“Hearty breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Somewhat unique restaurant with catchy name. Fits well with the retro theme of the Wildwood Crest motels. Food was good, not excellent but good. Portions were almost too large for some of us who try not to eat too much. It was easy gaining a table since I assume it was so early in season (Memorial Day weekend). If back in Wildwood area would likely return for some other breakfast menu selection.

“Large portions of below par food, great environment and nice staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Oversized portions of food are never high quality. Cream based mixes in many items and it is a corn starchy tasteless blob. Gravies not authentic either

They abuse the word HOMEADE

I love the decor.

French fries excellent! Tuna tasteless

“Always a breakfast stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I have been coming to the Pink Cadillac for years. Before then, I believe it was called Big Ernie's. Big Ernie's was excellent and was always a breakfast stop and now the Pink Cadillac has taken over seamlessly. Their omlettes are huge and satisfying as are their homefries. They also make fantastic unsweetened iced tea....trust me, some places really make awful tea but this place always tastes fresh brewed. The food is ALWAYS fresh when I eat here, so I don't understand why someone has complained about that. The staff is always super friendly and speak fine english...someone else on here complained that their server didn't speak english too well. Many shore towns hire Europeans to work over the summer, so of course everyone won't speak perfectly clear english...get over it! I have been coming to Wildwood for years and love the different nationalities they have working there. It makes for great conversations with your server to learn about where they are from and what they are studying (many are college students in Europe). I will continue to visit the Pink Cadillac every June when I visit Wildwood! Keep up the good work, guys!

“Decent, but there are a lot of area places to choose from”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

My Greek omelet was good, but there are many places that can make an omelet that compares favorably. Portion size was out of control. If the needlessly large portions were scaled back, I'm sure the prices could be scaled back as well. Would not be my first choice for breakfast in Wildwood. The retro decor was an attempt at atmosphere but needs to be worked on to make it a selling point.
