If you like the north end of LBI you will end up here

The north end of LBI from Loveladies north is a prettier, quieter, LBI. There are just a few restaurants and one of the most popular is Mustache Bill's. It is an authentic dinner with some extra dining space added on. We usually go their for breakfast but lunch is great too.

We have a rule when it comes to diners. The more cars in the parking lot the better the food! Well te parking lot at Mustache Bills is almost always full. It might be a little wait to find a table at breakfast but it's worth it! Locals & Tourist flock to this local gem!

My wife and I were completing the NJ lighthouse challenge and stopped at mustache bills for lunch. I had the fish tacos and my wife had a Cuban sandwich. They were both amazing, as were the shoe string fries that they made on site. Don't let the outside appearance fool you, the food is fantastic.

Mustache Bill's is a great diner in terms of atmosphere and friendly staff, but the big attraction is the food. You can't miss with scallops in Barnegat Light, as they fish them out of the ocean nearby, but nevertheless, the scallop chowder was outstanding, as well as the scallop and shrimp quesadilla and shrimp tempura. First rate establishment!

Mustache Bill's is an LBI staple. You can't come to LBI and not take a drive to the north end of the island to eat here. It is a rather small place, and sometimes you will have to wait, but it is totally worth it. The food is delicious, fairly priced, good service and the menu is not ridiculously huge... More

Mustache bill is your basic diner with no frills. However, the food was terrific. I had the Reuben which was full of meat with melted cheese which had obviously come right off the grill. My wife had the BLT which she said was the best she had ever eaten. The amount of chips on my sandwich and the fries on... More

The food is always wonderful. Most of our visits have been for breakfast because they serve the absolutely best omelets. Recently, we ordered and my husband's omelet came out before mine. When his was delivered the waitress informed us that our check was free because of the delay in delivering mine. She turned around; went back in the kitchen and... More

This is a perfect Jersey diner experience. Menu was extensive, large portions, food was average. But worth the visit if you value this vanishing type of venue
