We ate dinner here after breaking a ring finger. Great deli sandwiches. Delicious corned beef and roast beef. Comes with a pickle selection and other New York deli type foods.

Wolfies is a New York style deli that has everything you'd expect and more. By far the best corned beef sandwich anywhere. Potato latkes, homemade soups and more. Great place when you miss New York or just want a fresh sandwich.

This is your old-fashioned, traditional American breakfast. Generous helpings of eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles. All made the way we all like it, homemade style. Mouth-watering cold cut sandwiches, made fresh in front of you. Great food, great coffee, what more could I say. Try it, you'll like it.

We went to Wolfies today for the first time on St. Patty's day and had a fantastic experience. The service was excellent (Lisa) and they were packed. We got seated right away and our food came out very fast. The cornbeef and cabbage platter was excellent and very tasty and the portion was great. The place is very clean...we will... More

I've been eating at Wolfies since the mid seventies when they first opened in Toms River,when the mother Mrs. Wolf was still alive. I walked into her deli and asked for a brisket on rye sandwich with horseradish.. She asked me if I was from New York, because no one in our town had yet to order that combination. I... More

My wife and I stopped by for Lunch after a brief shopping trip. We intended to have sandwiches but were lured away by their special's menu. I ordered the Crab Cake dinner which included soup, salad and desert. While not "home made" the crab cakes were quite good. The Potato Pancake was crispy on the outside and hot and tasty... More

The corned beef and pastrami (along with the potato pancakes) are excellent. Also the beef brisket. Don't stray too far from these items though. The rest of the menu is so so. The place is old and could use a "refresh" so if you're finicky -- consider that. (Or maybe just order it to go - it's worth it!)

There are not a lot of places in Ocean County where you can get New York style pastrami and corn beef but if you eat at Wolfies you won't care. The pastrami and corn beef is as close as you get to nirvana. They have recently even added turkey pastrami which has a similar profile to the beef version. Other... More

Competes with local diners and some days it equals them. Other days food is not the best, Menus are sticky and coffee needs improvement.

When you were craving New York style corn beef to go here and only hear it it's absolutely the best sandwich you can get.this is a good sit down and eat deli style diner/restaurant. The inside has the appearance of an old little restaurant down a side street even though it's on the major Road 37
