I loved this hotel. We booked late and had to move rooms, the second room was better! They are slowly but surely renovating all the rooms and the ones that are finished are beautiful. They have a great breakfast in the morning, delicious! At happy hour they put out yummy hor'derves with wine and beer. The staff is mostly Eastern... More

Came in for a night cap & indulged in some flaming coffees..... Absolutely amazing! Service was terrific & the show put on by the waiter whilst preparing the coffees was brilliant entertainment!

Stayed at a nearby hotel that doesn't serve breakfast, so enjoyed the reasonably-priced but very elaborate buffet breakfast at the 1661 Inn. There is anything and everything you could possibly want to eat, both sweet and savory, and complimentary bubbly and Mimosas. Plus, eggs cooked to order. The owner of the Inn is gracious and the staff are friendly and... More

We visited bank holiday weekend for a later morning brunch. The food was great and the service efficient and friendly. Most of the food is self service and there was plenty of choice. The views are also impressively, although sadly the weather was not great when we visited. We will certainly be back a time some point.

What a way to start your day! Don't miss the brunch at 1661. The food is great and you can't beat the scenery. We enjoyed meeting other visitors while our two young sons played on the lawn and swing set.

Great place to have breakfast, or dinner, the dining room overlooks the Atlantic. 1661, is close to downtown, so is easily walkable, if you decide to drive, there is ample parking.

Thank you for your review and we were glad to see that you enjoyed the location! We serve breakfast year-round (during the season it is our full champagne buffet breakfast and during the quiet season it is a bit more limited, but still a full breakfast!). We do not serve lunch or dinner at any time during the year. From... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable brunch here. Champagne brunch for $21.95 is a pretty good value on the island or anywhere. Champagne and mimosas are included. Eggs and omelets are made to order in the kitchen and then brought out to the table. There was corn-beef hash, ham, fish, muffins, french toast, and fruit among other items.... More

A buffet is not always easy to pull off, and breakfast food is even more difficult. However, I was very impressed with the breakfast buffet at the 1661. The ocean view itself was worth the trip. We were immediately seated upon arrival and served a carafe of coffee. The server also took our order for any eggs or omelets which... More

To start...great coffee! you can order any style eggs and self-serve the rest. A nice variety of food and beverages (Mimosas included in the price.) Friendly staff and great outdoor seating.

Memorial Day through Columbus Day the 1661 Inn serves its renowned full champagne buffet breakfast each morning. The breakfast buffet features an omelet station, homemade corned beef hash, eggs, pancakes or french toast and a whole lot more! During the quieter seasons, a smaller version of our buffet is available as well. For the 2016 summer season, we will be introducing a small appetizer menu, desserts and flaming coffees at the new 1661 bar starting at 5:00pm.
