My family and I stopped in while weathering out the hurricane!! Great fries, great service and good drinks! The menu is very reasonably priced!

This was formerly owned by a family that had great service and very tasty quick grill meals - perfect for the beach families. Well the new owner replaced the old cook and wow was the food tasteless. Our Saturday breakfast was likely the worst in a long time. The service was bad since the dining room had only three tables... More

Go for breakfast as you enjoy the food and the service!!! Read some of the reviews as there were differing reviews so I was unsure, but decided that my husband and I should meet our friends who were visiting from New England anyways. I hoped that we all liked it. Well we did!!! We all enjoyed our breakfasts very much!!!... More

Typical diner menu, but the food is anything but typical. Sausage was the best I've ever had in a diner, obviously good quality. Home fries are home made, eggs were cooked perfectly. Pancakes were light, fluffy and delicious. One in our party really enjoyed their signature creamed chipped beef over home fries. The service was great and friendly and they... More

We always stop here at least 2x when visiting OC. This year was such a bummer. The serving size has shrunk and the food was less than average. The chipped beef was watery and did not even come close to being enough to even go over the toast. It was not tasty. On a better note, the coconut pancakes were... More

Great food, but took for ever to get it brought out to us. Very friendly server, but could use additional help. They have free parking in the back for guests; however, finding a spot in their small lot is a long shot. All-in-all, we will return, but will plan on setting aside more time and paying for parking. Also, the... More

It took us at least an hour to get our breakfast. While we were there many tables simply got up and left from waiting so long. Service was the worst. No one cared at all. Once we were served we never saw a server again. We had to go inside and get our check and pay. We are super laid... More

We have been going to Goolee's for a number of years for breakfast after early morning bike rides on the Boardwalk. In the past, we had great food, great service, and looked forward to our annual visit. This morning's breakfast lacked nearly every good thing we have come to know, and we will not be going back. In the past,... More

I saw on Facebook that this place had been bought out and they were transitioning to a new owner who is going to change what the menu/business is so that may have something to do with this review. There was one waitress at 9am. She was running around trying to keep up but couldn't. I saw many orders messed up,... More

Friendly staff - always rounding on tables to refresh drinks/coffee. Very welcoming. This is a low-key, laid back breakfast spot with a huge menu and cool specials. My husband was impressed with the hot coffee and large breakfast portions. We left full and happy. We would come back to Goolee's for sure. We always love a good mom/pop place to... More
