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.

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

Nothing fancy. Quick service and decent breakfast at a reasonable price. Think we found our breakfast spot.

Ate breakfast here one time during our stay in AC. Food was ok. Everything served on paper plates with plastic utensils. Hot tea was horrible. Service was lousy. They keep the door open to the boardwalk...it was cold!
