“A must!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Been here forever, it's like the place everyone hangs out at after a big game. Ice cream, fries, burgers.

“Convenient location, OK breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had breakfast here twice as it was very close to our hotel (Emerald Isle). Seating is very limited and prices are pretty much in line with everything on the Island. Our breakfast items were OK- no one complaining and we did come back a second time. You need to order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Very much a basic, "up north" type of place. If the place is full, I think the kitchen has a hard time keeping up. It's more of an ice cream place.

“Worst breakfast I ever had”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Had ice cream here first night on the island and the place was hopping. Decided to have a quick breakfast the next morning. After a long wait I head someone scraping toast. Really burnt toast hash browns cooked on a grill that had something burnt on it and over easy eggs that were brown on the bottom and the yokes hard. Stick to the ice cream.

“Pricey, but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Enjoyed Daddy Frank's several times while on the island. Sure, you can buy a quart of ice cream for what they charge for a waffle cone, but we overlooked that for the quaint little ice cream shop.
