Grumpy's is always on our list for a breakfast visit when we come to the Cape. Open 6-2, you can always pop in for lunch as well, but it is their generous breakfast portions that keep us coming back year after year. It will be our last stop on our way back to Boston this morning but certainly not the... More

I hate to wait in line, so we check in, drive down to get Dunkin coffee come back and by then are usually seated. Best breakfast and home made muffins. I know breakfast is not a big deal but they do it five star. Nice family outing.

This is a must try place if you find yourself in Dennis, MA. There is usually a wait for a table but don't leave! Wait! You will not regret it! Wait staff are friendly and efficient! Food comes out quickly! Really anything we have eaten there has been great! Eggs, pancakes, hash.....it is all good!

After reading some of the reviews about Grumpy's we decided to check out the place for ourselves on our vacation. We learned mistake #1 is not to go on a weekend; after seeing a line out the door and not a single parking place to be had, with 2 very hungry kids in tow we decided to come back another... More

We visited Grumpy's while visiting the Cape. It was the best breakfast of the week. The eggs were fluffy, not greasy or runny. Everything was great and the service was very good too!

Always amazing. Always delicious. Same waitstaff for years, some of them even remember you! Lines on weekends and in the summer move very quickly, this place is a well oiled machine. The blueberry muffins are out of this world, and the omelets are huge and fluffy with fresh ingredients. When I ask for well done home fries... I get well... More

We are locals so we try to dine at as many places as possible on the "off-season". This is a great place for breakfast, but like the best places on the Cape it gets crowded in the summer. So if you come here in the summer, be prepared to wait. Our breakfast this morning was very good. The food was... More

The right place at the right time! Unique and hardy menu...potatoes with breakfast was an up sell...the way it should be! (Says the person who never gets potatoes...but pays the same!) One customer ordered Banana split waffle...whoa it was BEAUTIFUL!

Grumpy's is the kind of place that you imagine existed in gentler times. It is an old fashioned home cooking mecca for those who yearn for unpretentious good food. Breakfast is their specialty, pancakes are wonderful, omelets are great. The blackboard specials are inventive without being ridiculous. Great value. It is really crowded during the season, especially on weekends, but... More
