We had an excellent meal at Morning Glory on Father's Day. There were some special additions to the menu that several of us enjoyed. I had a tasty veggie omelette with loads of fresh mushrooms, red pepper, onions and green pepper. It was done to perfection with the addition of a little Swiss cheese for good measure. My brother had... More

Ate here a couple of times. The servers are very nice and helpful if you would like a substitution on the menu. Food was tasty. Sad to say, the bathrooms are not very clean. Someone goes in there and mops the main part of the floor but along the edges it is dirty. Wonder what the kitchen is like.

My wife and I had breakfast here on a Sunday. The place was very busy and we had to wait awhile for our food. But the wait staff was excellent and the food was good.

I recently enjoyed a quiet lunch on the patio of the Morning Glory Café, overlooking the Lieutenant River. I like trying items that are new to me, so I chose the "Vientiane chcken Wrap." The wrap included grilled chicken, a green chile sauce, shredded cabbage, carrots, scallions, mushrooms, a hardboiled egg, peanuts, and cilantro. Very tasty !

The initial appearance of the facility is not impressive. However, the location by the Lieutenant River is outstanding. Very calming to be on the patio while viewing the sights and sounds. The food was served quickly and the quality was high. Help staff was very friendly and efficient. Great place to visit on a pleasant afternoon or summer dinner. I... More

We always get a great meal here. My wife had an omelet special and I had poached eggs and an English muffin. Service is always good.

This respite is right off I-95. We ate outside and enjoyed the marsh view. I had the lobster salad special which was not bad. My husband had the French dip which he said lacked seasoning. They offer Thai tea which was super. Our waitress Nova was excellent.

Seven of us went there for Father's Day brunch after a very disappointing visit to The Grille (separately reviewed). The staff was very accommodating and quickly put tables together for our large group. Service was excellent, as was the food. Prices are very reasonable. I had a tasty "Fisherman's Benedict" with salmon & lobster on a croissant. Yum! Put this... More

The breakfast is great and the view of the river is stunning! The staff is very nice and they are willing to accommodate your needs. Always nice to support a family run local business!
