the ham and cheese omelet was good and my wife liked her corn beef hash but they could not poach the eggs. The wait staff was very friendly and brought us extra toast. But you are eating off of foam plates and plastic ware. It was not air conditioned so it was hot. It's on the boardwalk so mostly beach... More

My family tried an assortment of subs and wraps from the take-out menu. The portions were larger than expected and everything was delicious. Will certainly go again.

We visited My Friend Diner Friday morning after a lovely stay at the Atlantic Palace. It was just awful. After listening to the couple behind us complain of how terrible their breakfast was, we were almost ready to get up and leave. But what told us this place was not worth visiting was when that couple told her server that... More

Placemats had coffee stains, scrambled eggs were in between the napkins. Not too many full breakfast places on the boardwalk so we stayed to try the food which was ok. Wouldn't go back.

Needed a diner for my eggs and toast and this was the only one in the area. It is on the boardwalk so your in a safer area. My gf got a burger and it was OK. My eggs were very good. But the home fries might be the best I ever had. They tasted sooooo good. They had peppers... More

This diner looks like the food would be terrible by appearance. It could use a face lift and the food is served with the fine plastic china. However, The food was positively excellent. The western omelet and home fries were cooked perfectly. The pancakes and bacon were also good. The bacon was cooked hard but not burnt which made it... More

Reasonable prices for typical Greek diner menu. Served on plastic plates and cooked to order. Great breakfasts and salads, burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Closed for dinner. The place is right at Atlantic Palace but has a Boardwalk entrance.

This was an average diner: quick service, easy/friendly people, lots of things to choose from, good prices, and no frills. It's exactly what you would expect from a typical NJ diner, just a tiny bit more expensive for being on the boardwalk. They have everything from sandwiches to breakfast to burgers to a surprisingly extensive Asian menu. I went with... More

Great little place right on the boardwalk and in the lobby of our hotel. After a night of no or little sleep thanks to the paper thin walls of our hotel room, our family of 5 needed a good hearty breakfast and much coffee. The service was quick and friendly. The portion sizes were large, and the prices were pretty... More
