The food here was great! The best part was the exceptional service! We were traveling with friends and this is where we met every morning. The staff was friendly and fast! We had great breakfast every morning thanks to the wonderful staff here!

They usually have live music for HH, and maybe 12 tables outside with umbrellas and more tables inside. Really good service, there's an outside bar, they serve Breakfast and lunch. I have been for both and the breakfast... More

Restaurant was closed Monday and Tuesday of our trip, but we did have breakfast there on Wednesday before checking out and it was wonderful. The waitress was very pleasant for 7:30 am and the french toast was amazing.

Convenient location plus good food. Even better, it was under the same roof as our hotel. Excellent for a rainy morning to arrive dry for breakfast. The pool side bar was also a nice touch.

We were fortunate enough to stumble upon the Rio Grande cafe last summer when we stayed at the Econolodge while in town for a basketball tournament. Immediately found out that this is a favorite of the locals, which I think is important. Outside tiki bar area has a great atmosphere, servers and bartenders are very friendly. Food is awesome and...

Ok, I have been eating veggie omelets all over Ocean City and Fenwick Island and by far this is the best! So stuffed with veggies; spinach, mushrooms, etc. I couldn't finish it!

For a hotel restaurant (and an Econo Lodge for that matter), this placed rocked!!! The breakfast are large enough to send to over seas to stop hunger, And the lunches are even bigger! When I ordered a chicken salad sandwich and it was only $7.00, I figured, what the heck - I'll stop and get something later! NO WAY. Filled... More
