We drove about 45 minutes to eat breakfast here. Not sure it was worth the drive, the wait and then to eat. The food was good and the service was good as well. We tried a few different plates here and all seemed to be good. The macadamia sauce they use on pancakes was divine and the pineapple sausage was... More

Go there for the standard grease breakfast, it's great. The Mochiko chicken was an awesome fried chicken dish to add to my waffles. Service wise it was terrible. The lady was a bit slack placing people at tables; we stood outside in the rain, while there were free tables inside. Our server disappeared on a break, and we had to... More

Went because of the reviews. Food was very good. I had the crispy bacon omelet and the wife had the waffle with the Mac Nut Sauce. Service was OK except they forgot our coffee. Very busy but everything moves quickly. Oh, and cash only. ATM inside but they dont take cards, cheques or travelers cheques.

This is a good place to have breakfast. The restaurant is nicely decorated with sports items. It is busy & there is usually a line to get in. They are known for their 'Macadamia Nut Pancake Sauce'.

Food was good. You can expect a wait. Little more expensive than I'd like for breakfast but I'm glad we tried it.

We had a few hours to spend before boarding our NCL cruise and made the best decision to take the rental car for a drive to Boots & Kimo's! What a fun atmosphere. We had a large party of eight and they were able to seat us all together. We are from the breakfast menu and everyone was thrilled. Pancakes... More

We went for a late breakfast on a Saturday, it was crowded and the service was very slow. Most of all we were disappointed with the food. I got the banana pancakes with mac nut sauce and they were very ordinary pancakes with a sauce that was not as good as the coconut sauce I had on pancakes elsewhere.

I was taken here by my cousins. They ordered me up the macadamia pancakes and Portuguese sausage. I promise you, the next time I'm there, they will be my first stop!

If you come here only once, you have to have the pancakes with macadamia nut syrup (sauce). It's really a one of a kind and quite delicious. They have a new location since we were there before and its a little bigger, but its not huge. There was a line outside by the time we left.

Thank RLMartin
