General's Chipped Beef is the Best by far!

A trip to Ocean City is not complete without trying their out of this world creamed chipped beef and other great foods they serve. I have been going there for about 40 years and I wouldn't leave OC without my breakfast of creamed chipped beef from the Generals for which I look forward to all year!

VRose1992, I've been hearing that they are relocating to 66th street, where Galaxy 66 was. I'm not sure if it has been made final yet or when they plan to open.

Just to fill anyone in who doesn't already know, the General's Kitchen closed down towards the end of last year because the landlord ended their lease after over 40 years of being at the location. The guy let the restaurant owners do many renovations before filling them in on his plans to kick them out and let his friend put... More

Bummer - we drove around, trying to find the General's Kitchen, but it appears to have closed down. The blocks from 7200 to 7500 are void of this restaurant, and there seems to be a vacant, what was formerly a restaurant with a green awning and empty sign which now states "coming soon - Coaches Corner".

Be prepared to wait in line but it is well worth it. The line moves quickly and is wonderful once you get inside.

We go to the Generals at least 4 times a year while vacationing. The lines can look daunting, but it moves fast. This place gets you served ASAP. The food is good, the prices are reasonable, the portions are big. Best breakfast place in OC.

I've wanted to eat at the General's Kitchen for years but it was always too crowded or I woke up too late. This was my first time and it was great. It is a small place but it didn't bother me. The food portions were large enough I was full but not super large where I had leftovers, so that... More

We love to stop at great diners and this is one for you. We were in OC off season and this place is open year round. You can tell that they are used to crowds and keep people moving through the tables. That doesn't mean that they don't take their time to make you feel welcome and well fed. The... More

This little restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. We went for Saturday breakfast and we could tell that it was popular by the length of the line extending out of the door and across the sidewalk, with more groups of hungry diners homing in from all directions. We were seated in about 25 minutes and it was very... More

The General's Kitchen has to be one of the best places in Ocean City for breakfast. The meals are great, spanish omelette, is just one of them. It is a great place to start your day. Just ask the many local that stop by in the morning. The service is great too.
