Good Cheap Breakfast

Yes it's a hole in the wall, but I honestly didn't find it as dirty as others did. Also, I didn't find the staff to be rude, but just overworked - there was one person cleaning tables and seating, one taking drink orders (both didn't speak much English), and then one waiter handling the entire... read more

It is located on the boardwalk. Food is ok, there is a various menu woth sandwiches, salads and steak. Service is fast. When we arrived the waiter moved the menu from the table and it was stucked because of the dirtiness. Same thing woth flip flops on the flor. We won't go back.

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.

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 arrives very quickly.... More

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.
