Upside-down pineapple pancake paradise!

Awesome breakfasts - and I don't write that lightly - I eat out alot unfortunately. Pineapple pancake is my wife's favorite - it covers the plate. Sausage gravy and biscuits are killer, omelets are generous, and varieties of pancakes to please all. We'll eat there 3 times in our visit. Almost... read more

We usually look forward to eating here every year for our first morning of our sunset beach vacation . Service was terribly slow & I always order the same thing ,& it's usually pretty consistent . Not so much this time . No topping at all on the pancakes except about 3 blueberries. I asked the waitress & she did... More

My friend and I ate here and thought the breakfast was extra good. Breakfast is usually so so but theirs was above, and the wait staff was busy but good. Parking was crowded and hard to pull out into traffic.

Nice friendly waitstaff, prompt service. Food is plentiful if that's what one likes, but quality is poor. Breakfast potatoes way too oily and not freshly cooked, mushy and no crispy edges about them. Omelet was overdone and dry, interior (spinach, onion, mushrooms and cheese) was again so oily, it was unappetizing and inedible. Biscuits look good, but are doughy on... More

My husband loves their hash and I am a afficionado of their pancakes, especially the pumpkin pancakes. Service is great and quick. Atmosphere homey.

Monthly visit met our very high expectations. The pineapple upside down pancakes are my wife's favorite and the omelette special was very good. It was quieter than usual and service was terrific.

My wife & I stopped at Sunrise for a late breakfast our first morning in Ocean Isle Beach. She had basic omelet with home fries - omelet was very good, home fries (w/onions outstanding!). I had a combo platter - pancakes, eggs, sausage. Everything excellent, including the special touch of warmed syrup. Definitely will be back.
