Their buffet is all fresh foods, well prepared. Everything from grits, to waffles, to ham, bacon, and eggs. Fresh biscuits, pancakes and more! Yummy!
I eat here frequently and enjoy the waffles with fresh blueberries on the side. Their actual menu is pretty extensive. You have to try it, you will be well satisfied.
Their servers are super!

We've been here many times and are satisfied with our choices each time. Overall, it's decent food with an exceptionally great wait staff. The owners are friendly and care about their customers.

Why only a 4 rating? The bathrooms need to be renovated, and I hope the owners will seriously consider this aspect of their restaurant.

Do you want a breakfast buffet with plenty of options? Come here. They cook your eggs according to your preference, and then you hit the buffet full of various meats, sides, and fruit.

They also have plenty of fun specials, such as pumpkin pancakes.

This is one of our fav breakfast spots in the area.

This place is conveniently located for folks in and around Calabash. It's a good value. There weren't many surprises here.

My companions ordered pancakes and omelettes while I had the buffet. It was nice to be able to have a few choices of fruit along with the standard breakfast buffet fare. The biscuits stood out - they were delicious.

Ate breakfast at the sunny side up diner. Buffet was well stocked and had all the usual foods associated with a breakfast buffet on it except eggs. This buffet lets you order eggs from the grill any way you want them. Nice touch. Food was good and service was fine. Nice clean place that is typical of a beach type place to eat. Buffet was $9.99 each.
