Shore Diner (Egg Harbor Township)

Shore Diner (Egg Harbor Township)

A few weeks ago, I made up my mind that I wanted to go to the Shore Diner in Egg Harbor Township.  When I initially put the directions into my phone, it said it was 30 minutes away.  When we got to the destination, we realized the directions had been inaccurate and still had another 20 miles to go.  In the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t the worst thing but try telling that to a hungry person.

Shore Diner Atmosphere: A
The outside of the Shore Diner was a giant square building with a lot of tinted Windows.  Honestly, I think there could be a flood and nothing would get through.  The inside of the Shore Diner was huge with plenty of seating.  It was neat to sit in diagonal booths.  It makes sense as Egg Harbor Township is close to the shore.

Shore Diner Service: A
The waitress at the Shore Diner was friendly.  She refilled our drinks as much as we needed.  The food also came out incredibly fast.  For our meals, we waited less than 7 minutes.  Everything about the service was impressive.

Shore Diner Coffee: A
I ordered two beverages at the Shore Diner. First, since it is a diner I ordered a coffee with whipped cream.  The coffee was brewed from the local Lacas coffee in Pennsauken, NJ.  Anytime a diner has local Lacas coffee; it’s hard to mess that up.  The waitress brought out plenty of refills, and I have no complaints.

Shore Diner Food: A
The Shore diner menu is massive. They have everything from breakfast to sandwiches to lots of seafood options and even Pad Thai.  I’ve never seen a diner with Pad Thai before!

I was craving a burger and sweet potato fries, so I settled upon the Tex-Mex Burger.  I enjoyed how crispy the fries were and how massive the burger was.  The Tex-Mex burger had half an avocado which was awesome.

Shore Diner Dessert: D
I split a piece of carrot cake.  I was expecting a dense piece of carrot cake, but honestly, it was hard and crusty.  I wanted to like it, but it tasted as if it had been sitting for several days.  It wasn’t as bad as the Red Lion Diner, but I wouldn’t order it again. The Shore Diner prides themselves on homemade desserts, but their dessert had been sitting too long, and I was extremely disappointed.

Shore Diner Price: $
For my coffee, burger and carrot cake the cost was $20, which isn’t bad for everything I received.  The Shore Diner has good food and a great spot if you are going down the shore. However, I wouldn’t order the cake again.

Summary/Would I come back to the Shore Diner (Egg Harbor Township)?
The food was good, but I would probably skip dessert or try something else.  It’s a great stop for anyone Egg Harbor Township it is worth the stop.

  1. What’s the deal with sub-par diner desserts lately? This is unacceptable! The burger looks delicious, though. When in doubt, more avocado!
