A long standing hem that has no frills about it. Straight forward food with a view. Will return every time we are in the area. A must and does not disappoint

Am older restaurant, but right on the bay, Gilchrist Restaurant is a perfect place to start your day. A wide range of breakfast items, the blueberry pancakes are a specialty. They were perfect. A cup of coffee and maple syrup. A perfect start to my...day.More

With an amazing view right at the marina giving you a cool breeze to enjoy your meal while there this is a great spot to dine. The pancakes were great and I can see why so many people rave about how this place has the...best around. The bacon was nice and crispy, scrambled eggs cooked perfect, and the potatoes were delicious. Highly recommend a visit here when in the area.More

Staff was somewhat friendly but could not get anyone's attention to refill coffee.Home fries are not diner home fries, they are breakfast potatoes. Tasty, but not what I was expecting. Had to send part of the order back because it was undercooked.

We come here every time we are in AC. Their blueberry pancakes are light and simply delicious. The omelettes are excellent as well. Their food is consistent- hence the lines. For added relaxation, we love their location by the marina with the beautiful view. They...are always a must stop when in AC.More

Since discovering this place on a trip to AC a few years ago, I try to make it a point every time I am in town to hit this place. The views are great. The food is cheap and terrific. You can't go wrong... don't...pass it up! Eggs, sausage, pancakes, coffee... everything is spot on!More

Aside from the servers, the lady hostess and gentleman taking your money were maskless the entire time of our visit. I am so thankful we are vaccinated AND wearing a mask. These people who apparently have more of a stake in this business are foolish...and will be partially responsible if we have another shutdown.More

We just ordered regular coffee, it's really good regular coffee, but it's not flavored or fancy like a starbucks. I'm not sure of the exact brand of coffee they use, if that's what you're asking.
