Always good

Great choice of meals--particularly breakfast. Generous servings and everything done right. You can tell the owner has a long history in the restaurant business.

Lost our reservation, Sunny side up eggs whites were undercooked...raw. Country ham slice was more fat and bone than edible meat. Crispy home fries were soggy and not much spice to them. Grits were excellent..creamy and buttery...lots of both in dish. Had to wait a long time for average (that is generous rating) plate of food. But...due to high verbal... More

I had 2 eggs, grits that were very creamy, thick cut bacon and toast. They were very quick and everything was delicious.

Went here for breakfast. What a quaint place. Green and purple everywhere. Even my yummy waffles were purple!! Great food and friendly staff. Even the water in the toilet bowl was purple!!! If you are passing through Southport,you must stop and have. A great meal. Prices were good also!

We visited for Sunday brunch on a recommendation. It was awesome!! I got the purple waffle and my husband got a breakfast wrap. They were both very good. The atmosphere is eccentric but it works well. The staff was pretty friendly as well. We will definitely be back!

This is the GOOD STUFF. On weekend lunches people wait an hour (or more) for seating. Go early to middle of the week for the best service and individual attention you will likely receive in the greater Wilmington NC area. Locally owned and operated by the Taylor family for several decades, smiles and handshakes and even hugs are freely handed... More

The fried chicken was great. The place was very crowded at lunch--we had to wait on a seat. The decor is a little much unless you are a die hard Obama fan. However, the food is tasty and if you're not an Obama fan, hopefully you can get a table facing a window!

Fabulous southern cooking! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu! The place is small and sometimes you have to wait, but it is well worth it! The décor is all green and purple; who knew there were so many accessories in those colors?!

Our OKI vacation would not be complete without a trip to Taylors. Southern comfort soul food for breakfast makes me so happy. Sausage and gravy biscuit. Sweet potato pancake or waffle. Bacon like it should be served. I want to go back for lunch and dinner.

I think this is one of the best kept secrets of Southport. They grow their own vegetables right out front... The staff is wonderful and they have an amazing variety of tastes that will keep you coming back for ... and wanting more! We go at least once a week. In the middle of Southport... when it's open it is... More
