My husband had the omlet with "everything but the kitchen sink". I swear it was enough for 4 people. I always have the biscuit and gravy. The gravy is unlike any other I've ever had. It is delicious and the biscuits are huge!

Just what you would expect of a good App restaurant. Not fancy, but excellent food, great view on the water, lots of character, terrific service and really, really good prices. Been there forever...probably tells you something. Great for breakfast and lunch. Never been for dinner....More
