“Go with the Pancakes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

I have been staying in WW pretty much every summer since birth, and Samuel's is a breakfast 'must' every time down there. The pancakes are AWESOME. They are lighter and airier (is that even a word?) rather than heavy and thick, which is perfect for me. There are tons of choices for toppings or things baked in, and they're all great. However, I probably wouldn't go here if I just wanted eggs. Their eggs are always a little "off" for me, and the omelets are better at some other breakfast places. But there are many other choices that are great, such as giant fruit plates, oatmeal, a huge parfait that looks like an ice cream sundae, and other breakfast staples. But to go here and not at least get a small order of pancakes is crazy, because they really are the best in Wildwood!

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

There's a great selection of pancakes, the best one is the carrot cake pancakes, do not hesitate to order that! The waitress was really nice, the place was almost full but we did not have to wait, and the price was nice. We were all full after that.

“The place to go for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We always go to Samuels for breakfast when we're in Wildwood. The food is always good. I was disappointed, though, with the coffee they served this year, definitely not up to par.

“Nice quick breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

The portions are large as you would expect at a pancake house. The pictures are accurate. The bacon was crisp and the pancakes were delicious. The service was very fast and accurate. Great traits at a beach restaurant!
