This place was packed out the door. I was by myself so I walked in to ask about the wait, because I was alone, I was seated immediately. Server was prompt, listened well and brought out my omelet fast. It was good, homefries were also tasty but a bit greasy. Coffee was only fair. Not a quiet, relaxing place to... More

Good food, good size portions and decent prices. Very busy in the summer months on the weekends, always a line outside.

The portions you get at this place are incredible, so bring your appetite! An example: you order a side of bacon, you probably get 8-10 pieces. This place is a shore landmark not to be missed. Keep in mind that it is a small establishment, so there can be a wait, but it's worth it. Also, the seating is not... More

On the morning heading back home from Point Pleasant, we stopped at Mariners Cove for breakfast. I found The tables are small and with 4 of us, the large plates they use, we barley had room on the already cramped tables with what they keep on them already. Due to a very busy place you can bearly hear the waitress... More

I ordered there Home Made Hash Omelette thinking I couldn't go wrong being there signature dish. It was a scramble not an Omelette and was told that is how Omelettes are made. The Hostess Owner was rude and condescending the whole time/ Never go back!

If you are looking for a great place for breakfast or lunch this is the place. Their claim to fame is the couple of hundred omelets on the menu and the size of the portions of food. Just be aware that in the summer you can wait an hour to be seated, is not a big place.

If your looking for a Jersey Shore restaurant to enjoy breakfast and you prefer to stay away from chains, this is the place to go. The beauty of Mariners cove is that very little has changed over the years. When you come here it will look like it did thirty years ago. If you come on a holiday or Sunday... More

This place is outstanding. My wife's and I most favorite dining experience. I've dined at many places throughout my life from East coast, West coast, central America, Western Europe and even Ukraine, and I have never seen such an extensive menu before. It's a novella. Everything I've ever eaten is delicious. Do yourself a favor and get a side of... More

Good food with large portions and a giant breakfast menu. This place is really fun but expect a long wait on summer weekends.

We stopped here for lunch, we both had the grilled chicken fajita wrap, which was on a tomanto tortilla. When brought out it a little surprising that it had broccoli, cauliflower, carrot slices, but was actually very good, it was served with french fries, cole slaw, pickle, and a small cup of chile All for less than $10 apiece. The... More
