Always busy but plenty of space and attentive wait staff move customers through without creating a sense of urgency. Everyone is there to make your meal outstanding, including Bill who may seat you, check your table and check again when he takes your cash only payment. Special omelettes are as good as you can find anywhere, i.e. The Nova. Grits... More

I always hit Mustache Bill's- there omelets are perfect and the "designer" pancakes a treat for the kids. Go early-it gets crowded but worth the wait.

Great menu selection. Food cooked to order and well presented. Our waitress was a gem. Look forward to going there every year. Very family friendly. Terrific omelettes.

Great little diner. Scallops were fat and fresh. Had the best gigantic milkshake I can remember. Only thing I didn't love was the fish tacos.. Too much sloppy salsa and not enough fish.. more like a burrito than a taco...should have had condiments on the side. Otherwise, very good!

We've been coming to Barnegat Light for 20 years, and this place is the best. Expect long lines on the weekends, and know that it's only open for breakfast and lunch. Also, little known secret fact - they will make the most amazing pancakes for you kids in any shape you can think of. Tell the kids to start dreaming... More

Typical diner atmosphere. Very busy, very noisy and very fast service. The crab, mushroom and cheese omelet is outstanding. Perfect balance of Swiss cheese and crab. Potatoes were disappointing, but coffee was good !

I wouldn't think of visiting LBI without a stop at Mustache Bill's for brunch or lunch. Been doing that since 1990, and will continue enjoying his great food whenever I can.

I ordered Pancakes and Bacon at this real American diner in Barnegat Light NJ, it was perfectly cooked and made from scratch! This diner has been around for years and is a staple of the Barnegat Light Community. I highly recommend it!

Bill Smith and crew are one of few "genuine" NJ diners (in the state that made diners famous!). The omelets (especially the crab, mushroom & cheese) are probably the best on the entire island. Bring your little ones to breakfast and watch their eyes light up when Bill performs his artistry with pancake batter. The little mermaid pancakes seem to... More
