“Pretty good food right on Lincoln Rd.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stopped here while we were looking for a place to eat on Lincoln Road. We mainly chose this restaurant for the location and that is was priced a bit better than other restaurants on Lincoln Road. The food was pretty good. I had a pasta dish with a cream sauce, which was really rich, but good. Overall the food was pretty good, and if in the area I would try again.

“SEXIEST BARTENDER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I visited Miami Beach and stopped for a drink at the Van Dyke after a furious shopping session on Lincoln Road. After my first Bloody Mary I felt hypnotized by the handsome Colombian bartender and ended up staying the whole afternoon. The food was very good and the background jazz was just great. The service of my Romeo was superb and I felt that I was in a movie with Antonio Banderas......... I highly recommend this cafe, next time i will visit at night to listen to some live jazz!

“Fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

My wife and I travel to MB two or three times a year.... The Van Dyke is a MUST!

Food is great, service and prices are right
But,most significantly, manager is a real professional! Known him for years, yet don't know his name , ( from Philly and drives a Harley ) He is so thoughtful , shakes your hand and makes certain that you have what you ordered promptly ....can't say enough about him.... Business needs people like him..,,

“Great Food and People Watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Loved this restaurant. It seemed like it was german themed with the decor and the staff uniforms. Situated in a great location in the middle of Lincoln Rd., this restaurant is great for people watching and enjoying the morning, afternoon or evening. I ordered the Omelet and the servings were gigantic!

Staff was very attentive and I would definitely come back here again during my next visit!

“Funplace to sit outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Situated on Lincoln Rd. in the heart of Miami Beach. Nice place to sit outside if not too hot. Service was marginal but the waitress was friendly but the restaurant was pretty busy. Food was decent though not exceptional. We selected the spot primarilarily for its location.
