We loved Donald’s! It was always packed, but we sat immediately every time. They have a wide selection of breakfast, brunch and lunch items. They close at 2pm, so no dinner. Definitely give Donald’s your business!

This was a first rate, yet comfortable, dining experience. The service was terrific. The food even better. All 6 people ordered something different & everyone was pleased. Way to go!!

Ate here twice during my vacation. Service was superb. The first breakfast I had the biscuits and sausage gravy. The gravy was homemade. My husband did have the pancakes. I did try them and they were huge and fluffy. This morning I had a cheese...omelet with toast and their homefries. I would definitely make this a place to stop for breakfast.More

We were seated quickly and our service was top notch. Everyone was so nice and we received a complimentary photo of our family. The food was delicious, it was very typical breakfast. There was a lot of variety to choose from and it all came...out great. If you are here and hungry for breakfast foods, and it doesn't need to be fancy, this is great!More

There was a wait to be seated but it didn’t take long, the service was very good but the food was average, nothing special. Sure, I would recommend it.

We ate breakfast here the last two days. Service was excellent, and it looks like the decor was recently upgraded. We had egg and pancake meals, all were very good. It is a pretty big place, so we never felt crowded and we didn't have...to wait, even though it is bike week. Definitely recommend.More

We visited here yesterday after reading the rave reviews. I ordered shrimp and grits and asked the waitress what the sauce was that was added, she didn’t know….,but didn’t offer to ask anyone for us either. Anyhoo the dish was gross, I had one spoon...and it had a sour taste. The pancakes ordered by husband were nothing special, taste like the ones you make out the box at home, his bacon was wimpy, and cheese eggs cold. I also ordered water to drink, my glass was empty before I got my meal and the waitress never offered to refill. Will never visit again.More

Had a family breakfast here while on vacation during spring break. Excellent food, great service and great prices! We went on the later side (10:30ish) on a Thursday and was seated immediately. Highly recommend!!

There are a lot of pancake houses around Myrtle Beach, but this restaurant had great reviews, so we tried it. We were very happy that we did! We had great service, and the food was delicious! My daughter had a chocolate chip waffle, and I...had eggs and pancakes. We would definitely go back!More
