“Omega Pancake House in Surfside is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

I cannot say enough for this wonderful restaurant. We were a group of 11 with varying (and challenging) tastes, needs, budgets, and opinions. We were there for breakfast 4 mornings out of 7 and sat in Paula's section every time. She could not have been more professional, hospitable, personable and entertaining. I should mentioned that she delivered every order correctly and in record time, learned everyone's favorites, and delivered the highly recommended "cinammon buns" to our table almost without being asked by the end of the week. Those buns in particular are a must have, but be prepared for the fat and sugar overload :-). Nick, the owner, also visited our table numerous times to chat with us and make sure we felt welcome and satisfied. I met his wife, Anna, the last morning we went there for breakfast. She was just as lovely and welcoming as everyone else. I highly recommend this restaurant...NOT to be confused with another Omega restaurant that is NOT in Surfside. Enjoy!!!

“Nice Breakfast Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We came here twice while staying in Surfside Beach at the end of July. Our first trip was really great. They weren't too packed and the food was awesome. The second trip was the day that we were leaving to head to the airport. We got there around 10:15 am with our group of about 20 people. We knew that we would have to leave to head to the airport for around 11:30 and figured we had plenty of time. We asked the waitress to bring the food out as it was ready since we had children in our party who were pretty hungry. The waitress said ok and finished taking our order. It was about 45 minutes later that we noticed several tables who had been seated after ours were getting their food that we questioned the waitress. We were then told that our order had to be delivered all together and could not be brought out individually when it was ready. This was a contradiction from earlier and, thus, somewhat frustrating. All the food was delivered about 15 minutes later. We ate quickly and headed out to the airport.

The food really was great though. I'd come back in the future but be sure to give more time for our party.

We were staying at a local hotel with horrid restaurant service. Found this local gem at the end of our stay. The kids enjoyed the food. Good service.

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We had a good breakfast here while staying at a local hotel on vacation. Food was good and so was the service. Lots of selection on the menu. Worth a try!

“Great place with Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We are here twice on our family vacation breakfast two days in a row as we stayed at ocean lakes right next door. We had 8 people and both times immediate seating. The servers were so nice and attentive especially with the kids. Everyone got what they ordered no mistakes. Don't let the out dated decor sour you from this place because that is the only issue.
