We have been here twice now. We had the french toast and the crab cake eggs benedict this visit. Both were exceptional but the benedict with the crab 🦀 was a home run. I don't think I'll order anything else now that I've had that....More

Very attractive setting. Bring a jacket for outdoor dining. They do provide blankets which is a nice touch. Food was quite good as well as the service. Plantation style building.

I don't think so specifically, but virtually everything they have works for kids -- like pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc -- and the food and setting is great. I have often taken young children here.
