Overpriced for the "buffet" that consisted of scrambled eggs, greasy bacon, sausage patties, undercooked potatoes and some pancakes that had so much cinnamon in them it felt like I was eating the beach and tastes worse. No amount of syrup or butter could save these. These were terrible and at $9.99 for an adult it was no... More

We ate breakfast here because our hotel parking pass had their name on the backside advertising their breakfast. Since it is right next to the hotel and we were starving we thought we would give it a try.

I was hesitant to go back because of my experience last year, for a lack of options we decided to go. Much to my surprise service was fast, pleasant and a great experience. The food was really good!

Food was expensive for what it is but really good. Good service. Nice view from the outdoor patio. Pleasant breeze and the heat wasn't noticeable at all. I'm gluten sensitive which is rough since everywhere around here fries everything. But I had fish tacos with a side salad. Ditched the tortillas and made a fish salad. It was great.

Convenient location. Food is ok- not fresh, home cooked meals- prepackaged. Reasonable prices. Staff is friendly. Clean. Beautiful deck overlooking the ocean.

Thank Holly W
