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.

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.

I am here vacationing in Wildwood NJ. Searched for a breakfast place close to my hotel . I found this restaurant and I couldn't be more pleased . (1) easy walk (was about 5 blocks from my hotel, If you are at the end of the boardwalk toward Wildwood Crest, this is an easy walk) (2) service was outstanding. Servers were professional, and friendly (3) food was excellent ( I had a ham and cheese omelet, another person in my party had chipped beef on toast and the third had their pancakes and (4) the prices are very reasonable I will be going back one more time for breakfast before I leave.

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.

Loved that I could walk from my motel to Surfside West. On an off-season, October, Saturday morning the place was busy with guests and well staffed. They were friendly and attentive and all seemed to care for their customers. My waitress, Kaitlynn, and cook were glad to tweak my omelette order which came out with fresh spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. The food was yummy. Staff seemed to know many of their customers who must have visited before. A very nice, warm place for breakfast for a solo visitor.

This is a nice breakfast spot in the middle of Wildwood. It has a midcentury modern decor that has left many of the 'old' touches in place so it gives you that vibe. The food was standard breakfast fare. We had pancakes and eggs and all were good. The owner takes a lot of pride in the place and stops by your table to ensure that your food is to order and you are enjoying it. Nice place to visit.

The Surfside West diner was just superb. The food was cooked perfectly and was just so good. My husband had the creamed chipped beef which he is very picky about and said it was amazing, and cooked just like he makes it himself. I had the scrambled egg platter and it was also just perfect, not over cooked or burnt, just fabulous home cooking. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who took the time out of his busy schedule to come over and say hi and to check to make sure the meal was good. This is a great restaurant with a super friendly owner who makes sure everything is the best and we can’t wait to visit again.

The creaminess of the yogurt in the granola parfait had me thinking it might be whipped cream—my choice of blueberries, banana, or strawberries ( my choice is always strawberry)— made me think I was having a strawberry shortcake. The special pancakes of the day were cinnamon bun, with frosting drizzled on top. Wish I’d had room to try the special omelette of the day with eggplant, onion, peppers and feta cheese. I’m full just remembering!! One family in a booth behind me (all wearing Surfside t-shirts from previous years) purchased this year’s black ones. You can also purchase zipper bags or canvases painted by the hostess, or jellies made by a waitress. Definitely a family place!!

We love Surf Side West. When in the Wildwoods we always have to get breakfast here at least once. They have great service, good coffee and wonderful food freshly prepared. Restaurant is very clean and owners take great pride in their hospitality and food. The owner often comes out of kitchen to ask how food was and just talk. We had delicious pumpkin pancakes for our breakfast. Highly recommend!

We went for our last breakfast before heading home. Chose Surfside West based on reviews here. Would not return or recommend. Service was slow, though waitress was friendly. Food was disappointing. Menu was heavy on creamed chipped beef, if that's your thing. Belgian waffle and pancakes were ordinary. Eggs and potatoes were small portioned and bland. Had to send bacon back as it was not crispy as asked for. Bathrooms were in a trailer feel area, no paper towels, no place to hang a bag. All in all, not terrible, but there are much better options in the area for a $50 breakfast for 4. Try Marvis!

We were looking for a nice breakfast restaurant and stumbled upon this place. Their menu had all the breakfast staples plus many with an added twist. We had their daily specials: chorizo manchego omelette and blueberry lemon meringue pancakes. The pancakes were so moist, and were the best we have ever had. We have a 9 month old, and the service with her was amazing. Everyone was so kind and friendly. I highly recommend this place since you can’t go wrong with any of their dishes.

Mike and Jeannie are your hosts at this cute as a button retro diner. It feels like a period piece movie set from the 1970’s. Everything is redone as exact replicas of what was there in 1970. I remember this diner as the Crestwood back in the day. The food is throughly modern! Manchego cheese, beer in the pancake batter, horseradish sauce for your potato wedges and sourdough toast. The staff is happy and professional. You will love this place <3

We were in the mood for breakfast out, not cooked at home, and this fit the bill. Strawberry pancakes (my birthday cake is supposed to be strawberry shortcake, but this was perfect!) and strawberry syrup on the side. A short stack (2 cakes) is MORE than enough for me) and my husband loves the thick, crispy scrapple. If you've never had this Philadelphia-area staple, try it here. Cozy family atmosphere, and an amazing mural to relate to your beach visit!

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.
