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!"

This place is always packed in the morning, and empty-ish at night. I can't speak for the dinner, but the breakfast was amazing. We went with my little brother who got chocolate chip banana pancakes, I got french toast, and my mother got the redneck benedict. We all loved our choices. The biscuits were light and fluffy, the pancakes and french toast the same. Nothing was heavy with grease, the eggs were cooked to perfection, even with my mother asking for specific level of doneness. The chocolate chips were semi sweet and perfect, not tooth-achingly sweet, same with the french toast. The coffee was decent, if weak, and kept coming. It was very busy, but the service was very polite and friendly. You will probably have to wait, but it is definitely worth it for the food.

Saw lots of families with children, and the atmosphere is cute with all the pig themed decor.

Another thing, this place is cash or check ONLY. Which we found out when going to pay, though they were nice enough to let one of us run to the grocery store down the block and get cash from the atm.

Uncle Will's has a wide variety of pancakes though I was a bit disappointed that the different pancake types (e.g. Strawberry, apple) were toppings to the pancakes and not cooked inside. Still, the pancakes were really excellent and very large. The food was served fairly quickly but we weren't rushed to leave even though it was a busy Sunday morning.
