While visiting Ocean City, we ate breakfast at the Varsity Inn. It wasn't the first time and it definitely won't be the last. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is standard breakfast fare, but enough of a variety to satisfy anyone. I know that they also serve lunch, but I have never had lunch there. So,... More

You won't leave hungry, that's for sure. Ocean City memorabilia galore. Very interesting, but back to the food... Try the grilled cheese tomato soup and the chipped beef, not necessarily together (haha) Both are delicious. They also have very good breakfast sandwiches. Happily for locals, this restaurant is open year round. 7 am-2 pm. My new favorite breakfast spot.

One of my favorite places to dine in Ocean City, this restaurant is clean, fun and vibrant, with very good food and consistently excellent service. They serve breakfast late, so its possible to get whatever strikes you. My children had breakfast, and chose from their reasonable kids' menu. I had one of their lunch specials, a hot ciabatta sandwich, and... More

We had breakfast here on our final morning in Ocean City. We managed to get a large table for all of us (7 total) and we were waited on promptly. Our server was excellent and our food was also very good. Excellent coffee, great eggs, and very good french toast and pancakes! It came out pretty quickly considering how busy... More

They have a great Jersey tomato salad when the tomatoes are in. BLTs were excellent. Good dill pickles & staff was very attentive to drink refills & orders.

Great place for breakfast. Get there early cause this place fills up fast. Loved the outdoor seating at the counter.

My husband and I have a place in Ocean City, N.J. and frequent the Varsity Inn for breakfast and lunch. It is the best food in town. I always get the healthy morn omelet full of vegetables and light cheese served with a side of fresh fruit. My husband loves the french toast. We never leave the island without several... More

We visit Ocean City every year and eat at Varsity Inn at least twice each time. The French toast is amazing and I tasted the pound cake french toast this year and can't wait to go back for more. My husband got the famous tomato soup and grilled cheese and loved it. We took several quarts of soup home with... More

One of the best breakfast places around. You will wait, but it is worth it in this open air seating.
