My husband and I eat breakfast at the Longhouse every Saturday. Our meals have been consistently good. The wait staff is always welcoming and efficient. The building itself could use a few updates. I guess you could say it has a very retro look.... Get there early on the weekends or you will be waiting to get seated.

The Longhouse is a Gilroy Original. I have no idea how long it has been in existence, but I've been here for 37 years, and I'm sure it predated me by at least another 37 years. Yes, it's long and narrow, hence the name. There is the bar end, which is really sort of a dive bar and the restaurant... More

Had the worst breakfast . Here's the story. We stopped to have breakfast before shopping .. When we walked in we had to wait to be seated. Once we were seated we had the worst waitress ever. We were served the worst tasting coffee and I guess it was a blessing that we only got one cup. I ordered pancakes... More

If you are REALLY hungry and you close your eyes you may be okay. I was in this place 25 years ago and a damp rag has not visited the inside of the restaurant in all those years. Hand written signs on the walls warning the night crew not to show up late, what you do with the coke machine,... More

On our way back from Oakland after dropping friends at the airport we were just getting out of town and were going to stop for breakfast. I didn't want the usual fast food so we took a look around for something. The restaurant looked clean from the outside so I said we should take a chance. I was so glad.... More

My wife and I are regulars for breakfast at the Longhouse because of the great breakfast menu, the ample portions, the value for the money, the quality of the food and the terrific service, even on the busiest of days. This really is a down-home, traditional diner in which the servers and cooks seem to work together so well, that... More

We went for a late breakfast and while you really can't screw up breakfast, ours was delicious, hot and plentiful. Chicken fried steak and eggs delicious. Get it with the biscuits and gravy. Service was the best I have had in a diner in a long long time. Big local crowd. Can't go wrong for the price! bon Appetite!
