Good eats

Great value for your money. Breakfast is always very good. Seafood is excellent. Weekends are very crowded - get there early!

On our ride around town for breakfast, we saw a parking lot full of cars at Batson's and decided to give it a try. There did not seem to be that many people in the restaurant, so getting a table was no problem. But from that point on, the wait was on, and on, and on. We ordered simple breakfasts,... More

We were greeted as soon as we walked in. The food was great, our server was cheerful and checked back on us often. The prices were good. It is family friendly. We went back a couple of times.

Trip advisor is usually pretty accurate, with the exception of the obvious really picky reviewers that we try to weed out. This is the second time in one trip that we were really let down by trip advisor. We wanted seafood and everywhere we tried to go had over an hour wait. So we were excited they had no wait... More

The restaurant is decorated well in bright colors, and they have TVs for you to watch if you want. There was only one family there when we arrived for supper, but by the time we left it was filling up fast. I tried the soft shell crab sandwich. It was the first one I've ever had. My young son got... More

I have to admit I was disappointed overall. The quality of food was not equal to the price. There were several flies in the restaurant, buzzing around and on us as we ate. The food was just okay. There were mostly older couples eating here, maybe there is a loyal local following here. It was busy and hard to find... More

I've passed by here for years, but never had a reason to stop. I overnighted on the island and we came here for breakfast. We both ordered omelets and were not disappointed. Not very crowded and our service was excellent.

My family and I got kind of a late start on a Sunday and wanted breakfast. We went to Batsons, we got there and asked if they were still serving breakfast. They said they had cut it off already; but, decided to stay. While we were looking at the menu all of the tables around us had breakfast served to... More

Ate here on our first night on the spur of the moment and ended up coming back two more times during the week. The daily specials were amazing and clearly freshly caught and prepared. Hush puppies on the table to start with, reasonable prices and a great family atmosphere. The service was fast and friendly. There is something on the... More
