Found this place by accident, but what a find. The food was fantastic, the service was amazing, and the atmosphere was really pleasant! We’re leaving town tomorrow but will be going again before we leave! It’s a new staple any time we visit Wildwood!

I actually found this restaurant through the reviews on here and saw how highly rated it was, so I had to find out for myself. The reviews were right, this place had the best breakfast in the Wildwoods, the staff was fantastic and sitting outside...added that right touch to the experience. I am definitely adding this place to my list of mandatory places to eat whenever I visit the area. Next time I hope to try their dinner as well.More

Great breakfast at Surf Side West. Ricotta and lemon pancakes were done perfectly. Sausage sliders are a must and the omelettes are super fluffy. They definitely have some unique options outside of the standard breakfast provisions. Don’t forget a side of the house-made tomatillo sauce!

Surfside has been our go-to spot for years, a bell bed vacation tradition. Yesterday was our first trip in since COVID hit. We were early enough to be the only family sitting outside and we're fortunate to have our usual server, Robin, whom we adore!...My husband had his favorite, the macadamia nut french toast, and our daughter and I shared some eggs and hash browns with toast. Everything was as fresh and delicious as it always is.More

My husband & I stopped here for breakfast on our weekend get away & it did not disappoint! It was so good that we came back the next morning! We loved that they had outdoor seating and a staff that was as good as the...food. Everything we had was delicious but our favorite was the potato cakes! If you are looking for a great family owned establishment to get an amazing breakfast and be able to sit outside & smell the ocean air then this place is for you!More

Went for breakfast and I got the hangover classic. It consist of hone fries, cheese, cream chipped beef with an egg on top. The portion was just perfect not excessive and it filled you up. My wife got a Belgian waffle, it was very good.

The best breakfast experience me and my girlfriend have ever had and we have a tradition of going to different diners in NYC for breakfast on the weekend. Due to Covid we ordered To Go but the Cajun Omelet and Green Eggs and Ham were...amazing. We called ahead and the food was ready when we got there and the staff was very kind and we had a really great chat with the owner John. The iced coffee was also really great. This was the perfect way to end our weekend in Wildwood and we look forward to coming back and recommending it to our family who vacation in Wildwood Crest.More

Not sure what the health departments view is. We have had some well behaved dogs outside. Mike.
