After a 3 day golfing trip, we headed home and decided to have a real breakfast before the long drive home. The buffet was plentiful and the food was great. A great place for breakfast and excellent service.

It is extremely difficult to find restaurants that serve breakfast in Gulf Shores. We went to Hazel's which has been around for a very long time. The breakfast buffet had quite a few choices and was average price. The server we had has either been at her job too long or was just an unfriendly person. She was very gruff... More

We ate here with our family, 5 kids. Waitresses were very kind and we got there about an hour before the buffet ended, and the food was still fresh. They were still putting out hot food and their biscuits and strawberry cobbler were amazing. The sausage gravy was delicious as well. You should definitely try it. It cost $96 for... More

For starters this place is different from the Hazels in Orange Beach. They have a good lunch buffet if you are looking for close to 'home cooking'. Today when we went they had mac & cheese, green beans, cornbread, fried fish and chicken, baked pork chops, pinto beans and rice, small salad bar and deserts. Good price and super friendly... More

Hazel's Nook is close to the Beach so often selected by visitors. I am a local and visit a couple of times a month. During the season and I believe on weekends they set-up an omelet station. The Omelets are well prepared. However, the buffet is Oh Hum and expensive. The scrambled eggs appear to be powered, tatter tots, two... More

Don't confuse this place with the hazels in orange beach. This place is the absolute best breakfast place here. Friendly staff, very attentive. Love coming here, feels like home! TRY the BENIVELLE OMELET! You won't be disappointed!

We ate breakfast here for the second time. Eating here reminds me of how my mother used to breakfast. The breakfast is great and at reasonable prices.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced breakfast/lunch with no frills but very tasty this your place. They have a brunch buffet that is served at 11am Saturday. It has everything from fried chicken/catfish to pancakes and bacon. Their brown beans and green beans are just like my grandmother used to make years ago. We tried various restaurants during our...
