Recently I celebrated my 150th New Jersey diner. After asking several people where I should go, it all went out of the window because both my husband and I had off of work on the same day. We had always wanted to go to the Wildwoods, so we settled upon the Marvis Diner.
The Atmosphere of the Marvis Diner is typical of any beachy New Jersey shore town. The outside is a rustic, cute, beach looking building while the inside is a large open run with several booths as well as a full-length bar. There is an outdoor patio as well.
Right off the bat, I can say the service at Marvis Diner was one of the best I’ve had. The waitress was outgoing, funny and friendly. She brought out plenty of drink refills, and our food came out extremely quickly. In all of the diners I’ve been too, this was in the top 3 best services.
There is nothing unique or special about the coffee, but it is good. The waitress refilled my coffee often. At first, she brought a small coffee mug but ended up bringing out a large to go cup instead. How can I argue with that?
The Marvis Diner has plenty of options. They have breakfasts as well as a good amount of lunch and dinner options too. The menu is about 5 pages long which makes it far less overwhelming.
I decided to go big or go home and ordered the “Jackpot” which came with 2 eggs, 2 sausages, bacon, French toast, pancakes and tater tots. The waitress highly recommended the tots because how many diners have that?
Yes, all of that food and it was massive. I had run about 5 miles in the morning and finished most of everything (I took about half of the tots home). Everything was cooked well, and I will say the French toast was one of the best I’ve had in any diner.
For my Jackpot special and coffee, the price was $18. Is that one of the biggest breakfast meals I’ve ever had in my life? Yes. Was it good and worth the price? Also yes.
I liked the Marvis Diner, and I would definitely come back. It’s one of my top five diners in south jersey and definitely in the top in the state. I highly recommend it.
