Good buffet breakfast

Wow what a variety of food hot and ready on the breakfast buffet. Omelets were also included in the price of the buffet. My ham and cheese omelet was large and tasty. The wait staff was very cordial and efficient. I think the price was reasonable considering the selection available. I... read more

After leaving Easter Sunday services we decided to grab a quick bite to eat as we were heading to the beach for the day. We stumbled upon Hazels and decided to give it a try. Wow is all we could say! Such a GREAT buffet with breakfast lunch and dinner being served all at once with a special make your... More

If you don't mind a little wait..this little place is the best in town for breakfast. The buffet is loaded with a great variety of foods. If your from the North and have ever wanted to try southern grits their cheese grits are best and that is saying a lot from this southern girl. The staff is always nice and... More

Ordered a couple of sandwiches, waited for about 20 minutes when the cook came out of the kitchen and started to pick food out of the buffet with her fingers and was eating! We left.

4 of us found, after Sunday morning church that competition for a seat at breakfast places in Gulf Shores, AL was fierce. Seems snowbirds love later morning, early lunch "buffets." As visitors to the area, for a week, we found wait times at the first places we stopped, to be as high as 45 min-1 hour. Hazel's seemed, as we... More

My husband and I went to the breakfast brunch buffet at Hazel's. The selection was so-so with half being breakfast items and half lunch items. I was disappointed in the breakfast items. The bacon in particular was not good. The lunch items were much better. It was one of the cheaper meals we had in Gulf Shores and we did... More

Stopped on a Tues. with friends for lunch buffet and the food was very good. It closes at 2:00 PM so get there early. We have also been there for Sunday brunch and that was also very good. Not the problems that some people have stated in their reviews. We will definitely go back.

Stopped in for breakfast. Waitress seemed to be annoyed with us,she had the " hurry up and order" attitude. I chose the breakfast buffet. The bacon was nasty and the sausage was over cooked and tasted bad. The only saving grace was the omelette bar, it was the ONLY item edible. Shame on you for serving slop like that.........no pride... More

We went for breakfast. My husband had bacon and eggs that were good but I had the buffet and omelet. Omelet was over cooked and buffet selections weren't very good. Best thing in the cafe is the biscuits!! They were wonderful!

Buffet food was not hot, all food on the buffet looked like it came out of a can. A hair was found in the cold hashbrowns. Waitress was upset we looked on the menu instead of going straight for the buffet. The cheese on the omelet was not melted and was still cold. Paid $13 a person for a subpar... More
