Excellent food, friendly locals provide great service. Great place for a late breakfast, but expect a short wait. Don't be afreaid to eat at the counter it's fun to watch the speed of the staff!

My wife and I stopped here on the suggestion of a friend (it was our first time in the Cape Cod area). Very good choice for breakfast. The place was packed, yet we seated quickly and the service was very good. Lots of good food.

We have visited Grumpy's on several occasions, and it is always the same. You are seated speedily and fed speedily. The breakfast food is well-cooked and plentiful--in fact, so plentiful that neither of my companions could finish her pancakes. Next time, they may well share a plate. Special praise should go to our elderly waitress who moved so swiftly and... More

Had a good lunch, we both had the kale soup, which was very good. My wife had what she said was a delicious mac and cheese, I had the meatloaf, which was just ok, not bad, not great.

My wife and I were in Dennis and stopped in for breakfast and boy were we impressed. We have friends who have come here for years and love it. Now we love it as well. We both had the breakfast burrito which was very well done and very filling. I had to hashbrowns and she had the home fries. The... More

Breakfast here is a treat indeed. They make their own muffins, lots of varieties and they are huge and yummy. You have to try their corn meal pancakes, they are delish. Their sausages were huge and excellent, They even have fish cakes with beans, for breakfast if one wants to go back in time. They have a huge menu and... More

We picked this place based on reviews which seemed to reflect locals liked it. It was a short drive from our hotel in Dennis Port, and we drove right by it the first time. It was next to a hardware store of sorts, with snow blowers outside! Tucked in there, parking was tight. Anyway the food was great for breakfast,... More

This is the "go - to" restaurant for breakfast in the general mid cape area. The menu is extensive and they will customize just about any breakfast combination that you can think of! The grandkids could not decide whether to have blueberry or chocolate chip pancakes....so they had those two ingredients in one pancake. Not my taste, but they thought... More

They really are! Grumpys is always worth the trip. If there is a big line (which there often is) and time is critical order takeout and take it somewhere. Omelets are great also.

Stopped in for breakfast. There is a reason this place is always rated tops. Plenty of breakfast menu items. This place is always nice and clean. My wife had the linguica omelet and said it was terrific. I had eggs, bacon, sausage and hash brown. Excellent! Coffee was very good and refilled more than I needed. Many of the staff... More
