If you arrive between 6:00 am and 8:00 am, they offer a reduced price on their breakfast 2 eggs, meat, and toast/muffin. The staff is always welcoming.

Went to Beach Diner 02/25/2019 at 10:00 AM for breakfast. I had read other reviews that touted the “seriously crispy bacon” the good was bland tasting, the bacon floppy, and the coffee was bitter.

We are visiting the area for a week. As we were driving by, the Beach Diner sign “sang” out to us so we stopped. The diner’s interior is beach decor and very clean. The walls are painted white without any smudges. Love it! In talking...More

We shared a shrimp and crab salad with great pleasure. I notice interesting eggs Benedict dishes, as well as, a wide assortment of sandwiches. Since this visit occured in summer, there was no problem with cold wind whipping through entrance door.
