Food was ok, service was awful. We watched table after table get waited on and served before us, that came in long after us....should have left, but we wanted breakfast. Won’t be going back.

Service is great, friendly servers, clean place. It is easy to get a parking spot. Even has a buffet. Even a place in back if you come with a big crowd. Old pictures on wall from old time Wilmington.
