Not as it used to be - prices up and service down - disappointed - food was good but not great - atmosphere and assistance lacking - do not expect to return

Had a breakfast there. Eggs, great bacon, hash browns and a biscuit (I'd have preferred toast, but I wasn't going to pay extra for it!). Lots of coffee. Friendly service. I have eaten there in previous years as well, so I am a return customer.

Drove by many times, finally the other day we stopped for their daily fish and chip special, it was great, locally family owned and operated. Will for sure go back again, next time I am on the coast.

Went for breakfast and had a Benedict. Very good. Eggs were done right and the sauce was good. Wait staff were friendly and service was attentive.

This place is always busy whenever we go; which is about 4x a year. Popular place for families. Menu & atmosphere is similar to an Elmer's or Denny's - large selection on Menu, but noisy. Service depends on waitress and how busy the place is....More

Not overly busy when we stopped, but took like forever to get service. We both had a full breakfast and found it good, but nothing that stood out. As I have said in many reviews, at the beach it's sometimes hard to consistently find "consistency"😄!...More

I'm sure they do! I work at a restaurant in Portland, OR and we ALWAYS have something that we can put together for gluten free customers. Just ask specifically for what you need and they should be able to provide it for... More
