The food was awesome, but the portions are huge. Enough to share. Good luck deciding, as they have everything on the menu...

Went for breakfast/lunch after playing golf. Cant beat the 250 omelets and if you want something no on the menu they will make it for us. Be aware they are not skimpy with the food and some of the breakfasts are big enough for two. The wait staff are wonderful.

Have mostly eaten breakfast here sporadically over 20 years, consistently decent. Large portions, large variety of choices, OK service (very experienced = some doing this a little too long), decent food but occasionally too greasy. An eclectic decorating mix of whatever was at the last garage sale that comes together as a cozy cluttered down home Jersey Shore comfortable family... More

Went there for brunch with coworkers. Great food and even better portions. I don't think I will have to eat the rest of the day. I will definitely go again next time I'm in Brielle for business.

Mariners cove may be alittle tight inside. It may have a wait at times but they know how to move food. They have great waitresses who have worked there for years.. It is by far the best breakfast place going. There selection is huge. Portions are generous. All other places sandwich wise cant measure up to my julian sandwich with... More

We decided to try Mariner's Cove after driving by on so many occasions. We were told a 15 minute wait and 15 minutes it was. Not bad for a holiday weekend morning. The waitress was very helpful going over an overwhelming menu and making suggestions along the way. My husband decided on the very berry crepes and a potato pancake... More

Our friends wanted us to experience this place & I am so glad we did. It's fairly small, cozy with a nautical atmosphere. The breakfast portions are huge. My husband ordered the 2 eggs, hash, home fries & toast. I just ordered a side of canadian bacon which was 4 thick pieces. We had more than enough to share. The... More

A weekday morning, few people in the place, wait staff huddled at one end of the counter talking and laughing. We were seated at a booth with hard wooden benches and a sticky table top. The hostess asked for our drink order - waters and coffees - and brought the coffee. When I walked over to the end of the... More

This place was packed out the door. I was by myself so I walked in to ask about the wait, because I was alone, I was seated immediately. Server was prompt, listened well and brought out my omelet fast. It was good, homefries were also tasty but a bit greasy. Coffee was only fair. Not a quiet, relaxing place to... More

Good food, good size portions and decent prices. Very busy in the summer months on the weekends, always a line outside.
