Fun but crowded place for breakfast

Extremely crowded by tourists and locals, this decorative place serves great breakfasts in a old-fashioned cowboy atmosphere. Staff is efficient, which they have to be with all these hungry folks. Best breakfast in the area for a decent price.

I really enjoyed the food here. My family and I came here a couple of times from our B&B in Mill Bay and I tried all their meals too, so good. Service was good, area was clean. Best pecan pie.

I had bison burger and yam fries and liked both. Others in the party had prime rib and devoured it. My son had creole cod which had some good heat to it. Watermelon salad. Spinach and creamy mashed potatoes rounded out the menu. Would eat here again.

We have been here for breakfast and brunch several times. Service is prompt, and the servers are friendly. Very reasonable prices and lots of food. We sit by the fireplace when the weather is cool and rainy. Usually very busy for breakfast, which is a good sign.

Went there for dinner with my wife recently. I just had a couple of starters: Crab cakes and a bowl of clam chowder. Both very good. I definitely recommend this place.

My son and I eat Sunday Brunch here about once a month. It is always very good (I always get an omelette) and coffee refills are prompt. There can be a bit of a wait as lots of families are enjoying a relaxing meal. I do not hesitate to recommend the Pioneer House to anyone in the area looking for... More

First off, the waitress screwed our order up, then never did bring our drinks. We had to ask another waitress for them. Then the food came...not one, nor two, but three beard hairs in my food...could have been more but I didn't look. I saw the chefs in the kitchen, all with beards, and the one chef was rubbing/scratching his... More

She gave me slice of Oyster sandwich and it was amazing! I liked interior of this restaurant a lots. Log cabin style, a lots of stuffed... More

I frequently stop by this restaurant for lunch. Their soup and sandwich specials are wonderful. You will never go away hungry because their portions are excellent. The soups are really flavorful and served nice and hot. The plates are always warmed up as well so if you are having a toasted sandwich, it does not get cold. The servers seem... More

I had to give this place 5 stars because 11 members of my family went for Father's Day Brunch; they put together a big table for us on the patio, and every single person enjoyed their food and had a good experience. In a group that size, it is unusual if *no one* has a complaint about the food or... More
