The buffet is full of the normal southern breakfast food. Gravy, sausage, bacon, ham, pancakes, French toast, waffles, grits, potatoes and more. Service is iffy. Some food is hot and some not so much. There is also an menu you can order from.

I cannot believe in this day and age that people will be saying that this restaurant is good the sign alone should discourage you if you have a conscience. I am appalled that you would even go there to even sample the horrible food and look at the menu the racist menu. If you look back in your ancestry you'll... More

Took forever to get seated. Food was OK and portions were good. If not for the pot of coffee they left on the table I'm sure we would've not gotten refills. Went to pay and was at register for over 5 minutes. We had a line of about 8 behind us before they came to take our money. Will not... More

We noticed the sign as we were staying at the beach nearby. Thought it was "interesting" on our way home we stopped for breakfast. We did the breakfast buffet. I honestly don't know the attraction other than the name. The food was ok, just filling. I'm at a point where i need more flavor not amount. Everything we chose seem... More

There are SO many places to eat breakfast in this area that are better. Service was great, but food on the bar not so much.

The coffee was delicious, and Tar Babies has the best ever biscuits and gravy! My omelette was just ok though. I'll definitely go back next year to try the buffet.

Stumbled upon this restaurant about 10 years ago! Buffet or menu you can't go wrong. Bar is always fresh and full. Waitress make you feel like family. Usually eat on way in to condo and way out. Love it!

Rainy morning, so we decided to go for breakfast. Saw this place online and to be honest, found the name hysterical. We both got the breakfast buffet and it was delicious. Everything was hat and fresh, even though it was early and not crowded. The waiter was on the spot, very friendly and attentive. We will be going back!!

Had to try a place named Tar Baby's. Their breakfast buffet is totally worth $9.99. My partner had the all you can eat pancakes for $4.99. Great place to eat breakfast. 🙂
