“Outstanding Breakfast Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The food here is outstanding and the atmosphere is even better. The menu has classic "no frills" breakfast items such as pancakes, waffles, eggs benedict, corned beef hash, omelets, and toast. If you're not from North Carolina, this is your opportunity to try Sun Drop or sweet tea! Yum! The service is great and is always fast. While you wait for Dave to SHOUT your name to announce that a table is ready for you, enjoy coffee on the front porch and watch the drawbridge to the island raise/lower. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the country.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

I had flounder sandwich with onion rings. Fish was perfect on sesame bun lettuce tomato. Flounder very fresh and cooked to perfection. Onion rings were just as good. Tasted like fresh made. Maybe they were. Didn't ask.

“"Must hit" breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I’m pretty partial to Wrightsville beach and its gems because I went to UNCW nearby but this is my favorite place to eat breakfast whenever I come back! If you come during a busy time of year or any weekend morning, be prepared to wait unless you get there before 8am. While you’re waiting they offer free coffee, rocking chairs and a partial view of the intercoastal’s boats floating by (especially exciting the kids will be the drawbridge raising which remains my sister’s favorite thing to spot). Their breakfast options are delicious – a few of my favorites are the seafood & shrimp omelets and breakfast combos (eggs, breakfast meat with specialty waffles (my fav is M&M))! Also, don’t forget to bring cash (or you can run down the street to the atm a block away while you are waiting).

“I'd opt for McDonalds next time!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Decided to try after all the positive reviews and was disappointed. We have traveled quite alot and typically enjoy diners for the value and good food. Instead this was cramped, noisy and long wait - 40 minutes on Sat morning @ 9:30 AM, Sept 14th. $30 for 3 adults breakfast is a bit pricey when all you get is bacon/eggs and A biscuit. Definitely not Cracker Barrel and for the money, I'd choose McDonalds next time.

“Always awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

The eggs Neptune and waffles are the best! The standard breakfast of eggs and bacon or omelet is really good too. Can't beat the fast and friendly service.
