Poor service, didn’t even keep my coffee warm. And the place was empty, so it wasn’t as though they were overwhelmed with customers. Food on the buffet was cold and over cooked.

Overpriced, bland food. Never got offered any water or drink besides my one cup of coffee. Had a hair in my grits. Overpriced food that wasn’t worth it. Save yourself the money & headache and avoid this place.

We had an amazing birthday breakfast at the Sunrise Cafe. The food was delicious and the presentation superb. The wide variety of food choices made it easy for each person to get exactly what they wanted which made the price well worth it. Every person from the hostess to our server to the omelet chef went out of the way to wish our birthday girl a happy birthday. The head chef brought out a special treat and wished her a happy day as well. It was perfect and we will go back soon.

Thanksgiving lunch was fantastic. Sometimes you go to these things thinking after it’s all over that it wasn’t worth how much you spent, but not with this one. It was excellent 👍🏻

Third time we have had the Saturday brunch, but the grits and scrambled eggs were served cold. There has to be a better way to keep the food warm. Great variety of food. Disappointed in the hot served food.

Best brunch that I have ever had. Such a wide array of offerings. The quiche was incredible. Ms. Donny's omelet was the best - more than that her warmth and kindness were amazing. The service was terrific - Leighton was our waiter, and he was fantastic, friendly, attentive, and informative. It can get a little hot out on the deck.

It was me and my twin’s birthday, the waitress was so friendly and instantly made us feel special with fun beverages and a birthday desert! We had no idea the wait staff would sing for our birthday and it was a fun surprise! Sunrise Cafe will always be an enjoyable memory of our birthday. I would highly recommend Sunrise, beautiful view of the ocean while having a delicious meal.

My mom and I stopped in to have a late breakfast on our way home from Savannah. The restaurant was beautiful and so was the view! We sat at a table overlooking the ocean. Breakfast was delicious and so were the bottomless mimosas. Our waitress, Camoya, was sweet and accommodating. The whole experience was great and I will definitely be back!

I fell in love with Mrs. Donnie, the Omelet Cook. Everything you ever wanted in a breakfast. Donuts and glazed banana dish specially prepared by the chef for our occasion was a wonderful surprise. Outstanding service. Perfect ambiance. Perfect seating for watching God's sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean!

We went for breakfast and although it was beautiful, the blinds are only for looks. They are not functional. Therefore, with the sun in our eyes, we had to eat breakfast with sunglasses on. In addition, the food was good but the pricing was a little ridiculous. I've had better food and paid way less. It was disappointing.

This restaurant is not pet friendly. Made a reservation stating we would need an outdoor pet friendly table for a 10lb Shih Tzu and when we arrived, we were told service pets only. They went ahead and acted like they were going to seat us (got us menus and checked us in) and then again said service pets only. We were wondering if they thought we were going to check our dog in somewhere like luggage. We drove there from 15 minutes away. I told him we would not be dining there without our dog who would just be lying in the bottom of our stroller. He said the restaurant is an extension of Omni. I take it that the Omni resort is not pet friendly. Unfortunate, we will not be staying at the Omni or dine at any of its restaurants.

Sunday Brunch was a treat at Sunrise Cafe. It has a very welcoming feel and if you sit outside it has a great view of the beach. This restaurant is located inside the main building of the Conference Center, but has a beautiful setting very open and airy. The selection on the menu or going through the buffet are plentiful. We chose the buffet and weren't disappointed. I had an omelet with shrimp, jalapeños and lots of veggies, this was a yummy omelet as you could taste everything in it, not to eggy. The display of the buffet was very eye pleasing and so many choices you certainly won't leave hungry. I could have breakfast everyday at the Sunrise with the food and the views!

This was our 4th time for brunch - and maybe our last. Was not busy enough to keep hot/fresh food on the buffet. Outdoor dining was closed - not sure why. That's the reason we go - for the great outdoor view. Server was terrible - not attentive at all, didn't want to explain the fact you could also order menu items if getting the buffet, not too friendly - makes the experience more about herself than the guests. I'll never understand how that is acceptable service???

When done right this place is great, it's just too hit and miss. Servers need to be better. Manager did a good job handling a bad experience.

The Sunrise Cafe at the Omni is the best place to get breakfast or brunch! They have an amazing buffet with homemade and locally inspired dishes. Many of the selections, such as the eggs and waffles, are made to order. Plus, this restaurant overlooks the water, and the staff is always accommodating. I would recommend!

Eggs made to order were perfect. Coffee was terrible. Raspberry jam was great. Potatoes were terrible - over cooked and dry. Appear to have been from a frozen bad. Sausage was very good. Bacon was so tough it was not edible. The setting was beautiful. I wanted to order a mimosa, but the waiter rarely checked with our table to see if we needed anything. He was nice, but I think he just had too many tables to handle. He was the only waiter in the entire restaurant who was well groomed and properly dressed. Most of the wait staff were slovenly dressed and not well groomed at all. Very surprising for a nice resort. I have never been to a resort where the staff looked so disheveled. The fruit was just ok. This place was a real disappointment. I would never go back.

We made this reservation and had eaten here several years ago. What we did not know was that we were making a reservation for a Mother's Day Brunch. It was the only option on the menu and extremely expensive for lunch. The food was fantastic, just not what we anticipated. We would preferred to be told this was the case.

First time at Sunrise Cafe for Mother's Day. I thought at first that it was rather pricey but ,this undoubtedly this best breakfast buffet ever. There was a raw bar with oysters, tuna and scallops along with huge peeled shrimp that were out of this world. They had all the breakfast selections along with prime rib, salad, cheeses etc.. As busy as it was the servers were all excellent. There was some nice soft live music as well. The desserts were heaven. Everything about the place exceeded my expectations. We will be going back!

I had booked this location in advance for a birthday surprise for my husband. I had not realised when I booked that it was also Mother's Day. The brunch was exceptionally good and our waitress, Evaline, was a dream. Very attentive and focused and she made our experience a day to remember even though she did not know it was a special occasion for my husband.
This was not our first time at this restaurant and the ambience and food was up to the usual standard that we have experienced on previous occasions.

Lovely way to start the day! The buffet has everything and if that's not sufficient, they'll make it for you! My son had eggs Benedict made to order and brought to our table outdoors overlooking the ocean. You cannot leave hungry. There are many types of food- homemade granola and breads, fruit galore. So nice. Special.
