We went here for breakfast on our last day of an OI vacation. I ordered a Baby Bear breakfast and husband got a waffle. My egg & sausage was good but the pancake was so cold the butter I put on it wouldn’t even soften!...More

This place has been around for years and when I ate there 25 years ago it was much better than now. Building needs updating badly and also the food isn't good

Noon breakfast on our way off the island. Quick service. Delicious country ham and fluffy biscuit! Cubed potato hashbrowns were awesome. Toast with white gravy was just right.

This place gets really busy, which is usually a good sign. We went for breakfast and were not disappointed. Great home comfort food! Grits, bacon, eggs, and especially corned beef hash! And you cannot beat the price for the amount of good food you get....More

Food is good but 2 hrs for breakfast food is ridiculous and I wish we had not waited so long! 1 hr wait than 1 hr at table waiting on food! Be aware!!

Went there for breakfast as it is close to the condo we rented. Was very busy but we were seated after a short wait. The pancakes were fluffy and warm, and the grits and the biscuit were delicious. Highly recommend for breakfast.
