BEST BREAKFAST SCRAMBLE/MASH-UP EVER!! A lot of places try this but this is by... More

What a great place to hang out in the California sunshine with a schooner of beer and a plate of food. Be sure to wear your sunscreen! This is an on-the-water dining experience you cannot miss. You will not be disappointed.

I have seen this place so many times on TV that I have been dying to go. Wow. I was NOT disappointed! We live in San Diego and my parents live in Camarillo so this was the perfect "spot in the middle" for us to meet up and have a LOVELY Saturday breakfast together. Everything was got was just sooooo... More

Get here early on the weekends or prepare for a wait. It's a popular spot near the marina. It's a great local spot for breakfast given the nice outdoor environment and good food!

I have to say, we enjoy coming here on Sunday's; for the ambiance of sitting outside, looking at the Marina and relaxing with our mimosas. We know wait is going to be over an hour to sit outside, but we look toward to chatting, sipping, and hopefully get our fav spot: the lifeguard chairs! When we went this past weekend... More

Have to admit I visited this restaurant about a year and a half ago, not impressed. Had Crab Louie, that was not what I expected. I have not been back since until today. A friend of mine urged me to join her for breakfast. And the second time changed my mind. I had half order of biscuits and gravy, was... More

Had the Mess - Half size feeds two people - Best flavors I have had. We also had the Waffle with fruit - It is worth every indulgent bite.

Great food, but long wait. Fortunately, walking in the marina is a good way to kill some time waiting for a table. Outdoor seating has a great view. Keep shade in mind when getting your table.

Delighted that my sister suggested this place for our Sunday breakfast. Upon arrival, we were told the wait would be 2 hours. My sister had already warned me about the wait, so before we sat out in the courtyard, we ordered a bottle of champagne on ice and some orange juice. She said, "This is part of the overall experience."... More

Omelettes, "the mess" and French toast were awesome. The views of the harbor can't be beat. The service was good and and prices were fair. Would definitely eat here again.
