We love going to Mr Busbys, especially for breakfast to have their Johnny cakes. They have a pretty nice happy hour as well. Right on the beach with awesome views. Grey is an outstanding server, we look forward to seeing him on every visit.

Busby's Chicken Rotisserie is a little blue shack, in the parking lot of Mr Busby's/Daniel's. It's run by a sweet lady who has a tiny menu of Rotisserie chicken, rice, potato salad and chicken sandwich. It is the yummiest homemade food and is such a...More
