I agree with the others,not overly friendly. We arrived early, not crowded, still seemed to be slow with coffee and water. Food was good, seemed to come out in stages,rather than the whole table at the same time. Glad we tried,and nice porch seating but probably wouldn't go back.

Great service and good food in a low key beach summer joint. Hostess sensed we were not crazy about original table and offered to seat us on sunny porch.

We visited Sea Biscuit twice on our spring break vacation to IOP. Our visit was outstanding - food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We had such a great experience, we came back our final morning on IOP. Our second visit was good - the food was still great but the service was just okay. We were definitely spoiled... More

My daughter and I came for a late breakfast and had the Monte Cristo sandwich and gravy biscuit. Food was excellent and service was fast and friendly. Loved the cozy atmosphere and ate out on the screened porch which was nice.

Because it is so popular, there is usually a wait, but well worth the wait, Very reasonably priced, with plenty of choices for varied omelets. Their potatoes are sublime!

Went in for lunch, was able to get a table on screened in porch. Wife's salad was excellent but my crab cake special was on the small size for the price paid. Good though. Service okay but nothing special here, ok for casual lunch on IOP.

Called in a carry-out order. When I arrived one server said it was almost ready, but I could pay. One item had been omitted from the ticket. I told her and she charged me, and I paid, for the full order. She said she would bring it out to me. After waiting an inordinately long time, I went back to... More

The food here is always amazingly good for breakfast. This time I had the ham, spinach, and cream cheese omelette special. I was a little worried about the combination with the cream cheese, but it really worked - and it was stuffed. Their home fries are so tasty. I don't know how they do it because they don't look like... More

Getting past the less than friendly greeter (no southern hospitality here) the Sea Biscuit is a must for breakfast. Get there early as there is always a wait during high season. We sat on the enclosed porch and were promptly served hot coffee, tea, juice. Waitress was friendly and attentive Grandson had the mickey mouse pancake. He is 6 and... More

This is our 2nd trip to the Sea Biscuit for our post CRBR breakfast and it was just as good this time as it was on the 1st trip. The wait has been anywhere from 45mins to an hour both trips, the food is ABSOLUTELY worth the wait. I had the green chili, tomato & cheddar-jack omelette with fresh fruit,... More
