“Rainy day Breakfast”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Came here on our bikes for breakfast since it was not a beach morning.
We had pancakes that were lukewarm and chewy. We sent them back and got fresh ones that were better. It was good but I can't believe we spent almost 30 dollars on breakfast for just the two of us. Very pricey for average food.
Service was great though and the waitress was pleasant. They have the pancake market cornered here, so just be ready to spend a lot for not a lot.

“Overpriced Ok Food”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

There were 7 of us and the bill was more than $100. Crazy - we ordered pancakes and bacon and coffee. Ok - one of us had scrapple. The kids were happy with their choc chip pancakes but I found mine dry and tasteless. But there are not many choices in Avalon for breakfast so if you want to all go out you might end up here. Be ready to wait, and cash only. Also have your coffee at home - here it costs over $2 and is not great! Also don't expect a latte.

Someone at Trip Advisor - please correct the name of the restaurant - it is Uncle Bill's - not Uncle Bulls!

“They need to improve”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

At times, there's a long wait for breakfast. In this case, it's not worth it. The food was average and a little pricey for breakfast. I've never been to a breakfast place where home fries were "an extra" when ordering eggs or other specials. The place was clean and the service very quick. Having said that, there are better places in town. Enjoy the town of Avalon!

“Used to be a tradition”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Have been coming every year for the past 20. Prices are way up and quality is way down. Expect to pay $10 per head for mediocre food and servings. Not a tradition any more.

“VERY AVERAGE”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Always wanted to try breakfast here. It was crowded & had trouble getting a parking spot. Didn't have a long wait. The server was friendly and attentive. The menu seemed a little pricey...but it is a shore town. The food came & it was "OK"...Don't think it was worth waiting for again.
