“Southern comfort food in a beach diner”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Visited on a Saturday around 11 am... they were only serving breakfast at that hour and we were already looking for lunch, so we waited till 11:30 to order. I ended up having the cheese grits and cajun shrimp (available for breakfast AND lunch) and my friend had a burger. The grits were excellent, and the shrimp were well-seasoned and plentiful. My friend enjoyed her burger. The only drawback was the frozen crinkle-cut fries that accompanied it. Really? We sat outside on their sheltered patio... very rustic and nice. Inside was crowded and warm - but it had a real olde-timey diner feel inside.

“Top breakfast spot”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

As a Brit this is what I expected an old school American diner should be.
Gets busy so get there early or you may have to wait for a table.
Outside seating available.
Great service & loved the hash.
Relaxed atmosphere, even when full.
Went a couple of times, consistent.
Closed on a Tuesday.

“BAD SERVER”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I have been going to this fantastic little restaurant for over 8 years on my annual girl's vacation and have always had an excellant experience - except this year. We were seated in the outdoor area and had a choice of 3 empty tables - we choose one out of the breeze. After our order was taken we again asked for our water that had been requested with our coffee. A pitcher of water and 4 plastic cups was placed on our table and she walked away. It did take a bit longer for our order - 3 omelettes and a Baby Ray sandwich and we noticed that another table - who had been seated after us, was more than half done their breakfast. When our 3 omelettes were served she apologized that the sandwich would be a little longer that she had forgotten to place the order. When I asked for some jam, one single package of grape jelly was placed in front of me and 3 more in the middle of the table. The sandwich was served a few minutes later. I know that one bad experience should not be an indication of the overall service but it sure put a bad taste in my mouth. We ate elsewhere for the rest of our trip.

“Great start to anniversary celebration!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Planned a day on Pass-A-Grille, started here for breakfast on our anniversary, knew hubby would appreciate the good service, fresh food and casual atmosphere. Seated in a few minutes in the covered outdoor area. Attentive server brought our drink order, sorry we didn't remember her name but she was server #4 on our receipt. Hubby enjoyed the Corned Beef Hash special and I had a Two egg breakfast (knowing we were going to attend the First Chowder Challenge at lunch so had to save room). Eggs were cooked perfectly and I loved the Cheese grits. Best compliment, we will definitely return.
