I have been eating at this restaurant for several years when we make our yearly visit to Hilton head island. The food is exceptional and wait staff is friendly. Can be crowded but worth the wait!!@

Went here for breakfast...all tables were taken so we sat at the counter. Lots of action to watch! Can see the cooks make the food - we both had omelettes and they were super. Very friendly staff...will definitely be back!

The Marriott Grand Ocean concierge recommended this place for breakfast. I am so glad that he did, as we decided to eat here every morning during our vacation. The menu was so different from where we live. They have great specials everyday. The staff are...More

I don't think so specifically, but virtually everything they have works for kids -- like pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc -- and the food and setting is great. I have often taken young children here.
