Took the family of five adults and three kids for breakfast and was just okay. French Toast had too much cinnamon for the kids, the hashbrown potatoes were undercooked, and the restaurant namesake, eggs benedict, the eggs were overcooked. One redeeming quality was the staff....Best service we have had in Myrtle Beach and in Surfside. You could tell the servers cared about the customers.More

We were greeted and seated within 15 mins during spring break. Servers were nice and made sure everything was ok. Daughter had the red velvet waffle, spouse had the cinnaroll waffle, and I had the coconut banana french toast waffle. Daughter liked the red velvet....It was ok for both my spouse and me. We didn't get much of a flavor from it, but it was cooked properly. Cinnaroll didn't have much of a cinnamon taste. It needed the cinnamon spread they put on the coconut banana one. The coconut banana one was fine, but mushy and not crisp on the outside like you'd expect since it's french toast. The real standout dish was the kids pancakes. It surprised us that a place known for waffles would not have any waffles on their kid's menu. Seriously? How weird. So we got our son the pancakes and they were fluffy and perfectly griddled. We all loved them the best. We went for waffles and loved the pancakes. Go figure.More

Our first visit. Wife order Toasted Bagel with Cream Cheese. The Bagel was burned BLACK on edges and outside top. Waitress said that’s the way it comes out of toaster. I ordered Scrambled Eggs with Sausage Biscuit Gravy. On a scale of 10; sausage gravy...was a 6. Very disappointing visit.More

For this to be a restaurant with Benedict in its name, you would think it would live up to it. It does not. Do not get the Benedict of any kind. The hollandaise sauce has to be some kind of canned sauce and is terrible....The grits were also horrible. I threw away the whole meal. I got my husband two eggs with bacon and he said I might as well have made it myself that were okay but nothing special.More

I expected more from this place but was disappointed. Our waiter Mike M came right to our table and Welcomed us and took our order. He was very attentive to our needs and checked on us several times. You could tell he enjoyed his job....I ordered scrambled eggs, grits and bacon crisp. Well it was crisp but was like real old low grade of meat. Grits were lumpy. Husband got a steam and eggs and it was nothing to brag about. Now like I said our waiter was great to all the tables around us. We were sitting over at the window in front of the kitchen and there was a group of young girls stuck over in the corner all drinking beverages. There was one black headed long hair girl (only one I seen with this description) she continuously stayed on her phone texting. My husband said she can't get nothing done for texting so that's when I noticed it. She then stood there messing with her ponytail and was hugging some other girl. One thing don't mess with your hair and then touch people's food or even someone needs to take their phones. And they wonder why no one wants to work. Won't be back.More
