After the Belmar Chase last month, we decided to head to the Blue Swan Diner. I realized I had never entered Ocean Township until going there. We arrived at the Blue Swan Diner around 11:30 on a Saturday and it wasn’t that busy. We immediately found a seat. That was a pleasant surprise because I assumed Saturday at brunch might be crowded. The Blue Swan Diner is a family-owned and operated business.
Blue Swan Diner Atmosphere: A
The Blue Swan Diner is cute. They have their swan emblem on everything. It looks modern, clean and nice. There is a big salad bar in the center as well as a bakery in the back. I haven’t been to a diner with an all you can eat salad bar so it was a unique addition. It was cute and I can appreciate a diner that runs with their theme.
Blue Swan Diner Service: D
The waitress was not the greatest. She forgot our drink orders and only came back once o bring us the food. She seemed upset that she was at work and gave off a sour vibe. I felt as if we were annoying her by dining at the Blue Swan Diner.
Blue Swan Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at the Blue Swan Diner was okay but not great. There was nothing unique about it, in fact I forgot to take a photo until later. Luckily I received one refill for the entire meal so I could double back and take a picture. The coffee wasn’t good or bad, but I do wish I received more than one refill.
Blue Swan Diner Food: A
The Blue Swan Diner menu has everything a stereotypical diner would have. There are all day breakfast menu specials, lunch menu specials, and dinner. The Blue Swan Diner has all of your modern diner staples.
The food at Blue Swan Diner saved them from a negative experience. Everything looked fresh and it was delicious. They had everything from breakfast staples to lunch and dinner.
After the race, the eggs, sausage, hash brown and toast special sounded good to me. I honestly can’t remember the last time I had breakfast sausage. It was delicious. I have been in an “over hard” egg mood lately. The only thing that could have made it better would have been marbled rye toast. The food was great and I have no complaints.
Blue Swan Diner Cost: $
For the coffee and meal, it was $13. Something I found interesting was the restaurant charged an extra dollar for each coffee with whipped cream. I’ve never come across that before, but it makes sense.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back to the Blue Swan Diner:
I’m disappointed with the service of the restaurant but the food was good. I would probably come back in hopes the waitress was having a better day.
