A friend and I were just spending the night on Long Beach Island at the Holiday Inn. The Stafford Restaurant and Grille is attached to the hotel. We went down for breakfast and ordered omelettes ...The omelettes were very generous portions and we had more than enough to eat. The toast came out burned but the server was more than... More

Went for breakfast with family while visiting Jersey shore. After spending a week in Surf City on vacation we were glad to find a good place to eat without spending a lot of money. There are a lot of good places in/near Surf City for breakfast.. but they are always crowded and usually have waiting lines. Diner is a few... More

We ate breakfast 2 mornings while on a mini-vacation to visit family. The wait staff was amazing! They went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and to make sure our kids were well taken care of. They were friendly and talkative. The breakfast food was also very good. We would highly recommend if you are in the area.

I went there at 5 a.m. and enjoyed a very good diner breakfast. Service and food were both good, and the music on the sound system was excellent!

Everytime I am in the area, I keep coming back to this diner. The food is great . . . like home cooking, and the portions are enormous! I can never finish, and always go home with a "doggie bag." The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great. You should be able to find what you want on their... More

Stopped there yesterday evening for a quick bite. It is a very nice diner on the way to LBI and very close to Southern Ocean County Hospital. All orders looked great, fries were hot, and service was good for how busy they were. I'd definitely go there again if I'm in the area.

The diner like atmosphere here was almost clinical...very uncomfortable. The bar was more cozy. The appetizers were ok, but the dinners were cold and the seafood was not fresh! The bartender was friendly, but seemed to be otherwise occupied with their phone!

If you like really good diner food in a nice atmosphere, Atafford Restaurant is a great place to get real comfort food like Mom used to make. Nothing too fancy, just good food served hot and the bill won't make much of a dent in your wallet.
