We typically have breakfast in our room on vacation but will eat out on our way out of town. Sunrise Pancake House was quite worthy of our one breakfast out. Pancakes were definitely not "out of a box" batter.

Of all the pancake houses along the stretch from Ocean Isle Beach to Myrtle Beach, this has always been our favorite. They have much more than just pancakes. Don't forget to try some of the specialty pancakes. Our favorite is the pineapple upside down pancakes.

We got there just before it got busy and were seated right away. Everything we had was great - pancakes, waffles, grits, eggs, sausage. We were so full when we left. Definitely a must-visit place for breakfast while at the beach!

Sunrise is a main stay in Calabash and very busy in the early morning for Breakfast. Breakfast is offered in a large number of choices, all providing a stable beginning of the day. Hardy food in 'man-size' portions.

Stopped in for a 2nd time in the past 5 years for breakfast before we left the beach. Quick, delicious, personalized service, and fair price. If you're in the area for golf and wanna fuel up before your round, or as we were this time...filling up before a long trip, this is a good choice. Lots of variety on the... More

Our party of eight made three total visits to this restaurant over the course of a week. We had lunch twice (with a few breakfast items in our order) and breakfast once. Each time, the food was fresh and well made- it came exactly as we ordered it. We tried everything from the shrimp salad, chipped beef, crab and shrimp... More
