This place has always been good but is even better since the new owners and mgt came in a few years back. Super breakfast menu with large portions and very good service...I be been going for 10 years and have enjoyed every meal

We love Sunrise! Our family has been enjoying it for over ten years. The staff is excellent! Saturdays and Sundays are always extremely busy.

Okay, I know on Friday morning this place is really busy. I could have forgiven the FIFTY minute wait for breakfast IF and ONLY IF, the food OR the service had been decent. I'm not even saying good, just decent. I am livid with how horrible this experience was. Okay, let me say one good thing, the biscuits and hash were delicious. That's where the good ends. There were 6 of us. My steak was WAY overcooked (again a fifty minute wait so I was NOT sending it back) and tough as jerkey. My sister's poached egg looked HARD boiled, and her daughters pancake was hard to cut, as if it had spent 30 minutes under a heat lamp. My daughters omelet was so dry she didn't even want it, just ate her toast. My brother-in-laws potatoes were soaked in oil, and not edible. It's not hard to make a good breakfast, I mean REALLY. To add to the disappointment the waitress was horribly 'surly', it was obvious she was having a rough day. I'm appalled this place had a 'certificate of excellence' from TA on their counter. I almost stole it. I will not even fathom returning to this place. EVER. Not even a free meal would get me back in the door. If I hadn't been leaving town, I would've talked to the manager and raised hell, but my sister was 'treating' and I was leaving....THANKFULLY

I want to apologize for your recent experience at our restaurant. We truly strive to provide quality service and food, and understand that when those standards aren't met it can be very disappointing. We will use your feedback to improve our processes and address your concerns. Please know that it's not typical of our wait staff and kitchen crew to provide lacking care of our customers and hope that you will accept a gift card for your family to try us again. Thank you and hope we have the chance to serve you again!
Sincerely, Sunrise Management

We were there at about 1 p.m. and the place was pretty deserted. The food was so-so, and it's pretty hard to mess up breakfast. When we needed something our waitress walked by several times as we tried to flag her down to no avail. Finally we got the attention of one of the other waitresses who went and got her for us. There are a lot of options for breakfast in Calabash, this would not be someplace I'd choose to go again.
