If you are looking for the real deal in beach dining look no farther. The place is rustic and the food is fantastic; servings are generous. It's laid back and the waitresses are cool and relaxed. We loved it. Check it out!

Tried to have breakfast on a Sunday but the wait was beyond our children's hungry buttons. So we came back Monday and with the sun shining were lucky to get a corner table on the patio with a view of the water. The menu had so many great options we will definitely put on our list to come back!

We had a variety of breakfast dishes and all were very good. Even though pancakes are not necessarily nutritious, they are a must...come on, it's a pancake house! The variety of pancakes seemed endless. I had the specialty pancakes of the day...coconut pineapple. Yes, they are worth the calories! Weekdays are somewhat less crowded...weekends, plan to wait a very long... More

We often go to Uncle Bill's for breakfast. We have been a customer for any years and love the food. The food is so good there is usually a long line waiting for up to 45 minutes. There is an inside and outside eating area. It is also a family and kid friendly breakfast restaurant and we see couples, friends,... More

This place came highly recommended and I wasn't disappointed. The pancakes were huge and there was 2pcs with every breakfast meal we ordered. The corned beef hash and Mitch's scrambled eggs were to die for!

Small place, but to be expected for a location so close to the beach. Everything we had for breakfast was tasty and the service was good. Pancakes were larger than we expected! Will be back.

The view from the terrace is really nice. This place seems to be regarded as mostly a breakfast joint. We had lunch here, and it was good. The $9 bacon avocado cheeseburger well exceeded my expectations. The fries and sweet potato fries were superb. The kids had pancakes, and didn't complain.

Great place with a nice location and surprisingly affordable prices. The only problem is the coffee could be stronger but I recommend going.

Delicious food, great service. It´s walking distance from the beach, so after you eat you can go for a walk.
