A great breakfast Place!

This is a quaint restaurant with wooden booths and fast moving staff. There is usually a line up to get in for breakfast! The menu has a variety of tasty items and the price is very reasonable. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

First of all, the service is excellent! Very friendly servers. Large mugs of really good coffee. Breakfast wraps are great, scrambled eggs, cheddar & bacon, yum. The shanty sandwich is also delicious, scrambled eggs, ham, peppers, onions & cheddar on toast. Good people watching spot if you can snag one of the three outside tables. It's a very popular spot...

Walked into the beach shanty café on a whim and a suggestion from the host at the restaurant next-door. My girlfriend and I had to wait a moment for a table to be cleared. The place was full (this is a good sign). Typical breakfast items made well and tasted great. We went here on Friday the 13th and returned... More

Our airport transportation driver suggested that this was the best place to have breakfast along the strip which our hotel was situated. It was a great recommendation. We wanted a filling breakfast to start our day and The Beach Shanty Café was just the place. Very casual atmosphere. Décor was nice and the staff provided quick and friendly service. We... More

A group of 7 of us stopped for and early lunch as it has good ratings on trip advisor, and the place was packed. We willingly divided our group to be served promptly as we had young children with us. Many folks were eating breakfast and they looked delicious. The customer service was excellent and the food was very good.... More

We ordered the pancakes for our 2-year-old son and to our surprise, they came in the shape of Mickey Mouse! Now when we ask our son what he wants for breakfast, he says Mickey Mouse pancakes :-)
