“Nothing Special”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I had the spinach and Swiss cheese omelet with hash browns and whole wheat toast. Omelet was ok and the hash browns were cold. Bottomless decaf coffee was weak. Service was good but the people clearing away the dishes into the bins should be more thoughtful of the patrons. It was so loud when they put the plates in the bins and unpleasant while trying to eat. My husband had poached eggs (1 hard 1 runny) with ham and whole wheat toast and hash browns (his were warm). He felt his meal was average.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

How do you mess up breakfast? Were these fake eggs? Pancakes ok. Syrup warm - a nice touch. Bacon not even good...Coffee ok. Disappointed as this place has been around a long time and I like to support the old spots. I won't go back to this one!

“Good locals' breakfast”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Good inexpensive breakfast. Yummy huge biscuits and good grits. My kid had french toast and bacon from the kids' menu and the other three of us had the breakfast special with two eggs, toast and grits. All good and very very affordable. The coffee was too weak for me but the others liked it. We're visiting family and this is their usual go-to breakfast place. Full of locals and great old Myrtle Beach photos. We'll be back, perhaps even tomorrow.

“Never Going Back”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Let me start by saying this was the worst breakfast ever. Service was okay. From there it was all downhill. Pancakes had no flavor and even butter and syrup didn't help. Sausage patties were probably cooked at least 2-3 hours previous to being served. They were dried out and cold and the bacon was limp and cold. Our waitress apologized and took both back to the kitchen. When she returned the sausage patties were now hot but dried out even more. The bacon was also probably put back on the grill but now tasted burnt from whatever was on the grill. We complained to the owner who told us he would make it right the next time we came in. There definitely will not be a next time. Also, way overpriced for what we ordered.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had a good breakfast. There seemed to be a lot of "locals" - I would go back just to look at the old pictures of early Myrtle Beach but the food was good too. Nice & efficient waitress.
