Convenient, well priced breakfast on the island!

Back for breakfast and its very good! Convenient breakfast spot on the island, although more places are offering breakfast. Might need to step it up a notch or increase portion sizes. The quality of the food is excellent as always. Breakfast pricing is very reasonable for the island. Come back... read more

My wife and I stopped in for a BBQ pork sandwich while our son and grandson were on the beach. Oh wow, great smoke flavor and plenty of chunky pork butt. This place was not pretty outside, but the inside was very clean and nice. We only had the sandwiches but they were huge and delicious. Service was good but... More

We enjoyed excellent fried shrimp with very good hush puppies. I wasn't particularly impressed with the deviled egg I got as my side but it was a nice option. The salad was fresh. Overall very good eats, excellent service, just an ordinary sort of atmosphere. Good value too.

The waitress was unprofessional and she didn't care about providing us with a thing called hospitality. The food took over 45 minutes to get to us and when it came it wasn't worth what we paid! The restaurant alone was dirty and bathroom needed attention. We should have gone to Harry A's but thought we'd try something different.

Took the family here after a local recommended it. Came in on a Friday evening and was seated right away. Service was very good and we received our food after approximately 20 minutes from placing our order. We ordered a verity of dishes (Shrimp, burgers, and chicken strips) and it was all good. Not one compliant. They do have an... More

We went to this restaurant after swimming and beeing in the beach one late morning. Even though, it was not lunch yet, my husband had dozen oysters with spinach, bacon and parmesan. I had waffle with bacon and saseage. Everything was very tasty. Our waitress Megan was very nice and she took very good care of us. My paps had... More

Disappointment. Go to the Pig, buy your breakfast food and cook it. These people don't want to be here at 900am. BBQ joint and bar trying to make s little more money with early risers. So Debra "they call me Cornbread" waited on us and I knew we were in trouble. She never engaged us. Left off part of the... More

We camped at the State Park for a week and ate here twice - once for lunch and once for breakfast. The seafood tasted fresh and was cooked better than many other places I've eaten (the shrimp po-boy is delish) and all 4 of us enjoyed it. Same for breakfast, very good.

This was the worst food we have ever tried to eat, even the tea was bad! Hamburger tasted freezer burned and on the cusp of spoilage and bbq pork tasted like it had been thrown on a charcoal grill before lighter fluid burned off. We were famished and would have eaten almost anything, but couldn't eat this! Sent it back... More
