Went for breakfast and had a Benedict. Very good. Eggs were done right and the sauce was good. Wait staff were friendly and service was attentive.

Not overly busy when we stopped, but took like forever to get service. We both had a full breakfast and found it good, but nothing that stood out. As I have said in many reviews, at the beach it's sometimes hard to consistently find "consistency"😄!...More

Very slow service, ham and cheese omelette had so much grease inside it the eggs were saturated and could only eat the top portion of egg and the ham was over cooked and dry. Much better places to eat in town.

This restaurant was more gift shop than a restaurant. The food and service was just so so but good size servings
