“Good breakfast, long lines”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We visited Grumpy's because it was near our hotel. It is hugely popular and attracts a large crowd. The line moves fairly quickly though. The food was very good and the prices reasonable. We were there on two mornings and learned the second day that you may have less of a wait if you eat at the counter. That's a good idea unless you have a large group.

“Worth the nuisance”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Grumpy's is a great place for breakfast and maybe better for a late breakfast or lunch. It is always jammed, with good reason. My only beefs are the baked goods, which always seem a little stale, somehow, and the staff all seem "newly bred or nearly dead". They need to get the children and old ladies into other roles, where they aren't underfoot or blocking the exits. Other than that it's awesome.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Absolutely loved this place! There was a short wait for our party of 8 but it wasn't bad at all. Our waitress was super lovely, cheerful and kind. Half our table ordered breakfast which looked delicious while the rest of us ordered lunch. A couple of us ordered the Cape Cod Reuben (fish and coleslaw) which they loved. The standard Reuben was awesome as well. It was pouring out when we went but the views looked great!

Will definitely be back to this place!

We are locals and love to visit Grumpy's year round. Very generous servings. Wonderful corn cakes, omelets, and egg scrambles. Highly efficient and pleasant staff.
