Kay's has all day breakfast with an all you can eat, made to order menu, for $11.99. There were about 15 choices from eggs to pancakes to oatmeal. The sausage and egg omlet was good, and the chocolate chip pancakes are a must have.

Like many of the other folks here, I agree, this is one of THE best places to eat breakfast on the lake. It is only open seasonally, so you may want to call and confirm that they're serving their yummy food. The 'host' is hit and miss, sometimes he's friendly, sometimes he doesn't say a word, but once you get... More

I Love this place for breakfast! A real diner atmosphere and super nice waitresses! Ate early on a Sunday morning and they kept the hot coffee refilled and served a mean omelette! Always a great place to stop even on the off season!

Kay's is a local place with a huge breakfast menu. We passed on the all you can eat option as our regular menu option was more than filling. Our server was prompt and cordial. Kept our coffee hot(a must for the wife and I). Food was cooked just right. Would definitely recommend and will eat here again.

Good food quick service. Husbands plate a little bland as well as mine salt and pepper helped we figured probably for the older people that come here. All in all will come again as Kay's is a classic been here for almost 20 yrs since we have been at the lake maybe longer.

I used to love this place for breakfast, but the last few times I went there the service was so slow it was almost time for lunch. So no more. They always have some type of excuse for the long time for the food, and it seems to be that they are under staffed. There are many places to go... More

We ate here for breakfast on our way back home. The food was really good. The pecan pancakes were delicious. The all you can eat breakfast is nice to try each item.

Great variety of breakfast choices. Anyone can make pancakes, eggs and bacon but Kay's kicks it up with dozens of varieties of pancakes, omelets, breakfast meats and the biscuits and gravy are done just right...little spice, little sausage, nice and thick served hot on a soft fresh biscuit. Large portions so don't be afraid to share.

The food is pretty good. We did the all you can eat breakfast and it seems to be well worth the price of $11.50. If you leave hungry, you left too soon! The servers try really hard to stay up with the costumer demand. I would suggest to this place to hire a person just to serve coffee and drinks.... More
