My wife and I usually go here once a week. The food is very good the service is very good and the food is served within a few minutes of ordering. I have tried just about everything on the menu at least once and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal. The one thing we always get... More

Stopped in today after reading great reviews. I had blueberry pancakes which were good but nothing you cant make at home with thin batter. Personally id drive the extra 20 min and go to Shea's Cafe where it will probably be the best breakfast you will EVER have!

If you want great seafood this place to go. Scallops are fresh and the fried oysters are so sweet and tender. You can't beat the the early bird dinner. Looks like you are driving to the bay especially during high tide. You won't be disappointed can't wait to go back

I recall going there and not realizing it was a cash only establishment until after we'd finshed eating. I offered to go to the Wawa and get cash out and was told I could simply return with the cash on my next visit. I was godsmacked that they trusted me to return. I did the very next day and presented... More

As others have said, the location is listed wrong (actually one location in Cologne and one in Atlantic City that apparently didn't get too damaged from Sandy), but the pancakes are THE BEST! Quick service, great food, and cheap prices, what's not to love? I only wish it were closer to where I lived. Some people also specifically say their... More

We stop here every Sunday after church. The Blueberry Hotcakes are the best! Thin crispy edges and HUGE! The Omelettes are light and fluffy filled with what ever you want. The girls that work here are very nice. Its like going to a Familys house for breakfast. Except of course you pay......and the prices are not bad. A must try!... More
