This place is so southern and down home. From the tables to the chairs, the waitress, the buffet. Don't go here expecting white table cloths. The breakfast buffet is wonderful. You can order a omelette to your liking. The lunch buffet is also very good. Prices are reasonable and great for a family on vacation. Enjoy. We love it here.

I'm not usually one for buffets, especially breakfast, but this place was excellent. Everything on the breakfast bar was delicious. Highly recommend. Small mom and pop type setting but wait time is short!

We came in for breakfast on our way home from the beach. The restaurant was very clean with a friendly atmosphere. Our waitress Debbie went above and beyond to make sure we had what we wanted and needed. We will be going back the next time we visit gulf shores

Breakfast buffet and omelet bar-yum! Our first visit here and it did not disappoint . You can order from the menu if you don't want the buffet.You have to try the hashbrown casserole! Super friendly workers, as well . Will be back!

They do not have much for those who are allergic to dairy or eggs. The dairy free omelette that made me was dry, but edible. The rest of me guest enjoyed their food.

The staff at Hazel's is super friendly and the buffet is Awesome. With that said, it is very small, crowded, and the temperature is pretty warm, it's a little pricey. The decor is pretty neat, I'd definitely recommend giving them a try while vacationing in Gulf Shores.

Had the breakfast buffet for $9.99 that included the usual bacon, eggs, biscuits, sausage, pancakes, etc.. Oh and an omelet of your choice. Very good food at a good price in a friendly atmosphere. Recommended.

I really love this place. The buffet is really awesome and I love the fact that you can get omelettes and eggs to order along with the bar offerings. I really like the atmosphere here as it is a typical locally owned breakfast joint... love it! All you can eat biscuits and gravy, you cant beat that!!! The coffee is... More

Hazel's Nook is absolutely a nook. If you're not lucky enough to get a booth, it's close quarters. The food on the buffet was good, hot and they kept it full. Quite a nice selection of items, I especially liked the cheese grits. Reasonably priced and friendly staff.
