“Simply Great!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Since my first visit they have yet disappointed in any category. The food is nothing short of exceptional and the service has always been top notch. I recommend you try the Chicken and Waffles its amazing!! Ask for Morgan or Kaley they are the best!!

“Local institution”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Eat a ton, and burn it off at the beach. A vicious cycle. ;) But seriously, they serve all the classic gut busting southern style breakfast fare so shame on you if you can't find anything you like. Their coffee is a little weak so they could stand to stiffen it up a bit. But all in all, you get a lot for the money so it is an outstanding value.

“Fun Menu, Large Portions”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Went for lunch on a recommendation from a Jax local. Breakfast menu was extensive and included many brunch-type items. Lunch menu also had a nice selection with some fun combos you don't normally see. Portions were quite large and the food quality was very good...a great diner.

“Amazing breakfast”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great for brunch! Very busy but my longest wait was 30 minutes...and worth it. I usually get a different version of Eggs Benedict.

“Great Variety, Delicious Food”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

One of the most popular restaurants in Jacksonville Beach, this place is packed on Sundays after church. After waiting about 20 minutes, which wasn't bad considering the amount of people ahead of us, we were seated. The wait staff was friendly and attentive considering the amount of business they were doing.

The menu boasts a wide range of different and interesting foods. I had the shrimp and grits (forget the actual name), and it was fantastic. My wife had the eggs benedict and was equally impressed.

If you're interested in some great-tasting, different food, this is your place. Enjoy.
