My daughter and I ate here. Arrived just before 12n. There were only 3 other parties seated when we arrived. My daughter ordered a "large" Greek salad. I ordered a vegetable plate. We placed our order around1205p. We didn't receive our food until 1230p. Our order did not require much prep time. I am unsure what the problem was. Several parties that were seated after us received their food in a timely fashion. Our waitress Debra had the personality of a wet dish cloth. She was very aloof and not good at pretending to care about our dining experience. The food was ok. My daughters "large" salad had approximately half of a small chicken breast on it, a couple slices of tomato, including the core, some brown lettuce, and a boiled egg that was green. Was not pleased at all. Will never return here. DO NOT PATRONAGE THIS ESTABLISHMENT!

Nice, clean, friendly diner with good service and good prices. Went for an early breakfast and enjoyed fresh eggs, bacon, potatoes, biscuits, and coffee.

The staff was very friendly and the price was right, but the food was pretty standard, bordering on bland. Our waitress forgot to being us a check and she was done as I saw her eating dinner at the counter. We chose this restaurant because the menu was varied and would meet he diverse tastes of our family; everything was adequate but nothing was great.

Two of our favorite dinner dishes were stuffed flounder and fried chicken. We ate biscuits & gravy for breakfast. A good country favorite! Servings were large enough to share. Friendly staff & servers made our dining experience pleasurable. Can't wait to go back.

We had breakfast and dinner, it was very good. Good service, friendly staff, very reasonable prices and close to ocean, all a plus.
