Best breakfast ever. A gem in Surf City. Every morsel Gone! We were at a charity function hosted at Wally's. Great dinner choices, prime rib, scallops, chicken francaise... I would have been happy with Anything on the menu.

Great food at a fair price. Friendly staff. Comfy atmosphere. Great Early Bird Special... with fabulous dessert options: key lime pie, lemon bar, or grilled crumb cake! BYOB. A must go-to on LBI. Where locals frequent all year ‘round. And free doggy treats outside!

Great deals on Early Bird Specials. My daughter had the prime rib and I had the chicken parm. The mushroom rice soup was delicious too.

Sorry for the delay - our early bird specials are from 4-5:30. You have your choice of 8 different entrees. It also comes with soup or salad, a beverage and your choice of dessert. The price is 15.95. Thanks for asking. -Mike

Wally's is BYOB, but the NJ law does not allow them to advertise this at all. Also, only beer and wine is BYOB, nothing distilled. More than you'd want to know about the subject if you Google "NJ BYOB law."

Wally's is a charming breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant in Surf City on beautiful LBI, New Jersey. All your favorites, from eggs cooked to perfection and our Eggs Benedicts, to the sweeter side with Pancakes, French Toast and Waffles. Enjoy them as classics, or indulge in one of our sweet twists such as Cinnamon Roll or Reeses Pancakes or fresh fruit topped Waffles and French Toast with our house made sweet cream. Start lunch with our house made soups, but leave room for your main dish whether you order from the lighter side with a salad or wrap, or you opt for one of Wally's signature dishes, the Mac 'N Cheese bowl served with chicken breast, bacon, mushrooms topped with truffle oil for the final touch. If meat is not your thing, try our Veggie versions. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine and join us for dinner for a variety of delicious appetizers, dinner options and desserts.
