“Very nice looking - lots of atmosphere”
Reviewed October 10, 2009

The food at the Doo Wop Diner is average diner food - nothing special. The main reasons to eat here are:
1) Looks like a 50s diner - all black and white tile, jukebox, etc.
2) You can sit down in a booth in A/C - nice in summer time
3) Food prep a little better than other boardwalk dives
4) Watching the boardwalk crowds walk by

That being said, the kids loved eating here and it was near a great discount bookstore. I would recommend going for these reasons and will go again myself.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed September 11, 2009

Decor of this restaurant was nice. Service was pretty good, no major problems. Asked for strawberry sundae and she brought chocolate and said we ordered chocolate. Other than that OK. There was a lady constantly cleaning the floor, no paper towels in bathroom.
Food was good. Burgers good, very good chicken wrap. $75 for lunch for 3 adults and 3 kids. Had coupon for free sundaes for the adults and the kids got one sundae to share. Not sure if we would go back but a decent place anyway.

“What a delightful spot and great food!”
Reviewed September 9, 2009

Perfect atmosphere. Awesome filling food. Great prices. All the things needed for a great meal on Wildwood's boardwalk. After you've had your fill of a giant burger or hot dog, don't stop there. Look over their extensive ice cream menu and have a fantastic dessert to finish off your meal. The only thing I'd change about this location is to clean up the bathrooms a little more often and tell your wait staff to smile. They werent ignorant or mean or inattentive, they just seemed bored out not wanting to be there. Otherwise, if you have a family or even just the 2 of you, this is the perfect spot for a quick filling lunch and/or dinner!!!

“Ehhh....it's alright but nothing to get excited over.”
Reviewed September 9, 2009

In my opinion, other than the decor, it's nothing to special. The food is alright but if you go in either May or September you risk them not having a lot of supplies because they're only open mainly in season. I know it's down te shore but their prices are still a little high fir what they serve (salads, burgers, fries, etc). Plus, the last few times I ate here it took forever to not only get our food but also the check. Then we had to wait a while just for someone to come up so we could pay. The good thing about it is that is's in the middle of the boardwalk.
