This was probably the worst place for breakfast ever. The pancakes were very heavy and dry and served with the cheapest syrup money can buy. Coffee was old. The only reason for two stars is our server who was very sweet. Cannot pay me to go back.

The staff was very accommodating to our needs (3 children who are 3 years old or younger!) and the food was delivered quickly, fresh, with a smile! My 3 year old boy who usually does not eat anything we order for him devoured his pancakes and fruit and that's saying something!!! We used to visit often when we lived in... More

Perks has the best breakfast and lunch menu around, with food perfectly prepared and an attentive and caring staff. All this topped off by the owner, Aristotle, who has just the right combination of hands-on involvement and giving his employees the tools to succeed. Great environment to have brunch, and though it would succeed anywhere, being at the Jersey Shore... More

Stopped in for lunch and was warmly greeted by the hostess and seated. Our waitress was very sweet and took our orders promptly. Our meals were very good and more than enough. It was a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere and we will definitely be returning when in Point Pleasant.

Food is awesome - huge portions & a great selection. I ordered the Jersey girl salad, it was filled with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and an awesome raspberry dressing on top…. DELICIOUS was an understatement. The atmosphere was so inviting and the staff was so helpful. Cannot wait to go back!!!

The best breakfast place in town! Generous portions, great home fries and bottomless cups of coffee. Great lunch menu too. My fav is the homemade chicken salad. By far the best I've ever had. The owner makes it himself. His mothers receipe. Great beachy atmosphere and friendly staff of local kids.
