Ship Bottom, Long Beach Island, New Jersey: The LBI Pancake House, located at 2111 Long Beach Boulevard in Ship Bottom, is now open under new ownership. The Pancake House will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm until their grand opening on June 23, after which they will be open 7 days a week. The Bilcik family purchased the LBI Pancake House on May 7, 2018 from the Waldron family, who ran the staple Long Beach Island breakfast spot for ten years.

The Bilcik family has been spending their summer vacations on Long Beach Island for 25 years and each time, they say the LBI Pancake House was their first stop for breakfast. Now, after over two decades and several generations of vacationing on LBI, the Bilcik’s are honored to join the local community and continue the legacy of the Pancake House.

“Thank you so much to the Waldron Family for all their years with the LBI Pancake House, and for passing the ceremonial ‘spatula’ on to our family,” Victor Bilcik said in a statement. “Our family is so excited and are so grateful for this opportunity, to keep a tradition alive and continue to make fantastic memories while meeting and making friends old and new. And of course, thank you to all our loyal and future customers.”

The new owners of the LBI Pancake House are pleased to offer a 20 percent discount to Veterans, service members, and first responders, as well as a 10 percent discount to LBI lifeguards. Eligible guests may enjoy these discounts on weekends until June 23, after which these discounts will be available Monday through Friday. See management for details.

Victor and his wife Christine have dreamed of owning a restaurant for as long as they can remember. As the grand opening approaches, they said they never could have imagined that 25 years after their first time at the Pancake House, they would be fulfilling their dream at the iconic island landmark.

“When our kids were young, they always called the Pancake House ‘our restaurant’ when we came down for our family vacations,” Victor said. “Now it is.”

About the LBI Pancake House: The LBI Pancake House is a premiere destination on Long Beach Island for all things breakfast.
