It was a cold and bitter day when I found myself in Seaville, NJ. A lot of shore diners are closed during the winter, so it was hard to find an open diner. Luckily Dino’s Seaville Diner is located right off the Garden State Parkway. The famous Peter G. has ranked Dino’s as one of the best in Cape May County, and I can see why.
The diner itself looks like a traditional cobblestone diner. It isn’t metallic, but it’s a big open diner with plenty of parking. Inside has several booths, tables, and a full-length bar. You walk in near a dessert case which looked good too.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and we were never without it. The waitress made sure we always had hot refills.
We arrived around 4:30 pm, and it was reasonably busy. A little early, but we were also hungry. The menu has everything you need from breakfast, seafood, steak, and healthy options too.
I was craving something warm so started with the snapper soup. I’ve had turtle soup at a few diners, including the Town and Country in Bordentown. It was great. Snapper soup is a fun and unique soup.
Since the original time I went, I’ve been back again. Oddly enough I have found myself in the area two weeks in a row and I liked Dino’s Seaville Diner.
The most recent time, I wasn’t sure what I wanted and decided on a Philly cheesesteak which came with chips. My brother had gotten it previously, and it looked good, so I decided to order it. The cheesesteak was great, and it had plenty of actual cheese and meat. It was also relatively easy to eat, food that is often challenging to eat. In all, I was happy with my choice.
Chips are chips next time I’ll order a different side.
The waitress was one of the best diner waitresses I’ve had. She refilled beverages, and our food came out quickly. Plus she was friendly and made excellent recommendations. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
For my soup, coffee, and cheesesteak the cost was $15.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back?
I enjoyed Dino’s Seville Diner, and I can see why it’s one of the best in the area. I’ll definitely be back soon.
This is diner 165. You can see all here.
