My favorite place to eat in Lbi. They have the best food, never ever a complaint about that. I love their chicken and there early bird dinner is a great deal. I really think it's horrible how they claim you can only split checks four ways, 2 cash and 2 card. And the guy ringing me out made me use... More

My family and I had seen this restaurant featured on the travel Channel and had to try it. My aunt and uncle have a home on Long Beach Island, yet we have never visited this restaurant. While the wait was very long, it was definitely worth the wait. Granted, we were a table of nine. We shared five different types... More

I recently returned from a vacation on LBI and had breakfast at the Chicken OR The Egg with my boyfriend on a Tuesday morning around 9:00 a.m. We were skeptical on whether or not we should attempt to eat here because we have so often seen long lines of people hovering outside the restaurant waiting to be seated. (That's obviously... More

There is both good and bad news at Chicken OR the Egg. We visited COE this week for our first breakfast there. Our party consisted of three adults and a toddler. We arrived during the height of the mid-morning shift. First the good news: Decent breakfast fare, offering both standards and specialty items. Good variety of omelettes, too. They can... More

Greatly enjoyed the wings in the garlic sauce and the main-course salad. Very reasonably priced compared to the competition but the wait can be exceedingly long.

Food was ok. We waited almost an hour to get nothing special. Must be because they were on TV. I wonder what the big deal is. Service was good as we had a large group. Other than that we could have had the same old stuff anywhere.

This place was just ok. We had to go n check it out. The " naked " wings were good. Santos sauce was pretty yummy, different but tasty. Maybe I missed something but it wasn't all that. The food was nothing special. It felt like more of a fast food place with one step up. The Reuben was greasy n... More

Favorite breakfast ever! Goshdarnwich, Buffalo Chicken Omelet or Sunrise BLT top the list. The wings (especially naked Killer Bee Sting) are the very best. Garlic Pub Fries are crazy good. Burgers and soups and salads also are delicious.

Our first breakfast on LBI went there based on all of the positive reviews. We were neither disappointed or totally in love. Went on a Monday morning no wait for two. I had 1/2 waffle, egg white and bacon. Hubby had an omelet cheddar/bacon etc. Both were good, service was good. All in all, a good bet if you are... More

This came recommended from a local friend and boy was he on target. Got there about 11 pm Saturday night and the wait was still about 45 minutes long. We were determined and hungry so we stayed. Best decision we ever made. To say they were the best wings I've ever eaten would be an understatement. We got the bee... More
