Two of my favorite things - beaches and all you can eat pancakes. Never had them together, but I can say that they really work. Order at the counter, and then grab a table that is literally on the beach. The omelets were tasty as well, but franly, if you can order all you can eat pancakes, why wouldn't you?

Place your order at the counter, find a table, inside or outside & display your order number for quick service. Food is good. Regular fare for the island. Live entertainment is a plus. Watching the crowd dance to the oldies was fun. Great spot to catch the sunset, but get their early if you want to stay for sunset, as... More

Breakfast on the pier is just lovely on a warm morning. The bay opens in front of you, the pelicans abound, and the coffee is very good. We ate conventional breakfast meals (omelette and eggs over easy) with bottomless cups of coffee and were much pleased with the prompt, informal service and the quality of the food. The buy one,...

Set on a lovely beach, great for a cold (if quite expensive) beer and margarita but worth it just for the location. Food was good too, kids and adults were all happy so all in a great day at the beach

Came to listen to the Sea Notes Jazz Band. Food was good and the service better. However, found it a bit pricy for eating on plastic plates. Atmosphere was great. Nothing too much better than listening to a good jazz band on the beach in February.

This was a nice solid breakfast, we had the eggs with toast, meat and grits, and also the all you can eat pancake breakfast. It was very good, the grits had a nice creamy texture, and the pancakes were delicious. My only reason for a 4 versus 5 was the service. The lady at the register was very friendly and... More

We went here the last night of our trip at about 5:30. There was live music, Tony, and he was surprisingly good. There were people of all ages dancing and having dinner. We had a fish sandwich and a club sandwich. There was no pressure to order a lot, or even to order. We sat under an Canopy listening to... More

Cute,comfy little restaurant. Good food and service was excellent. Also sits right on the beach. If you sit outside you can take in the beautiful beach and have a wonderful breakfast.

This has hometown written all over it. We had breakfast on the beach and it was excellent. We were in town for a gymanstics meet and these great folks were able to fit 43 of us at one large table on the beach for dinner. They were prompt, courteous, and alot of fun. We had no problems with separate checks... More
