Great breakfast

We passed this place on the boardwalk and decided to go in and have breakfast. Glad we did. The food was very good.

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

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
