Ordered the shrimp and the pancakes. Shrimp we great, pancakes were out of this world!!! Stop what you're doing and order the pancakes.

Best breakfast ever! My husband had the shrimp omelet which was flavorful and came with a big fluffy biscuit and home fries. He cleaned his plate and helped me finish my food as well--he rarely eats like this. I got the pancake breakfast with the...More

This place hands down is the best place to eat, and it's apparent by the amount of people who wait to get a seat! Everything is made fresh and to order and is delicious. Cash only, so hit the ATM first.

Found this palce by chance. The food is great and home styled. There is a salad bar for the salad eater. Specials are usually fresh caught seafood. Great breakfast.
