There are times, however, when Wally's service is slow when there's no excuse for... More

My husband and I found ourselves very off season at the Jersey shore for a conference. We came upon Wallys and we're delighted. Had dinner there...fresh food, beautifully prepared and served in a friendly, bright atmosphere. Very reasonably priced, I might add. Went again the next day for lunch...same thing. Happy to review this place most favorably.

We had breakfast yesterday and lunch today at Wally's, a casual, laid-back restaurant right in Surf City. Both times, we were very well taken care of by Jess H., who's a mix of friend, cousin, great neighbor and all-round likeable person.

Wonderful New England clam chowder, delicious veggie quesadillas and great service from Annette. Cozy and comfortable atmosphere. It's a great family place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The crumb cake is outstanding!

We went to Wally's for early bird dinner a couple of times. Not expecting anything fancy, they had a nice menu and the staff, especially our waitress Linda, the first time were extremely helpful & friendly. If just for the service, I would rate this a 5+. Based upon everything else, we were expecting great food, however when we got... More
