I can't understand why this place gets good reviews. IT USED TO BE GOOD, but my past 3 visits over 4 years have been awful. People might like it because it is the only place in miles, has a large seating capacity and eclectic menu....More

I think they have the best breakfast in the area. There is plenty of seating, service is timely and the food is delicious. Muffins are the largest I've ever seen and they are soooo good! Just don't go at peak times, right after church, and...More

Grumpy's is a not-so-hidden gen on the Cape. Staff is friendly and the food is really good with generous portions. The place is relatively small, so lines trend to form after 8 am for breakfast, so waiting 45 minutes for a table is not unusual....More

Enjoyed a well cooked breakfast at the counter. Freshly baked muffins and homemade corned beef hash. Service was pleasant and fast! Can recommend. Was a bit of a line to get in, but they are obviously used to managing it as it moved quickly.

I'm sure the breakfasts are good, sadly we went for lunch. Perhaps we hit it on a bad day. I think the place was named after our server, and our food was generally disappointing, not quite as good as that.

Tasty breakfast in Dennis but beware the long lines during the summer months. Trick is to get there early. Family friendly cape-cod style diner.

We stop in for breakfast at least once during our vacation on the Cape. There are always busy so go early to get seated right away (they open at 6am, we are usually in before 7am with no problems). Great fish cakes and linguica benny's!

If you don't wake up at the crack of dawn, then you should expect a long wait. The food is average here, and you should always expect a wait to get in

It's where the locals go and everyone else who's visiting north Cape Cod. Its breakfasts are so good and your coffee cup is always filled up. The choice of food is unbelievable. The service is the best I've found anywhere, fast, friendly, totally committed to...More
