“Great food and great prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We recently had lunchat the The Good Life while visiting the OBX. Highly recommend this establishment. Service was great, staff very friendly and the food was just as good. A diverse menu, with plenty of healthy options make this one of our favorites on the OBX!

“Awful Breakfast -- AVOID this place.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

I used to say it was pretty much impossible to ruin breakfast. I was wrong. The Good Life Eatery finds a way.
First and foremost the server/cashier that was there on September 21, 2012 has a serious attitude problem. She probably should not be in any sort of public-facing service job at all. She was just rude and nasty from beginning to end.
She frowned upon asking the kitchen for hard poached eggs. When the eggs finally came out 25 minutes later, they were not hard poached and she reluctantly took them back and scoffed, "sorry". 20 minutes later they came out again with stale home fries and without the sausage that I ordered.
My wife ordered biscuits and gravy with eggs. The gravy was obviously from a can and on top of that it made her sick nearly immediately.
She does report that the restrooms at this 'restaurant' are clean. That's is only redeeming feature.

There are plenty of great places to have breakfast in the OBX. Avoid this calamity at all costs.

“A Great Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Had lunch here and enjoyed it so much. Very healthy menu selections and prices reasonable. Glad to learn they also do catering and expect to use that service on our next visit.

“Great breakfast, good coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a good place to get good coffee and breakfast while on vacation. Good value without the crowds at Stackem High or the buffetts.
