Food is bar style food with limit imagination from the cook. Burgers are $14 and not good at all. I can't imagine this restaurant ever gaining a repeat customer. Hostess and waiter performed very well.

I went there three times during a five day trip to Kiawah, mostly because it's the only breakfast option nearby. Between what I had and what I tried from my friends' plates, I had several different entrees there. In general, everything was good. The Eggs Benedict and the corned beef hash were both fantastic. The biscuits and gravy were solid.... More

Had wonderful brunch on screened in porch. Our group of five people had a variety of dishes, including the chicken and waffles, grits, fried green tomatoes, omelet, and corned beef hash. Everyone was quite happy with their food. Portions were generous. Prices were reasonable compared to the expensive prices that we found everywhere in the area.

Had the stuffed burger and BBQ chips for appetizer. Appetizer arrived two minutes before meal. Sweet tea not too sweet but good. Service overall good. Server very nice and polite. It's not the jasmine porch but good for what it is. One soon really liked the pancakes for lunch.

Best breakfast on Kiawah outside of the sanctuary. Everything is great on the menu, straight out of the Southern Breakfast cookbook. Portions are huge so we usually eat there for brunch. Locals who have worked there for years serve you and are very hard-working and friendly. I took one star away from a perfect rating because the sevice is usually... More

I ate breakfast here during my stay in May. I ordered something different each morning but had grits both days. They are the best I have ever eaten. I think we all ordered something different each day and were happy with the selections. My daughter ordered the Chicken and Waffles - I tasted the Chicken. Oh My Gosh - it... More

Stopped here as we were leaving my bachelor party. Just looking for a good meal before we hit the road. We were very pleasantly surprised to have had one of the best meals i've ever had. about 4 of us ordered the Chicken and Waffles and those that didn't were very sorry they didn't. I always tell my wife that... More

This is a refreshing change to the typical breakfast joint. Casual, clean and prompt, this restaurant offers authentic southern breakfast items similar to my grandmothers.

Great all-day breakfast menu with a lot of variety. I went out of my comfort zone and ordered chicken & waffles. A nice treat!
