This place had a commercial look so I wasn't expecting anything big an fancy but I wouldn't even call it IHOP comparable . The food was dry and bland an way over priced I thought maybe it was what...

We had a wonderful breakfast at a low price with great service. What's not to love? The place smells if mildew, really strongly. I know the area is wet, and older buildings are prone to taking on moisture there...but, something has to be done. Smell didn't bother me after about 15 minutes, thankfully!

Elaine, Thank you so much for coming into our restaurant and I'm really glad you enjoyed the food. We apologize for the "mildew" smell, and we are diligently working on it. We just recently updated our ventilation system and then discovered we have a leak under the restaurant that was causing some stagnant water build up. It unfortunately took several... More

The Sunrise Pancake House gives me the feeling of coming home. Every time we visit Myrtle Beach it is one of our "must-dos". The staff and owners always make my family feel as though we are the top priority. They always bend over backwards to accommodate our family which can be difficult with two small children. It is really the... More

What is that smell, burning candles isn't doing anything for that. Stopped Sunday food wasn't bad but now you have some kind of smell. Didn't see many of the local people I'm used to seeing, did get a cushion this time which made the bench a little better. Just can't get used to not having that personal feeling unless we... More

My family and I are from the mountains of Western NC and we have been coming to Sunrise for years when we visit the beach. Our kids have practically grown up coming here and insist on coming back every time. The Crab Benedict with Crab Cakes, Breakfast Burrito and the Pineapple Upsidedown Pancakes are winners for us. The food has... More

We took our family to eat lunch and each of us had our best meal in months! Not to mention the cost was very affordable. The staff was friendly and helpful along with the owner. My kids are usually picky but this restaurant was a WINNER!

Over the years we have eaten at this place and I have never felt it was very clean. The food is okay, but the floors are dusty and the place has always had a dingy feel to it. In late August I relented to my wife's wishes to "reminisce" as we hadn't eaten here in many years. Upon arrival, the... More

When reading your review, we were disheartened as all the staff work really hard to make everyone's experience a positive one. We are happy to compensate for mistakes that are sometimes made, and invite you back for a meal of your choice anytime you like. However, we want to address your statement regarding the cleanliness of our restaurant and kitchen.... More

Gave our name to cashier and was told the wait would be 5 minutes, we waited 15 to be exact. It seemed like it took a while to bus the tables maybe that was the delay. Our drink order was taken within a couple of minutes and they arrived a couple minutes after that. There was a 5 minute delay... More

Thank you for coming into our restaurant and eating with us! We apologize for the food delay, and understand that when hunger strikes, we want our food quickly. Summers and especially weekends are our busiest times of the year and the kitchen can get backed up when we have many customers come in at/around the same time. We hope you... More

I was particularly interested in the seafood omlets - there were two on the menu. When considering the shrimp/crab omlet I was advised that the crab was imitation crab. Couldn't believe thata restaurant in this this city called the 'seafood' capital was serving imitation crab. With that information ordered the Shrimp omlet and thoroughly enjoyed it.

My mom and I enjoyed breakfast after church today at this fun family restaurant. Mom had the eggs Benedict and I enjoyed the special quesadilla . Mine was so generous it will be lunch later today. If you are looking for a delicious breakfast or lunch at a reasonable cost Sunrise is a great choice.
