“Fabulous Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

The food was delicious. The waitstaff was fabulous and the view fantastic! We were lucky enough to have the first table where you can sit, eat breakfast and enjoy the fabulous ocean and beach view!

“had to check it out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

very limited breakfast menu. We sat at the counter since the place only seats about 20 people. It was entertaining watching the workers and their effciency. Food was good but not awesome.

“Just what I was looking for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

If you want some tasty diner food, beachfront, served with southern hospitality, this is your place. Simple but flavorful, served with a smile, and all reasonably priced. Entry is a little tricky because you go in through the back by the pool. It can get crowded because there are few seats. If you're a party of one or two, go for the booth at the front (furthest from the door when you enter). You'll have the best seat in the house.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Food ok, nothing special, not sure what all of the rave is about. Crowded and feel rushed to hurry up and eat.

Thanks for taking the time to review. The pace in the summer can feel rushed when there is a line out the door. We hope you can come back in the fall when it's a little less crowded.

“Good old school food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Good food at fair prices. Ate breakfast and lunch here with no complaints. Best to get there early am to avoid the crowd or after 1 pm to avoid lunch crowd. They close at 2:30 pm - we found that the lunch crowd had dwindled by 2 and could get our food within a 5 minutes of ordering if we waited until then
