We love to visit the Calabash area and usually eat at one of the seafood restaurants. However, since neither of us was in the mood for seafood, and since there always seems to be a crowd at this restaurant we decided to give it a try. It was close to the 3:00pm closing, but the wait staff was friendly and... More

The food was great but as we walked in there was a strong smell of urine. We had the breakfast buffett. Once you get past the bathroom, it was ok

Been here in the past, but have eaten there the last 3 days due to a power outage in our neighborhood (Tropical Storm Matthew!!). The service is great, wait staff and hostess are so nice! Okay, the Spinach/Tomato/Feta Cheese omelet: if it were any bigger, I would explode!! Absolutely delicious. I've tried the veggie omelet as well; very nice! Tasty... More

It was clean and friendly, buffet wasn't ready until 7am. Everyone that had pancakes loved them. I had scrambled eggs that were very greasy

I saw the menu for Sunny Side Up at a different restaurant and spotted the tuna melt sandwich. Since I'm always looking for a tuna melt or Reuben I had to give it a try. It was delicious and the deluxe came with a cup of soup( chicken noodle) and fries that I upgraded to onion rings for just a... More

We love this place for breakfast. If you choose the buffet - very, very good food with custom cooked eggs included - it is very quick. For a good solid breakfast on a busy day, you cannot beat this place. They have another shop in Little River, SC that is just as good. Come on in, the food, service and... More

So glad my hunger pangs kicked in when they did. We were leaving Hunter Army Airfield head to North Carolina. We had missed breakfast on base. We lucked upon Sunny Side Up Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Diner. It looked quaint but was well run. The food was exceptional and the service was especially great. So glad we got in when we... More
