We've been coming here for breakfast for about 20 years and this time we were disappointed. One reason we went here was because of their yummy biscuits but they were not the same recipe. This restaurant used to be open for dinner but for the...More

Really strong breakfast spot. Great service, food is spot on and just what you need to load up before a day at the beach. Something for the entire family. We've primarily viewed it as a breakfast spot, but other meals are good as well.

This placed used to be "the place" to go for breakfast in Ocracoke, and the food still good enough, if basic, but now there are lots of good choices for breakfast. Here is my rub: Ocracoke is an island with very spotty cell service for...More

Thank you for your review and alerting us to this matter. In all honesty, we have never had wifi at the restaurant and just got it this spring. We realize how important it is to our customers and will be providing our password when asked....More

We have visited this restaurant for over 20 years. It is a traditional breakfast spot with great omelets, hot cakes and biscuits. Portions are large and service is perfect. We look forward to seeing the same faces each year.

Best place for breakfast. Good variety on the menu. Plenty to eat and price wasn't bad. Service was fast and staff very nice.

We started out our first morning with a great breakfast. The pony potatoes are the bomb, and of course the rest of our meal was great too. Service was excellent and full of hospitality.

We all had a wonderful breakfast. The eggs everyone had were cooked perfectly. Since they are so busy you can always expect a wait but it's worth it.

Here's your breakfast spot, earlier is better on the crowd size, regular down home breakfast fare, consistent as can be. Good value, good service...Henry ( English muffin sand) staple, pancakes always good, fresh fruit as well...

This breakfast outing was a first for us. For somebody who rarely eat breakfast as I can not tolerate much in the morning, I was really impressed. Great food and light... nice and friendly staff. If only we had a place like it in Greensboro!

I am almost 100% certain they are open year round. I used to work, from time-to-time, with the school there in the winter months and I ate there quite often. If you want to make sure, call them (252) 928-5701 and ask. You... More
