Food is good and large portions. We had a great breakfast before going to Sea World and didn't get hungry until later in our visit there. Only complaint is high prices, but you could eat a big breakfast and skip lunch.

If you like cold food including cold eggs this is absolutely the place to come. Both of our eggs were cold. Bacon was cold greasy and not cooked. Guys there are lots of other places in the area. You can bypass this one.
