Review of Wally's

Wally's
Ranked #2 of 44 Restaurants in Surf City
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$8 - US$12
Cuisines: American
Description: 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.

What a difference from our previous visits to Wally's. We went to Wally's on October 30th supposedly for dinner, but it didn't work out that way. The hostess at the door told us to sit wherever we wanted because it was not crowded (only 2 other tables filled). We chose a booth and sat waiting patiently for someone to give us menus or even to notice we were there. It never happened! We were totally ignored by the 2 people working the dining room. Why stay open if this is how you treat customers in the off-season. Needless to say, we walked out and went to another restaurant that was much more accommodating. We'll think twice about going back to Wally's!

I often go to Wally's for breakfast. They have a very varied menu that includes many combinations of omelettes including egg whites. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The decor is very cheerful and clean including the bathroom. The one thing I'm not crazy about is the coffee. I am a coffee drinker and the coffee tastes burnt or in the pot too long.

Sign outside said #1 on TripAdvisor
I ordered prime rib and my wife ordered short rib
Both dishes we’ve had many times before
But what we got was a thin minute steak that was 1/3 plus gristle and inedible meat
And sliced steak in a nice sauce
NOT prime rib and short ribs
The mushroom soup was good, but a bit watery

I will not be trying the breakfast or lunch

Wally's chef and server provided a private dinner to celebrate my sister's bachelorette party at my family's beach house in Surf City. Not only was the food and service outstanding and affordable, but we truly had one of the best night's of our lives! I am still dreaming about the crab cakes. Four hours of laughter and outstanding service. Highly reccommend hiring Wally's for your next event!
