“nice people, gay crowd, cheap food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

bland, overcooked, ordinary diner food. ok for breakfast. .but even that lowly meal is just average.
not sure why so many give this place a thumbs up.... it is cheap enough.... and gets the gay crowd. very friendly, locals kind of place. used to enjoy going for breakfast and sitting outside in the patio out back, but now opt for breakfast at the original pancake house or egg and i.

“Yes....another good meal! It's true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Wednesday morning about 9:30am 2/5/2014 was a good day that got even better when my best friend and I decided to go to breakfast again at Courtyard. As is normal we were greeted by Rudy and Phill and had the best service ( Happy Birthday Rudy ) . Our meals were served fast and hot, and they were busy too. This is such a fun place to visit. I wish I could go every day! Thanks again guys for the great service and food! We shall see you soon.
Floyd and Damian!

“friendly, decent food, fun and reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

they work hard to keep up with the large crowds (more tables in the back) and generally succeed - food is reliably good (if not really outstanding) but it is just such a nice, cosy spot to have breakfast, lunch or dinner

“"Straight Friendly" Dining Experience in Wilton Manors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

What a fun place to eat! They serve a great breakfast complete with tater tots, a great variety of eggs benedict, and my favorite - the MESS (scrambled eggs, three different meats, onion, pepper)! The servers are extremely outgoing and friendly. Ask for Rudy! He is absolutely an off the chart server - always a smile, attentive, and concerned about your dining experience. This is definitely a "family" oriented restaurant but as the sign says, "We are straight friendly!" Love it! If you are visiting Wilton Manors, this is a "must" place to go for either breakfast or lunch. Enjoy!

“Yet another good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Each and everytime we have been here the food has been great. Most times have been for breakfast. Food is fresh, fast and most important HOT! Rudy and Phil could not be better in making sure you are taken care of. I can't speak enough about how this makes one feel. Is it a 5 star location? No. But it is clean, fast and as I mentioned good. I still have the meat lovers breakfast which has always been a joy to eat. Nice expierence for sure. Go and see for yourself!! Good food for a very good price!
