Delicious food

Our large party received excellent service and the food was delicious! It was a quieter restaurant, perfect for our group to hear conversations.

Novak's boasts of being the best breakfast on the planet. Somewhat of a tall order to live up to! I can say it was not the best on the planet. Coffee was weak and tasteless. My food was tepid at best. The biscuits seemed stale. If I was alone and did not want to offend my hosts who I was... More

Very nice breakfast. The patio area was well maintained with giant clumps of flowers lining the fence. Service was friendly. Would be a regular customer if I lived closer.

Bottom line is, I found a piece of plastic in my sandwich. Albeit I was nearly finished but when it was pointed out to the waitress, I received a mumbled half baked sorry. Health and safety came to mind, not very hygienic.

This is our second trip to this area and decided to eat at Novaks for lunch the last day of our visit. I wish we had gone there sooner. The food was great and the price very reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

Friendly service. Fluffy pancakes. Hash browns were crispy the way I like them. All three of us had different items for breakfast and meals were good! Plenty of food. Took leftovers home.

Had an omelet with my chosen ingredients and it was delicious and very large. Hash browns were very tasty as well. I found the service to be good and prices what I would expect in a resort area. Nice walk across the street from the Abby. We went in the off season but I'm sure in season it is extremely... More

Stopped here this morning 10/25/14 for breakfast. I ordered 2 eggs with sausage. The sausage was raw and tasted like it was spoiled. When I told the waitress she proceeded to order me another order? What would be the point of that? The sausage tasted spoiled. When I told her I didn't want the second order of sausage she brought... More

Conveniently located across from the Abbey Resort. The food was very good, the prices fair, but the service was really slow. The waitress seemed friendly but not really with it
