We had breakfast and lunch here. Good food with good service. Cheapish rates. It was nice to sit out overlooking the harbour

Food was very good, service was prompt and efficient, parking was in a lot. The one drawback: cash only.

Really enjoyed having breakfast here before catching the ferry to NYC. The service was quick, the coffee was good, and we all enjoyed our food. The coffee is fairly cheap!

Came down here to catch the sunrise over the marina. Stopped here for the first time afterwards for breakfast. Full breakfast menu at reasonable prices. Fast friendly service. There is an outdoor seating area overlooking the marina. I was the only one sitting outside and the waitress checked on me several times. Good sized portion for the price. I have... More

On the Jersey Shore, waterfront dining establishments always charge extortion-like prices. Sissy's is a nice change of pace. This is essentially a diner with a fantastic view and environment, and you won't break the bank when eating here. Service is always friendly, and drinks are served in huge mason jar glasses. While I've never had a breakfast item I actually... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday around noon. The restaurant was about half full with seating inside & out. We decided to sit outside to dine; the views from the outside deck are amazing. We ended up ordering a turkey club, which came with coleslaw, French Fries & a pickle. The French fries were very greasy. My wife... More

This is a very standard older coffee shop style restaurant. Clean and very pleasant staff. Great coffee. We sat outside facing the marina which was very picturesque. Breakfast was very good with the standard eggs / omelets / pancakes fare offered. It is obviously a favorite of the locals.

Before fishing for fluke on the Atlantic Star, Capt. Tom Buban recommended a Sausage and egg sandwich at Sissy's. Best egg sandwich I've ever had. Service was fast and pleasant and price was right.

Went there for breakfast and sat outside on the patio, With a view of the marina, what could be bad? Had pancakes, which were fine and my companion had an omelet. The food is good, the service is good. It's the view that can't be beat. Good luck finding a parking space though. There's a dozen parking spaces in the... More
