We were very happy with the choices we made when we stopped for lunch on a Sunday. It is a casual restaurant with friendly employees who were never too busy to stop and visit with us.

We eat here a couple of times every trip we make to Surf City. Staff are friendly and attentive, owners treat you like an old family friend. Dont go by the bad reviews, they must have had it in their head before theu even visited. EAT HERE, you wont regret it at all!!!!!

We visited Batson's for breakfast on Sept 17 while vacationing in Surf City. The place was clean and had a nice selection of breakfast items. We placed our order and watched every person in the restaurant get their food before us (we just had eggs and pancakes for the 2 adults and 2 kid in our party). The waitress kept... More

The food is just not very good. The service was friendly and fast. Maybe we caught them on a bad day.

We had breakfast here twice and both times it was awesome! Genuine homemade cooking for sure!!! And cat-head biscuits! Food was excellent and service was even better!!! Will be a must go to next time we're in the area!!! You cannot go wrong - the food is worth the moderate price!
