We're locals to North Wildwood and we've been coming to the Star Diner since we moved here 10 years ago. It's a great place to bring groups because of the wide variety of dishes - something to please everyone. Large portions. Good service.

Mornings at the Shore are better when you swing into the Star Diner, sit at the counter, get some good coffee and a hearty breakfast. French Toast, Biscuits and Gravy, Denver omelette - all good. The folks there are nice, and they take care of you quickly.

Every time we are in the area we stop here before going home. It was a Wed. morning, so there were no crowds. Large menu. Meal was breakfast food. Service was good. They gave us refills on drinks. Pleasant experience.

I have given this Diner a good review in the pass, but this time I'm going to have to say I was disappointed. They must have gone under new management or something. They used to have great prices for great food, but when we went all of a sudden the prices where jacked up through the roof. So we decided... More

5 of us stopped for a late breakfast, good size portions and a large menu selection. Large dining area, service has always been good when we've stopped in. Definitely recommend if your staying in North Wildwood.

Very nice restaurant. Pleasant Servers, large portions. I got an appetizer sampler and that was plenty for dinner, even took enough home for lunch the next day. Everyone enjoyed their food.

This place draws a large crowd and if you have several or more in your group this is a great place to spend time together. The staff has always been friendly and the food hits the spot. Being situated on New Jersey Avenue in North Wildwood allows the Star to have their prices a bit higher than other places like... More

We go to this Diner every year at least once on our vacation. It's a Greek Diner in the New Jersey tradition. The menu is so varied that you can get just about anything your heart (or tastebuds) desire. The food is good and there is plenty of it. Decent prices and great value. Be aware that this is a...

The family and I have been here a few times before; notably 2 years ago on a previous review that was disappointing. This time around; the taste of improvement; the chicken pot pie (wife) ordered was hot and had ‘real’ chicken (ha; no joke, some diners near us use ‘fake’ cubed chicken) this place used pulled chicken breast in it...

Another great meal. Excellent service. Got there at 8:30AM Saturday. Perfect timing. Immediately seated. Noticed as we were eating that a line started to form. As we left, there were at least 20 people waiting. HINT: try to get there before 9AM Saturdays during prime summer weekends.

Thank Ann S
