This is a very small diner. There is always a waiting line. They have booths, and stools at the counter. I love to sit at the counter and watch this guy fill so many orders at one time on a large grill, and get every order right. Eggs, sunny side up, or over easy. Always done correctly. My son had...

This is a small, oceanfront diner - and I mean small. But wonderful service, a line out the door, and great food. If I understand correctly the entire hotel is being razed in late 2016/early 2017 to make way for a brand new hotel - so get to it as soon as you can. To the locals, it is an... More

It's tough to stay cute for 47 years, but I guess we did it. Thanks for the compliment and, if everything goes as planned, we'll be back bigger and better. More

This little gem is located right on the Belvedere Hotel oceanfront property....so if you are staying there just hop off elevator and you are there! 50s diner retro serves breakfast and lunch. If you are staying at the hotel, you can get room service. Get there early as usually a line, but it moves fast. If no line, you can... More

The food is just ok and not cheap. This place can serve about 25 people at max and usually has lines outside the door. If you want a good breakfast try the Pocahontas Pancake House, the food is much better and has fast service.

Don't forget the ocean view. It's much better than looking at a parking lot. Thanks for giving us a try. More

They leveled the restaurant and rebuilt it, ITS EXACTLY THE SAME! It's no bigger. There is always crowded, there is always a wait. What was the point of rebuilding it if is exactly the same size??? The food is good, a bit over priced, but overall a decent place to eat.

This place was really cute inside. I felt like I was transported back in time to a 1950s diner. There are windows all around so you can see the ocean and boardwalk while you eat. Bruce Springsteen was playing on the radio when we walked in...you can't go wrong with that. My food (2 fried eggs, hash browns, toast and... More

Tiny restaurant on the property of the Belvedere Motel on the northern end of the beach. VERY friendly staff, food as expected for a diner. (average). This place fills up quickly as it doesn't seat many. Prices are reasonable. I'd stop in again.

Had breakfast here this morning. Very friendly staff, and good, basic breakfast food served up fast. I had the best seat in the house--at the counter and by the door, so I could watch folks come in and see my food being made.

It was the only restaurant open at 7 AM on Saturday morning, which was the only positive thing about it. We wanted to try something local for breakfast. The food selection was very small, and the restaurant is badly in need of refurbishing.

We can't expect to please everyone, but we do appreciate that you gave us a try. For those who do appreciate what we have to offer, here are the facts. Although this is our 47th season at The Belvedere, everything was refurbished three years ago with new booths, counter stools, carpeting, paint, refrigeration, and a new POS system. The food...

The size of this establishment should not fool you. From outside the place looks bigger tan what it really is. I believe it serves mostly breakfast, but we went there for lunch..The hamburgers were to die for. It is small but nice..do you remember the TV show ALICE?. Even smaller than that
