Thought we would give it a try since it was our first time staying at The Crusader. Service was fast, not rushed at all. Food was hot and very good. If you want to grab a quick meal so you can get out and do things and not spend your morning waiting to get service then you need to give... read more

The breakfast is always very good and the coffee is the best ! (Irish coffee) The staff are very friendly and fast . A lot of the hotels and motels in the Crest have coffee shops but this one we found to be the best !

One of my families favorite beach spots for breakfast. The service is always friendly and the food is good. At times you have to wait for a table but they move people very quickly.

We stopped in for a bite after arriving for vacation. What a way to start the week. I wasnt expecting much but we received two great hoagies. Chicken cheese steak and an Italian. Both were above average and very reasonable on the price. Stopped by one afternoon for a coffee to go and the waitress insisted on making a fresh... More

We stayed at the Fleur de Lis (next door to the Crusader) and had tried the Doo Wop for morning coffee twice before switching to the Crusader. Crusader was MUCH better. Coffee was perfect (not to weak not to strong) and the breakfast sandwiches were excellent. Price was reasonable and walk up window was a plus for us since we... More

We were guests at The Crusader, so the Crusader Coffee Shop was super-convenient for breakfasts and lunches. Our servers were always friendly to the adults and the children. The food is typical diner food, but there were no complaints from anyone in our party. I had the short stack of pancakes most mornings. They were always delicious. The fried egg... More

I just had a delicious crab cake that was very fresh and served with crisp salad. Food was great, service was great! It is a great atmosphere on the water. I highly recommend it.
