always good

My husband grew up coming to Wildwood ever summer and the first time he brought me here I thought it was weird. Turkey dinner at the beach? But he dreams about it and it is usually our first meal of our trip. The décor is dated but that is part of the places charm. Every year for the last... read more

It was a hot day in the summer of 1978, when I arrived in Wildwood, New Jersey, ready to start work at my very first real job. I would receive my very first paycheck ever, from Groff's Restaurant, and my very first boss was the man himself, Earl Groff. I was only 17 years old, and had never had any... More

Groff's has been around for years and continues to serve quality comfort food. Prices are reasonable and the location is great.

My mother does not eat seafood and is always going to our favorite restaurant so I decided to let her choose her favorite,Groffs. I had read the reviews so I knew what I was in for. The turkey was tasty, the filling very good, the vegetables tasted like they were canned. I grew up on canned vegetables so I guess... More

Groff's is a great family oriented restaurant. I love the tradition of Groff's being our first meal once we arrive. The staff is friendly, the food is good home cooking and the pies are delicious. It used to be so popular that people would be lined up at the doors waiting to get in. Now not so much, I guess... More

Groff's never changes, and that is a very good thing! We can always count on a consistently good meal. Prices can't be beat. Homey atmosphere. Always save room for a slice of banana cream pie for dessert. Of course we'll be back next year.

If you'd like to take a break from the fancy/expensive restaurants while you are staying in Wildwood, NJ, Groff's is the place to go. If you like home cooking with big portions and friendly service, you will enjoy Groff's. You will find hearty dinners like turkey & fixin's, pot roast & baked chicken as staples on the menu. Home made... More

Someone in our party had today's special, chicken pot pie which looked homemade and tasted delicious. We were also celebrating our grandson going in the marines. We shared some nice conversation with the staff who also has a son in the military already. We also enjoyed the black bottom desert. The server was also very courteous and attentive.
