Good breakfasts and good dinners!

Not far from the lighthouse. Build yourself up an appetite by walking along the beach and then stopping here for breakfast. Dogs are allowed in the covered, screened area and they are more than happy to supply them with water. We came back to sample the dinner menu. The barbecued meat was... read more

While on vacation,I ate here with my lady several times. Each time we had a great breakfast. They know how to cook a full breakfast of bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns just the way I like it. They do a good job with their pancakes too. Everything was fresh, including the decaf coffee we asked for. Not a problem, made a... More

They seated our slightly obnoxious group on the patio so we could exaggerate the day's fishing with lots of colorful language. The oysters and grouper sandwich were good. I'll give this place another go next time I am on SGI.

We can't rate anything else but breakfast was awful. The biscuits were microwaved. The sausage gray was terrible. The bacon and ham was good. Wont be back.

We ordered 2 orders of fried grouper, one order of grilled shrimp, one oyster Po Boy, and a kids chicken meal. Overall the meals were good. They were ready when they said and came with all the condiments. Would use again.
