Usually Breakfast

Normally we go to breakfast here, the location and the quickness to seat and food arrival are paramount. On weekends you will wait for a table if you arrive at peak times.

I have always enjoyed the food here! Breakfast and lunch mostly but in the off season it feels like this is the only place open with great food at night. Super greasy spoon But its tasty! Eggs benedict is awesome! The area really lacks a all night - all season diner like this one, its not up to par with... More

They are always friendly. The food is good - diner, so not gourmet, but never-the-less quite good and a good value. They have a huge menu and very friendly servers. The also have specials. it's nice they are there for all meals during the day and for in-between times!

There are many expensive restaurants in Cape May, N.J. that cater to tourists and some have excellent food. But if you want to go where the locals eat, this diner has fresh, good-tasting meals and you never leave hungry The portions are generous, the staff is friendly and the food is hot. They also have good pies and cakes if... More

We went in for a drink and food and decided to sit at the bar. The bartenders were friendly but didn't interact with the customers much. We ordered our drinks from the bartender but a waitress came to the bar to take our food order. I thought that was kinda strange. I had the happy hour wings 10 for $5.00... More

This diner is always on our list for breakfast. Many choices for all meals. The food and service are always very good and the prices are very reasonable. If you go around meal times you may have to wait but usually not very long to get in - good sign of good food.

This was a good find on our way home from shopping in Rio Grand area. (just past the parkway entrance) Service was OK, big portions, friendly staff and good diner food. Also, welcome inexpensive prices after an month at the Jersey Shore, but knew that before going.

My Husband and I went to the Rio Grande Diner this past weekend. The waitress was very attentive and my chicken was excellent, however, my husbands stuffed flounder was slightly over cooked. They also had a problem with their cash register, which caused everyone to pay cash... they couldn't accept credit cards. I thought they would post a sign to... More

Stopped in on the way to North Wildwood for breakfast. Place was busy, but was seated upon arrival and the service was great. Not much of a wait for beverages or food. No waiting for refills of coffee or tea, food was hot and plenty of it. Very surprised with the amount of bacon slices received, usually get 2 or... More
