good quality, homemade food Plenty of seating for customers of all ages. The efficiency of the wait staff was outstanding. Prices are a little high, but the portions are so large you could split. No charge for an extra plate. Great experience, will be back

The breakfast were big and tasty. Wonderful french toast and pancakes. The home fry potatoes have onions and green pepper in them and were delicious. Prepare for a wait on weekends. Weekdays are less crowded.

Extensive Menu. Tried the Eggs Benedict and the Mexican Omlet. Both were delicious. Really enjoyed the home fries. The side order of pancakes was not memorable. We were seated instantly. The initial service was outstanding but fell short with requests (honey) and water refills.

We came here for breakfast on the day we left Surfside Beach. What a great decision! I had the eggs Benedict. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the ham was wonderful! My husband got the breakfast burrito and he loved it. The service was excellent. Our server even offered us coffee and tea to go which we appreciated. Loved it!

We go every year when we visit SC. The breakfast offering is really good, as well as the service. It is very popular with the locals. My waffle was delicious, and the sausage links were not greasy like in many other places.

We love to come here for breakfast, and once again, we were not disappointed. Seated right away, and our orders were taken. Food came quickly. They have a very large menu for breakfast, so if it is your first time coming, take time to read it over. Lots to choose from! Portions are big, so be prepared to take some... More

Golden Egg is frequented for breakfast by a group to which I belong. The staff is always willing to put tables together for us, and to offer more than one server so that we all receive our orders at about the same time.
