Been there a number of times and the service is always and the food is consistently very good. Today I had their special turkey club sandwich. One of the best club sandwiches I've had. Just enough mayo, extra crispy bacon and excellent turkey and tomatoes. Their menu is very wide choices for lunch and breakfast. They also serve dinner but... More

Stopped by for lunch while at beach. I saw the sign for 2014 Tripadvisor service award. We ordered burger (a little under done for what was requested) and it was good but a little greasy. Ordered breaded fried green tomatoes. Been a long time since I'd had them so hard to compare but didn't offer much flavor. Salad dressing ("Mom's")... More

Boyfriend, me and his shipmate went the other day and both tickets were not cheap. Food was average. It was raining; hot and stuffy in there. The place itself is cute. Our server was "new" but she was clearly over her head with three tables. Didn't know the menu at all. 6$ Mimosas are straight champagne even though I got... More

The restaurant is causal and appealing. Small but comfortable. The service has always been friendly and prompt. The menu had a large selection of breakfast items various egg dishes as well as pancakes and french toast. Lunch has a wide variety of sandwiches, soups, salad and specials. Highly recommend for a causal or family outing.

Best crab cake sandwich I've ever had! Their fries are excellent, too; like McDonald's, only higher quality. They have a pretty varied menu, especially for one that isn't huge, and their desserts looked wonderful. There is a lot of seafood, but there are options who prefer turf over surf, and options for vegetarians, as well. Staff is extremely friendly, attentive,... More

Cost us $30 for 2 sandwiches and 2 cokes. I asked for no ham on my club sandwich, and you guessed it - it had ham on it. The waitress said she could get the cook to take the ham off, but I could do that myself. Was not impressed. Menu was just average.

We were in the area and decided to try a local place we had not been before. Ordered the fried green tomatoes to start, and did not care for them. There was to much batter and they were served with what appeared to be 1000 island dressing. Have had much better. The Greek salad and Gyro were both good. The... More

Not a very large restaurant but wonderful food and great service! We had an amazing bloody mary and the gyro's were amazing with homemade tzatziki sauce.

Went their twice. Once for breakfast and once for lunch. Meals are way overpriced and the service was lousy. I guess if you can drink in the morning this would be your place to go. Our food would be considered a kids meal at one of those chains everyone eats at. How this is rated so high is a mystery... More
