In the heart of Downtown Ocean City
The Varsity Inn building was built in 1905 and has served as a Methodist retreat, a one room schoolhouse, and a private residence. After World War II, it was the Florida Inn Restaurant. In the 1960's, it was the White Whale Coffee House, a place for locals and visitors to "hang out." In 1969, the Symonds Family purchased the property and the Varsity Inn Restaurant celebrated its first summer in 1970. This old building has served many generations of Ocean City locals and visitors alike. Unfortunately, she needed some tender, loving care and a facelift. We hope you like our new, bright, and clean dining room, as it is our hope to bring customers the same caring service and great American food they are accustomed to.
Home of the famous Baked Jersey Tomato Soup.
Our creamy soup is enhanced with chunks of tomatoes and topped with garlic croutons, topped with cheese and baked until it's golden brown.
Not a local but love our soup? No problem!
We've got you covered.
You can purchase ANY of our soups in a pint or quart. The pints and quarts are packaged and served cold, and yes - you can freeze them. We even include a side of shredded cheddar cheese and our homemade croutons on the side to ensure you get the same great taste at home!
