Coming from NY we have some of the best food. One would not think that you would find such cuisine on BI. But Eli's has it! Our dinner was absolutely exquisite! One of our best meals!

Nothing beats Ernie's for breakfast. Extensive menu, even smoothies. Pancakes are amazing. Great service. A must.

Ernies is always our go to spot for Breakfast! Get there early because the lines can become very long. Strawberry Panckes and Grits are our number one choice

A reasonable place to eat a great breakfast. Eggs, toasts, bacon and potatoes were all delicious. The location is PRIMO being next to a gift shop and on Water St.

Overall disappointed. View was nice but food was awful. My wife's breakfast sandwich had the heal of the loaf as one of the pieces. Coffee was terrible. Sorry. Just not good.

Routine breakfast fare. Had a surcharge on my omelet (noted on menu). Omelet came with toast but no potatoes. $3.75 to add potatoes to egg dish. I've never heard of an omelet being served without breakfast potatoes. The omelet came to the table hot as did my wife's pancakes. Friendly and fast service.

The owner(a scowled-face older blond woman) told the waitress to have us buy a bottled water! Food was always ok.. How bad can breakfast/eggs be?? Somewhat over-priced..I'll NEVER return. There are many other,more hospitable places on... More

Great spot to visit right off the ferry. My husband and I had a delicious breakfast that was standard breakfast fare and that's exactly what we wanted. Would have liked to sit on the deck but it wasn't open? They had a reason, can't recall what it was. Not a big deal. Small place but cute and comfortable. Had a... More
