good service, very good breakfast

Ate here recently for the second time at breakfast. The service was excellent and friendly. The food was good basic breakfast food: eggs, bacon, grits. Nothing fancy. Note this is a cash-only joint.

This has been a breakfast staple for my family and I since I was a little kid. The view of the gorgeous marina and Winner Queen help you get settled into that "beach" state of mind. Best western omelet I've ever had. I recommend going for breakfast rather than lunch (as we've not had the same great food during those... More

This is THE place for breakfast in Carolina Beach. Food is tasty and they make what they know. And the price for as much as you get, well, look at the picture and decide for yourself what level of bargain it is.

My family of three was greeted with a smile and seated at a clean booth. Server was extremely friendly and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. Great blend of families, couples and singles eating. We went for breakfast and the sausage & cheese omelette was delicious. It was a huge portion for the price and they didn't skimp on flavor.... More

The food was okay, but there were several dead flies in the window beside our booth, there was one live fly around our table while we were trying to eat, and even one tiny flying bug crawling inside my tea glass. Additionally, the first staff member we encountered was not friendly at all. Out waitress was very friendly, but she... More

The food was good but I have to say our service was Horrible. I don't just blame the waitress, I blame management. It looked like there was one waitress for all the customers in there. We had two tables that came in behind us have their order taken and received food before we did and the table in front of... More

My husband and I waited 45 minutes for a cold and over cooked breakfast. The cold over medium egg turned my stomach and we left. Our waitress never noticed, asked or even acted like she cared. Two tables who came in way after us in our section of the restaurant were served before we were. Skip this place and go... More
