Excellent Breakfast

The corned beef hash was delicious!! Fresh corn beef with onions, peppers and potatoes. The portion sizes are large. One pancake is plate size and delicious. The service is excellent. The coffee is also delicious! It is worth the wait to enjoy breakfast at Ms. Carolyn's.

This the breakfast "hub" of the island-accessible, friendly, loads of locals. Very popular for breakfast. I've been there several times. The pancakes are good-huge (plate-sized), good, and well-priced. The other breakfast dishes are very pedestrian, indistinguishable from a run of the mill diner. Recently, my toast was mushy, barely warm, not buttered (the tiny butter packets on the table were... More

Corned beef and hash was delicious and service was great! Even with the crowd our server was friendly, food was served in a timely manner.

We had a great breakfast at Miss Carolyn's! The service was great, the food excellent and plentiful. We had the shrimp and grits and it was very rich and tasty. Definitely more than one person could eat in a sitting. I also tried the coconut cake and it was delicious. This location is in a somewhat deserted strip shopping center... More

Went for breakfast while visiting. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but great food. I got the Crab Omelette & it was delicious. Everything was fresh & the crab meat tasted like it just came out of the sea. Highly recommend.

Well, I don't know about the cake or about the lunch, for that matter, but the breakfast that our group of four had here was pretty much average, pretty much just okay. But then again, how spectacular can eggs and such actually be? We were staying at a beach resort and decided one morning to eat out instead of at... More

I have eaten at Ms. Carolyn's s several times and have never had a meal I didn't enjoy. Yesterday when I stopped in for breakfast the server mentioned they had shrimp and grits with spinach, mushrooms, cheese, sausage and gravy, etc... It sounded delicious so I ordered it immediately. The food came out quickly and I must say, it was... More

I asked if breakfast could still be served, the server stated lunch only. Another couple arrived shortly after us and asked the same question. Ordered lunch entrees of Open... More
