We finally found where this restaurant was and ate breakfast there both mornings of our stay. The breakfast food was so delicious. I tried the waffle special and although I don't order waffles when dining out, this waffle was terrific! Crispy on the outside,soft on...the inside, topped with fresh berries abnd whipped cream. I totally loved it. The hosts that we came in contact with were both great. Service was quick and we felt well taken care of.. Thank you Gilchrist for a great way to start my day! Will definately eat here again. Maybe we will try lunch next time.More

This was my first time to this back bay waterside restaurant. The place is rustic and the view great which is a nice combination. Most seating is outdoor on a large deck, with one large open dining room available inside. They also have a counter...seat area for 8 people that overlooks the outdoor dining section and bay. During busy times, you must add your name to the Hostess’ waiting list. Our order included coffee ($1.75 w/refills), two eggs scrabbled ($4.95), Blueberry Hot Cakes (3 - $10) and a side of sausage ($3.95). What I Liked: - Sitting in a covered area overlooking the water - The scrambled eggs were excellent, a 10! - The pancakes (8” diameter) were not dry - They serve Heinz ketchup What I Did Not Like: - There was a 25-minute wait for a table for two which meant standing in the direct sun - The “The best you’ve ever had” pancakes had an oily taste to them from the griddle and were very thin, no fluff at all - The sausages were average at best Note that you need to pay inside after you receive the check.More

We went for breakfast on a foggy, damp and cold weekday. There was plenty of seating available. We choose to sit outside on the covered deck as they had the heaters on. Amber out waiter was very sweet. She let us know about their specials...of the day. We choose the specials which were a crab, spinach and cheese omelette and apple/cinnamon flat cakes. All came quickly and was delicious. Would come here again.More

I've been to the Tropicana location three times and while the food was good the service was always terrible. This morning I stopped by the Gardners Basin location after checking out of Hard Rock and my experience was more enjoyable. It wasn't too busy, so...I was seated right away and the server came to the table right away. The food that I ordered was correct and tasty. I will be eating at this location again.More

Get out of the expensive restaurants at the hotels/casinos and go here. Not far from the strip. Maybe a 10 minute ride. Plenty of parking. Indoor and outdoor seating. Prices are reasonable and the food is great. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted really good....Service is quick. The girls working there are super friendly. They all pitch in to take care of the customers. We usually always have breakfast here when visiting AC. Try it and you’ll be back time and time again.More

We just ordered regular coffee, it's really good regular coffee, but it's not flavored or fancy like a starbucks. I'm not sure of the exact brand of coffee they use, if that's what you're asking.
