We happened to walk by on a Saturday morning and were able to be seated very quickly. We all were very pleased with our breakfast choices. My son got the buffet so he could have pancakes, waffles, and French toast and loved them all (those...More

I must start by saying "I LOVE BREAKFAST"! We walked down from our hotel in hopes of finding somewhere good for breakfast. We sat down at the Sandcastle because they had a nice covered outdoor seating area. The waiter told us about the breakfast buffet...More

This place is great. I forgot to acknowledge the fantastic, 'take care of you' service that we received there. The waiters name was Austin and went out of his way to ensure we were well taken care of. Great guy!

The soup is full of potatoes as filler and they only have cheap hot sauce. The crab cakes were OK at best - absolutely no comparison to any crab cake in Baltimore .

I think the main attraction of this place is the buffet. I get it. However, I ordered a simple breakfast and they managed to screw it up. Badly. I ordered scrambled eggs, english muffin and grits. Grits were wayyyy too salty, the eggs were runny...More

Freshly prepared waffle, pancakes or French toast if you eat off the buffet. The buffet eggs were - ugh- buffet eggs. The grits and cinnamon rolls were good. Coffee was mediocre.
