Excellent Breakfast!

Be prepared for a short wait. But if it is busy that is always a good sign! We didn't have that long to wait and we were a table of 6. Lots of choice and everyone in our party loved their breakfast here. They could probably fill a place twice as big!

Sea Biscuit is a tried-and-true place for breakfast and lunch. This is a very laid-back, beach café--just what most would like when at the beach. Food is very consistent and always tasty. They incorporate fresh, local seafood--whatever is available. Their non-seafood offerings are very good as well, simple but with an extra-special touch. Cute T-shirts for sale as well!

Rustic atmosphere with excellent food & service. Crab Cakes Benedict is my favorite, but all of their breakfasts are outstanding. A little off the beaten path, but worth the trip.

We went for lunch at Sea Biscuit and loved everything!! The kids were bummed at first because they could not have breakfast (serving for breakfast had passed), but after eating their grilled chicken fingers, they were bummed we did not have time for them to stay and eat more! The panini was fabulous and my chicken salad with vinegarette dressing... More

Sea Biscuit is undoubtably my favorite breakfast place anywhere. Always wonderful specials on the board, generous portions, good prices (no credit cards). It's popular so off times are good unless you don't mind waiting. Bring something to read. Believe me it is worth it. (written up in Southern Living too)

Great spot for breakfast on the island! The biscuits are made from scratch & huge, paired perfectly with butter & jam! The banana bread was served warm, like it had just came from the oven, delicious! Overall, great experience!

We ate breakfast and while it was good, it was far from great; actually pretty average. Also, cash only.?.?

Cute little place with a casual, island feel. Friendly staff, fresh, homemade food. My husband savored his turkey and brie cheese wrap with potato salad, and I enjoyed a Greek chicken salad. Limited gluten-free options. We were lunching there, but the breakfast selections on the menu really looked good. We really enjoyed both the ambiance and the food at Sea... More
