I have had their lunch and breakfast. The lunch burgers are decent. Breakfast not so much, I wouldn't say it's bad more like standard. I tried the poached eggs dish they were cooked completely through. Other than that just standard all though the waitress was as nice as you can find.

We ate here for lunch today. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait to be seated inside, or we could be seated outside immediately. We chose outside. The waiter came over right away and took our order. 45 minutes later our burgers arrived. The burgers were very good, however, I'm not sure they were worth the wait.... More

Stumbled on to this place when we were shopping. It is tucked away in a gift shop area. The food was tasty and the waiters did a great job on both the days we went. I got to try Mimosas for the first time. We ate inside one morning and outside the next morning. I like outside seating better. There... More

I had the blue cheese and bacon burger, it was homemade and delish!! Emily the waitress was really friendly and helpful, would definately return!! The only negative is the over fried corn dog nuggets, they were a little hard!!

We got there on a busy Saturday morning with a party of 7, so we expected a wait. They told us it would be a 90 min wait. 2 1/2 hours later, our table was finally ready. After another 45 min, we finally got our food and it was mediocre at best. The eggs benedict were the worst I've ever... More

This restaurant is located in Timbuck II and has a small seating area inside and outside so plan ahead! We arrived shortly after 5 and we're seated immediately, there were only two in my party which always helps. The tables are covered with tablecloths and a layer of paper on top of that so children can color and draw right... More

3 of us visited around 8:30 am and there was no wait to be seated. As we were leaving around 9:30 there was a wait. The service was quick, the food was great, I got the western omelette which was perfect. I recommend getting the muffin as your choice of bread, they are huge and fluffy, melts in your mouth!...

We just got to the OBX and stopped to have breakfast before going to our rental house. What a poor choice. NEVER would we recommend this restaurant to even our worst enemy! Besides the 40 minute wait to be seated, we then waited for initial service for 20 minutes. Our waiter took our drink order which came in shifts ($3... More

We stumbled across first light as we were wandering around Timbuktu. We were hot and hungry... We ended up on the deck out front because it was busy inside and we didn't want to wait. There was plenty of shade and the breeze was nice. I ordered the bruschetta burger... Oh my goodness. Best burger I've had in a long... More

We had a group of 8 of all ages with the youngest being 7 and although a little slow - the food was well worth the wait! I had an omelet that was too die for but the pancakes, biscuits, eggs, bacon and such were delicious also. Everyone was happy and full when we left!
