First morning on the island, we headed here for breakfast on a recommendation of a friend who grew up nearby. Low key but attentive service. Tasty food from the standards to the southern style favorites. Affordable and pleasant. Nice to walk to the dock after and see the boats. Note: tried to go back for lunch but ac wasn't working...

We ate here for breakfast on our first morning in Hilton Head and were not disappointed. The atmosphere and staff are very pleasant. We sat on the patio early in the morning which was relaxing. The food was excellent. I had eggs while my fiance went for the french toast. The drive to the restaurant and plaza its located in... More

There was a small wait for a Sunday morning... but we didn't mind, there was a bar tender outside. We sat at the bar, ordered French toast and the breakfast burrito. Really interesting seeing the workings of the kitchen. Much better than Waffle House! I would definitely go back.

Breakfast food is my favorite, so always looking for it on trips! Not just a bagel, croissant, or muffin, but real breakfast. This menu had it. Eggs and ham, my husband liked. Nothing fancy but hard to mess up. And the bread used to make the varying toast was awesome. The shrimp hash was mediocre at best(for 13.00?). Most of... More

We ate here based on the great reviews but we were not impressed. The cooks did not wear gloves or hair nets. We saw him many times spread out the hashbrowns with his hands, another touched toast with bare hands, rubbed her nose, then put toast on plate. The resturant was not clean, dust hanging from ceiling vents.we will not... More

Well worth the diversion from I95 on our trip north. Food and service was superb. Breakfast is my favorite meal and I wish I lived close to this place.

Had breakfast. Our order was taken promptly and served promptly. Serve staff was very attentive. Food was typical breakfast fare, but well cooked. Crispy bacon. We sat outside so we got to watch the people coming and going. Entertainment for a toddler.

We visited based on other reviews and we weren't disappointed! It was very busy...we got there around 10:30 for breakfast. We were seated within 10 minutes. The coffee was good and hot, the food was great as well. I got the crab cakes Benedict. Delicious! The pancakes were as big as the plate and very good! Highly recommend!

Waitress recommended the blueberry crème French toast dish... AWESOME is an understatement... Even the shrimp and hash dish was great. We ended up sharing the shrimp and hash as the meal and eating the French toast as dessert.
