“Great breakfast spot!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We always enjoy a stop at the Pony when visiting Ocracoke. Most likely you will find a wait, but the turnover is quick.
Extensive menu of typical breakfast fare. Biscuits are homemade and delicious. A must try is the Pony Salsa Cheese Eggs. Your preferred choice of cooked eggs over hash browns, topped with cheese, salsa, and sour cream-just amazing!
Very friendly and fast service; an Ocracoke tradition.

“Best Breakfast on Ocracoke Island”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We ate here on Sunday morning around 0730.The hostess seated us promptly and there were plenty of waitresses for the large dining area. Good coffee and abundant portions of good "down-home" cooking. Food was prepared as ordered and arrived quickly. At departure there was around 10 people waiting for seats, but as organized as this restaurant was, I'm sure it did not take long for them to be seated. Limited hours, but worth the visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Warm and inviting, we walked the short distance from our motel to the Pony. It was well attended but not crowded yet. Friendly cashier/greeter and wait staff. The food was fabulous. Big old southern bisquits and the pony potatoes are a must try, different with salsa and sour cream but then that's what vacations are for, right?

Large portions for the price! Friendly, welcoming staff and a busy place on a Saturday morning! The ham biscuits were some of the best ever!
