We went here for an early dinner. It was a good decision as when we were leaving there was a long line of people waiting. Everyone was happy with their dinner choice. Best burger I've had in a while, crab cakes were good according to another member of the group, seafood bisque and flounder were great.

Yep, my grandpa used to make these for me and when I saw it on the menu I was thrilled! Great pimento cheese biscuits and try their own sauce. It't great on eggs, hash browns or burgers!

"In the end the pen will win"... First time I have not left a tip at a restaurant in 20 years. There was nobody in line when we got there. Waited 15 minutes at the door to be seated with people ,I think were waitresses, walking by us and no response. Finally, we decided maybe we should seat ourselves, so... More

We went here for breakfast and the food and service were both good. I always say it's hard to mess up breakfast foods! Was disappointed that they are well known for their pimento cheese but as soon as we were seated, we were told that they had no pimento cheese and no pancakes.

Our second day at the beach we stopped by this restaurant for breakfast. The prices were decent but the room was fairly loud so it wasn't as quiet as we would've liked.

I went with friends to have a breakfast. Great waitresses, they all made us laugh when we joked with him. I would go back just to have fun talking with them again. They have good omelettes. I enjoyed mine which had spinach and feta cheese. Mushrooms were added at request. Others with me had eggs and hashbrowns and sausage and... More

If it wasn't for the great staff I would rate this as terrible. The food was just awful. My niece ordered soup and it was clearly watered down. The burgers were not fresh and even though they had multiple seafood items on the menu they did not have cocktail sauce. The only good thing about this place is the staff,... More
