The food is always a hit, and good portions for the prices. The service is less than stellar. I have been many times and the service seems to be poor at best when only a couple of tables.

We had a combination of breakfast sandwiches, pancakes and omelet so. Fresh biscuits and huge amount of eggs with cheese were the best. The pancakes were huge and could only eat one(2 to go) and the omelets were 3 eggs and great add ons. Excellent service and atmosphere!

Castaway Grill was only a few blocks from our hotel so we spent a lot of our time there. Their food was really good and for a descent price. If you are a shrimp lover I definitely recommend the coconut shrimp. The staff were really nice and provided excellent service.

Located just before the Intracoastal bridge, this small "greasy spoon" serves great (and big) breakfasts at a great price. Servers are attentive hustlers who work hard to get it right. If you're looking for a great way to fuel up for your day at the beach - stop here! The Thanks

Get the Hugh three omelettes here. The Southern.is filled with bacon, sausage, tomatoes and just wonderful. The cheese is too big and delious for the average adult. The service is slow but friendly. Expect to see you beach friends here at lunch, the sandwiches are great and so are the onion rings.

One of my favorite breakfast places on OIB. Great for simple breakfast - eggs, bacon grits toast. Nothing fancy just good simple food. Have also had chicken slovaki

Breakfast with wife today 4/1. Eggs greasy and wet, same for both of us. Yuk! They need to clean the cooktop more often. Styrofoam plates and cups. Locals here. Coffee just ok. Sorry. We won't be back.

Their specials are really good, as are breakfasts. It's good value for money too, especially on the gyros plates, and Greek salads. The wait staff are all nice warm folks who will do all they can to please.
