“Food was good, prices were high”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

The food was very good but the prices were very high. The bill came to $40 for breakfast for three of us. French toast portion was small and you had to order bacon separately as it didn't come with anything ordered. Service was ok. Also, they do not take credit cards. They only accept cash but do have an ATM for you to use.

“Great pancakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We found out from reading literature in Congress Hall that this used to be a circular bar, which was converted to the pancake house. Pretty cool to know that once you step inside. Great pancakes, typical diner fare. Would visit again!

“Great place for breakfast!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Some places are constants in Cape May and this is one of them. For our family vacations for over 20 yrs, Uncle Bill's is one of our regular places to go for breakfast. No reservations, there is a wait, but we think it's worth it! Coffee refills are no charge! Always crowded. They do not take credit cards, but have an ATM on site.

“Not the best.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

My wife and I went to Cape May for a long weekend last fall and went to Uncle Bill's. The one in Wildwood, NJ is much better. The service was not he best, the food was fair. The coffee was almost boiling and not good. The waitress would only half fill your cup. Go up the street a short distance to the Ocean View, MUCH better in every way. We will not come back to this Uncle Bill's.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We had a situation with my wife's food for breakfast . They took it off the bill only after waitress failed to do it. Cooks should use hair nets. At its best, not worth the price.
