Would definitely recommend this place. Food is nice and interior is decorated with surf themed attributes. It is close to the beach. Come before 9AM to not wait in the line.

Breakfast and lunch available. I love the burritos breakfast and lunch burritos. The Mexican eggs are delicious and the cheeseburger was awesome. The OC Surf is our first option to eat when in OC. Popularity has increased over the past couple of years and their is normally a line outside, but don't be discouraged, they seat you quickly and it's... More

My in-laws have a shore house in Ventnor, NJ. For this reason my family comes to the Ventnor regularly in the summer, and we always like to try new places. We eat out pretty much every meal at the Shore, so we like to mix it up. We specifically came to the OC Surf Cafe today from for breakfast based... More

We visited here on a Saturday evening around 7:00. The wait was about 20 min for 2. There is seating inside and outside. We chose first available. This grill is walking distance from the boardwalk. We stayed at a B&B that was about 5 blocks away. They offer a wide variety of seafood. They have many specials of the day.... More

For a highly rated place here at trip advisor, we were very disappointed. It was costly. My omelet was hot but lacked flavor and fresh good quality ingredients compared to Augie Omelette, Waffle House and Grill. Coffee was not great. Kids did not care for their meals either. Now my mother in law did get red white blue waffles and... More

Very great breakfast spot! The food is worth the wait. Very busy, but a quick turnover. The employees are very friendly and up beat. The ownership is also very involved. Would love to come back and try more foods. The breakfast home fries were awesome!
