Excellent food, excellent service, place very clean. Staff very friendly. We eat here regularly because it has a small-town atmosphere and the food is prepared and a familiar Southern style.

We have always visited here for breakfast and we really like that they are consistently good. The wait staff are always on top of things and quick. Its a casual place and its easy to tell locals come there often and they have their regulars so that tells a lot of them. I will be returning when I visit again... More

This is the best place on the whomever island to get breakfast. The line may be looking, but we'll worth the wait.

The prices here are very good; they also have a varied menu. Stand back IHOP! We were a group of five and had breakfast there every morning we were in the area. The wait staff are friendly and the service was great!

Good southern style breakfast. Liver pudding and fried eggs with sausage gravy and biscuits for me, corned beef hash and eggs for my wife and the kids had strawberry waffles and bacon. Every body lives it.

Great place for breakfast! It's popular so if you come after 9:30, you may wait for a table a while, but once you're seated the service is quick and the coffee flows. Nothing fancy, but it's good food to fill you up for a day on the beach!

Hubby and I stopped here for lunch. I had pulled pork special and he had western omelette. The food and sweet tea was good and the service was very friendly.

We had heard good things about this restaurant so decided to try it for breakfast when we arrived on the island. People were lined out the door waiting to be seated. The food was just ok and not worth the wait. The pancakes were good but we were disappointed with the sausage gravy and biscuits. The omelette I had also... More
