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!"

This was my first time visiting Uncle Will's Pancake House and certainly won't be my last visit there! Every year while vacationing on LBI, we like to try somewhere new to eat. I'm not really sure how I never made it her before but glad that I ended up heading here for breakfast this year. We got there early enough (around 7:30) where there wasn't mobs of people waiting outside to get in and be seated. When we walked in, we were greeted and seated promptly. We ordered drinks which were brought out to us quickly. After placing our order for food, we were surprised by how quickly we got it. (It wasn't slammed in there, but it definitely was busy). The food was delicious! The portions were also quite large. Everything was prepared as ordered and we had no complaints or issues with the food. Our waitress was great as well. She checked on us a couple of times without hovering or being annoying. When we were ready for our bill she presented it to us quickly. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very welcoming and friendly. I wouldn't suggest coming here though if you are looking for a quiet breakfast because this place definitely gets busy and there are a lot of families with kids.

Overall, excellent service and food at affordable prices!

Liked the fact that if you get there between 7:00 and 8:00 am, you can enjoy the 222 breakfast....2 pancakes, 2 eggs any style, and 2 sausages or bacon for $2.22. It definitely was worth it and very good. The orange juice tastes freshly squeezed. The restaurant was packed and we were served almost immediately!!

Thank you for accomodating my party of 35 last night. We were seated at our reservation time by a very friendly staff. The food was great and the service was perfect. Your staff was very attentive to every detail and handled the kids table with the paitence of a saint. Excellent all around, we felt at home.

We have been going to Uncle Will's for more years than I care to count! And it has always been one of our favorite breakfast spots on Long Beach Island. The service is fantastic, waiters and management. A pig may even join you for what will no doubt will be a delicious breakfast! And we love everyone there especially because they help us carry on a very special tradition in our family. So when you go to Uncle Wills, tell Max and Margi that the fried chicken family sent you - and please order bacon!!
