Steve has a real and deep love for the Bel Air. He takes care of it like it is one of his children. Its always such a nice experience to stay there.

I am glad that so many other people continue to enjoy Groff's because it is still a truly iconic Wildwood institution.  Wink  George  

 
It truly is George! It was one of my folk's favorite places to eat when I was a kid, and it holds a lot of memories for me. I'm amazed that the business is still there all these years and hardly changed at all in that time!
Stop on by when we're there in two weeks and we'll sneak a slice of their pie out to you!  Cheesy

One of the few negatives about living down here in summer is not being able to collect things like those motel parking permits.

I never stayed at the Bel-Air, though I spoke with Steve the owner probably about 5 years ago one evening while he was vacuuming the pool.  I thanked him for not selling to a developer in the demolition years, and we talked a little about the motel.  He really seems to appreciate the place...

Love those Reges permits Martin! Especially the one from 1989, because I definitely recognize the font… my mind reacted to it like a tuning fork  Wink

 
Thanks Kathi.  I have some others too, though I don't know if I have one from trips before 1989.

I'm sure Groff's is a great place if you like that kind of food, but nothing on their menu knocks me out. Not big on the "Merigan" food which Groff's seems to be famous for. I am glad that so many other people continue to enjoy Groff's because it is still a truly iconic Wildwood institution.  Wink        George

For anyone who hasn't been a Bel-Air guest yet, the confirmation package they mail you is unbelievable. There are six different little notices and records in the postcard-sized envelope—nothing terribly slick, but INCREDIBLY neat and precise like you don't see any more. I'm talking *penmanship.* Goosebumps!  Grin

 
Now that is something I have all in one place, just like we were talking about the parking permits. I have all the confirmation envelopes together from the last four years!

I usually keep our parking permits, just not in the same place.... I know the last 4 years worth are in my Wildwood drawer in my desk, the rest are somewhere in the house... undecided

That's our goal too. Try something new each vacation, while still fitting in our favorites! This year we have 5 days in WW, so it gives us some room to fit a couple of new lunch places, and of course the reason for this thread, a boardwalk dinner. And it gives us a chance to share with everyone here in case someone else was thinking of trying the same place. Like those of you who still have not eaten at GROFF'S!!!  Grin Grin
