Along this stretch of 13 there aren't many options for diner food. So if that is what you crave this is your only option along this road. You can do much better food wise by driving a couple of miles into Onancock (west of 13). This is a convenient place and must account for its #1 rating because the food... More

The dinner had a busy parking lot so we stopped. My husband had a weird prime rib that had been broiled after it was cooked. Edible but not worth repeating. I had the crabmeat melt that had a really string fish smell. The restroom had a very sticky floor. Not a good sign.

This is a popular local dining place and serves a great breakfast. They have a great breakfast special and place is always crowded for lunch and dinner also. Service is good and friendly. If you are in the area, stop in and try it.

I ate breakfast here two days in a row while staying at the Best Western next door. Both meals were served promptly and were fresh and hot. Nice portion sizes and attentive service. Atmosphere was slightly dated, but very clean and well-kept. Would definitely recommend this as a great breakfast option in this area.

We stopped here for lunch several times on our way to and from VA Beach. It's a nice place. Larger inside than it looks from the road. Very friendly staff, but at times the service is a little slow. The food portions are large for the price and everything has always been very good. We always take left overs home.... More

The menu is eclectic to say the least. It has everything from breakfast to clams to salads. I wanted the deep fried chicken but was told it would take at least 30 minutes. I felt that was an unusually long time for a 2 piece dinner. The food is okay and the service was good. There will be something for... More

We stopped here on a Sunday morning and were pleasantly surprised. It is unpretentious but everything is clean and the staff extremely friendly (true Southern Hospitality). We were seated immediately and our waitress brought us a great cup of coffee. Our breakfast came quickly and the eggs over easy were perfect as well as the omelet. The ham and home... More
