Restaurant Review

Mustache Bills is the affordable eatery of choice for the local fishing community and vacationers during the warmer time of the year.

Located on the north end of Long Beach Island, a few blocks from the famous Barnegat Lighthouse on Long Beach Island, this authentic Jersey diner has been the life owner Bill Smith who started as a teenager washing dishes and later took over ownership in 1972.

Mustache Bill's is extremely friendly in a down home way, and the food is well prepared and reasonably priced. They have recently been named by the James Beard Foundation as a winner of the "America's Classics' award given to down home eateries.

If you spend any time in the Long Beach Island area and are looking for a good place to have breakfast or lunch, visit Mustache Bill's, it's a must.

Their pancakes and omelets are well prepared and tasty.

The popular favorites are the Huge Three-Egg Omelet served with a wide variety of ingredients choices. The Potato Skin Omelet with home fries, cheddar cheese, bacon, scallions and sour cream is especially tasty; as is the Crab, Mushroom, and Cheese Omelet with grits and lots of lumps of the local blue-claw crab meat

Mustache Bills's is open daily during July & August,  from Thursday  Thru Monday, 6am -3pm.  Tuesday  & Wednesday, from 6am - 12 noon for Breakfast only
Open Weekends September, October, November, March, April, May & June, on Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, 6am -3pm
Closed December, January, & February

During the warmer summer months, expect a long wait for a table.
