Description: 2017 Marks Tom's 23rd year as the proprietor of Uncle Will's. In 1996, Margie came to Beach Haven. She worked as a hostess the summer of 1996 and soon after Tom & she started dating. They married in 1999 and have been working side by side at Uncle Will's ever since. Along with the ever growing and changing Uncle Will's staff/family, they have maintained the original charm of Uncle Will's & have added some updates (including dinner in 2007!) That have helped Uncle Will's to be a mainstay in town & a special place for families to return to each year when they vacation on LBI. When Sandy hit in October, 2012, Uncle Will's was flooded by over four feet of water. It was a sad & devastating event but thanks to months of endless work, Tom rebuilt Uncle Will's with the help of talented friends, Filemon, Willie, and multiple professionals whose skills and labor brought Uncle Will's back to life. We reopened in March, 2013 and are glad to be a part of the community again. The history of Uncle Will's would not be complete without recognizing, with true gratitude & love, our loyal customers. We have been fortunate to have met such wonderful people through the years. Families have grown before our eyes! We've shared in your laughter and joy, your tears and sadness, & we look forward to seeing you every time you enter our door. We cannot thank you enough for your support. And to all of the customers we are meeting for the first time, "Welcome!"

“Sit with a Pig”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Liked the entusiasm of the waitperson. Crowded, but call ahead works well, No food complaints! But I did want to sit with the pig- it was otherwise being entertained by some children!

“Cash Only!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Great breakfast option in Beach Haven, but note that it is cash only! If you can get here before 8am on the weekend, you won't have a wait. Go with the pancakes or waffles - always delicious. Also, if you're with kids, ask if the pig can sit with you (there's a large pig that rotates seats).

They also serve dinner, which I've heard is excellent but have yet to try it.

“Very Good Breakfast but...”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

I've eaten here a few times. Staff is friendly, service was prompt. Waitress forgot a side order and brought it out quickly... the breakfast is very good, but I prefer the Chicken or the Egg and here's why:
1: The don't open until 7am (might be only be during off-season).
2: Cash only. OK, I get it. A resort town, cash money is easier on the tax return. Better signage of this would be helpful, better yet, move into the 20th Century.
3: No ATM. If they insist on a cash only business, take some of the tax-saved $$$ and install an ATM.

“Great breakfast place”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Went on a Sunday and there was a 10 minute wait and it was worth it. Food was excellent and Max was an outstanding waiter. Can't wait until he owns his own place in a few years!
