I grabbed a Mahi-Mahi sandwich to go for lunch and it was very good. The mango salsa was fantastic. It was a bit slow getting the sandwich, but worth the wait. Very nice that they offer fresh fruit instead of fries, too. Will go back next year.

I ordered a fish taco and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The atmosphere is family/friendly and the wait more indicative of demand vs. size of the place rather than inefficient management.

This is our favorite breakfast place! We even drive down during the off season sometimes. The staff is always friendly, attentive, and fast. The prices can't be beat compared to other restaurants on the area. The food is always prepared perfectly to order. Delicious!

Awesome food and service! The staff makes everyone feel special and it definitely doesn't feel like a chain. Definitely visit here on your stay in OCNJ!

My family and I looked forward to having breakfast in OC Surf Café after reading the reviews in Trip Advisor, and the place did not disappoint. Upon entrance, we were immediately greeted and seated. Fresh brewed coffee was offered and served immediately. The restaurant menu offers a wide range of breakfast items. The portion sizes are sufficient to satisfy any... More

We came her to find something to eat other than the boardwalk and we were impressed and can't wait to go back! Finally a nice, inexpensive, great quality restaurant in OC NJ! They have a large breakfast menu and a nice lunch menu, but you can still get breakfast at lunch which we did!

Diner Style breakfast. Large breakfast plates prepared to order. Place is small, so a long wait time outside is expected. Surf theme inside decor. A must visit at least once during a vacation.

I had breakfast here last Friday with my father, who is a particular person when it comes to the first meal of the day. The restaurant was well decorated with a beachy atmosphere. The menu was diverse with both typical and creative options for breakfast. The fruit was fresh and the coffee was flavorful. I found the service to be... More
