Family of four went here recently for breakfast and were satisfied. It was not a 'wow' or amazing experience - but a good solid breakfast. On the positive side...The OJ was wonderful - fresh squeezed, tangy and not too sweet. The coffee (for 2 at least) came out in a carafe leaving us free to take refills as needed. The... More

Have been going to the LBI Pancake house for over 20 years. Always very good & dependable. Before and after the make over. Looks great now too. All the pancakes are winners.

Since we knew it gets crowded, we called ahead of time and did not have to wait :-) The staff is excellent. Young kids with lots of energy and smiles. The food was excellent, yummy crispy bacon. They only accept cash, so bring cash. Was there on 4th of July and they were open and busy! Great place. Awesome fresh... More

Went there for breakfast, my husband had an omelette and I had an egg sandwich. My husband kept sayin mmm...this is the best omelette I ever had...my sandwich was very good as well. The problem was the long wait for the food, maybe they need more people in the kitchen? Because I don't think is normal to wait almost half... More

We stopped in here recently due to some pretty good reviews on T.A. There were a line of people outside the door, so we figured it had to be good. We waited about 30-40 minutes to be seated. Luckily it was a nice morning, so we didn't mind the wait. We were seated at a wobbly table. I mention this... More

The food was good but it took an hour to get Eggs Benedict and some French toast. The Hollandaise dressing was OK just as was the overall experience. The Decor is fun and there is plenty of parking as it isn't in the busiest area of the island. We tried this place since it was on the restoration show with... More

Thank you for your comments. You picked a great weekend to visit LBI. The weather was beautiful and the crowds were out. We pride ourselves on delivering a great meal with great service--although that can be a challenge on a Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. I can give you a little secret that your wait time will be far shorter... More

My wife and I have wanted to stop at this place for years and finally had the chance to stop in. We came here for Mother's Day and had a great breakfast. This restaurant was recently updated due to Hurricane Sandy by Restaurant Impossible. After watching that show, we had to stop in and really glad we did. We all... More

We stopped in for breakfast and it wasn't crowded (~ 4 other tables had customers). This is a cash only restaurant (strike 1). They do offer an ATM, but its out of operation (strike 2). You can order a soda, but the soda machine wasn't working either (strike 3). You could be the customer next to us and have your... More

Our favorite breakfast spot closed so we thought we give the LBI Pancake House a try. We figured Robert Irvine must have turned them around. I got a short stack of blueberry pancakes. The were the worst I have ever had. They were so gummy I could not eat them. The blueberries were frozen and had no flavor. My husband... More

I've been to this island over the summer and always wanted to come over the winter just to see what it's like without the crowds. Not many restaurants open after Labor Day. This is a very good stop for breafast. Loved the pancakes. Liked that the OJ was fresh squeezed and toppings like blueberries were fresh. Service was good. Prices... More
