Breakfast here was just wonderful, we were seated outside on a beautiful sunny weekday morning and enjoyed the slight breeze. The server came right over with the menus and offered drinks, which were brought out quickly. My husband ordered an omelet with homefries & a side of the famous blueberry pancakes. I ordered the blueberry pancakes as well and a... More

There is plenty of parking spaces available that is shared among the other businesses by the marina. Breakfast on a weekday was the perfect time to come because we avoid the huge crowd and waiting line on weekends. Their breakfast prices are reasonable and you get a beautiful view of the marina and the Casinos in the background. I will... More

My wife and I went here for breakfast because we saw the high rating and it was within walking distance of the place we were staying. We sat outside by the water which we found OK and better than sitting inside. We found both the service and the food to be OK but nothing more. We had omelets with homefries... More

Stopped at Gilchrist's for lunch after a visit to the Atlantic City Aquarium. Turned out to be an excellent choice. We sat outside on the deck and the weather and view were perfect. They had an extensive menu and they served both breakfast and lunch items. That was perfect because some in the group wanted breakfast foods and some wanted... More

The restaurant is located right on the docks and provides you with a terrasse that has a superb view of the uptown hotel of Atlantic City. The food is excellent. You have to try the blueberry pancakes, which are the restaurant's specialty. They were the best I ever had! The service is professional and efficient. Their prices are much better... More

I am a true carnivore - caring less about carbs and more about the savory. Gilchrists pancakes are stuff of legend and the rumors are true. Served with real butter and serve yourself syrup already on table, you will regret only ordering a short stack. Sitting out on the patio is truly a Treat weather permitting. Make it a stop... More

My friend and I had a terrific breakfast there recently. It is a fun little place right on the water at Gardiner's Basin. The prices are very reasonable and the food was great. Terrific pancakes and omelettes,etc. It was by far, the best breakfast we had in AC. Highly recommended! Bill P.
