The service here was great. The prices are hard to beat. We sat inside because there was a wait for an outside table on the water. The atmospere is great here inside or out. Coffee was very good and my granddaughter gave the pancakes 2 thumbs up. I liked them as well. I had the crab omelet which was very good. My only complaint would be the breakfast potatoes. They were just plain old barely warm potatoes. Very little flavor.

I think breakfast might be easier to pull off, especially given the dismal food scene in AC. In any other city, an average place with ok food and ok service would be a middle of the road, hundred something rank, not a top 10 restaurant. $25 for lunch for 2 people, drinking water, I don’t see what the fuss is other than that it’s one of the few places that isn’t a god awful chain near the boardwalk. But lower your expectations before you come, and you’ll find an ok meal.

It's a sublime experience sitting on the outside deck with a backdrop of the fishing boats with crab pots, the tour boats and a harbor with a fair amount of traffic and then across the channel are an assortment of hotels and villas. It does'nt get much better than this.

Sit outdoors and pverlook crab pots, tour boats and the Borgata casino hotel across the bay. Friendly, old school spot for breakfast and lunch. Blueberry pancakes a must!
