Husband and I went one morning and had nice seat at the edge of patio. The waitress was prompt and attentive. If you order anything from Gilchrist, get the blueberry pancakes. WOW! They were so good we came back on our last day of vacation.

Stopped in for breakfast after having someone suggest it. We were not disappointed. Pancakes were good, same with side of sausage. Small place with inside and outside seating. Outside overlooks the harbor area. Will definitely stop in again.

Breakfast on the boat harbor. Small local restaurant with great views. Good menu for breakfast and lunch. Nice little area to get away from the AC hustle

This restaurant is an Atlantic City Tradition. The service is excellent. The breakfast and lunch choices are varied enough to please everyone, from meat, to vegan lovers. The seating puts you together with lots of friendly locals. Try it! You'll love it

I had lunch here and we were on the deck over the water. Restaurant was clean and the food was good. Friendly staff and the price was perfect. Lunch for two was about $25 including the tip.
