Tiny restaurant on the property of the Belvedere Motel on the northern end of the beach. VERY friendly staff, food as expected for a diner. (average). This place fills up quickly as it doesn't seat many. Prices are reasonable. I'd stop in again.

Had breakfast here this morning. Very friendly staff, and good, basic breakfast food served up fast. I had the best seat in the house--at the counter and by the door, so I could watch folks come in and see my food being made.

Welcome back and thank you for sharing the fun. That's my favorite seat as well and the best place to watch our crew do their thing. It's breakfast/lunch and a show! More

It was the only restaurant open at 7 AM on Saturday morning, which was the only positive thing about it. We wanted to try something local for breakfast. The food selection was very small, and the restaurant is badly in need of refurbishing.

We can't expect to please everyone, but we do appreciate that you gave us a try. For those who do appreciate what we have to offer, here are the facts. Although this is our 47th season at The Belvedere, everything was refurbished three years ago with new booths, counter stools, carpeting, paint, refrigeration, and a new POS system. The food...

The size of this establishment should not fool you. From outside the place looks bigger tan what it really is. I believe it serves mostly breakfast, but we went there for lunch..The hamburgers were to die for. It is small but nice..do you remember the TV show ALICE?. Even smaller than that

I was really looking forward to coming here based on the reviews. I must say I was not impressed. Very expensive and not worth the money. Friendly staff. Maybe it was an off day.

I'm glad you found the staff friendly. Next time, try the Eye Opener. It's reasonably priced and guaranteed to put a smile on your face instead of a "Meh". More

Went for lunch, got pancakes and hashbrowns. Wife got a breakfast sandwich and toast. Total was about $15. The place is tiny but we were able to sit right away, staff was very friendly and food great.

Eggs were good. Hash browns were so over cooked they just crumbled. It is a small place...very crowded....the table was pushed up against my belly to make room for the gentleman behind me. I would find another place to eat.

We just enjoyed an amazing breakfast. Cindy was an awesome server, and the boy behind the counter that was wearing a cubs hat can be forgiven. Lol. But highly recommend this place for its reasonable price and great food.
