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

The wait is long but worth it! Pancakes, eggs, oatmeal, yogurt parfaits. Extensive menu. Food comes out FAST and coffee is great. Never disappointed!

A breakfast favorite that is packed every morning only to turn into fine dining in the evening is a nice trick. The fish was fresh and perfectly prepared. The service is efficient and relaxed. What a nice experience.

Sunday breakfast. Short wait off season. Tables close together, service a bit short with customer, food kinda thrown at you. Very interesting—waitress asked hubby if he wanted more hot water but did not offer me more coffee. Food was fine

I don't normally eat flour and sugar. Treated myself to Will's banana pancakes and it was soooooo worth it. Great atmosphere, whimsical decor, nice service.

Gotta admit it really says something about the restaurants in Beach Haven when Uncle Will's Pancake House is rated number 2 don't you think-but then Barry's Do-Me-A-Flavor is number 6 come to think of it.

Beach Haven Has Great Restaurants! And we love Barry's also....Barry and Nicole are great business owners and we love being right across the street!

Well run restaurant that feeds an enormous amount of hungry people without feeling rushed. Can get a bit noisy but you really don't want to have conversation when your food is served- it's so good. Families seem to have a great time eating, a lot...More

Cant beat the old timer who has been around for a long time. Great selection for breakfast and even cater for the oldies with less resources. Service is always good and reliable food.

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!
