Super delicious chicken and egg!!

We wanted to have seats in the restaurant but they had 1.5 hours waiting list. We made it to go. I had "Buffalo Chicken wich" that was a sandwich of fried chicken with lettuce and onions. It was great and reasonably priced. My girlfriend got a buffalo omelet, which was also very much tasty. The... read more

The title says it all. If you enjoy waiting for a meal and don't mind a very loud restaurant - go for it. The food is average but I don't believe that it is good enough to justify the wait. It is better suited for a teen hangout.

Another reviewer said this is open year round. It is not but it does open early and stay open later than a lot of places. The early bird dinners are complete--almost too much food- and very inexpensive. The place is super crowded in the summer and you will likely be waiting for a table. Good for late night takeout too.

If you're going to be on Long Beach Island be sure plan to have a meal here. Completely recovered from a devastating Sandy, this place couldn't be better. Fast service, great food, immense popularity. Be prepared to wait for a table, but it is totally worth it.

Food was very good. The scene was frantic as it is such a busy place and the line was quite long but worth the wait....

Great breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Sauces are for sale to go and worth it. Wings are so goods

We have a family of 6 and waited well over 30 minutes for a table for average food. Some of the chicken wing sauces are hot, but the food is your standard pub grub.

We were first timers in LBI but it seems no trip is complete to LBI without a meal at this restaurant. There seems to always be a wait no matter what time you pass by. We enjoyed it very much--went for breakfast. Huge menu, efficient service, very good food--it's a well oiled machine.

Fun Place with lots of choices, We went twice while on Long Beach Island and went while off season so nice that it was open. They have Wings that you can choose your temp, sandwiches, salads, entree's and breakfast all the time.

We love the Chicken or the Egg. They have such an expanded menu that there is always something for everyone no matter what time of day or night. Great place to bring young kids because of all the hustle & bustle not to mention so much memorabilia to look at and really keep them busy.
