Hubby, Aunt, and me went for breakfast here. It was so good! The place needs some updating and they should maybe talk to the complex owners to spruce up the outside but its all good otherwise. Very good biscuits & gravy.

Offers allot of options for breakfast. Always a family favorite. Very casual atmosphere. Even has an old fashion counter that is fun to sit at.

If your breakfast needs something a notch above the run of the mill, Blue Dolphin is certainly on your list. Great omelets, usually including a seafood speciality... Caution! The wait can be intolerable especially in season, or on holiday weekends, but it is usually with the wait. I love the egg white omelet with fresh veggies and very dry. Great... More

The food was above average. Could not tell if frozen premade items were used, so I suspect they were not. Hubby had chicken fried steak for breakfast and ate every bite. I had apple cinnamon pancakes with eggs. Left very full.

Good food. You might have to wait because the locals are eating here too. Worth the wait though. Decent portions for the price.

We had breakfast here twice on our stay. Couldn't finish our plates either time. My husband had the French toast one day he loved it. I had the chocolate chip pancakes so yummy. Both mornings I had the hot chocolate. All the servers were very friendly even remembered us the 2nd day.

Had breakfast there. My husband had bacon, eggs and pancakes. The bacon didn't taste like bacon so he didn't eat it. The eggs were fine but the pancakes were just o.k. His coffee mug had a large chip in it, so we asked for a replacement which was cheerfully supplied. I had eggs, grits, and an English muffin which were... More

While the service was good the good was OK. All of your basic breakfast items you can make at home are here but without any special touches or interesting flavors. Overpriced for the underwhelming food. Not any other breakfast options on Longboat that we knew of, but I think next time we will head to Anna Maria for better options.... More
