I gave this restaurant a great review a few years ago, but it just wasn't up to that standard this visit. My eggs Benedict and my husband's crab omelet were good, but the accompanying potatoes were not. My husband's hash browns were mushy and they and my country fries had an odd charred taste. Breakfast for 2 with coffee was... More

Had been here in past years and decided that this was the place to have a good breakfast before heading out. Nothing fancy, just a clean and welcoming place at the end of a strip mall with lots of free parking. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and seem genuinely happy to see you. There are many options on... More

Never even knew this place existed! As others have stated, the exterior is very plain so I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Clean, bright, and comfortable, tables not too close together. Our server was prompt, friendly and efficient, and the food was good. Our party of four ordered sandwiches, soup, and omelettes, and everyone was happy with... More

I read the reviews and cannot understand how anyone can consider this restaurant anything but terrific. The food was healthy and tasty. The vegetable omelette had fresh ingredients and the oatmeal was to die for. The service was exceptional. The prices were reasonable. The server was more than ready to substitute items on the menu and customize to our taste.... More

This is a diner type setting. It is quaint, but very loud. The menu had a lot of options. The chips seem to be homemade and were very good. We waited quite a bit of time before we had our drinks or our food. Food was good but most seemed greasy. A bit overpriced.

VERY CLEAN!! Food is well prepared and comes out hot, price are very reasonable. Service is excellent and friendly. Been coming her for 2 or 3 months and drive 10-15 miles to get here even though there are places closer. The owners are there most of the time. GIVE IT A TRY!

Great place to have breakfast or a quick lunch with friends. Reasonably priced menu makes it a good choice for budget minded people. Good selections. Average food.

George's is one of my youngest (12 y/o) son's favorite places for brunch. They have a reasonably broad menu, and their prices are fairly good. However, they get absolutely *slammed* with traffic on Sunday mornings, due to the combination of their size and the fact that they are conveniently close to a number of area churches. (Adding to this is... More

As part of a strip mall, this restaurant has a very generic exterior. But the lunch we had was anything but generic. The meatloaf on my husband's open-faced sandwich was homemade and smothered with grilled peppers, onions, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese. My reuben was served on mild rye bread, and the thousand island dressing served on the side tasted homemade.... More

The food is just ok but the staff and service is just terrible. We thought maybe we had just hit a bad day but after several visits spaced out over 6 months the service remained terrible, staff inattentive and disinterested and wait for service generally from 10 to 15 minutes after getting water and then between 30 and 45 minutes...
