We both had the Country Style Breakfast which includes 2 eggs, homefries, choice of meat and either pancakes or French toast. I had blueberry pancakes with mine. They were... More

John and Elaines restaurant in Point Pleasant Boro is absolutely fabulous. All food is cooked to order, homemade, large portions and reasonably priced. The pancakes are melt in your mouth awesome. Tender flavorful with just the right amount of crisp on the outside!! This is a must go to breakfast or lunch when visiting Point Pleasant Beach. Dress is casual....

I liked the breakfast, but I felt the hype was greater than the actual place. The grind the coffee beans fresh, which is a huge plus in my book. They were skimpy on the butter for the pancakes, but they were good anyways.

I have been coming to John and Elaines since I was a kid, and they have always had a delicious and satisfying breakfast. More recently, the service has been touch and go. Sometimes it is friendly and timely, other times I'll wait for something as simple as coffee or water for 10+ minutes when theres only very few other tables... More

Place has been here forever, and looks like it. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is typical, nothing out of the ordinary. Place could use a good cleaning.

It's a typical Jersey diner. There's not many in point pleasant and whenever we visit my husband and I get in a fight but I don't think that's because of the food. Slow service but food is good and coffee is strong.
