Beach Diner is a must-go place for breakfast when in the JAX Beach area. Its nice place to visit to kick off a morning with a good breakfast. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict on the Bayou. Go early to avoid waiting in line.

Great standard breakfast and fast service. We had eggs and potatoes and toast - the toast was excellent. We also had pancakes. Highly recommend as a good breakfast spot close to the beach!

The owner's rousing rendition of "New York, New York," set us off on a good note (pun intended). Plus the food was terrific and the staff was friendly and helpful. I don't normally talk about toast but the multigrain toast that came with my eggs was worth mentioning. Good coffee, too!

I love Beach Diner! Everything is delish, the service is great - fast and friendly, and it's in an excellent location. The restrooms could use some attention (there aren't enough of them and they only seat one at a time...

You can't beat their Sunrise Special - nothing too fancy. Just good food at a great price. It was the positive reviews here on Trip Advisor that let us to the Beach Diner, and deservedly so. There are plenty of options is you don't want fried eggs with bacon and hashbrowns.

This is cute little hole in the wall. It's not fancy but it's a super cute beach diner. The food is fantastic. I had the Spanish salad with chicken. The dressing.... yum yum! My friends had The Godfather and it did not disappoint. It's a little greasy but they loved it! Great place for lunch! It's not fancy, very casual.

Our son went to Jacksonville University so we have been coming to "Jville" for years. This restaurant is near Neptune Beach and is great. It's very laid back, food is great and the staff is terrific. Enjoy!
