This place was fairly slow when we arrived, but it soon got busy. Our waitress was so quick and literally running to get orders taken and food delivered (I overheard they called in another employee to help). I always appreciate an employee (of any kind)...More

Great breakfast, coffee on the table, plenty of tasty food. We pulled in because the sign on the road said $5.95 special but the menu had so many tasty looking choices we had those.

Visited twice, enjoyed both times. A highlight has got to be the servers. They are super friendly, accommodating, and engaging. The food is on par with what you would expect, solidly made, but nothing innovative. Chowder, Caesar, fish and chips, all correctly prepared and tailored...More

Pretty good meal, if ya want a quick seafood meal, not bad. Pretty busy place, tight parking, but worth the wait.

My husband and I drove 90 miles to eat breakfast here. Totally worth it. It's a relaxed environment, so not recommended for those who are rushing for time.

I had the prime rib and my husband had the smoked brisket. Both meals were fabulous. the service was wonderful and the wait staff were friendly. We came from out of town and we can hardly wait to go back. DF

Shared a fish sandwich which was good. Not outstanding and service was just adequate. They do serve fresh fish and have been around area forever. Wish they would step up for a nicer location with ocean views. Charge a little more for ambience.

If my memory serves, you get a full breakfast for around $10 not including your drinks.
