Totally worth the wait. Party of 9, adults and kids. Everyone found something they really liked. Egg omelets seemed larger than 3 eggs. Very good breakfast.

Worst place and a rip off! Very out dated restaurant afraid of the future. Pancakes tastes cheap and horrible. Do your self a favor and stay away from this place.

Everything is very good here. Home fries extra good if you order them well done. Gets crowded, come early.

Great food and service. Put it in the top 3 for breakfast on LBI. Pancakes are light and very tasty. Omelette are equally as great ... fluffy not greasy. Portions are fair for pricing. Should rethink the $2.00 service charge if share. Not appropriate and sends poor signal to customers. Would also be nice not to be cash only. Look... More

We found this restaurant to be Ok. Not great but not bad. Just Ok. Normal breakfast food. They did have a big breakfast special which is actually served on a turkey platter. They open at 8:00am so if you are an early riser you should find another place.

This is my fifth year going to Jayson's. I have always been greeted and served as soon as I walked in. When there has been a wait, the hostess estimated my wait time accurately. The decor is clean and inviting and has recently been redone, keep a fresh look. Menu is simple breakfast with options for everyone to find something.... More

When i walked in, the atmosphere was like your typical breakfast place. I was greeted with a big smile from one of the waitresses and felt right at home. Not only was the service fantastic but the food as well! The pancakes are to die for. Will definitely return soon.

Breakfast is our favorite meal of the day and Jayson's is our favorite breakfast spot on LBI. Comfortable family atmosphere, super staff and servers, and great food. Also, very clean with a cute, beach house vibe. It's a tough choice with all the pancake and waffle options, but they're all delicious so you can't go wrong. Banana and chocolate chip... More

Was I at the same place as most other reviewers, or are pancakes the only thing that they do well? The restaurant I was in was deserted-more staff than customers, not a good sign when we passed numerous places with lines out the door. We were greeted and seated quickly-the service is the only thing that prevented me from rating... More
