There is always a line and I am not sure why. Maybe they have a captive market. Have never been a great fan but it is a must. They only take cash like most places here. They have a big menu and the service is good. Food is nothing more than typical diner food. We much prefer Kelly's right down... More

We wanted to visit Mustache Bills after we found out it was on an episode of Diners, Drive ins, and Dives. It looked like such a small place and we figured it would take forever to get a seat, but it was bigger than it looked and didn't take long at all. Service was quick and friendly and the food...

Still the absolute best place to eat on LBI. Friendly service by Tyler and the gang and food to die for. The clam strips and scallops are highly recommended and we love the south land salad--large enough to share. The joint is mobbed always--try a late lunch on Thursdays. Oh and the clam chowder is magnificent. Wish they were open... More

The food was great, I had the cinnamon and raisin French toast. The coffee was really good and the service was excellent. Great place to get breakfast.

If you are looking for a good breakfast while at the beach, this is an option. I thought the prices were a little high for a diner, but the wait staff was wonderful, portions more than ample. I would probably try a different spot the next time I travel there, but would also consider going back.

After a disastrous dinner what a refreshing visit! They were accommodating to our need for a great and GF meal. The tomatoes alongside my omelet weren't those anemic things you usually get... The whole thing was delish! Thanks for making us feel welcome at the height of your busy season!

We were recommended to go here for the cute small diner atmosphere and fun pancakes for our kids. Other than the cute designs my husband and I could barely eat more than one bite of our eggs. I had the Dutch country breakfast with cinnamon raisin French toast (just ok), scrambled eggs (inedible), and bacon (mediocre). My husband had three... More
