The seating can be problematic, in that their sign says to take any clean table, which we did back in the corner. The problem is that as busy as they were we went unnoticed for about 15 mins. It wasn't a big problem for us and we could have easy flagged someone down but were we're enjoying the conversation with... More

There is nothing fancy here, but the food is good and made from scratch. Fast, friendly service and they now take credit cards. Always a good breakfast stop!

Always tough to find a full breakfast restaurant on the beach with free parking. This fit the bill for our family as we needed a morning out for breakfast. The food was decent and the service a little spotty especially the coffee refills. Easy to park in this little shopping center which is always good on FMY beach.

This restaurant has been around for a Long Time. The food is always the same. I like to get the MESS for breakfast, it has everything in it all mixed up! Mitzi the waitress is a local and always friendly. Their fish sandwich is big and the burgers are good.

Been going here 20 years. I think it may be the same staff. lol. Huge portions of pancakes. Great eggs plates complete with all the extras. Always busy on weekends.

Fairly predictable breakfast menu, but everything was prepared fresh and was tasty. Good pancakes, and fresh biscuits which can be covered in sausage gravy or creamed chipped beef (which was very good).

Coffee was good, food was hot and fresh. The usual breakfast fare that you would expect from a Mom and Pop pancake house. Nothing outstanding about the place, but the food is good, served hot and fresh, and the value is good. Can be busy at times, but the crowd moves through fairly quickly and your wait shouldn't be long,... More

This was not our first choice, but due to some road construction it's the only place we could find for breakfast with parking. Food was terrible. We got a bacon egg and cheese sandwich (awful), banana nut pancakes (fair), sausage and home fries. Food was cheap. But you pay for what you get. Our waitress was very nice. 👎🏼

Went today for breakfast. They have a great variety of breakfast and lunches. We had eggs with home fries and toast. Their pancakes are special.
