Great local place - Super friendly waitresses!

We went there for the breakfast buffet and because we arrived at 11am, there was also lunch food - so it was a complete brunch! It was a good selection of 'down-home, southern' fare - biscuits and sausage gravy (biscuits were light and delicious), bacon, sausage, eggs, corn bread, roast beef and... read more

Very friendly staff, who seem to know where to find just about anything! We were in a large group and they knew what stores carried what, where to go for a specific thrill and what the local calendar of events were... now THAT'S service! The food is great too

We stopped here on the way out of town after an enjoyable weekend in Gulf Shores. Our memories of the place are a decade old, but it is still the same friendly establishment with an outstanding wait staff and great food. They have a breakfast buffet, but you they have an egg/omlett station to prepare whatever your taste buds desire.... More

After several trips to Gulf Shores we decided to try Hazel's Nook for breakfast. We stopped by there two more times. We were greeted by a very friendly staff. The waitress (Deb) asked if we were with the couple that entered just ahead of us. My wife said no and Deb replied, "They look like a nice couple, you can... More

This is a great place to take the family fir a quick quality breakfast or lunch. I've been coming here for 20 years with mine. We're locals and love this place. It's consistently good and it's mostly the same people which says something. When you walk through that door you become family. The servers joke with everyone and are really... More

We went for breakfast and enjoyed our meal. Basic diner breakfast food, but well done with great service. It lost a star because I think it could have been a little cleaner, but only one because this place was hoppin!!

We stopped on the way home after a couple days at the beach. This was great place. We stopped at the one on E Fort Morgen Rd. Debbie is a hoot! She is what every dinner needs. Friendly, witty and very personable! Breakfast was great! I wish we found this place sooner. We will be back for breakfast and maybe... More

Place is a little small parking is iffy. Buffet was worth wait. All the typical breakfast items, but omelette bar. I love a fresh omelette. Wait staff was friendly. Will definitely go back.

It's a true old-fashioned diner with a buffet or menu options. The food is not exceptional, but you sure won't walk away hungry. It's very family friendly and very affordable. Would definitely return!
