“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We have had breakfast here three times. What the Wave lacks in ambiance it makes up for with a large well cooked breakfast. Hash browns or home fries. Your choice.

“French Toast was undercooked”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Though this family business is poppin'. I feel like they could renovate just a little since it is a little bit run down.

on the food part, I ordered the French Toast and it was undercooked, which was really weird. The toast tasted like batter and that was what was in the toast, uncooked batter.

Great food! Great service! Casual atmosphere! Loved everything about my day at the beach, including lunch at this little place!!! Eat the homemade pickle that comes with your meal...it's delicious!

“Love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

I come here fairly regularly. Location is central to everything, and the food is great! Priced well for a "diner", portions are huge, service has always been excellent. The place is definitely casual, you don't have to worry about coming here after getting sandy at the beach. Our dog has always been welcome to sit at the outdoor tables with us as well. Love this place!
