Had breakfast here during the big Seaside Cruizers Car Show and these guys kept up the pace. With lots of people in town, this place filled up quickly and no one left hungry. I had the Gary's special which was eggs with all the fixings.

Food was fine, service was sketchy due to the crowd there for lunch. Will pick a different time to attend there if we go back.

Enjoyed a great burger and fries here. We sat at a table with comfy wing chairs, and enjoyed good conversation over a pleasant meal. Service was efficient and non -intrusive.
