“Good Quick Breakfast”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Got up early at the motel next door and hit the Surf Diner for a very good breakfast of pancakes, bacon & eggs. Prepared well and reasonably priced. Friendly staff, good food. What more do you need.

“Pretty Good”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

My wife and I had a late lunch here and we found it to be pretty good. I had the bacon cheeseburger and found it to be very good much like a burger that you would make on your grill at home. My wife had their double club sandwich and this thing was huge. A couple other patrons walked by and told my wife that sandwich was bigger than her. This was our first visit and we will be back to try them again to see if they stay consistent. The price is slightly high but the food was of good quality so I don’t mind it so much. I know that some have complained about the fact you need to pay to park there but the lot is owned by the city so not much they can do about it.

“Kudos”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Why not all THREE! We did and were greatly pleased at the service, generous portions and DELICIOUS food. Hats off to chef and wait staff. Outside dining beside Surfside Pier makes these meals even more memorable.

“Great location on the beach; food is average.”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Went here once for lunch and once for breakfast. Service was very good both times. Food is both good and not so good. Salads are crispy and fresh. Blackened chicken on the salad was tasteless. Breakfast portions were huge. Omelette was very good. Very disappointed that home fries were potato cubes that were deep fried, very greasy and tasteless. The biscuit was a bit of a disappointment also...not really good, but not bad.
The best things are the location right on the beach and very friendly staff.
