Came in for a night cap & indulged in some flaming coffees..... Absolutely amazing! Service was terrific & the show put on by the waiter whilst preparing the coffees was brilliant entertainment!

Stayed at a nearby hotel that doesn't serve breakfast, so enjoyed the reasonably-priced but very elaborate buffet breakfast at the 1661 Inn. There is anything and everything you could possibly want to eat, both sweet and savory, and complimentary bubbly and Mimosas. Plus, eggs cooked...More

What a way to start your day! Don't miss the brunch at 1661. The food is great and you can't beat the scenery. We enjoyed meeting other visitors while our two young sons played on the lawn and swing set.

Great place to have breakfast, or dinner, the dining room overlooks the Atlantic. 1661, is close to downtown, so is easily walkable, if you decide to drive, there is ample parking.More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable brunch here. Champagne brunch for $21.95 is a pretty good value on the island or anywhere. Champagne and mimosas are included. Eggs and omelets are made to order in the kitchen and then brought out to the...More

A buffet is not always easy to pull off, and breakfast food is even more difficult. However, I was very impressed with the breakfast buffet at the 1661. The ocean view itself was worth the trip. We were immediately seated upon arrival and served a...More

Memorial Day through Columbus Day the 1661 Inn serves its renowned full champagne buffet breakfast each morning. The breakfast buffet features an omelet station, homemade corned beef hash, eggs, pancakes or french toast and a whole lot more! During the quieter seasons, a smaller version of our buffet is available as well. For the 2016 summer season, we will be introducing a small appetizer menu, desserts and flaming coffees at the new 1661 bar starting at 5:00pm.
