Breakfast in the cafe this morning was excellent! You really should try it. But what impressed me the most was the service. Hats off to Jessica. She kept cool, friendly, and showed real hussle. And thank you Bailey for stepping up and helping out. These ladies are what customer service is all about. Definitely going back.

Amazing food and the patrons are as nice as they can be! So I definitely recommend. I did have some issues with service...couldnt get silverware, ran out of drinks, feeling rushed to leave with an early check, etc. but service can change visit to visit so I am sure it’s usually awesome.

The Surf has improved within the last few months with the new management. We went there last Saturday. The food was much better! The drink specials are very reasonable and the staff really worked hard to provide great service. We will come back!
