This place has been around for years and when I ate there 25 years ago it was much better than now. Building needs updating badly and also the food isn't good

Noon breakfast on our way off the island. Quick service. Delicious country ham and fluffy biscuit! Cubed potato hashbrowns were awesome. Toast with white gravy was just right.

Went there for breakfast as it is close to the condo we rented. Was very busy but we were seated after a short wait. The pancakes were fluffy and warm, and the grits and the biscuit were delicious. Highly recommend for breakfast.

On a visit to Oak Island, my husband, siblings, nephew, and I had breakfast here. We were expecting a pretty long wait, but it only ended up being about 20 minutes, which was pretty good for a party of 6. The food offerings were pretty...More
