If I could leave 0 stars I would. The food was great but unfortunately the service left such a bad taste in our mouths that even that was hard to enjoy. I went in with a friend this Monday morning, on the off season. We only had to wait two minutes but as soon as we were seated we were... More

My daughter and her boyfriend went to Uncle Will's in LBI 3 days in a row. Both live in different parts of NYC and know a good breakfast when they see it, and were raving about the banana-chocolate chip pancakes and omelettes. So I took my son, my daughter, and her boyfriend back there today for breakfast. What an amazing... More

After searching high and low for a family establishment for dinner the only place with no wait was UW and I now know why! I ordered jumbo coconut shrimp for $26 and what I got was 4 tiny to medium microbes and chewy shrimp!!! They have an open window and you literally see them microwaving food left and right, we...

My family and I had good reviews for Uncle Will's, so we decided to try it for dinner one night. Big Mistake! As I looked at the menu, it seemed from the description that the shrimp might be a but spicy. When our waitress came, I asked her and she swore up and down that only the sauce was spicy,... More

Coffee rocks. The menu is varied and the pancake selection is excellent. Very good food but a bit pricey for breakfast.

Every year my family and I head down to LBI for our family getaway, it is such a relaxing vacation every year and we just love coming down every year. This year before leaving to come back home, I had stopped to get breakfast with Mom. Every year I had driven past your location because you guys were packed and... More

The service at Uncle Will's is nearly impossible to beat, at times it seems like they know what you are going to order before you order it, as the food comes out so fast. The food is very good here and always has some good omelet specials. Pancakes are good as well. This place is very good for kids as... More

Once you go to Uncle Will's, it will be one of your go to places every time you're at the beach. It's a tradition with our family and friends for many years. Great pancakes, fresh squeezed juice, all the classic breakfast choices and you can get REAL maple syrup. Everyone and their brother know about Uncle Will's and you will... More

OK, I'll admit the wait can be long, but if you're on LBI with the family, you can't pass up this experience. While you may not think it would work, Will's is a "Pig Themed" restaurant which the kids especially, (and many adults) really enjoy. If you've got rambunctious kids, ask your waiter/waitress to move "Uncle Will" to your table,... More

Every year we make a point to stop and visit Uncle Will's. Hands down the best breakfast. Go early so you don't get stuck in the morning crowd. The omletes are delish but so are the pancakes! Don't forget to take a picture with the pig!
