The waitresses are awesome and always with a smile on their face. Always go with my daughter for breakfast when visiting her in Neptune Beach and the food is always perfect!

I love this place. I try to order something different every time, but the eggs benedict are always my favorite with crispy home fries! Staff is friendly no matter how busy-and on top of the refills! I never saw the bottom of my coffee cup!

We are regulars at the Beach Dinner in Atlantic Beach. They are open for breakfast and lunch only-great concept ! Solidly prepared breakfast. Always fresh ingredients. Good coffee. Ok on tea (I'm somewhat picky about my tea) Lunch menu is simple with the regular diner items. Reasonably priced and good for a budget. Very friendly staff! On weekends, go early!... More

Me and the hubs had the crab and shrimp omelette. Just fantastic. Had to wait but it moves fast. Staff are so friendly. True old beach diner decor.

This was a really cute little place. The service was great and really quick despite being busy. Overall the food was great. The French toast was maybe a tad overdone but it didn't bother me. It was still great and they know how to cook some bacon! I will definitely go back.

It checks all relevant boxes. The food is pretty darn good (eggs Benedict is great) and the service is spot on diner style. There is likely a wait during peak breakfast hours but the line moves quickly and it is worth it. Hard to come up with a better alternative.

Average breakfast with wait. If you are an early riser economical breakfast choices. Like most diners in Jacksonville NOT open for dinner.
