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

We made a reservation for 7:15 for a party of 8. We arrived right on time and we were quite impressed that our table was set and waiting for us when we arrived. It was very busy, with people waiting outside, so we were thankful that we had called earlier to make a reservation. Our waiter was excellent, very attentive.... More

We are very sorry that you were disappointed with your visit. Thankfully, overall mistakes do not happen often, unfortunately sometimes they do. We do appreciate your comments and feedback. Scott and I have both looked into the problem and it looks like this occurred on a Tuesday night. The issue will be addressed with the staff involved. Again, we apologize... More

ScoJo is a very well managed, busy restaurant in Surf City. The food is excellent. We had breakfast there 2 mornings in a row, and loved the food and the many choices. Even before you think you may want your coffee cup refreshed, the wonderful and friendly servers are there to refill your cup of delicious coffee. Besides the huge... More

I don't even know where to start. I had such a bad experience at this family restaurant. The goal of the staff was for our party of 12 to be finished as fast as possible so they could get the next seating in. They actually threatened to take our table away before we even got there and we actually arrived... More

We apologize that you felt rushed. That is not our goal; our goal is to provide efficient fast service. Sorry for the confusion with the text message, we use the BuzzTable app designed for restaurants to make the transitions between tables as smooth as possible for both restaurant and guests. As for the servers confused look, that will be addressed.... More
