A few weeks ago I made up my mind that I wanted to go to the Shore Diner in Egg Harbor Township. When I originally 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.
The outside 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 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.
The waitress was friendly. She refilled out 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.
I ordered two beverages. 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.
The Shore diner has an extremely overwhelming and large menu. 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 large the burger was. The Tex-Mex burger had half an avocado which was awesome.
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 definitely 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.
For my coffee, burger and carrot cake the cost was $20 which isn’t bad for everything I received. However, I wouldn’t order the cake again.
Summary/Would I come back?
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.
