We really enjoy having breakfast here. The place is full of friendly locals and the servers are always friendly and have no problem taking a special order from you. I wasn't as impressed with their dinners but it's our first choice for breakfast.

I haven't eaten there in a while, even though my son worked there, because everything is out of a box or can and always comes to the table cold! I did go some since he worked there just to try and show support. There are big mouth employees there, as is everywhere, and don't you dare talk to them about... More

We've been vacationing in topsail for over 20 years and always hit Batsons on our way home and sometimes through the week. We usually just do breakfast there but have also had dinner a few times. Never have we had a bad meal nor bad service. It's nothing fancy just good food , great service and always clean. The waitresses... More

I have had at least one breakfast at Batson's every visit to Topsail Beach for my last five visits. They serve simple, tasty, hot breakfast meals along side a cup of piping hot coffee. The breakfast crowd is heavy. Waiting for a table is a common occurrence. This Sunday, our party had folks who ordered: fried eggs, pancakes, an omelette... More

We went for breakfast on that dreaded last day of vacation. I had track Batsons down on Trip Advisor. They were short of help in the kitchen and so food was slow. However, the server was great and the food, once it arrived was worth the wait. My omelet was like home cooking. Gotta believe the speed of cooking problem... More

Recommended to us by a local. Overpriced and dirty. Found hair in my cheeseburger. Would not suggest to anyone

When asked how prepare broiled vs fried, not much difference just spinkle little ole bay on it then microwave, everything either fried or microwaved (per cook). Mashed potatoes were instant, still had flakes in it. This meal which ended... More

We have been to Batson's twice before and enjoyed it. This was different. The flounder was tough, the scallops had some sort of shell in it and my wife's crab cakes were from the frozen food section of a grocery store. I hope they can improve. Maybe we will give them another try.....I have heard they have a good breakfast.

Opens at 6:30 am, if you're trying to get an early start to your day. Great vegetable omelette and coffee. My son had delicious chocolate chip pancakes and they managed to have crisp buttery edges which is almost impossible to find. Our waitress "expressed" our order in because we were really hungry and served us with warmth and charm. Affordable... More
