Great Breakfast

This was our favorite breakfast spot during our stay in Brigantine. Friendly staff, clean restaurant, good food and inexpensive! We would definitely return.

New owner, same great food! Had heard the Den had a new owner, our group of 6, our 3rd yr in a row, dining here, wondered how it would be. Much to our relief-food was the same-delicious & generous, fantastic staff. The MAIN change...the decor has been updated, streamlined & much improved! Still very beachy, but without all the kitsch!

We visited the Pirate's Den for dinner last week, during our week's vacation in beautiful Brigantine. 2 early bird specials and 2 kid's meals still came to more than 50 bucks. I thought the portions were very small and I had to track down a busboy to get a few glasses of water for the table. I understand that new... More

Sadly we didn't even get to the food before we got up and walked out! It was about 3pm on Sunday and no crowds in site when we arrived at the Pirate's Den. There were a few customers seated out front but no one inside so the server was FAR from being busy and hurried by other customers. We walked... More

This gem of a restaurant sits at the top of Brigantine Avenue. I used to bring all my friends there for Sunday breakfast in the 90s. The food was always good and especially the omelets. I took my family this week and seemingly nothing had changed. Even the chef was the same and my swiss/spinach omelet was terrific. The food... More

I know that breakfast reigns supreme at this quaint Jersey Shore hidden gem, but I'll let everybody else give 5 star breakfast reviews. I'm here to give a 5 star review for the Early Bird specials. Start with bread & butter plus soup or salad, followed by a side of veggies, pasta, or twice baked potato (get potato!). Wide range... More

I went here on the advice of friends and must say the food was delicious. I ordered stuffed flounder and it tasted great. The service was prompt and courteous and the price was acceptable. I also went during breakfast time and had pancakes and pork roll. Again, even with a packed room, service was quick and the food was perfect.

New owners have gotten rid of most of the kitsch that made this place unique, and portions seem slightly smaller, but quality, and staff, remain the same. Our go to place for breakfast, just wish they had better coffee!
