Excellent food and great service. A bit noisy and the open hours are not long enough. Usually very crowded on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Sometimes the wait is much too long.

Crispy Waffle II has a large menu for breakfast and lunch. The eggs are fresh. The soup can be good, but the choices are limited. Last time I was there, they had navy bean or cream of asparagus. The turkey sandwich and egg salad sandwiches are good. It's a great place to meet friends for breakfast or lunch.

My cousin and I came here on a Saturday afternoon for lunch, but we both ordered breakfast food. We arrived at noon and only waited for a few minutes to be seated. We were impressed and overwhelmed by the lengthy menu containing such a variety of options from which to choose. We both enjoyed our meals: pancakes, eggs, hash browns,... More

Too many rules...The place was empty and they wouldn't seat my friend until I got there, won't let you substitute items on the menu (annoying if you have allergies), and dump the bill on you right away so they don't come back. Ugh

We frequent almost every Sunday. Even though busy we usually have a short wait time. The restaurant is clean and has a very friendly waitstaff. Food is always hot and they have the best coffee! Prices are good. Extensive menu. I have eaten here with my family at least 300 times and haven't had a bad experience yet. Well run... More

Breakfast is hot and tasty. Portions are large, Almost everyone has a take home container after eating. Service is fast and friendly, just what I like. Weekdays it takes no time to get a table, but very busy after 9 am on the weekends. The only downside is the noise as the ceilings are open and it gets very loud... More

Went here on a Saturday morning for breakfast and were seated after a short 5-minute wait. Weekends here are very busy here, especially around 9am. Server came quickly, as did our food. By the time we left (10am), the line was nearly out the door of people waiting to be seated. Good food and service.

Come later in the morning and you'll wait for a table. But that's usually a sign of a good restaurant, and it holds true for Crispy Waffle II. Good selection of breakfast items. Nice, friendly service.
