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!

Beach diner is my favorite breakfast place in Jacksonville. Whenever I visit my buddy we always go here... everyday. The facility is clean, staff is awesome and the meals are amazing. I haven't had a bad dish yet. Do yourself a favor and eat here

Ate here with my two daughters. Menu is extremely varied with something for everyone including they serve breakfast all day. Got Atlantic Salmon and two vegetables (they have about 15-20 to choose from). Wait staff very friendly and helpful lots of locals eat here. Nice casual atmosphere. The owner of the restaurant came by and said we didn't look like... More

It seemed to be a crowded local spot. Our sever was great. She was honest about menu items, I was looking for Florida Style grapefruit juice, she shared that it was more like Ocean Spray blend. We had a great breakfast and she was willing to substitute for toast since I was gluten free.

We both got the Ultimate breakfast which has some of everything in a good ole fashioned breakfast. Bacon, sausage, grits, home fries, eggs, and pancakes. Everything was cooked perfectly. You know you won't eat it all but order it anyway! Food and service was great.

Had breakfast here on a weekday morning. It appears to be a local hangout with good food and friendly service. I had the shrimp & crab omelet in honor of being near the sea, wife had eggs benedict. All was excellent. Very attentive waitress kept filling our coffee cups.

I've eaten here several times when visiting Jacksonville. The food is always tasteful, well-prepared and served as quickly as possible, considering it is often crowded. Highly recommend.

Stopped here for breakfast. Indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor let's you watch the cars go up and down but with nice weather would rather sit outside. Everything was cooked like requested. Only negative, why can't anyone butter the dam toast. We take the brush and dot the middle of the bread and call it buttered. I call it lazy. Owner... More
