We went there for Sunday lunch and dinner and waited about 5 minutes outside on a bench. The interior is a little shabby but has charm. The service was good, food was great. Barbecue and philly cheese steak sandwiches were very good. They serve breakfast at all hours so I ordered the two-egg breakfast with biscuit, bacon and grits -... More

Tried the seafood omelet and was amazed. Paired up with spectacular grits and you have an excellent ocean combo.

What can I say but the name says it all .....( GET THE GRITS ). Had The shrimp and grits for breakfast it was worth the wait. And the wait was only 15 minutes at 8:30 in the morning on a Sunday. They get you in and out and give you plenty of food

Excellent hot breakfast. The biscuits were amazing, huge and flakey. One of our group had chipped beef and we were all jealous! He said it was excellent. Portions are huge, service was quick and friendly.
