After swimming with the Manatees, I was cold and seriously NEEDED blueberry pancakes. The first place I found on my google maps was Mama Sally's. We were seated promptly and I saw there was blueberry pancakes on the menu!! Absolutely perfect! The service was great and the pancakes were awesome, with huge blueberries and were delicious! It was reasonably priced.... More

Tucked back away from the road in a shopping plaza. Seated quickly. Standard diner menu. Coffee was good. Staff was friendly. Eggs benedict were good. Prices agreeable.

I had been wanting to try Mama Sally's for awhile now. I am sad to say my first visit might be my last. Initial service was quick. Drink and food order was placed and didn't take long. But it fell apart after that. My husband's pancakes were not even warm enough to melt butter. The cheese in my omelette was... More

This is a wonderful place for breakfast - just like home if you ask me. The food is prepared very well and exactly to your specific request and liking. The entire staff is very friendly and attentive including Shelby who seats folks quickly and with a smile and handles coffee, busing and anything you need. Always a pleasure to go... More

The owner actually owned a restaurant in the town I grew up in. Excellent food and the staff is super friendly It is also very inexpensive. My only complaint would be that the osprey nest in the parking lot was abandoned!

Just a diner - but a good one! Too bad they serve eggs benedict on Sundays only. Chicken fried steak and eggs were hot a yummy with crunchy fried potatoes.

Doesn't get better than a mushroom and Swiss cheese omelette, hash browns, sourdough toast and coffee after a morning of swimming with the Manatees! This is a great stop on the way back to Tampa / St. Petersburg.

Good fish platter, good breakfast omelets. Service fast and competent. Choice of vegetables very limited. Ordinary atmosphere geared toward working class and casual diners.

I try to generally give a place a second chance. My wife and I had an item we ordered not delivered with the meal (we had to ask for it) once before. This time the breakfast was delivered cold without the toast. After we waited and waited, it took almost 5 minutes to get someone's attention and it wasn't our... More
