My siblings, I, and our spouses had breakfast here our last day together for our annual gathering. There were 10 of us. They were expecting us, as we were looking for a place near where we were staying that would be open on a Monday....We had our area in the back, where we sat in two large booths, with the sibling in a wheelchair able to have her chair at the end of one of the tables. // The food was great (omelets, basic eggs and fixings, pancakes, etc. It came out of the kitchen fast. The two young adults who waited on us were great. The gal offered to take a group picture for us so we all could be in the one we needed from our days together -- one with all of us wearing our masks The two were very attentive. // We would go back, if any of us return to OCNJ, as we all were from out of town.More

This place is an absolute gem for a great breakfast and coffee. We did not have a lunch here but heard people say lunch was also excellent. Very convenient, we stayed at the Forum Motel and it is literally across the street. Very close to...the boardwalk as well. Friendly service, Great food- can’t ask For much more.More

Whether it's takeout or eat in nobody in OC makes a dish like the OC Surf. We just had another delicious lunch. This place never disappoints. Put this on your list when you vacation in OC.

Fantastic breakfast! I ordered an avocado toast, but I wanted some extras added. My order was detailed (I asked for the eggs to be separated), and some extras to be added, and they did it perfectly. I was beyond satisfied, and my girlfriend loved her...surprise treat. They also prepared this to go, and the packaging was excellent for travel. Well done!More

Let me just start off by saying this: 3 summer's in a row and now looking forward to our 4th. Wouldn't think to go anywhere else to start our day and have our morning breakfast. And I really do mean that my 11 year old...daughter an I never eat breakfast anywhere else. And for the time that were vacationing have never missed our mornings their,with our good friend Mike and his lovely wife. It is so much for you to at least try something on their menu, the fish tacos are out of this world. You're the best as always. Glenn Shaffer family.More

Started coming to OC Surf Cafe, when Libby and her husband first opened. Our kids were only 8 or 9 at the time. Now they are in their late 20's and early 30's, and when ever they visit the east coast this is one of...the places they have to visit. Thanks for keeping a great tradition alive.More

Once a year we come to Ocean City and the OC Surf Cafe is z must. They set the standard in service and quality. Good chance there will be as wait on busy days. My western omelet was super. Four thumbs up.
