Picked the restaurant based off reviews and was not disappointed. Lunch was great! Just remember, restaurant is cash or local check only.

I've been eating here for 30 years and it never disappoints. It's just a fun place to gather on a weekend morning. There's usually a wait and I love the way Mike yells out your name when your table is ready. There is nothing fancy...More

We go here often for breakfast. It's always good - down home cooking served quickly and with a smile. Only issue is it's always very crowded unless you arrive early.

Despite the 15-minute wait, surprising for the off-season, our food was delicious as always. My husband enjoyed the philly, and I enjoyed the seafood omelet. The service was great and the food came out pretty fast. One thing to note is that they do not...More

We met friends for breakfast and were surprised by the sign that said “No checks or credit cards. ATM next door.” Not surprisingly there was a line at the ATM. Although we had to wait for about 10 minutes to be seated, service was fast...More

Pancakes were good, bacon was crispy, and hash browns were large chunks of fried potatoes. Owner was pleasant, was crowded and service was ok.

We have been out-of-town regulars for over 20 years. The staff at Causeway is great. Being a resort town they get a little turnover, but compared to most beach town, the turnover is tiny. David's staff do well working... More
