I didn't like the food, my DH did. I went into the non-working filthy ladies room around the back. Wish I didn't. Enough said. I'm not going back. Sorry.

We ate here for breakfast after our resort staff recommended it. If you're looking for an authentic diner experience this will give you that. It was very crowded. If you see a table - grab it! Don't wait to be seated. The servers and cooks are friendly but it is a hustle-bustle diner for certain. The food was average. I'm... More

This is a pretty basic place, but the food is really good, not fancy but done right. The service is great as well. They were pretty packed, so likely popular. Worth visiting if you want just a good, well priced breakfast and no frills. The bathrooms are not very nice though (part of an old run down building)...but minor relative... More

Tiny almost diner-like setting. Good food and big hearty portions at a super cheap price. They were super busy on a Saturday morning so service was slow but the food was worth it. Try and get there early.

This is a great place to grab a quick breakfast before starting your day fishing, diving, or whatever floats your boat. This is a waffle house type grill breakfast with great pancakes, eggs and bacon or sausage. We ate here twice during our stay. The wait staff is friendly and fast!

This place has the best blueberry pancakes I've ever had! Nice and fluffy and not mealy! The home fries are delicious and let me tell you about the coffee! I drink decaf and even that was awesome. I couldn't stop drinking it! Great service and excellent food. We tried to go back on our last day in Marathon which was... More

Its usually crowded, you may have to wait for a table to be cleared ( but sit down and claim it anyhow! ) they are not always the fastest to get your order but it is worth it .. totally. The nicest and friendliest service you could ask for, biscuits and gravy that you need a team of sherpas to... More

We are here almost very morning of our stay. Basic diner breakfast but better than the other local places. It's very small but worth it if you go.
