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

True Diner feel---Great short order meals. My home fries were really something special! Large chunks and slices seasoned well, then deep fried. Excellent! My eggs were done perfectly to order. Bacon (crisp and dry), Link sausage was very ordinary, but good. Price was very reasonable. For the large amount of customers, food came out quickly and service was with a... More

The Beach Diner is in the heart of San Marco, with both inside and outside seating. It is very popular on Sunday mornings, especially for the after-church crowd. We had a pork chop with vegetables along with the crab and shrimp omelet with hollandaise sauce, which was very tasty. The service is good but a bit slow when it gets... More

We always enjoy stopping here for breakfast or lunch. I especially enjoy the omelets. It can get crowded during prime-times, but well worth the wait.

Stop by here every year while attending the Ga-Fl football game. Very friendly staff and very good food. Enjoy this spot routinely. Hotel desk clerk recommended another spot this morning and we tried it, sad to say. It doesn't compare to the Beach Diner.

The breakfast hot and great. Pancakes is my favorite they were fluffy just like i like them. People were very nice and inviting. Fresh squeezed orange juice always gets my vote. I will return.
