Been here upward of 20 times. App were good. Fair priced and well prepared meals. Very consistent. Can be extremely busy on the weekends and you may have to wait if you don't make a reservation. The same people work there all the time and they are all great. The owner works behind the register a lot and is always... More

Best food we had the entire vacation. Prices were great and the waitress was awesome. Get there early! This place was packed with limited seating and waiting area.

Best in ocean view. Jeff is an excellent host supported by an attentive team of servers. Try the hungry fisherman.

I LOVE this place!!!! The wait staff are so nice and the food is consistently outstanding. I usually order the East Beach and it is delish. I've also had the French toast and the waffles and they both were great too. They are always busy but service is normally good/fast.

My great aunt took my parents and I here to have breakfast celebrating my dad's 70th birthday. The staff was so friendly and very attentive. They even surprised my dad with an eclair that had a candle in it and all started singing to him. It made his day. The check even had a nice note on it for him... More

Hidden back in a strip mall this is a nice place that presents a quick and affordable array of food. I visited with friends for breakfast and the service was quick and efficient. The waitress, while very busy, still found time to keep a smile on her face and frequently stopped by our table to ask if everything was ok... More

This used to be a favorite. Food was always consistent, good, and fast for as busy it typically is. Service had always been friendly and attentive. Though a little pricy, it was worth the premium. It had been a while since I had last visited. It has apparently been sold. I decided to have breakfast on my birthday. I ordered... More

While waiting for a flight out of Norfolk airport we searched for a good place to enjoy a late breakfast and came up with the Sandfiddler Cafe. The reviews were pretty good so we decided to give it a try. We were really glad that we did. I ordered a triple cheese omelette with grits and fresh fruit for the... More
