Great Barbque shrimp and grits and enchiladas rancheros. The customer service was tops. They worked together as a team. Truly some of the best service we have had.

Ate lunch here. Located in an unassuming strip shopping mall location at a crossroads on Johns Island. Had the rising club sandwich which was hearty. Ran out of fries so had the cole slaw as my side. Rough chopped slaw that was mediocre. My wife had the chicken wrap that she said was very good and full of chicken. Her... More

Sorry we ran out of fries. That is something that we take pride in (keeping our product stocked). Please try us again so we can earn that 5 star rating. More

The BEST breakfast on Johns Island SC. This tiny hole in the wall is fantastic. Located at the corner of Maybank Hwy. and Main Rd.... Don't let the outside of the restaurant deter you....Walk through the door and be blown away.

Incredible food! Outstanding service. Smiles everywhere. I'm from Iowa so I went with the Specials on the chalk board. Chorizo Shrimp and Grits Saturday morning. Was so impressed we went back Sunday morning and I was excited to see Chicken and Waffles on the board. Only one issue, you may have to wait for a table. Obviously the locals love... More

Had a fantastic breakfast here this morning. The Farmer's Omelet sounded good (eggs, ham, peppers, mushrooms, Pepper jack cheese and potatoes) and when it was delivered my thought was," I'll never be able to eat all that." Wrong...not a crumb left. It may have been the best ever. This place has a cool vibe, partly because of the friendly, laid... More

Sunrise Bistro is consistently good and I love it's casual, laid back feel. The staff is always friendly and helpful too. I've only had their breakfast and I must say their tomato melt is the way to go! If you didn't know it, they make their own bagels and they are so good! Add a fried egg and/or bacon to... More

When you see the outside you question yourself as to why you are stopping here. It is mostly locals who know where to go. Breakfast and lunch are wonderful. Food is served hot and the service is timely and friendly. Fresh homemade bread, large cookies, omelets and salads are served daily.

Primarily a breakfast place, they server breakfast all day. The menu also offers pizza and sandwiches for lunch I have only eaten breakfast here but I am sure the rest of their food is good also. I can only recommend for breakfast but it is the best place that I found on John;s island for breakfast.

Since opening in 2009, Sunrise has been satisfying hungry passers-by with simple, comforting food made with care and without pretension - like mom might make. There are favorites for breakfast (until 11:30 a.M.) Like french toast, enchiladas rancheros, homemade bagels, open-faced omelets, and breakfast pizzas. If you find yourself near this corner of Johns Island, stop in - you'll leave well-fed.
