Cristy's is a throw back luncheonette - actually from 1957 and not much has changed. For breakfast, go early, especially on weekends - during the summer the lines will be out the door. The food is great and the portions are huge, honest.. I ordered 2 eggs scrambled with corn beef hash. The eggs must have come from an elephant,... More

We were staying down the road at Water's Edge and did not want to eat at the resort's restaurant on checkout day. We decided to look for somewhere to have a leisurely breakfast.

I had read great reviews of this restaurant which is why we came here for breakfast after spending the night down the road. We knew by the packed parking lot and line to be seated that it was going to be worth the wait (maybe 10 minutes) & it was! What I read about the best corn beef hash is... More

Good food but you can't be in a hurry! Waitresses seem over whelmed or they don't care about customer service?!?!
