Excellent service and good food. Go early or be prepared to stand in line in Sat and Sun during the summer. The wait is worth it for a good meal.

All of the food - and coffee! - is great here, but the homemade hash is the best I've ever had. Well worth the wait, esp. As the wait goes fast.

Always stop for breakfast at Grumpy's when I am on the Cape. Fantastic choice of breakfast options, great service and the take away bakery options are all delicious. You are missing a popular local treat if you don't go here, but go early as it can get very busy. Good for seating groups of 6 to 8 as we sometime... More

Grumpy's catered a work event. The spread was excellent and food tasted great. We are all looking forward to the next time we can order from them.

If you are looking for a good, filling, reasonably priced breakfast, Grumpy's is for you. There is nothing fancy here, just a good hearty breakfast. Don't mind the line, the turn around inside is quick. It is worth the short wait.

Did I say amazing? Absolutely! Fabulous food. Like an old time diner. Most plates are $8.99. To think you can get a scrumptious meal for that. Amazing!

Grumpy's is always on our list for a breakfast visit when we come to the Cape. Open 6-2, you can always pop in for lunch as well, but it is their generous breakfast portions that keep us coming back year after year. It will be our last stop on our way back to Boston this morning but certainly not the... More

I hate to wait in line, so we check in, drive down to get Dunkin coffee come back and by then are usually seated. Best breakfast and home made muffins. I know breakfast is not a big deal but they do it five star. Nice family outing.

This is a must try place if you find yourself in Dennis, MA. There is usually a wait for a table but don't leave! Wait! You will not regret it! Wait staff are friendly and efficient! Food comes out quickly! Really anything we have eaten there has been great! Eggs, pancakes, hash.....it is all good!

After reading some of the reviews about Grumpy's we decided to check out the place for ourselves on our vacation. We learned mistake #1 is not to go on a weekend; after seeing a line out the door and not a single parking place to be had, with 2 very hungry kids in tow we decided to come back another... More
