We visited with our daughter and son-in-law while visiting Holland. We found the value, quality, and service to all be excellent. Our server was flexible in substituting oatmeal as a side with my husband's order instead of toast or pancakes and she kept our coffee and ice water fresh. The olive burger and HBO (hash brown omelet) were delicious according... More

The club sandwitch was a lot bigger tahn I expected and was amazing. It was packed full of tuckey and bacon. The Pecan Roll for dessert was worth the trip. It had to be at least 5 inches wide and melted in my mouth.

This place has been there literally forever... Food is very consistent through the years. Getting old and grungy but Waite Staff is always pleasant and helpful. Connected is an antique shop where up until 1995 or so you could actually watch them carve wooden shoes.

When ever we visit Holland, we try to have breakfast at the Wooden Shoe Restaurant. There service is always excellent and the prices are very reasonable. We discovered they make a large sized cinnamon roll with vanilla icing that is INCREDIBLE. We usually order one and share it among 3 or 4 of us. Plus if you order toast with... More

Best blueberry pancakes ever! Waitresses always cheerful, great selection of breakfast items, good portions. Loved the American fries - perfectly crisp. Went there twice this trip and will return next time we are up this way.

Cinnamon pecan roll is huge plenty for two big eaters. Very tasty. Breakfast eggs well cooked, fruit bowl high quality. Liked the pancakes too. Check out yesteryear in the massive antique market adjacent. Many memories, hard to find items and some bargains too.

We go to this restaurant twice a week for breakfast with at least 12 people and always have very good service and good food.

Perhaps their breakfast is of higher quality, but lunch leaves a lot to be desired. The food was obviously just Gordons/Sysco food that had been warmed up (not homemade).

I will eat here again. The service is good. The food is good. I generally prefer eating out at a place where the taste isn't fully replicable at home. This food is easily replicable. No (or minimal) distinctly different or unique flavors in the multiple times I've eaten here. That said, it's a safe bet and you get great portions,... More
