The food at surf diner is pretty good. We had gone for dinner a few nights before and it was excellent. We decided to try breakfast and while the food was very good the service was horrible. We waited with 3 kids and didn't get a cup of coffee or a water for over 20 minutes. We are regulars in... More

This has been a favorite for us. Today we stopped in for a late breakfast. We were seated and waited quite a while for someone to take a drink order, once they brought our drinks we were forgotten. After 20 minutes waiting for a waitress, we asked who our waitress was and were told they would find out. No one... More

We ate dinner here on the first night and breakfast the next day. It was a little confusing that breakfast was more expensive, but I think that's because my son ate from the adult menu for breakfast. The food was delicious, the views amazing, we didn't eat outside, but the windows give you a great view up and down the... More

I absolutely love breakfast food so on the morning of my birthday, while we were staying at the Surfside Beach Resort, we decided to walk over to Surf Diner. We were greeted when we came in and seated at a table outside. It took awhile for a waitress to come to our table and when she did, she wasn't very... More

On the site of the famous Nibils at Surfside which moved to Myrtle Beach, Surf Diner has expanded the deck and added a bar. Breakfast I my favorite meal there but other meals are excellent too. Can't beat the view!
