Wonderful Place for Breakfast

I started going to the diner when I was young in the early 70's and the place is still very much the same, but the food is better. If you need a good breakfast give it a try. They have all your favorites with warm friendly service also. You may have to wait because it always seems to be busy.... read more

Hands down, our favorite diner. Food is fresh & delicious. Omelettes are yummy. Fries are hand cut. The place is EXTREMELY busy in the summertime. Off season, (when they are open) is much better. Bring cash, cause Bill doesn't take credit cards. Doesn't have too. If you are nice, (and if it isn't too busy, you can get pancakes made... More

one of our favorite things to do is to have a breakfast and a lunch at mustache bills. My husband says their manhattan clam chowder is the best he's ever had and we bring home 6 quarts with us so he can have it over the winter as well. He is a big fan of the chili as well! My... More

Mustache Bills is a great, classic diner. Breakfast is always delicious. Be prepared to wait for a table during the summer months.

Adorable, authentic Jersey diner, good food, very good service. Known for their really fluffy pancakes. Zakat rated and James Beard award winner. This place is about as far north on the island as you can go. Visit the Viking Village on your way back south.

We arrived late for lunch after a walk at the lighthouse. The parking lot was crowded and there was a short wait so we opted for sitting at the counter. (3) We were served quickly and had great lunches. I had the clam platter, others had the Reuben and liverwurst/onions sandwich. ( this was a Jersey specialty) Everything was great... More

There are a lot of choices on LBI, but for breakfast, this place is great. If you are considering pancakes, there are non better. I don't know what's in their batter, but they have flavor. Even thought they won the James Beard award, they continue to deliver with great food and service. Only open on weekends in the off season... More
