“A good breakfast place”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We heard about how great their breakfast was and decided to try them out. There was a line out the door which worried us, but it moved fast and they got us seated in about fifteen minutes. The service was good and friendly, and the food was good. They had two large specials boards that offered a lot of unusual selections, all of which looked very intriguing.
Everyone enjoyed their breakfast, and the place was really good. We'll go there again.

“Bad name, bad parking, bad seating process, decent food”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

The name is ridiculous and pulling in and out of the place is a sweet pain in the *ss, but the most annoying is the dude who doesn't keep a wait list and basically causes everyone waiting to feel uneasy as they hope he has it straight. We sit at the counter although recently we had a young kid who forgot to pour our coffees (did bring the cups) then forgot our juice and our water. Wake up! Had to be some staff's "grandson"..,

“Local Favorite any Time of Year”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

For me, Grumpy's is best on a cold winter morning for home made hash and a stack of pancakes. Imaginative omlettes and eggs benedict are always good. After church times on Sundays are insanely busy. Closes at 2pm. The service is always super fast and friendly. Tip: Call ahead for your order and take it to the beach, or stop in for the muffins and coffee to go. Ignore that "chain."

“Yummy Breakfast”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Six of us went for breakfast. Each one of us loved our breakfasts. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. The muffins are delicious! There was a wait outside the building but the line moved very quickly.

“Breakfast at Grumpy's”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I may be going against popular opinion. We found Grumpy's to be average for breakfast. The Pros,, large portions, moderate pricing friendly atmosphere unlimited coffee.. clean facility. The Cons, food quality. There were seven of us. We tried a variety of food from the menu. The egg dishes were good. The pancakes French toast and meat were sub par. Nothing bad .. just flat and tasteless. Coffee was watered down. You could see to the bottom of the cup. The restaurant is always busy especially on summer weekends. It is OK, but don't go out of you way.
