Went to Glenn's again for breakfast with the family. Still excellent food and service and reasonably priced. Very popular and can get busy, so get there early on weekends. Serves a buffet breakfast on the weekends that is pretty good. Recommended.More

We both had the turkey pie which was very good. I had the flapper pie not as good as Moms but very good. My husband enjoyed his strawberry Sunday.

To be fair we go to Glen's quite often. Great breakfast especially outstanding eggs at a reasonable price. Of particular interest is the broad selection of teas and the tea cookies themselves. You will not be disappointed!!!More

Have never had a bad meal at Glenn's, the service is excellent the wait staff are helpful & efficient- I don't know why anyone would give this restaurant a bad review!
Is there any other meal item for supper from 5 to 8 pm you could recommend? Have you tried the veal cutlet? Are the seniors menu items interesting? Are you willing to try new items at in a higher price range? We appreciate your review and recommendations. Our email is on our website if you have any concerns or comments. Thank you for your cooperation and concern. We are a locally operated restaurant and are willing to accept new ideas!

Although we have been there numerous times for Brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it, we haven't been there yet for lunch or dinner. However based on previous reviews, we will make a point of it in the near future.
Thank You ! for taking time to review our restaurant. We are pleased you enjoyed our food and service. The information customers provide us helps us improve our food and service. Our servers and cooks are happy to serve you our all day breakfast and invite you back again for our lunch and suppers items. We serve beer and wine with our evening meals to better serve our guests who walk over from the Hampton Inn. We also have a gift shop next door to shop in from 9AM to 6PM daily. We hope you have a pleasant journey and come back soon! Is there anything we could do more of to meet your expectations?
