ordered Irish Benedict and homemade hash. hash was very good, eggs were cooked hard, sauce was a cheese sauce, not Hollandaise. portions were hugh. large portions don't make up for poorly prepared food. Would not go back.

Lou Roc’s offers an amazing breakfast assortment! There’s so much to pick from along with daily specials. The environment is reminiscent of the old time diners where people meet. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
