We love to have breakfast here and do so frequently. The servers are all like family and they make everyone feel at home. You want the best cup of coffee in Southport? Look no further. It is a beautiful cuppa smooooooth. Prices are very inexpensive. Always a nice start to the day.

There is a nice selection on the menu and they offer all you can eat grouper bits for only $15.95 which could be good for dinner. We were there for lunch and the clam strips were not very good. The service was good but it did feel very hot in there, but sure if they have air conditioning or not. It does look like a nice place to listen to a band on their outside porch when the weather is cooler.

We arrived Sunday, August11th, around dinner time and saw one other truck in front, no OPEN sign but ventured up anyway and the waitress explained that they were experimenting that night with dinner hours. We sat out back on the patio with smiling (new) SUE as our waitress who took our drink order and served us some HOT hushpuppies. The menu offered 2 pieces of pan-seared crab stuffed grouper topped with lobster sauce as one of three prep choices for $16.95 and I had a vision of the final product in my head BUT that's not what showed up on the plate. The small casserole/baking dish arrived with white fish over a tablespoon of bread stuffing and lobster sauce? on top with fresh scallions for effect. The baked sweet potato was hard so, I asked for another but the salad was fresh. The mushroom-swiss burger was a double but over cooked with HOT homemade chips! The waitresses were explaining about the fresh fish but they didn't know what pan seared meant and were not sure of the cooking options yet tried to convince us to stop again? Different shifts = different cooks = inconsistency!!!

This is a great little place to have breakfast. We've had the Western omelette, French toast, and pancakes - all were excellent.

If you have diner, try the deviled crab sandwich - it is really one of the best that I have had.

Right now they are closed Mondays and only serve diner Friday through Sunday so you may want to call before going.

We went for breakfast on Sunday morning. It took us about 40 minutes to get our food. It was an adequate breakfast, good value but leave plenty of time.
