Location is on the water with outdoor seating. Closed in November, but definitely a great place to sit in the spring or summer. Pancakes are thin, light and crisp on the outside. Blueberries are local. French toast was also good, but not as good as pancakes. Prices are reasonable. Service was courteous and helpful. Restaurant is casual. Worth the visit!

Hole in the wall on the dock with a heated outdoor deck and incredible pancakes. Ask for the home fries well done. Bacon was perfectly cooked. All you can ask for and cheaper than casinos by a mile.

This little gem is the best breakfast place in all Atlantic City. We've been coming for the last couple of years. The food is delicious. Service is fast but you don't feel rushed. Cheap too.

Gilchrist's is only open for breakfast and lunch. And on weekends it is very busy. The omelets were nothing special, but the pancakes were great.
