Great Little Place

We have been passing this place by for years but decided to stop in for dinner--mostly because there was a parking space out front! The nachos appetizer was delicious, and I also enjoyed my dinner of fried oysters--which were quite good. I'll be back to try breakfast. Very small but nice atmosphere... read more

Ate here on a Friday afternoon for lunch. The waitstaff is all teenagers but they were polite and we got a seat in this small place right away. The seating is limited but the menu is pretty big. I had the Long Beach Island wrap. It was a pretty basic turkey wrap but the battered fries with Old Bay were... More

We have eaten here often for breakfast and lunch. Very nice selection, many standards and many creative selections. Quality and portions are good. Prices are reasonable. Serve quickly ( though you don't feel rushed). Very friendly atmosphere.

Breakfast is just ok. nothing great. Staff is attentive and caring which is very nice but I want the meal to equal the effort of the staff. The view is of LBI blvd or if your lucky to get a booth near the rear window a sand lot but if you look to each side you may see boats being... More

We had the pleasure of eating here for lunch in September, for it was one of the few remaining places open at this time of year on Long Beach Island. What a great meal. From start to finish, the food was delicious, the service attentive and caring, and the prices reasonable. You know a restaurant is wonderful when one meal... More

Stopped in for a late weekday off-season lunch after noticing how many cars were parked outside, despite that LBI was relatively empty. Easy to see that it's a locals favorite. I had not been here in perhaps 25 years and it's just the same and as good as it always was, wow. Nothing fancy about the place, but a nice... More

Great breakfast. Not your hohum menu. Lines are much more tolerable than other known places. View is much better. Service was efficient.

My father and I ate here for lunch at the end of August mid-week. The price was VERY reasonable and in that respect I give it a thumbs up. But we felt the fish seemed very dry, almost as if it was frozen rather than fresh. The real selling point of this place IMO is that it has easily one... More

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
