We had breakfast here on the first morning we stayed on SSI. It was a nice little place with good food and it was reasonably priced. We enjoyed this little place so much that we decided to come back for lunch a couple of days later.

Stopped here on a whim as we were shopping and sure glad we did. The food was excellent...everything was fresh and made to order. The portions were a nice size and the rates were reasonable. The service was friendly and accommodating.

Unique, nice semi-buffet of the usual breakfast dishes...bacon, sausage, eggs-to order, great cheese grits, fruit, yogurt, etc.Friendly wait-staff under the watchful eye of the owner. Inside and outside seating. Open all year, unlike many SSI restaurants, right in the Village near the pier..

We went for breakfast the first day we were on SSI. Friends had recommended their breakfast bar. When I first saw the place I thought hmmm...kinda rustic. But the food really was delicious! The bar had your standard items: bacon, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, etc. If you want pancakes or waffles they will cook those and bring them... More

Other reviewers have said what I was going to post. The flounder sandwich is excellent and the portion is very generous. The other party had a salmon salad and was very pleased. Our server was exceptional. They serve a half muffin with the salad, and we asked if we could have another for dessert. He said that he would check... More

Love the breakfast buffet that's offered. Plenty of options to choose from and you're sure to walk away content. Their other menu options are just as good too. The bacon, egg, and cheese croissant is one of my faves. Highly recommend for a full breakfast right in the heart of the pier village.

This is our "go-to" lunch spot. They have perfected fried flounder and the filet portions are very generous. The lunch special of 1/2 sandwich and cup of soup is a gracious plenty and is always wonderful. We're locals and eat here often.

We visited the Sand Castle on SSI Feb 11, 2017 for lunch with friends. I ordered the daily special, Catch of the Day, which was flounder on a bun priced at $9.95. The sandwich came with three generous pieces of broiled flounder, lettuce and tomato. I took two pieces of the flounder out of the sandwich and ate them separately... More
