A diner/restaurant I had been dying to go for a while was Amy’s Omelet house. I have seen signs and read reviews since moving to New Jersey. Now that we live 2 miles away, it made complete sense to finally get there. I don’t know why it had been on the back burner for so long because after going it quickly became one of my new favorite restaurants!
Amy’s omelet house is very well decorated. The walls are brightly decorated with a nautical theme (from down the shore). It’s very open and clean.
The staff was extremely friendly. While I think the waitress might have forgotten our table a few times, I have no real complaints. We got there on a weekday night and there were only two other parties in the restaurant. It was nice because it was peaceful and quiet.
To be honest, for a diner Amy’s omelet house doesn’t have the best coffee. I was surprised! I was given two refills and looked at like I was nuts when I asked for a refill. It wasn’t terrible coffee but it wasn’t great either. I was left somewhat disappointed. Luckily it was the only item in the restaurant I thought was sub par.
They have over 200 different omelet combinations as well as pancakes, dinner entrees and salads! Obviously the main staple for them is omelets. It took me over 15 minutes to figure out which omelet I wanted. Tim literally closed his eyes and pointed to one to make a decision but I looked over each and every combination. Did I want a lox omelet, crab, lobster or asparagus? So many choices.
I ordered the Nova Lox omelet (smoked salmon, cheese, onions and scallions). It came with a side of toast and I ordered a fresh fruit cup. This was truly one of the best omelets I have had. It was filling and perfect. I am extremely happy with my decision and it was honestly the best omelet I have had in a while.
Something that also impressed me was the fresh fruit cup. It came with actual fresh fruit (blackberries, blueberries, fresh pinapple). It was clear the restaurant was not using canned products for their fresh fruit.
We ordered a vanilla milkshake as well. I thought the milkshake was good. I really enjoyed how sweet the vanilla ice cream was. It wasn’t the best milkshake I’ve ever had but it was still good. My favorite part was it came in a Texas boot…it made me miss Texas (but not really).
I ordered the smoked salmon omelet (obviously salmon is more expensive) and subbed in the fresh fruit cup and coffee and milkshake. My meal was about 18 and Tim’s was 12. It’s certainly not cheap diner fare but it was worth it. Together we were about 30 dollars. I think I have the magic ability to order the most expensive things at restaurants every time…
Overall thoughts: A-
Would I come back?
Yes, Amy’s Omelet house has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants. I will be back very soon and very often. I absolutely recommend it. If you go, let me know and we can go together.
Questions for you:
What is your favorite kind of omelet?
Do you tend to order the most expensive thing on the menu or is that a problem only I have?
