Commander is a great, old-fashioned type family restaurant. Their breakfasts and lunches are excellent, not over-priced, and come with various sides.

Always good food and service. Great variety and offers take out also. Nothing fancy, just food you’d make at home.

For me, it's hard to believe that I first came to the Commander Restaurant just after they opened about 30 years ago. Time does fly, but good breakfasts are always remembered. We ordered the French toast with a side of ham and a patty melt....More

I went to Commander late on Sunday morning for breakfast. My friend had a taste for the lemon rice soup so we went for a late breakfast and were able to have the soup as a side with our breakfast. My Commander omelette was fantastic...More
