Even if you have to drive over several bridges, this is the place to go for breakfast, brunch, or lunch!! Everyone who goes there with me raves about whatever they eat. Especially popular are the softshell crab eggs benedict and the crabcake eggs benedict. YUMMMMMM.

i have seen a customer inside in a wheelchair, but I don't know how they entered so I can't advise the best way to do that. I would suggest calling them to ask about it. The number is (804) 435-0405
