About
2017 Marks Tom's 23rd year as the proprietor of Uncle Will's. In 1996, Margie came to Beach Haven. She worked as a hostess the summer of 1996 and soon after Tom & she started dating. They married in 1999 and have been working side by side at Uncle Will's ever since. Along with the ever growing and changing Uncle Will's staff/family, they have maintained the original charm of Uncle Will's & have added some updates (including dinner in 2007!) That have helped Uncle Will's to be a mainstay in town & a special place for families to return to each year when they vacation on LBI. When Sandy hit in October, 2012, Uncle Will's was flooded by over four feet of water. It was a sad & devastating event

First, there is NO social distancing at outdoor tables. Luckily they were not full when we were there (October) so we were able to sit two tables away from other diners. Food is good, but service is inconsistent. We arrived for lunch about 45 minutes...before closing. There was only one other table. Took 20 minutes for waitress to come take our order after we were seated. 25 minutes for food to come after ordering. Then 20 minutes to get the check. The pandemic makes for unprecedented times and we understand that, but we were one of only two tables. The people at the other table also noted the delay. The next day we went for breakfast, service (with the same waitress) was quick and attentive. The food was always good.More

We go to Uncle Wills just about every week. The food is great with lots of choices and the ability to “mix and match” the items of your meal. Kids love the pig theme. Wait staff is usually terrific. Part of the LBI experience.

We were able to get take out breakfast that was just as delish as if we sat down. Also, the lobster salad sandwich on the new lunch menu is insanely good. Had to share.

This is my favorite place to eat. The staff is always attentive and friendly. I was happy to know that they were open for delivery and pickup. We ordered takeaway and the service was very fast and the food was delicious. It could not have...been a better experience during these crazy times.More

Great breakfast menu and now maybe an even better lunch menu! Ordered takeout today and it was delivered very quickly and the food was hot and delicious. Uncle Will's has figured out how to service their patrons during these times. Can't wait for dinner to...be offered again. Thanks Uncle Wills!More

Prices in season do not reflect what you get - although the staff were very friendly and welcoming, it wasn’t worth the price.More

So sorry about the above post about Austria; I have no idea how that got posted under Uncle Will's restaurant when it wasn't part of my review. Just ignore it!
