First watch has always been and continues to be mediocre. Although there is a following of souls to whom atmosphere and pallet are not priorities when dining, this plain Jane-hohum eating establishment does nothing to either stimulate the pallet nor create an atmosphere unique to "Aunt Dot's" kitchen table. I get it. The price is right. The food is basic.... More

The food is around twice the cost as opposed to the momma and papa breakfast and lunch restaurants. The service is ok but you feel like you are being rushed so the next customer can get a seat. I will stick to the family owned small breakfast and lunch place where you get the feeling like you are part of... More

Pot roast hash was delicious! Really nice twist on the original. Waffle was great too, light and fluffy with the right amount of outside crisp. Cobb salad is a winner too. Friendly, fast service. Would definitely come back.

Everything about this restaurant said "Hello" to me from the first person who greeted me when I entered to my lovely server and finally the cashier who offered directions and local information. I loved the really healthy food using the most modern recipes such as I have seen and read in the Dr. Oz magazine. I have often wanted to... More

Four adults & two teens out for lunch on a Saturday. Really everyone was very happy! We had an attentive efficient waitress. They serve breakfast along with a wide range of sandwiches, salads & soups until they close at 3. Delicious granola banana pancake. Very nice turkey sandwich with a side of tomato basil soup. Two of us had the... More

When I first walked in place was packed but since I needed a table for 1 got seated right away. Within 30 seconds I was greeted with a hot pot of coffee and a warm smile...ordered pot roast hash with eggs sunny side up...food and service was great 👍

Fantastic Service, Will make anything for you. My favorite Caps, Etc is no longer on the menu but they still make it for me. They will make eggs, etc just the way you like it. Great endless cup of coffee, too.

I'm a regular at First Watch and since I know all the servers, it's very comfortable for me to dine here alone. They've recently upgraded their menu and everything I've tried is good. But honestly, I go for the basics... eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc.
