Love this place. With the new owners in place this restaurant has improved in many area. The service, addition of wonderful dinner items and the price is not matched by many of the restaurants on The entire island. A wonderful family restaurant with quality and service is it's normal. Clean and inviting!

Friendly, personal service, freshly prepared food, made to,order dishes. Wally's always seems happy to modify items based upon guest's tastes and needs. Very affordable by Long Beach Island standards. One of our most favs on the island for brunch, lunch, even a BYO dinner. ,

My husband and I found ourselves very off season at the Jersey shore for a conference. We came upon Wallys and we're delighted. Had dinner there...fresh food, beautifully prepared and served in a friendly, bright atmosphere. Very reasonably priced, I might add. Went again the next day for lunch...same thing. Happy to review this place most favorably.

We had breakfast yesterday and lunch today at Wally's, a casual, laid-back restaurant right in Surf City. Both times, we were very well taken care of by Jess H., who's a mix of friend, cousin, great neighbor and all-round likeable person. Walking into Wally's is like going to your favorite aunt's kitchen, and the food matches (assuming your aunt is... More

Wonderful New England clam chowder, delicious veggie quesadillas and great service from Annette. Cozy and comfortable atmosphere. It's a great family place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The crumb cake is outstanding!
