We ate both dinner and breakfast but my favorite was breakfast! My boyfriend enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits at dinner. I loved the whole grain pancakes and cheese omelette at breakfast. We did not make reservations but was quickly sat and the service was good.More

We had dinner one night there and lunch the next day. Friendly and prompt service. Clean, good food with many choices. The salad bar is a bit small, but they do have one! We will return when we go back this summer.
