THis was the first time we had a chance to go to the Dockside Diner. We were not fortunate to get in for breakfast( which is always lined up outside.) But from Memorial Day to Labor Day they are open for dinner. Our party of three ventured in and were pleasantly surprised. There is not an extensive menu for dinner... More

Love that you can get fresh fruit instead of home fries..I had a veggie omelet..fresh fruit..what a great way to start the day..and the sun sets right behind them in the evening..what an amazing view in the evening. However, I believe they are open only for breakfast and lunch.. Excellent service..

Been going to LBI for 30 years and never stopped here to eat. Near our motel so we could walk over for breakfast. Wonderful surprise. Really good food that wasn't overpriced. I definitely will be eating there again next time I visit.

We've been wanting to stop at the Dockside for breakfast based on the lines in the morning. We got the chance this morning, and there was only a five minute wait. We ate inside which is quite cramped. Breakfast was pretty standard - I had a cheese and onion omelet, which was ok. My husband had two eggs sunny side... More

We were staying in a B&B that provided breakfast but we were dying to try this adorable restaurant on the bay. Hurricane Sandy caused several feet of water to ruin the interior but it is back with a fresh fun interior and great breakfast food. All of it was great...pancakes, french toast, eggs. We are a breakfast family so we... More

What a great place to go for breakfast or lunch. We went to the Dockside as we were leaving LBI after vacation and it was well-worth the wait. It's a very popular place so be prepared to wait during the summer but expect a great meal. We had breakfast and the menu has standards as well as very creative choices.... More

Nestled right by the docks on the bay by the beach haven sailing club, this diner is a must for families on vacation! Their menu offers outstanding variety for breakfast and everything is absolutely delicious... Classic diner sized portions. Their pancakes are really fantastic- supper light and fluffy and their omelettes were a big hit with my friends... Everyone really... More

This is the definition of what a classic, small diner is supposed to be, with the added benefit of being beachside. Customers can BYOB. Service was excellent, nice selection of conventional breakfast and lunch offers with some interesting additions included. Decoration is "cute diner". This a good bookend (as in other end of Long Beach Island) to Mustache Bill's Diner... More

We've eaten breakfast here many times and the portions are more than ample. They get very crowded, especially on weekends in season. Lunch sandwiches are excellent too. A nice thing is that you can also order breakfast all day. They don't offer 'hokey' breakfast specials that lure you in with cheap prices only to gouge for drink prices, like competitors... More

What a find. Great views of the beach and a nice and friendly atmosphere. The omelette was great, my husband loved his creamed chipped beef and the coffee was great. We need more places like this!!
