We ate breakfast at Starving Artist for the first time, after years of going to Day's for ice cream. They share the same covered outdoor space. On a summer Saturday, there was a bit of a wait, but the maître d' was accurate about how long we'd wait. Try to eat in the "outdoors" area. You are well-sheltered from sun... More

This restaurant is tucked away on a side street but once you discover it, you will keep going back! It is also part of Day's Ice Cream Shop. There is indoor and outdoor seating and in the summer there can be quite a wait! But the wait is worthwhile because the food is very good. There is something for everyone.... More

We have enjoyed the hospitality and delicious food at Starving Artist for many years. We are always welcomed warmly and seated promptly. The food is consistently wonderful--from the divine Avocado Chicken Salad to the traditional cheeseburger. And those onion rings! On our way there for another yummy lunch!

I would highly recommend coming here on a cooler summer day and sitting outside on the patio area. The food is decent, slightly better than average, and everyone can find something to order on their extensive menu. It is a great place to come for breakfast if you want a sit-down meal, as there are few options for breakfast in... More

This place is perfect for a small and quick lunch. My husband got one of their deli meat sandwiches and I got their salad special: Pear and Walnut Salad- both were delicious and were portioned decently. The price was fabulous, with tip we paid $26. We came around 2:00 and had a ten minute wait. The staff seemed overly busy... More

Great place for breakfast! While there is seating inside, if it's nice, sit outside, wonderful atmosphere

Any season, the asparagus omelette hits the spot! With crisp rye toast and iced tea, I'm ready to go! My fiancée enjoyed the Country omelette with pumpernickel toast, a not-so-common find. The view into the butterfly garden added a bit of whimsy.

Whenever I'm in the mood for great pancakes I make sure to go to the Starving Artist in Ocean Grove. The bananas and walnuts are fresh and these pancakes melt in your mouth when they come right off the griddle. They close at 3:00pm so I really never got to eat a late lunch or early dinner here, but I... More

After reading some of the reviews, decided to try this place. It's nice that you can sit outside and the staff is very friendly. As for the food - I found it to be ok but not that special.
