Had a great Breakfast, but now we mustdash!

Bike ride to Mustache Bill's for a weekend breakfast. A great family diner. Food is tastey Service is good. There can be a long wait if you get there too late on a busy summer weekend. Eggs were good and blueberry pancakes were very tasty! We noted the cook had made "shark" shaped pancakes for the... read more

What can I say??? We ate here 3 days out of the 7... My boys went an extra day. Won't break the bank. Service is quick even though you may have a line. It does go quick. We had to wait at most 15 minutes. Go window shop next door. Chipped Beef is the best! My boys loved Bill's Pancake... More

I can see why this was on Triple Ds. This place is the diner experience done right. We went for breakfast. The service was fast and friendly. There was a wait to get seated due to the popularity but they really turn tables fast. Every portion was huge and the prices are very reasonable. The coffee as expected in a... More

Had lunch with my family of 6. Food was passable. If you like salt, you'd love this place. I'll drive by the next time. Save your money and go elsewhere.

After reading so much hype about this place, I had to try it especially since it was on Diners and Drive ins on the Food Network. The place sits at the "quiet end" of Long Beach Island, near the Barneget Lighthouse off Central Street. The place from the outside looks like a typical 50's style diner, silver on the outside...

Everything from coffee to finish is great. Bill roams to assure happy patrons, but hustling waitresses keep customers fed and filled. Daily specials with great omelets, pancakes, eggs, home fries and desserts can't be beat. Families and friends line up early to get in to enjoy the James Beard Award dinner. If you miss breakfast, there might be lunch that... More

We love walking to Mustache Bill's for a weekend breakfast. A great family diner. Food is first rate. Service is good. There can be a long wait if you get there too late on a busy summer weekend. Eggs and blueberry pancakes are my favorites.

We recently visited the Barnegat Light area and stopped at Mustache Bill's for breakfast. We actually learned of it by seeing it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We enjoyed the experience.

Came on a Sunday morning specifically for omelets and they were everything we hoped! Three of us ordered the Baja - fresh avocadoes, swiss and bacon. Probably the best omelet I've ever had. Fluffy, no skimping on the filling, piping hot and huge! The staff is super friendly and Bill is a presence. Definitely recommend the next time you're on... More
