I always take my Dad out for a special breakfast for his birthday. (He's 89 this year!) We have a go to place that's a national chain. However it's loud and crowded and a 45 minute drive. So... We came here about 9:00 am. Quiet, not particularly crowded, but we weren't the only ones there either. We were seated quickly... More

Very casual atmosphere, kind of a small town feel. Seating is quick early, a little longer wait as the morning goes. fresh food, huge omelettes, full platter of pancakes. Servers very attentive.

We forgot how big the portions were on the specialty pancakes and ordered an apple pancake an omelette with pancakes and side bacon for two people. Next time we will split the apple pancake and order two eggs and bacon on the side. We had food for at least 2 meals.

Ordered eggs with sausage patties and pecan pancakes. Pancakes were good but the sausage was terrible! It was greatly overcooked and hard as a rock. I could not finish them. Service is with a smile from overworked servers. 45 minutes waiting while seeing empty tables. Doesn't seem to be much coordination between the staff. Long waits for drinks refills and... More

We met friends and family here for breakfast on the day after Thanksgiving. The place was packed, but the early birds among us managed to secure a table for 8. The service was not overly quick, but did not take an unreasonable amount of time and everyone was happy with choices. I had the Dutch Baby Pancake and it was... More

Was here with a group for a breakfast "party" for a friend. Had reserved some tables so they were ready for us. The wait staff was very efficient and the food actually came out faster than expected, especially since it was a large group. The servings are extremely large, too much I thought for what a person should eat at... More

We went in on a Sunday morning, had a short wait. Service was prompt and friendly. The food - Dutch Baby, and Meat Lover skillet - was tasty and well prepared. Portions were generous. We will go again.

You will be happy to being your family and friends here any time! Plus- fresh squeezed OJ and good coffee. It is a win win for everyone (even those who don't want... More
