Most of the cooking is done right behind the diner style front counter. Eggs any style, chipped beef, omelettes, hotcakes and of course grits (cooked just about any style) are breakfast specialties and served anytime. Lunch is full of specials, deli offerings and big, juicy burgers. Owned locally. Staff is well known for being warm and friendly. Come have breakfast with us anytime!

“Great breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2010

Boy, their breakfast is great. Try the seafood omlet which is STUFFED with shrimp and crab. Everything is good. Their lunches are good too. I like that you can get the kind of sandwiches you grew up with...grilled cheese is my favorite. They close mid-afternoon...which always disappoints me.

“The most INCREDIBLE breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

We ordered breakfast to go one morning from here during our vacation and it was incredible! We ordered chipped beef over toast with hashbrowns, blueberry pancakes and shrimp & gritts.

The chipped beef was the BEST I have ever had in my life. It was incredible. The pancakes were light and thin (like i like them) and were so so good. We had never had shrimp and gritts by wow these were good. The gritts have a layer of sausage gravy over them followed by the shrimp topping. I pretty much craved their food the rest of the trip so the morning we left, we stopped by there bright and early and got breakfast to go. (Two order of chipped beef over toast!) We are going back down this upcomming weekend and I have already made plans to get breakfast here! I HIGHLY recommend this place.

“Great Omeletes and huge biscuits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2010

The place was slammed both mornings but we got good service and the food was awesome.. Omelettes were big and the biscuits are as massive as hamburger buns.. Very pleased except the old lady that seats you is as friendly as a wasp.. Needs to learn some customer service..

“Great Food; Terrible Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2010

Food was great, but the service was terrible. Our server only had a few tables of customers but she was rarely seen. The greeter took our drink order and then our server finally came to the table. Then she didn't reappear for 10 minutes to take our order. She didn't come by the table but once or twice and several at the table were wanting refills on coffee but it took a long time for her to come by. They do not have seating available for parties larger than four. Six of us were crammed into a table for four. With parties of six or more, they add a mandatory 20% tip which was not warranted for the service we received.
