Everytime we go to Beach Haven we have breakfast at Uncle Wills. The service is excellent and the food comes out so fast it's unbelievable. The food itself is really good. We will keep going every year, it's a tradition!

This was our first time here and we loved it! We only chose to eat here because the wait at another close by establishment was over an hour and we were hungry for breakfast. We were seated in 10 minutes, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was great! Love the potatoes and the coffee! So, thank you for a... More

The food is as good as anyplace on or near LBI... creative, excellent dishes. The food is fresh and well chosen. Friendly staff. A great source of local information. Reasonable pricing. One of the best choices for eating on LBI. The owners, Tom and Margie, are dedicated to providing quality food and service. An enjoyable place all around. "Uncle Will"... More

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
