This humble looking restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed perfectly cooked crab legs with unexpectedly delicious side dishes. The sautéed spinach was among the best I've had anywhere, and the mac n' cheese was homemade and full of flavor. There is convenient parking for the restaurant right across the street.

I've been here twice now and had a great experience both times. They happily accommodate kids (crayons are provided) and they're double mimosas make for happy adults! Brunch is fantastic - has eggs, waffles, etc - along with lighter options like a veggie panini. Staff is friendly and quick. Definitely will go here again when I'm in town.

We went here for years and it had gone downhill. We decided to revisit it and we're pleased. The atmosphere was not as unique but the food was great, especially the bowls.

I'd say this is hangover food and it's certainly a dive. Parking is across the street which seems to have a vibrant towing industry here so beware of Earl. Good breakfast food. Has a few beers on draft. Cheeseburger burrito is good. Chicken and waffles was humongous.

We ventured to King Neptune's tonight on a recommendation.When we first walked in we almost turned back. The décor is shabby but the wait staff overcame it. The menu was well worn but the food was great. We had 4 different dinners and 4 different drinks. My wife actually had a good glass of wine for $1.00.....I had the stuffed... More
