In addition to having some of the best breakfast food, I had the pleasure of eating dinner here, my meal was fantastic, the service was awesome, they are friendly, and helpful. It isn't fancy, but that isn't what I want in a neighborhood gem. I want to walk in, feel at home and enjoy a well cooked dinner. The heart... More

Stopped here for dinner while in Atlantic City for a conference. A nice family run restaurant with an older clientele of neighbors (visited in the off season). Good happy hour specials and well prepared food. Not really gourmet but good comfort food with a seafood theme. Nice place for a good dinner.

At the very most tip of the island, stands this little gem. Very popular with the locals, as you can tell by the always popular wait on Sundays for breakfast. Food and selection always delish....!!

We were originally going to another restaurant during our overnight trip, but it was closed. We call Pirate's Den, they got us right in, and all five of us raved about the meal! Sweet potato soup, the crab stuffed flounder, the blacked Mahi, all fantastic. And they understood we were heading for a concert and made sure we were good... More

We went twice in one week. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The fish was done just right.

We went here twice: once for breakfast and again for lunch in early October 2016. The "Den" is located across from the beach and has its charm there, but it ends there....the restaurant is in a small, overcrowded house (?). Tables are too close together, and the atmosphere just appears worn and too tired . Meal portions are OK, but... More

The food was good but the service could have been a little better. I have a dairy allergy and when I told my server I thought they put cheese in my eggs she was very obviously annoyed at me.

All our breakfasts were really good but my daughter found a hair in her pancakes. Also, her friend ordered a glass of milk which was sour. We were comped for both items but still. This was only our second time there so I'm hesitant to return. The first time, we had absolutely no problems therefore the average rating.
