Open April to October, it features pancakes leavened by beer from local breweries, eggs the way you want them, crispy scrapple, and the Hangover! Also--green eggs and ham! Try... More

A true diner experience! Extensive menu with some creative surprises. Cute, retro atmosphere with some original features. Service was no frills but definitely conscientious and wonderfully attentive, with the hostess having menus ready for us before we even crossed the threshold and the cook/manager coming over twice to check on us. We recommend the potato cake with horseradish sauce (so... More

Surfside West is hands down the best diner in Wildwood. I'm not saying the other diners are bad, and they may be a little more visually interesting -- but the quality of ingredients and the attention to detail and service at Surfside has all the others beat!

The food was great, the atmosphere was good and the restaurant was clean. The waitress were very nice and sociable. We had our Grandkids with us and they were very helpful with the high chairs, extra napkins and hand wipes. The owner/cook even came out to talk to us. It was an enjoyable experience.
