Excellent breakfast. Well prepared. Fast and friendly service. Choose to sit at a table in a booth designed for two or a counter stool close to the preparation area.

Decided to eat breakfast on our last day and didn't want to wait very long. BLET breakfast sandwich great. No wait to sit. Service not so great. Owners family obviously was in restaurant and all waiters and waitresses were too busy socializing to bother with us. I had to get my own coffee refills and napkins! They need to remember... More

I frequent Sunrise whenever I visit Tybee. It is a great local spot with a classic diner feel. Weekends feature an all-you-can eat breakfast buffet that is well worth the money. The wait staff is warm, friendly, and family-oriented. My only complaint (and I hope management sees this and fixes it) is that the coffee is dreadful. Just really watered... More

The sign said, "Seat yourself." For the first ten minutes, I thought we would have to serve ourselves also. It's not that the wait staff isn't trying, it's just that there weren't enough to cover the crowd. The grill crew was churning out orders as fast as possible, but we saw only two waitresses, who looked exhausted. To address two... More

The line for the famous Breakfast Club was literally to the beach. Right up the street was this jem. The place was packed and hopping Sunday of Labor Day weekend. But the service was awesome and so was the food. My hubby got his standard scrambled eggs, well cooked bacon and hash browns. I got the Sunrise Signature Hash Brown... More

My husband and I visited Sunrise on our first morning in Tybee. It was right by the hotel so, why not? We were excited about our day and trip, so when the bill came in about $5 higher than I'd mentally calculated, I just shrugged it off. I told myself that maybe I'd mis-calculated and, perhaps, there was a higher... More

Step inside and you will see many locals chatting and reading newspapers while having coffee and breakfast. Good, hearty breakfast food (buffet added on weekends and holidays), and if you're a late riser, you can have breakfast for lunch!

Their food is fresh, and the buffet is a great way to go if you can't decide what to choose from the menu. Your pockets and your belly will thank you!
