Very friendly staff, a true breakfast diner - good coffee, good food, fast service, even a few "darlin's" thrown out in the conversation - perfect! Price is perfect for both food and experience - will be back!

I eat here regularly. It's a great meat and three restaurant. Country cooking and daily specials. I enjoy breakfast and lunch.

On vacation last summer came across this restaurant that looked like it was packed with locals. So assuming that's the place to go, we stopped. Bad idea. Waitress seemed annoyed that we were tourists. We may have taken a little long on our food decision....... Service even slower than expected. Food not good at all,

We ate here once for dinner and once for breakfast during our vacation. For dinner I had the hamburger steak and gravy platter and it was quite good. For breakfast I had a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit and that was also very good. The restaurant is packed for breakfast on Sundays. Good food at a decent price.

We live whole in the wall diners but don't go often because we are health food conscious. However we went for breakfast. Horrible service. Horrible food. Dennys is 20 min away and would recommend the drive versus this place. Won't go back. I understand it's family owned which I love and support normally. Strange thing is that this place was... More

We have breakfast every morning at Batson's when in the Topsail area. Very friendly and attentive staff! If you are looking for a great southern breakfast, this is the place. Their sausage gravy biscuits can NOT be beat!

Nothing fancy, just a good friendly restaurant serving a great breakfast at reasonable prices. I went with pancakes and gravy biscuits. The sausage gravy on the biscuits was plentiful and full of sausage chunks just the way I like it. My wife had the two egg breakfast, scrambled with bacon and toast. As we ate, it was obvious from the... More

Just wanted a good simple breakfast. Ordered scrambled eggs, with no white showing. Scrambled well not well cooked. Must be the hardest request. My friend received eggs so hard they were hard enough to use for mortar. I told the server I wanted soft so she came back and slid 2 scrambled barely cooked eggs across the table. We didn't... More
