This is a great place, good value, service and food. Its a family style dining area. Get there early even in the off season.

Went for breakfast with friends, and was underwhelmed. My skillet was bland, so I salted it, and then it was salty and bland. I hated the coffee, and when I told the checkout person, they argued with me, and said they had been serving the same coffee for 20 years, and everyone LOVED it. Than he charged me for it,... More

You won't find a better meal on the island! The options are many! The food plentiful and excellent! The owners are fully involved, truly making the customers feel welcome, and the help hard working and efficient. Yes, the wait can be long, especially during the summer season. People are willing to wait for excellence! We visit before and after the... More

ScoJo's has fed Surf City regulars for decades. Its breakfast and lunch crowds line up for the more than ample servings. We've recently started eating dinner there as well--and we've never been disappointed. Early Bird Specials are available, with specials like chicken pot pie that remind you of your grandmother's. Plus, they're accompanied with soup, salad, a beverage and dessert.... More

While this is not haute cuisine, they do not pretend to be more than they are ... you'll get good food for a reasonable price ... it's fresh and they are always busy ... a VERY good sign

I recently had lunch at ScoJo's in Surf City. There is a reason why this restaurant is always busy. The food is very good, prices are affordable and the service is great. We have been dining at this restaurant for many years for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The menu is extensive and there are always specials... More

We have driven past this place many times and always wanted to try them out. We were here on a Sunday morning for breakfast and arrived around 10 am. There was a wait and was told that a table for 7 would take approx. 35-45 min. 65 min later our table was ready. After 45 min, I went inside several... More

We would like to thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the food. Wait times are only an estimate, we would never want to make a table that is here rushed. I remember your party and the table we had available for you to be sat at, their check was paid, but they did not leave. Once... More

Dined here twice during LBI visit. Service was fast and friendly even though restaurant was very crowded. Menu selection was huge and portions were more than adequate.

We live across the bridge and frequent this place regularly. We like to go late morning while my husband can still get breakfast (they serve it until 2 pm!) and I prefer having an early lunch. Either way, both breakfast and lunch are fantastic. Dinner is great too when we're in the mood for some "home cooking" outside the house,... More

ScoJo's consistently serves delicious food. My wife and I have been regular summer breakfast and lunch customers over the past several years. ScoJo's has a large menu and many daily specials. If there is something that you want that is not on the menu, the restaurant will do its best to oblige. The fishwich hoagie is a favorite of mine... More
