Great food, cramped booths.

The food was great. I had Eggs Rancheros (Juevos Rancheros anywhere else) and they were delicious with a huge portion. A friend had the berry waffle, which had fresh berries piled all over the waffle. Crowded and for a good reason.

This has to be the best breakfast spot at the shore. BIG food and over 200 omelets. They have everything from pancakes and french toast to awesome omelets and home fries to die for. Try the German potato pancakes or the breakfast quesadillas. They are fabulous!

This restaurant has so many options, and everything is good. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. It's a bit tight on the inside and always packed - but there is a reason for that! I had a breakfast sandwich and it was unlike any other - there must have been a pound of bacon on it - very large portions... More

Wow, What a great breakfast!. It is the biggest menu I have ever seen. They have 226 different omelets. Anything you could want they have it. Food was outstanding and there is no way to leave hungry here. I would go to Mariners Cove every day if I lived nearby. This is why NJ has the best diners in the... More

Drove up to the restaurant and was very leery...the outside is worn and run down. Hungry and on a time schedule we took a chance. So grateful we did! The inside is charming wood and boat decor. The waite staff were friendly and welcoming even though it was clearly very busy. We started with the Coveaccino...their signature cold coffee frappe.... More

This breakfast place made its name with its huge portions. The food it's self is just ok. Service is usually quick and friendly. The problem is this place is in serious need of a deep cleaning, it really is dirty, we won't be back.

Huge, huge selection (over 200 omelets). Portions are tremendous...you will no doubt be bringing food home. Everything is excellent...you may wait a few minutes to be seated but it is definitely worth it. Service is very friendly and you will not wait long for your food. We had an omelet with kielbasa...very tasty. Definitely worth the trip!!

HUGE menu with the largest omelet selection I've ever seen. Very large portions and no sharing, so be prepared to stay a while or take home a very large doggy bag. Food is always very fresh and tasty...not a place for dieters.

I always try to get here when I am home for a visit. I've tried so many of the omelets and they are all so delicious! Way too much food though - I find myself wishing for the option of smaller portions.
