Waitress at another restaurant recommended this one, usually a good sign. Had to sit outside partially in the sun. Based on location of the table we thought as the sun rose it would get more shade, but it got sunnier. Oh well, it was the only table, so I won't complain about that. 2 of us ordered eggs and two...

It was highly rated but the food and service was average...thought it was overrated. They brought 2 of our dishes and then a while later brought one more and we kept waiting for the last one...not good...had to ask for basic items for the food ordered. They need an extra fan put in place of one of the ceiling recessed... More

Nice they have added bloody mary's and mimosas to their brunch menu, which adds to the vacation atmosphere. Fast, fun and good eats. The dog friendly policy that so many restaurants have adopted is great for people who just cannot leave their dogs home while they dine, but there should be a designated seating area for those with dogs.

Had breakfast "out" for the first time in all of the 10 years I've been bringing my family to HHI. With a fantastic adult beverage menu (BLT Bloody Mary and a LARGE mimosa) and a full range of sweet to savory meal options, everyone was happy! This is a busy place and the hostess got us seated right away, then... More

Maybe it's because we ate there for lunch instead of breakfast, but our food was just good. It wasn't great. The service was fine. The decor was not really my taste. They have a giant mermaid hanging from the ceiling with humongous bare breasts, which is a little weird, in my opinion.

The advertisement looked like it should have white table cloths and linen. Instead we got bare tables and breakfast with two dogs. Interesting. Food was OK - not superb. The place was of course pet friendly, but having someone else's dog sniffing under my table was not pleasant.

We came here for a late breakfast. Got seated pretty early even though the place was crowded. Service was excellent. Really friendly and attentive staff. Food portions are huge. Highly recommend the special French toast and the quiche.

We went here for brunch while on vacation. We sat outdoors, so it was a little warm. The service was a little slow because they were super busy-but not terrible. And the food was great! The hash browns especially were awesome!

Went on a Tuesday morning. No wait, super friendly service and delicious food! I highly recommend this place! Every server in the place takes care of you, so you are waited in expertly with so much attention to make sure your breakfast is perfect. Everyone should go here for breakfast!
