I went with a cheese omelet, home fries, toast and a side of creamed chip beef. All of it was great!! The creamed chip beef is amazing. Found it odd that they did not have lemon wedges, just packets of lemon juice. My husband got pancakes - they were burnt and he was not happy. He will return but not... More

General's has always been a favorite bfast spot for our family. The food literally comes out two minutes after you order it and is delicious. The staff is friendly, and on top of things. The food is a bit pricey for bfast, but worth the stop if you are in OC.

This place is attached to the motel we just stayed in. It was very comical to watch for days people running in and lining up to get in this place like it was the best place to eat on planet earth. We asked the staff of the motel first why is this restaurant so busy for and they claimed because... More

Lately, this restaurant seems to be going down hill. It has always been small and a "push 'em in - push 'em out" kind of place. However, the food is usually good. This past visit, the food was terrible. The scrambled eggs were almost raw (ordered well-done) and we had to sop up the grease from the hash brown potatoes... More

I Have been going to General's Kitchen since I was a little girl, and I still go every time I visit OC. The food is phenomenal, and always worth the wait. And everything is fairly priced, and they do not skimp you on food. You definitely have to try the chipped beef. Even people who have never liked the dish,... More

I don't mind when beach resort restaurants remind their patrons to dress decently but when the first thing you are greeted with is an "in-your-face" sign on the door - NO SHIRT, NO SHOES, NO SERVICE - it grates on my just a bit. There is a friendlier way to convey the same message. So General's Kitchen was already "behind"... More

If you are looking for a GREAT place for breakfast this is the place. Quick service once you are inside, (during summer months expect to wait 10-20 minutes). Small restaurant but great selection of breakfast selections inlcuding: cream chipped beef, omelets, pancakes, etc. They have a great selection of hats on the wall from all over the world, nice to...

General's Kitchen is all I have heard about for a long time. On this last trip to OC, my husband and I decided to go and see what everyone is talking about. They say that the cream chipped beef is amazing, well let me say....IT IS! My husband ordered it and you know I had to taste it. Boy oh... More

I went here with my wife for breakfast and had their "signature dish" of creamed chipped beef over biscuits. I was a bit letdown considering the reviews described this place as the best place for breakfast in ocean city. It wasnt bad but definitely not worth the hype. My wife had a waffle which she said was pretty good. Overall... More
