We've eaten in quite a few of the hotel restaurants in Wildwood Crest over the years, mostly for breakfast. The Royal Grille is hands-down the very best of all of them. There is no other place that combines gorgeous views of the beach, delicious homemade fresh food, and cutting edge decor. We ate breakfast there two days straight and enjoyed... More

They were really hopping, but got everyone seated promptly and the kitchen was blazing fast. Food was very good, service was super friendly, ocean views, and both hotel and restaurant are much nicer inside than it appears from the outside. Prices in line with other shore places. We'll be back!

The only reason I did not give the restaurant 5 starts is because we were told they were out of crab meat at the time we were already at the table and starting with the house bread. There are about 40% of the menu is based on that. It's spoiled my mood pretty bad :-(

We were in Wildwood for 6 days and had breakfast here 3 of those days. Fresh fruit, muffins, and an assortment of omelets, pancakes, waffles, French toast. My favorite is the blueberry muffin. The granola with yogurt and fresh fruit was a hit as well.

A great spot and very good food. Bring your own wine and they provide the glass. I had the flounder stuffed with crab meat and it was perfect.

We were visiting from Florida and had breakfast here...Beautiful restaurant & location...the beach view was very relaxing & the food was delicious! The Island fruit bowl was refreshing... granola was homemade & delicious! Very nice experience & would definitely come back.

We dined at the cafe for both breakfast and lunch when we stay at the Port Royal. The food is very good and served quickly. The staff is very polite and socialble.

The portions were big, the prices weren't too high, the view is amazing, and the food was great. I highly recommend the Royal Grille Cafe, also because it is conveniently located in the Port Royal Hotel, which is one of the best hotels in Wildwood Crest.
