We arrived around 10:30 during the week and had about a 15 minute wait. Be sure to stay within hearing distance so you can hear the hostess call your name- because you lose your spot in line to others if you don't hear them! This is a very small restaurant, and is crowded every time we pass by.
We ordered coffee, pancakes, and omelets-the food was hot and delicious. Huge portions of food too-we couldn't eat it all! We will return to this restaurant!

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere! It is styled like an old-fashioned diner. The servers were so polite and helpful -- a great experience.

These crab eggs Benedict are the best we have EVER tasted. We came by three years ago and our first stop this time was back at the Blue Dolphin. well-seasoned, tons of lump crabmeat, and great sides. It is worth arranging your travel itinerary so you get in at least one meal here. It is a bright, cheerful breakfast spot with outstanding portions, wait staff and food. Everyone in my group gives it 5 stars. And they serve breakfast until 2 so you can sleep in and still have a great meal.

There is nothing on their menu that is not a 10 out of 10! It doesn't matter which meal you have at the Blue Dolphin, it will be delicious! I guarantee it!!

We were delighted to find this delicious little spot! The food was generous and the wait staff were extremely friendly. Breakfast is served all day, generous portions (we shared a meal and both went away stuffed), and a quaint, clean, diner type atmosphere.
