We ate breakfast here twice. The waitresses were friendly and the service fast. You have to try the shrimp or oyster omelet! The hashbrowns were very good.

My stomach was a little upset so instead of the BBQ I craved, chose the turkey sandwich with fried okra, both were "just right" the okra was a real treat as it's not available where I live in Mexico. It took two tries to finish this complete treat. A real treat. Betty Allen

We went here for lunch during our visit to SGI and we both got 2 meat BBQ plates with ribs. My wife got chicken and I got sausage as our second meats. Both were good, not great.

Great place for breakfast on St. George island. One of the few places that offer breakfast. The waffles were good so were the bacon and eggs. It's hard to go wrong with breakfast.

Friendly staff. We had some nice pancakes and waffles for breakfast which are reasonable priced. Coffee was including many refills. We had to say stop at some point :)
