Great place for breakfast or lunch

My wife and I eat at Knotty Pine regularly. There is a very large portion of their business that is from repeat customers, which says something. The downside is they are a little out of the way and parking is difficult. On weekends, you can park in the E&B lot next door, but not during the... read more

Been here a few times, but it had been a while. This last time, the food was nowhere near as good as it was before. The flavor was BLAND, and the gravy had no flavor to even call it bland- it was like wallpaper paste. Very disappointing. The service was not so great, considering that my empty coffee cup sat...

Sorry to all of my customers who may have questions of where I've gone..PLEASE dont think I've left on my own terms...working hard, following rules, and having hospitality is obviously not enough to keep a job anymore :( A warning, writeup, or a good reason would have been the right thing to do ..but I guess I did not "deserve"...

A local favorite for good reason. Breakfast is very good no matter what you choose, but the California omelet is my favorite. The hash browns with bacon and cheese are delicious! For lunch the burgers are good and so is the chicken salad. Service is always friendly.

Great selection for you taste. Breakfast is really good with many choices. Huge menu depending on what you feel like. Omlets are really awesome. Lunch is very good too. Many sandwich choices , watch for the daily special. Service is pretty much top drawer - good attention paid by the friendly wait staff. Get there early for a seat -... More

We ordered the chile verde omelette and the chicken fried steak and shares some of each. The portions were huge. Everything was delicious. The service was friendly and fast. This place was packed and it's easy to see... More

Great home cooked meals. Get there early or they will run out. They serve breakfast all day and have generous portions for the price. Don't go unless you are hungry!

I went with some out of town friends for breakfast here. I had never been before. I had a veggie omelet, they had eggs benedict and an omelet too. The food was cooked to order and tasted good. I wished they had an egg white option for the omelet. I was very disappointed by the fresh fruit cup. We are... More

Plenty of good places to eat breakfast in Bakersfield, but always end up coming here. Get here early and miss the crowd. Portions are big, waitresses are friendly, and your coffee cup is always full. The "skillets" are fantastic. Been here many times and never been disappointed.
