Two great breakfasts in the same week. Highly recommend the grits bowls, smooth, filling and flavorful. Friendly service. You can tell why this place is a local favorite.

Driven by hundreds of times thought why not give it a try. Ordered Buffalo chicken sandwich, got a wrap. Needed gluten free vodka, who doesn’t have Tito’s, the reef. Cole slaw had lettuce in it. Received the check, 1 item we never received and other...item we sent back. A lousy drink. The waitress was super nice. Gluten free options not many at all. I wouldn’t say don’t go, but I wouldn’t recommend either.More

Minnybill, I'm so sorry for everything. If you decided to give us another try please ask for any manger on duty. We will make sure to accommodate as much as possible. Titos was on back order and I'm so sorry for the inconvenience.

You know when you find a place that’s great little place to go but you don’t won’t tell anyone about it. Well this that place. It was a family of 9 and we got seated quickly. Granted it was a Monday night. Went that night...specifically for Build your own Burger night. Patty was hand patted out and not some frozen burger. Got mine with bacon, lettuce, fried egg, grilled onions, jalapeños and few other small things. Came with fries and a beer. All of this for 8 bucks. Burger was dead on!! Entire table had burgers and everyone walked stuffed and impressed with the whole meal. This is a must go to place on the beach. They want your business more than once so that’s why they put out great food. Definitely set up for locals and tourists.More

We decided to try this place out since it was right across the street from our condo. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We had a party of 9 and didn’t have to wait very long at all. They have something for everyone, from pulled...pork, meatloaf, burgers, chicken and seafood. We ordered the Lobster fries as an appetizer and everyone loved them. They were so good. In fact, we went back again that week just for more of them. The crab stuffed grouper and lobster mac was amazing also. The staff was friendly and very attentive as well.More
