“Fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

My wife and I travel to MB two or three times a year.... The Van Dyke is a MUST!

Food is great, service and prices are right
But,most significantly, manager is a real professional! Known him for years, yet don't know his name , ( from Philly and drives a Harley ) He is so thoughtful , shakes your hand and makes certain that you have what you ordered promptly ....can't say enough about him.... Business needs people like him..,,

“Great Food and People Watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Loved this restaurant. It seemed like it was german themed with the decor and the staff uniforms. Situated in a great location in the middle of Lincoln Rd., this restaurant is great for people watching and enjoying the morning, afternoon or evening. I ordered the Omelet and the servings were gigantic!

Staff was very attentive and I would definitely come back here again during my next visit!

“Funplace to sit outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Situated on Lincoln Rd. in the heart of Miami Beach. Nice place to sit outside if not too hot. Service was marginal but the waitress was friendly but the restaurant was pretty busy. Food was decent though not exceptional. We selected the spot primarilarily for its location.

“"another one bites the dust"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Use to be my favorite place on Lincoln Rd to eat. Unfortunately - no more! Place was half empty, yet we could not get normal service. Waiter was wondering somewhere, Hot food arrived cold, salad didn't make it at all, kids order got mixed up...... Lots of fun! Another beautiful think: plates and leftovers are getting removed from the table while we eating and without asking! .... Looking for new favorite place.

“Grab a table & people watch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is one of the best eateries on Lincoln Road. It's location on this pedestrianized strip is perfect for taking some time out to just watch the world go by.
The menu and service is good (and much better than other similar spots on 'the road') but the real draw is the location.
Take some time out from the excellent shopping on Lincoln Road to sample the eclectic SoBe lifestyle as it passes by.
