We have been going there for the last 11 years. They offer great breakfast and lunch. The staff is welcomimg and the food is comfort food. During the season expect a wait but it will be worth the wait

This restaurant seems to be quite popular with local residents. Our exerience? The service was good and the wait staff was friendly. However the food quality was just ok for the price. Atmosphere: narrow aisles, no place (indoors) to wait for a table. It is small and felt crowded.

No matter if I come for breakfast with my husband, or dinner with my friends, I am pleased with the home cooking meals that they serve. Service is good, although there are sometimes short lines waiting to get in occasionally. The ambiance is homey and several of the customers are regulars. Enjoy the meals that mom usw to make when...

We love this place for breakfast. The usual fare & yummy scrapple. It can get crowded on the weekends, but worth a little wait.

Some in the family did not care for the food. I like the food and the place as well as service. Reasonably priced considering the area. Closed Sundays.

Breakfast was average as was the service. Very small inside and not very clean. Try the Bethany Diner instead.

As vacationers, we always noticed the crowd waiting to get into Ocean View Family Restaurant. Now as area residents, we know why! Don't let the line stop you from enjoying a wonderful breakfast with the locals. Sign your name on the wait list and you'll be seated very quickly. My husband loves the frequent Eggs Benedict special, but I only... More

Looks a bit dumpy from the outside but great food and warm service & atmosphere more than makes up for it! Delicious...something for everyone unless you like fancy schmanzy.... Highly recommend - very popular with locals - may have to wait a bit but with it.

Thank DebKep
