Yes, we did. We drove all the way from Florida to Georgia just for Waffle House's 60th anniversary. It was hokey but it was worth it. We showed up early and they were still setting up. NO ONE ELSE WAS AROUND. I had visualized a long line but there were no other patrons but us to be seen, less than... More

I have passed this cute little place several times over last 7 years--it is like a museum for what a Waffle House used to look like but it is never open

It is seldom open. In fact, without an appointment, I don't think I have ever seen it open. That is all I need to say, but it would not let me submit a review so terse.

They don't open this museum very often but it is nice preservation effort on the part of the corporation to maintain and improve this little piece of land. It only takes minutes to go through and I when I visited there is no entrance fee - just a suggested donation. Who doesn't like the waffle house? I love the "Welcome... More

We actually went last year for my birthday and brought my sister from out of town. We had a blast. It has been beautifully restored. They are only open a couple of times a year. One might be able to set up an appointment. They give coupons at the end of the visit.

As far as I know, the museum is only open one Saturday a month, so check their web site for schedule. You cannot eat here, but you can walk around and feel like you've stepped back in time. Lots of memorabilia and history. We took lots of photos and enjoyed our visit quite a lot.

This small museum with irregular hours is the site of the original Waffle House restaurant. There's really not a lot to it, a replica of the original counter and grill and a small kitchen area in the back. In a equally small building next door is a collection of waffle house historic items including a collection of Waffle House records... More

Have visited the museum a few times. May be biased, as one of the co-founders of Waffle House grew up in my house down the street. Amazing that they prepared all the food fresh in such a small space. Always go when it's open for tours and wear my 'I heart Waffle House' pin with pride.
