Great Breakfast

No, it is not the Ritz. No, it is not spotless. But, YES, they have a great menu with great prices. I had breakfast and the service is fast and the portions are huge and price is very reasonable. They offer counter seating as well as table seating. The staff waits on you quickly and the order... read more

I stayed in the hotel and wanted to try the breakfast but the place looked so dirty that I walked away and decided not to eat there. I don't care how good the food is. I refuse to eat in a dirty place! The least they could do is clean the windows and wipe down the menus. YUK

Had a good, cheap breakfast here. Fast service. Yes it is grimy around the edges, but it is a good deal.

We saw the menu of the diner when we checked into the Atlantic Palace Suites, now known as Bluegreen Vacations at Atlantic Palace. We planned to give it a try based on the extensive menu and it's presentation. Upon returning to the hotel on our check out day, the guy behind the counter was rude about entering the hotel entrance... More

Honestly, my hamburger was really good and my husband's cheese steak sandwich was delicious and the portion was huge. You can skip the coleslaw- no flavor at all! I found it ironic that there was a health inspector in a taco stand we visited, yet this place looked as though it has been overlooked for years. The previous reviews are... More

The ceiling fans are warped and covered with two inches of grimy dirt. Styrofoam plates and cups and plastic utensils. One person takes drink order and another food. Didn't have 2 things spouse wanted. Paying bill was hassle.

The ceiling fans!!!! They are disgusting. Doesn't anyone that works there look up???? Grease dirt and dust blowing down on your food. The Board of Health in New Jersey needs to take a look at this place.

My husband and I have eaten here every time we have stayed in Atlantic City. The breakfast food is good northern style diner fare. I would definitely recommend the Greek omelot. The coffee is good as well. Prices are decent. The only drawback is the buildup of dust on the ceiling fans. I have never seen a dust buildup as... More

The menu is quite extensive, everything from breakfast to salads to platters. I have tried a variety of food from My Friend Diner and never disappointed. Their turkey burgers were excellent, chicken was also great and they make a wonderful egg sandwich. My favorite is the Mediterranean salad, kind of like the Greek Salad but I add chicken, feta, olives... More
