We read great reviews of this place, so we decided to try it out for brunch. We arrived about 11:30 on a Monday and weren't seated until about 12:45...the woman at the desk lost our name on her list! I'm glad we went up to ask after about an hour, or else we'd still be sitting there. As soon as the problem was brought to the hostess' attention she put us in a great table overlooking the water.
We saw our server once, when she took our order - never brought the coffee I ordered. When the food came, I was not disappointed. The reviews were right - the pancakes are amazing. They were worth the hour long wait! The rest of the food (I had one of their combos with eggs, bacon and home fries) was okay, not unlike any diner food.
For the pancakes alone, this place gets 4 stars....if I could give it a separate rating for service, I'd give it 1 star, if that!
