We stopped in for breakfast. The food was good but pricey. Even with the discount voucher, it was the most expensive breakfast we had in our entire trip.

Small family restaurant, 5min drive to the castel and seals area. Large portions, various dishes which you can combo, nice and quick service, low prices, what do we need more?! Discount for hotel guests, just ask for the coupon while check in.

Received discount coupons from our motel and glad we did. The food is not bad but the place is a little overpriced for what you get but it is close by. Probably a better breakfast spot.

Stayed at Silver Surf next door who gave us vouchers for discount. Good choice on the menu for all ages. My chicken masala (not an Indian curry) was excellent. Can't remember everyone's choices but we all enjoyed various meals in the evening and different selections...More

This place doesn't really look nice at all, but service is good, the burger menu relatively extensive, and the four different burgers we had, abc, blu cheese, patty melt and bbq, were all very tasty. Plus for the chilled beer glasses. Recommended

The restaurant was a big surprise. It didn't look as if we should expect much, but the food is really delicious. We ate dinner there at night, and breakfast the next morning. I ordered strawberry pancakes, and I am attaching a picture.

It's a cute little place to eat but I think it was a little pricey for the food you get. The food is good though and loved the fact it was right beside our hotel.

Restaurant was clean and Staff seated us right away. Food tasted great and the portions were very large. The staff was very polite and gave us a discount for staying at Days Inn right behind restaurant. Over all a great experience.
