Mary's Family Restaurant Reviews
My parents live in Oceanside. Once a month, I come to visit, and it's a requirement that I go to the Longboarder Cafe.
Few restaurants fulfill my family's needs the way this one does, offering a one-of-a-kind neighborhood restaurant experience. But what's brought us back time and again is friendly service and great food.
I had the chicken Mexicali omelet today, and it was fresh and delicious. The service was top-notch, and the meal came with a pleasant atmosphere. This is the place I eat at when in Oceanside.
The chicken-fried steak was my favorite! I luv-luved it. The place has really cool surfboard theme! I'm from South Dakota and I visited Oceanside with my family in early December. We ate at the Longboarder a few times, and I will definitely go back if I get the chance.
I am shocked at the negative reviews. We have been loyal customer since 2004, and I swear the place is awesome. The owner is wonderful, and she goes out of her way to chat with us every time we stop in.The food is wonderful; though breakfast is where they excel, I haven't tried anything that wasn't good and much better than most local restaurants.The service is always good. If you want your own server waiting on your elbow you may be disappointed on peak mornings (before noon on weekends). Still, they are always courteous and concerned. Fast. Maybe not - but as their sign says, they don't do fast food, they do good food, and when the place is full you may wait a bit.I tell you it is worth it.
This is the best place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We have been going to the Longboarder for about 2 years now and the food and service are the best. Give this place a try. You'll walk out full and happy.
The food was mediocre at best. The service was lousy. And the owner is a REAL piece of work: she yelled at us because we had the gall to tell our waitress we did not like the food. (She said she retrieved our rejected food from the trash, tasted it, and found it to be just fine.) We understand that a local merchants group stopped meeting at her restaurant because she was so unaccommodating. There are lots of other nice restaurants in the area; you would be better off selecting one of the others.
I've just eaten at the Longboarder Cafe for the first time since they moved from next to Hobie (Surf Ride). The service and food has really changed. The service was lousy. It took forever to even clean our table from the previous customers. The food was even worse than the service. I ordered the French toast breakfast with a side of biscuts and gravy. I could've sworn that I ordered the child's plate. I got two eggs, two paperthin pieces of bacon and one piece of French toast (two halves). Even the worst restaurant would give you four halves. Now for my biscuits and gravy....I never got them. Not only that I never saw our waiter to tell him. He never showed up again after dumping our food off. So we ate with no drink refills. What a shame. I don't recommend eating there, and I will never go back.
If you sit in the first booth, there is an outlet under the table. Eat all the homemade goodness and you and your phone can recharge. Perfect.
