I think the main attraction of this place is the buffet. I get it. However, I ordered a simple breakfast and they managed to screw it up. Badly. I ordered scrambled eggs, english muffin and grits. Grits were wayyyy too salty, the eggs were runny...More

Freshly prepared waffle, pancakes or French toast if you eat off the buffet. The buffet eggs were - ugh- buffet eggs. The grits and cinnamon rolls were good. Coffee was mediocre.

The breakfast buffet and the location can't be beat. The Bluberry waffles were very satisfying and the variety was quite impressive.

This is a local secret. The menus has a good selection of dishes. The crab cakes are wonderful. This restaurant has a good breakfast, including a buffet, and an excellent lunch menu. Service is very efficient.

Little place in the original waterfront downtown, almost always packed..nothing fancy but good food and cozy place the locals visit. Our group enjoyed everything from patty melts, to fried chicken salads...Quick and comfort food.

After a recommendation that brunch here was a must, we made it one of our ventures. The atmosphere is friendly, the portions large, but the food....disappointingly bland. The sausage had no flavor. The eggs had no flavor, how do eggs over easy have NO flavor?...More
