Uncle Wills is my favorite restaurant for breakfast, which is the only meal I've had here. I always order Tom's choice, which consists of an omelet with chicken, peppers, onion, and mozzarella, and buckwheat pancakes with blueberries and nuts. Other family members have ordered different...More

Don't let the word "Pancake" throw you off when it comes to dinner. We have found Uncle Wills to be one of the very best values for dinner in the Beach Haven area. The early bird special, (make reservations to be seated before 6:30pm) overs...More

Breakfast, what can I say? It is a great place for anything from pancakes to eggs. If you go out for breakfast, this is the place to go. They offer call ahead seating which is great. They are also open for dinner, but we did...More

We were seated promptly, had good service, and enjoyed a great breakfast. Generally speaking, breakfast food is hard to screw up; that being said, UW's boasts several components of the breakfast experience that are excellent, most notably the home fries. Will definitely return.

So sorry about the above post about Austria; I have no idea how that got posted under Uncle Will's restaurant when it wasn't part of my review. Just ignore it!

2017 Marks Tom's 23rd year as the proprietor of Uncle Will's. In 1996, Margie came to Beach Haven. She worked as a hostess the summer of 1996 and soon after Tom & she started dating. They married in 1999 and have been working side by side at Uncle Will's ever since. Along with the ever growing and changing Uncle Will's staff/family, they have maintained the original charm of Uncle Will's & have added some updates (including dinner in 2007!) That have helped Uncle Will's to be a mainstay in town & a special place for families to return to each year when they vacation on LBI.

When Sandy hit in October, 2012, Uncle Will's was flooded by over four feet of water. It was a sad & devastating event but thanks to months of endless work, Tom rebuilt Uncle Will's with the help of talented friends, Filemon, Willie, and multiple professionals whose skills and labor brought Uncle Will's back to life. We reopened in March, 2013 and are glad to be a part of the community again.

The history of Uncle Will's would not be complete without recognizing, with true gratitude & love, our loyal customers. We have been fortunate to have met such wonderful people through the years. Families have grown before our eyes! We've shared in your laughter and joy, your tears and sadness, & we look forward to seeing you every time you enter our door. We cannot thank you enough for your support. And to all of the customers we are meeting for the first time, "Welcome!"
