We get to Atlantic City a couple of times a year and we always make a point to go to breakfast at Gilchrist on every trip. They have the best pancakes. Their other breakfast specials are outstanding as well. In the summer they can get very crowded and you probably will have a wait but they do have an outside... More

3rd generation restaurant. The staff outstanding and they have the best blueberry pancakes in town. You can sit outside over looking the back bay of Atlantic City or you can sit inside your call.

Husband loved the thin hot cakes. Super friendly staff from the minute you walk in. You can tell they are a local place and that the staff has got their act together. They work well together and are all happy to be there which creates a happy atmosphere.

Had the crab omelet, do not get it. It is more of a quiche folded over, I don't like quiche. Tasted of crab but could not find any crab pieces. The potatoes had no taste at all. Can tell they are frozen, but so much more can be done to spice them some. Idea, old bay? Honestly the people were... More

Location is on the water with outdoor seating. Closed in November, but definitely a great place to sit in the spring or summer. Pancakes are thin, light and crisp on the outside. Blueberries are local. French toast was also good, but not as good as pancakes. Prices are reasonable. Service was courteous and helpful. Restaurant is casual. Worth the visit!

I have had great luck with places to eat found on Tripadvisor and this place was no different. Had the special, Banana Walnut French Toast, with bacon and home fries and was not disappointed at all. Hubby had the Crab, Spinach and Cheddar Omelette and he loved it too. The kids had menu items which they found very good as... More
