stopped here many times for pizza, but wanted a sit down dinner. Linguini was delicious, Mom had eggplant parm, and daughter had a perfect cheese steak. The place was crowded ,but room enough for grandma wheelchair. Beautiful ocean/beach view while we ate. Everything was nice, clean, comfy. Prices... read more

This is always our First stop, the Hot Spot Diner near Schellinger Ave offers a deck that we always eat on. Covered deck, with a nice view of the ocean in the background, I have been visiting this place for almost 30 years. Love the pizza and fries. Staff is a little slow on the deck, but worth the wait.

they offer a wide variety of food for adults as well as children. The pizza is great and my grandchildren ordered a steak dinner and shared it. They ate every bit of it. The service was pleasant and we like that it's right on the boardwalk.

Their food includes breakfast at lunch time- covers those of us who don't get up early on vacations as well as those of us ready for lunch. We were about half omelets and half sandwiches and everyone was satisfied with their meal. Sausage and Pepper sandwiches were great, as was the service. Quick, clean spot to eat.

Best gyros on the boards! Don't forget a side of fries loaded with cheese sauce, bacon pieces and ranch drizzle. Yum!

They had good food and good service. It was a little tight in there. I have to say that I did have one of the best Belgian Waffles I've ever had, though; and, it was served with fresh strawberries. I like mine with honey instead of syrup and they actually had real honey! I didn't have to deal with those... More

This is a quaint little diner. We stopped off season, so we were literally the only patrons in the diner. Waitress was lovely but it took 20 minutes to get a belgian waffle. No worries we were not in a rush. The coffee was absolutely terrible. It tasted like watered down Maxwell House. The waffle was good - dusted with... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner during my vacation, mainly because the smell from the sausage sandwich was pulling me in. I had the hot sausage sandwich and my friend had the cheesesteak. I think I won with my choice. First off, the sandwich was bigger than I expected, so that was a good start. I nice spicy sausage topped... More
