For 30 years, I have remembered the General's Kitchen for their Creamed Chipped Beef and now after finally coming back, it is still as great as ever! It comes with two biscuits or toast and hash browns or grits. It is not salty or peppery...and is delicious. The beef itself is very tiny, so don't expect big pieces in your breakfast. My husband had the omelet. There is no outside dining, so we got our food carry-out. It kept it's heat for the short ride back to the hotel and was great!More

Our meal was not awful. But it certainly didn't impress. The service was careless, and the menu was overpriced. We went to Generals Kitchen at request of the other family we were visiting the beach with. They apologized for their recommendation on our way out...the door. At every other restaurant we've visited this week, we could split our checks so our families don't have to worry about squaring up later in the week. We were told we could not split checks here. The waitress was pretty gruff. She sort of just plopped things down, spilling coffee unapologetically. Two orders of toast for two people were served on the same plate. Our food was served quickly and was hot- but I don't think anyone felt the food was the best of the week. $13 for an omelette, hashbrowns, and toast is a little steep. It's not the worst place in town, but I have lots of other places to try before I come back.More

They say they’re open till 2 o’clock, but at 1:10 PM I was told the kitchen is already closed because they stop making food by 1:30 and I could not order…

Twice a year we have meetings in Ocean City at a Holiday Inn. We usually have very little time to eat. It’s great that there are so many great food options within walking distance. We love the strong coffee. That they refill often. The great...breakfast. That they bring really, and I mean really quick. The cheap price. Priceless. And scrapple! Forgot the scrapple. So good.More

I have always looked forward to breakfast at General's Kitchen whenever I am in town. I always get the chipped beef. Sometimes if I am really hungry I pair it with an omelette or a couple eggs over easy. I am always happy when I...have a chance to visit and fill my belly here. I actually like the new location better than the old, because it is easier to park and there is more seating.More

We read about this place so we tried it. Very good service, quick! The food was enjoyable but the best part is that the local police also eat here so that is a very good sign. Will be back in December.

We were able to walk to this place from our hotel in Ocean City. Had heard they had good breakfasts. The service was very fast and the food was excellent. Lots of things on the menu to choose from.

One of the first things that you cannot help notice is the memorability on display honoring our first responders - Police, Fire, EMT, etc. I appreciated this as I do not think we honor our first responders enough for what they do. The staff was...very good seating us quickly and bringing the food. I ordered the chipped beef specialty and deemed it good but not great. It was missing that distinct chipped beef flavor and needed a little bit of salt. The coffee was good and my wife's egg and bacon breakfast was OK. Would I eat there again - yes.More

I had breakfast there on September 10, 2019-the cream chipped beef -their signature item - was highly recommended. I ordered it over a home fries with onions which were probably the best part of the meal even though very greasy. For almost $11-there was little...to no beef in the roux. I don’t even think they used butter because there was no salt flavor and no beef flavor and very few flakes of beef strewn across a sea of white flowery paste that covered the plate. The coffee was little more than brown water. On a positive note, the service was prompt and professional, and the “meal” came out quickly. The over easy egg was actually cooked perfect too! I would NEVER recommend a place where their “signature” “homemade” fare was less than substandard. The portion of slop was more than enough for two. Maybe if they cut back on quantity and focused on quality it would be a better experience. I come from a background in food service and cooking and was quite disappointed.More
