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

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

Went on a Wednesday morning just a short wait for a table for two. I had the waffle special with egg whites and bacon. Very yummy! My husband had a whole wheat waffle ( not a typical find on most menus). Our food was delivered quickly and was delicious. It was very reasonably priced and our server was excellent. The... More

Great menu. They offer a variety of breakfast and lunch entrees. The waffles were perfect, as were the sides of sausage and potatoes. Daily specials offered such as lox and egg omelet. No reservations. Long lines on weekends....but worth the wait.

My kids could not say enough about the glazed donut egg sandwich and nutella banana french toast. Perfect eggs and hash browns. Make sure you send someone down early to put your name on the list. There is always a wait and it is worth it.

The food is great! The service is extremely competent, they know their menu backwards and forwards (and it's a big menu) and make everyone feel like a 'regular'.

Location: Right in the middle of surf city. Easy to get to. Atmosphere: Great little breakfast place. It's a little small but they optimize with the layout of the tables. It is very clean. Service: Outstanding service. We got off to a late start with my kids and called to see if they would let us put our name down.... More

The bun was too much, so I opted to each the delicious grilled portabello mushroom stuffed with lump crabmeat on my plate. Additionally, I opted for to upgrade with the sweet potato fries - they were good and worth it. Our visit here was on night one, of a short wedding weekend. Would have liked to go back for breakfast... More
