Great Value and Service

It's nice to eat at a good quality family restaurant where you don't need to break the bank. My wife had the beef, vegetable and rice soup and Turkey dinner that was savory. My Ahi Tuna was delicious. The food is fresh with nice size portions, hard to find anywhere!! Byob is a bonus, too!

Ordered coconut shrimp, fried clam strips, and sweet potato fries. There always seems to be a line here so we were anticipating some great food. Sweet potato fries were soggy and limp. We had takeout and were on our way or I would have turned back for a return. Coconut shrimp were okay but the clam strips had way too... More

We were ready for lunch and saw several people going here so we said let's try it. Very popular place with the locals too. Comfort food great service and very inviting. My fiend and I had cup of potato soup and egg salad sandwich. Was just the right amount for lunch. I liked the shirts the servers were wearing and... More

Great spot to enjoy a dinner with your whole family. We made a reservation for 6:45pm for 4 people and were seated right away. The place was slammed, but the staff was 100% on their game, flipping tables for the next group and running around taking orders. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Country fried steak was a... More

Great family restaurant. One of the best places to eat on Long Beach Island. We've been going here for 11 years and have never had a bad meal.

This place is terrific.The kind of diner that gives NJ its great rep. Huge selection and it's all good. Plus the service is great and the prices unbelievable. Your trip to LBI HAS to include a visit here. One of our favorites.

A busy decent table fare and a place open year around. You could wait, but they are efficient, so you may think because a lot of people are outside waiting, that it will be a long time...but it's not as long as it looks. A lot a tasty egg dishes but the pancakes are a bit lacking in flavor. The... More

The perfect place for a beach breakfast! You're in and out quickly, the coffee's hot and good, the omelets are fluffy and filled with delicious and interesting toppings, the servers are friendly and efficient and know not to make too much conversation early in the morning, and it's walkable from a lot of places in Shipbottom and Surf City.

Our visit on a summer Friday was busy but service was very good with large portions and a huge menu. More consistent with a neighborhood diner, a cool shore ambiance mixed with a home cooking selection list that covered all food groups. Better known for breakfasts , our dinners consisted of many home style plates including meatloaf, coconut shrimp, crab... More

We usually go to ScoJo's for breakfast but we have been for lunch/dinner as well. Everything has always been amazing. Never disappointed with the food, better than most other places for breakfast especially! Certainly worth any wait that there is and now I can check in from home on an app and not have a long wait. I do not... More
