“It's review in the Restaurant Guide made it sound better than it was...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We were on our way out of town (chased out by the Nor'easter) and looking for a place to get breakfast. It was okay - nothing exciting. We both got Bacon & Cheese omelets, they were good but just average, they did have a LOT of bacon which was good. I got pancakes with mine, which were again good but nothing exciting. My husband got homefries, they were pretty unimpressive and he said they weren't very warm, nor were my pancakes, the room temp butter barely melted. The food came way too quickly which makes me think it was prepared ahead of time and was in some sort of warming tray. At least it was better than the breakfast we had on the boardwalk on Sunday AM. Should have just got the French Toast...

Thank you for visiting. We cook everything to order
nothing is kept in a heat source. I might note we have many
combinations omelettes which are cooked to order. We try
to make all of are customers happy. But it sound's like we
didn't live up to your expectations this visit. Hope you'll give us another try,

Our pancakes and eggs were cooked to perfection. The wait for a table was minimal. Our food was served quickly. The pancake flavor choices were awesome.

“Great place for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

I can tell you to be prepared to wait but pancakes are great. We go here for breakfast every year at least one morning, maybe two. We ride our bikes from our hotel and lock them up outside. This place is always busy but they turn the customers pretty fast. On this last trip the people were all outside waiting to be called and wait was 40 mins. We decided to ride our bikes to a different place for breakfast and off we went. Well we didn't realize how far it must of been up the coastal highway so after about 30mins of riding, we turned around and went back to Happy Jack's. When we returned the crowd had gotten smaller and they said 30min wait. We were actually called in about 20mins. We should of stayed and waited. The breakfast was well worth the ride back and the wait.
