“Nice breakfast place”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I ate for the first time this past weekend. Have eaten at other breakfast places in Ocean City, but I liked this the best so far. It's your quintessential restaurant at the shore. Open air, small, and pretty tightly packed but very good food. We rode bikes on the boardwalk and then parked our bikes here for breakfast. I had the pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwich on a Kaiser roll. It's a jersey thing. It came with home fried potatoes. Both the sandwich and the potatoes were great and reasonably priced for the shore($5.99).The service was very efficient. I definitely will be eating here again.

“Yum!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Great breakfast at a reasonable price...be prepared to wait in the early morning hours, or come by after 10 am for more room. Only downside is street/metered parking.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Known for it's Baked NJ Tomato soup shouldn't keep the Varsity Inn from bragging about their fantastic clam chowder. The soup was fantastic, in fact it was better than any I've had anywhere including New England. The restaurant was busy, as it should be, considering friendly staff, prompt service and terrific food.
It didn't dawn on me until after I'd left that this was the old College Restaurant which I visited with my parents more than 50 years ago. Sometimes consistently good is what makes a business truly successful.
