Our guest house recommended this place for breakfast and it was correct., Good wholesome breakfast in a little old fashioned cafe. Nice place and good staff. Reasonable too!

We have been staying over at the America's Best Value Motel and have eaten here every moring - between 6 and 7 am. Great value - 4 rashers of bacon (often we get 2 elsewhere). Choice of homefries or grits. Great coffee. Great service. Great value. Cannot fault this place.

Great place for a great breakfast, open early so you can eat before you go fishing. Prices are very reasonable and the portions are big. Would definitely recommend it.

This place is a small non-descript diner in downtown Port Clinton. We were lucky enough to get a seat as soon as we got there but by the time we left people were waiting outside to get in.

Only had breakfast here - eggs over done - sausage was a great quantity for the money but it had no flavor!

Fast service, HUGE portions of no-frills, good cooking. We like this type of restaurant for breakfast. There are lots of regular customers, but many tourists because of great reviews. I indulged in 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy and should have ordered 1/4 order because I couldn't finish it. Husband had a waffle with a side of bacon (no less... More

We were looking for a place to get a good home cooked breakfast and the place we were staying at. Our Guest Inn and Suites recommended trying this place. It isn't a fancy place, but it was bust when we got there and busy when we left and the food was great. The people/servers were very friendly. We will go... More
