“Best breakfast in Punta Gorda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Very imaginative menu and it all tastes great. We have been here many times, and we will keep going back. Sometimes the line is out the door for a table, but they move fast...it's worth the wait!

“Very, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Wasn't sure if I'd try this restaurant after reading some bad reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised. Crab cakes eggs benedict were top shelf and the portion was huge. They also served scrapple which made this Philadelphian very happy! Service was very friendly and very quick. Will go back for sure.

“Terrible Service, filthy ladies room.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We have visited before during winter season, the service was terrible, so we thought we would give them another try in off season. This time we visited the first week of July. Both times the service was TERRIBLE! When we visited this time in the off season, not every table was full as before. Still it took FOREVER; for our order to be taken, then another FOREVER for our food to come. My hubby ordered the Corn Beef Hash with his breakfast, he said "It was the worst Corn Beef Hash" he had ever had. Another member of our group had the chili cheese omelet, he also said it was BAD; it tasted like canned chili dumped on an omelet. On top of bad service, the ladies room was filthy. When we were paying our bill at the register, the cashier asked us "how was everything"? My hubby told her, It was the worst Corned Beef Hash he had ever had. She had a standard response, no offer to take it off the bill or anything.

“Sunday after church event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Have been going to John's place since the time he opened it, and it has become a Sunday event, sometimes only the wife and I, but other Sundays it's several with family members.
His food is always great, and served hot, some times it's a bit of a wait to get in, when the snowbirds are here, but the wait is worth it if your looking for great food at a fair price along with good service.
