Food was just ok. View was great. I wouldn't make a special visit but if you are there and you are hungry hit them up. Definitely better food to be had elsewhere.

Everytime we got to Ocean City, we somehow end up here and always say: "Why?" It is a hike to get there, the chairs are cheap plastic chairs which are very uncomfortable, the bathrooms are outside of the restaurant and the food is not worth the trip.

Get the donuts and coffee or hot chocolate for kids. Donuts were outstanding. That's where it went downhill. French toast i could make at home better. My wife's omelette was not very good (ingredients tasted like they came from a can) and the home fries were soggy. Additionally the waitress forgot my order of scrapple. Prices not great considering quality

We stopped here for breakfast and the donuts were to DIE for. We got them fresh off the conveyor and I could have eaten my weight in them. Their other food was so-so but you can tell they spend the time on the donuts. We also rented bikes from them for a trip on the boardwalk. Their rates were incredibly... More

A classic boardwalk beach grill, with a full menu and doughnuts made to order every morning! They also rent bikes and surreys. Summer season only.

I've been eating breakfast there regularly each summer for 30+ years. My family use to sit under, yes under the Boardwalk on beach days. It's home. The food and donuts are delicious. The atmosphere is great. Enjoy.

Oves has a great deal on stuffed lobster with two sides for $28. The service is good and view of the ocean is wonderful.

This restaurant has a fantastic view and it's on the boardwalk. Further down from the chaos so it's incredibly relaxing. The very casual family friendly environment is great for families or big groups. And the menu has something for everyone. We had the steamers which were so delicious. My husband had one of the specials, blackened tuna. And they cooked... More
