Great breakfast & friendly attentive service in active downtown area. Western omelet and Huervos Rancheros were pleasing to the eye and just as tasty. Thanks!

Love joining my family at the Paramount Diner in Manasquan whenever I am visiting the east coast. Perfect spot for coffee & breakfast with the whole family. Servers are always friendly and great with the young kids. Definitely a great local spot!

Went here for breakfast, 9/28/15 (lunch in August 2015, and once back in the 1990's...), and was totally appeased. It's not a very big diner, but for the amount of people allowed in at one time, you do not feel clustered. However, the bathrooms are a little bit tight to get to. I do feel there is a timeless, cozy... More

Really enjoyed our breakfast! Our waitress was friendly and helpful, as was the entire staff. I love the idea that you can order just one blueberry pancake along with one slice of pecan walnut French toast, so you don't have to choose. Highly recommend giving it a try!

We stopped in for lunch today and I was pleasantly surprised. The menu was affordable and varied. My sister and I each had a wrap. Mine was the spinach wrap with chicken, craisins and a few other delicious items. The waitresses were friendly and efficient.

Loved the breakfast! Wait staff very professional and welcoming. Eggs Florentine to die for, loaded with fresh spinach. My family and I loved every bite of our fresh breakfasts which included the baked potato, the oh what mess with brie cheese on top, and the eggs Florentine. Definitely a must when at the shore!

Used to be good. Just not anymore. The waitstaff is nice, but it has changed over the past year. Much better choices are around, we love Turning Point and some other places.
