This place is great for home cooked food. Locals eat there so that tells you something. Normally a line esp. for breakfast.

My boyfriend and I eat here about twice a month and the service is the reason we come. We always get prompt attention, the food is always good and well worth the price. It's a great value.

Typical diner type restaurant; good breakfast can be found here. Everything we had was really good. Only complaint is the price difference for the "sausage gravy". It was good gravy, but there was not really any sausage in it, and it was 1.10 more than regular milk gravy. It's a small place and is busy by 9am; get there earlier... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend. The restaurant is nothing fancy. However, the prices are good and our food was really good. Everything came out exactly as ordered and it was hot. It's a pet peeve of mine to be served cold food. The only downsides are that it took awhile... More

This is an old building with old decor but our breakfast was good, the pancakes were great tasting and large. Not the crummy Bisquick taste! We found the place clean and especially appreciated the syrup, salt and pepper containers not sticky or gummy but well wiped down. Our bacon was crisp, eggs just a bit overdone but good. Our servers... More

Ran in for take out. I got 2 meatloaf meals and it was enough for 3 people and was very good. I have not had the breakfast but understand it is very good too. The wait staff was so nice. I felt like I was in Mayberry.

I can't believe this place was voted for #1 breakfast in the area. It must be the ONLY place open for breakfast. It was truly terrible. The pancakes were gummy and the syrup had not one hint of maple flavor at all. Our eggs came out undercooked with white goo on the underside. My bacon was floppy and dripping with... More

We went for breakfast one morning due to it being the first place open. The waitress was very nice and took good care of us. However, the quality of the food was poor and the cleanliness was nothing to brag about either. The prices are pretty high considering the average-to-small portions. Overall, nothing to brag about.

Had breakfast here during our stay in Southport/Oak Island, based on suggestion of friends who had ate here a week or so before. It WAS busy on the Saturday morning we were there and we did have to wait about 20 minutes, but it was all good. I had a good "ole fashioned" Southern breakfast and it was very good.... More
