Food is very filling and tasty-but the Bloody Marys are the best anywhere! I had a Taco Salad and it was HUGE and very filling. The waitstaff is also very friendly and prompt.

The only complaint was that the first night the service was great, but the second night we got a different waiter and the service was so-so. The waiter from the first night was there the second night... More

We had lunch at Seabiscuit Cafe and had a really good meal. We had lunch at 2:00 PM and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The derby burger and chicken gyro were excellent. All 6 of us were happy with our meals. That's saying something!

Interesting decor that would have been more inviting the front door was closed as it was chilly and breezy at our table, the hostess was lovely and we did not wait long for a table.

There are not that many places to have breakfast on the island but we would find another place for breakfast the next time we go. I had biscuits and gravy. The gravy wasn't bad but the biscuits were tough. My husband had a "skillet" and everything was just a blob all melted together and very greasy. He described it as... More

We went for a late breakfast and the food and service was so good we went back for an afternoon snack and 'adult beverage'. The owner greeted us at the door.
