I went here expecting a really good meal because so many people had told me how good it was. But the food was mediocre. Could have cooked it better myself at home.

This place is in a very old building. Place was busy but seated quickly. Quick and friendly service. Breakfast was great...Not greasy and fast. Quality bacon and breakfast drinks from the bar. All 4 of us said we would go back again.

I love going here! It's a simple place but really good food. Always nice cold beer. My husband and I enjoy going here for our Friday night date night. That way we eat in the bar. Love the hamburger dip and the reuben sandwich! They also have the best homemade potato chips around!!

Meatloaf, just one word! Don't tell my mom but I did go for this item and glad I did. Chipotle style and a big portion. Could not even eat it all. Older place with a neighborhood personality. Had many options on the menu as well. Including breakfast. Give it a try!

Great place. Clean, and pleasant staff. The "homemade" potatoes chips are not as good as 10 years ago. We used to go there to have a drink and eat tons of those amazing chips, but alas.... they have different people cooking. Other foods were very good. We will return!

This is a local secret. Their menu is not your usual standards and have a wide selection of Omelettes and Benedicts. They don't take reservations so if it's Sunday morning come early. The wait staff is friendly and always smiling eager to serve and please. Once you come here you'll know why we keep it a secret. That way we... More

I just had the fajita omelet. Amazeballs!!! The homemade salsa that it comes with NEEDS to be bottled and sold. I used it on my hashbrowns, and even on my wheat toast. Breakfast done right!!!

We love Alfred's for Sunday breakfast. It has a beautiful bar, but plenty of "family" room. The crab omelets are delicious and my personal favorite. Combined with their great mimosas, it is the perfect start to a Sunday. The owner is a friendly guy who puts can put on an apron and serve with the best of them! The servings... More

I'd go again, but I am not in any hurry. Portions were adequate, food was hot, but nothing to write home about.
