First, I would highly recommend using Nowait to make a reservation and keep from having such a long wait. We really enjoyed the Louisiana Omelet with Cheese Grits, The Peacemaker was also an excellent Benedict. The best by far was the Banana Fosters French Toast....More

We ate here for brunch based on a friends recommendation while we were in town. Without a doubt the food was good, but I don't think that the 100+ minute wait was worth it at all! I would have rather spent more time exploring the...More

Hi christopheremerick. We are glad that you enjoyed the food and sticking out the wait. If you are able to join us again, use the Nowait app or Yelp to check in online before you come, it can really help cut down on the wait....More

Wonderful food and breakfast place. It is pricerier, but portions are large. The bacon is great and splendid variety of eggs Benedict. Coffee/alcoholic drink was not worth price, but food defintely was. Wish we could have gone back.

I’ve had breakfast at the Ruby Slipper twice & it’s truly an experience of fine food. The seafood entrees are fresh & decadent! Coffee is awesome. Biscuits are as big as Texas! Enjoy!

If you want some really good food, come here. Btw the best bloody Mary on the coast. Great service (we always sit at the bar) and great atmosphere. Better get there early bc this place stays packed.
