“Surf Diner for Breakfast!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I very much enjoyed my breakfast at Surf Diner. I watched and listened to the ocean waves while I ate. The meal came quickly and the service was great. The bacon was cooked perfectly. Not limp and not burned...just right. And the music!!! I LOVE sixties music so this meal was wonderful in many ways. I will be back!!

“Nice Diner on the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We ate here for lunch one day on our vacation. The menu had a variety of foods - everything from seafood to salads to sandwiches. Our waitress and the other staff were all very friendly. We were seated right away, and we loved eating on the patio near the beach. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. We will eat here again the next time we are in Surfside.

Great location to SBR and we had very nice breakfasts with a great view of the pier/ocean. Short wait for food after ordering and plenty of staff to cover diners.

“Absolutely Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I've been to this restaurant 3 times, once for breakfast and twice for dinner. Exceptional food both times. The shrimp and grits are great and the omelets are huge. This great little place has a small bar with top shelf liquour, good selection of beer and something on the menu for everyone. The atmosphere is casual and there is outdoor seating overlooking the beach/ocean. On my latest visit, we finished our meal close to closing time and you would have thought the waitstaff would be anxious for us to finish up and go. Just the opposite, the waitress came to our table right at closing and asked us had we had their keylime pie and assured us it was wonderful. So she was happy to serve us dessert even though it was late. Very impressed with the service, friendliness and food. Get there early, there is always a crowd waiting to get in!
