Nice small place with good food. First ever seafood omelet was good. The shrimp and cheesy grits was great. The cajun style gravy helped make the dish. Went there for breakfast and lunch one day, then breakfast the next. Can't wait to go again.

Food was pretty good, but thought it was a bit over priced. Very casual atmosphere with high end prices.

This was a nice find for a late lunch on a Fall weekday. The Seawall beach across the street was quiet and peaceful. As we strolled along the beach, we came across this place. A quiet sleeper that seems to be quite popular in season...More
