very good diner food. We ordered four meals - a gyro, a grilled cheese & fries, a chicken sandwich and a breakfast plate of waffles, eggs and bacon. Everything came out... More

Very nasty and over priced!!! We barley touched our food because it tasted so discusting...the sad part is the waiter didnt even ask us is everything okay or even did refills on your drink. We left upset and hungry after spending $64.00, and had to go somewhere else to eat dinner.
