Maybe it was being on the water, but felt a little sick after eating this for breakfast (don't typically get seasick but greasy potatoes & a rocking boat left our tummies regretting breakfast).

Food was decent. Went with my family and not everyone loved what they got but it honestly wasn't bad until we started feeling less than great (again, could have been fishing related too). Biscuits were clearly a bit old and reeeeeal dry. We didn't go back, but if you're in a pinch and looking for a sit down breakfast that opens early, the wooden spoon ain't too bad. Would recommend avoiding the biscuits and the greasy breakfast potatoes.

Super busy but you'd never be able to tell as their teamwork is ON POINT. They all communicate/help each other to get it DONE! :) The food was absolutely phenomenal... I had the omelet, however, everything looked amazing! Amazing staff, customer service, etc! I'll definitely be back! And, it's REALLY cool to eat at the bar area and watch the chef/cook at work! He NAILED IT! :)

After reading good reviews tried this first morning of family trip but only 2 of us actually got up early enough for breakfast *LOL*
Both got coffee, omelettes, home fries and biscuit. Home fries were tasty and seasoned nicely. Omelette was okay-nothing special. Biscuit was big and dry… tasted like a quick mix like bisquick - def not homemade and not edible.
Only one server on at the time (7am) and tables with lots of fellas got the lion share of her attention.
Total tab was $29 which seems high compared to others in the area.

Unfriendly service and mediocre food. The waitress was more interested in flirting with all the men than providing quality service. The food was ok - omelette was standard, the home fries were the highlight of the breakfast. We visited because of the great reviews but were so disappointed with the food and service.
