Description: 2017 Marks Tom's 23rd year as the proprietor of Uncle Will's. In 1996, Margie came to Beach Haven. She worked as a hostess the summer of 1996 and soon after Tom & she started dating. They married in 1999 and have been working side by side at Uncle Will's ever since. Along with the ever growing and changing Uncle Will's staff/family, they have maintained the original charm of Uncle Will's & have added some updates (including dinner in 2007!) That have helped Uncle Will's to be a mainstay in town & a special place for families to return to each year when they vacation on LBI. When Sandy hit in October, 2012, Uncle Will's was flooded by over four feet of water. It was a sad & devastating event but thanks to months of endless work, Tom rebuilt Uncle Will's with the help of talented friends, Filemon, Willie, and multiple professionals whose skills and labor brought Uncle Will's back to life. We reopened in March, 2013 and are glad to be a part of the community again. The history of Uncle Will's would not be complete without recognizing, with true gratitude & love, our loyal customers. We have been fortunate to have met such wonderful people through the years. Families have grown before our eyes! We've shared in your laughter and joy, your tears and sadness, & we look forward to seeing you every time you enter our door. We cannot thank you enough for your support. And to all of the customers we are meeting for the first time, "Welcome!"

We called for a reservation because it was recommended for us to. Went for breakfast, prices were ok, kind of all over. Large portion for an omelet and came with extras, but prices for the french toast was high for two pieces of bread. Sure was fast though. Ordered and food came within 10 minutes. Be prepared to have cash. Tables were all very close together.

If you are looking for an awesome greasy spoon, Uncle Will's will do you right! My wife and I were staying with friends on LBI for the first time and they took us to Uncle Wills. It was about a 40 minute wait for a table for 8, but well worth it. The food was excellent and the menu options ranged from the healthy to the delish greasy spoon. I had the hash omelet with peppers, onions and salsa and it was exactly what you want when you order such a thing. The rye toast was not insignificant and the homfries were crisp. Prices were very reasonable for LBI (not upstate NY prices, but not NYC either) and the service was great. Other than the wait (a good sign for eateries), spot on.

Any place that deems itself a pancake house should have very good pancakes to say the least. This place has thin, small pancakes about the size of a teacup saucer. Did I say thin, because yes, you will not find thick fluffy pancakes at this disappointing pancake house. Texture was also too spongy so not very cake-like. Save your money & go to Chicken Or The Egg another block away.

The waffles are very good,I got the thin pecan one. Don't let them seat you behind the registrar because the help congregates there and yaks. Distracting.

From my 8 year old: I liked how they have interesting stuff: they bring over a pig to sit with you at your table -- it's really creative. And the food is awesome!
