I had a great time at lunch at the Chatterbox. Opened in 1937, I wanted to see how much of its history still remains. A fair amount, it seems. Still has a counter, waitress service, fountain-style beverages, and a 1950-ish menu. All good, as far...More

We ate breakfast here this morning. We ate at the tables on the sidewalk outside. Their breakfasts are delicious and reasonably priced for the beach. The food is much better quality than that of other places on the boardwalk. Would definitely eat there again.
