Favorite Place for Breakfast on LBI

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....

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.

The food is consistently great! Eat in ir take out, something good for everyone. They are known for their wings! But make sure you don't overlook the rest of the menu!

If you are looking for quiet, romantic location with plenty of ambiance, this is NOT the place for you. But if you are looking for really good food in generous portions, get in line (literally)! Like most other restaurants on the island it is a seasonal venue (open from April through the end of October), but when it's open it... More
