Great spot for breakfast, people watching, etc. This is one of the best breakfasts I had there, and the food was perfect. The staff is fun and friendly, and the people watching is even better. Expect that some people will bring their dogs, but this shouldn't be an issue unless you just can't handle that sort of thing. The staff was helpful and made accommodations for our preferences. The gravy for the biscuits was really good, the french toast was fantastic, as was really everything. Expect a wait, but its worth it.

Based on the picture on Trip Advisor we were expecting a view of the water and not the parking lot. Service is horrible and starts with the unfriendly hostess who was annoyed when we couldn't decide on indoor or outdoor dining. We choose indoors because it was so hot outside but we would have been better off out since there was no ac on inside. The waitress laughed when I asked for an unsweetened ice tea. When I asked what was so funny she said you must not be from here. I'm not really sure why this was so funny. Unsweetened tea is fairly common even in the south. We waited more than 25 minutes for our food. I could understand if the place was packed but it was only half full. The staff seemed more interested in socializing with each other and the locals. We order a cheeseburger, a grilled ham & grilled cheese and my tasteless tuna melt. The cheeseburger and grilled cheese were both fine. Our waitress never appeared again. We had to ask another server for our bill. All in all a rather disappointing experience and we will not be returning in the future.

My wife and I wanted to find some solid home style breakfast on the island. Thanks to Tripadvisor reviewers we found this great location.

Put our name on the long list at 10:00am. Didn't mind waiting since there was such a crowd, we figured the food must be worth it! Around 10:30 we began to wonder why we were not being seated. The older woman doing the seating completely skipped over our name and seated someone else. When we announced we were leaving, we have been waiting for about 40 minutes, all she commented was "sorry". Any business that operates in this way and turns down hungry customers deserves to be put out of business. Vacation ruining potential.
