We had 'take out' burgers and chips which were very good. Service could not have been more professional or friendly.

“Yummy Breakfast!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

My husband and I visited the Big Wave Cafe for breakfast while we were spending the weekend at a nearby Inn. We both had eggs, I had sausage and he had bacon; country potatoes and toast. Sounds like a normal breakfast, right? Well, it was outstanding! My scrambled eggs were done perfectly- light and fluffy and no raw stuff. The hub's eggs were over easy and delicious. The potatoes were chunky and cooked the same all the way through with a tasty crispness on the outside. The best was the bacon and sausage, though. We shared and both agreed we have never tasted better. Great service by a nice staff. Very clean, with lots of natural light. Highly recommend.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Best Clam chowder in a long, long time! This stuff isn't thickened with too much flour. Super creamy with lots of tender clams, no sand! :-) Caesar salad was not the best I've had but good, fish and chips were phenomenal! Wanted the crab cakes but at $18 for an appetizer I passed. Otherwise the prices were average for a seafood place. Great service and very comfortable, clean atmosphere. Lots of booths by the windows and tables in the middle. Will def be back for more chowder!
