We opted to check this place out for a good breakfast. It was very quick and very tasty. Had the braised eggs, their version of poached eggs and they were cooked perfectly. The view was nice, right on the dock in the marina. It is a small place and was full the entire time we were there. It was a... More

I really like the food here. I have eaten here twice and plan on eating here again. I was just a little disappointed in the pancakes I ordered. They were the organic oatmeal pancakes and I guess I expected them to be different from other pancakes. My friends omelet looked amazing and I had order envy. I would have liked... More

I love a good breakfast, My husband and I went for brunch after I ran the Atlantic City Half Marathon yesterday . We had our dog with us on vacation, and picked because of the Yelp reviews and because there was outside seating so we could bring our dog. Great food and fun atmosphere.... Really pleasant place to sit and... More

Pancakes so good, my kids started eating them without syrup and we got our food in less than 15 minutes. We also enjoyed our bacon, scrapple, grits and eggs. Yes, I said grits. If you're never been, you're missing out.

Went during a weekday. Sat inside although we could have sat along the water outside. Seating is a bit tight but fine. Breakfast was good, my kids liked the pancakes, omelets were great, prices good and service was great. This place and the surrounding area is in a different, waterside area with open lawns and gravel parking areas for charter... More

Small diner but great food. Staff were super friendly. I had the apple cinnamon pancakes & was not disappointed! Portions were big & reasonably priced. My husband tried the "scrapple" something he has never had before but was pleasantly surprised. Seating is tight so be prepared but the food & service made up for the cramped seating! It's a drive...

Highly recommend the blueberry pancakes...the best I have ever tasted. We went twice. Both times we waited about 30 minutes, but the pancakes were worth the wait. Friendly service.

The blueberry pancakes are amazing. Thin, but cooked to perfection, the blueberries have the pop you expect from a fresh blueberry. Just the right amount of sweetness to compliment the fruit. Our eggs were cooked to perfection, and the service was very welcoming.

I found this family oriented restaurant on a previous visit while taking my son parasailing. I visit here each time I come. The food is phenomenal! They give you so much food for a great price. The service is great, there is always a line but the hostess moves fast to get you seated. This is a family friendly restaurant... More
