“Good but has gone down hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

There are many breakfast options at the beach. I've spent many weekend morning waiting for breakfast at beach diner because it was worth the wait. When the financial crisis hit and economy shifted, Beach Diner started to go down because they began to buy lower quality food. I have a friend in the wholesale food distribution business so I have some background towards my assertion. With the number of breakfast resturants at the beach, some maintained the higher quality or we knew we could get a breakfast slightly cheaper at a competitor.

We eat here but it is usually 4th or 5th on the list today.

“Favorite Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

This is my favorite Diner at the beach. Great food and prices. Always delicious! Gets very busy on weekends and you will usually have to wait. Staff has been there for years and they are all very friendly.

“Debbie K”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

My family of 6 had brunch at the Beach Diner and it was fantastic. The coffee was the best restaurant coffee that we have ever had! I am usually not too fond of restaurant coffee, but this was terrific. We all had breakfast and it was all home cooked and it was really great! We were all complimenting the bacon....it was delicious! We all enjoyed everything!! The staff are very friendly and attentive! Our waiter kept our coffee cups filled, and he made sure that we always had what we needed. We highly recommend the Beach Diner! We will be back again when we visit Altantic Beach.

“Only open for breadfast and lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Breakfast is good, lunch not so much. We really need a good old-fashioned diner at this end (Atlantic and Neptune) of the beach...
