Great food and Bloody Marys!

The food and service are very good, and it is great to find a local breakfast restaurant that serves a tasty Bloody Mary! Enjoy going to Awful Annie's.

Good food but extremely LOUD. Be prepared to contend with screaming children, crying babies, and very loud kids. Maybe parents think they can have a little "vacation" while they drop their kids off at the "Awful Annie's Playground." A few times the food was cold. Must constantly be asking for more half-and-half and sugar for the coffee.

I eat here often, when I can get a table. It is the most popular restaurant in Lincoln. Great food, very reasonable prices, WOW service.

Food was cold and service terrible, was given wrong bill and will never go back. Visited one in Auburn as well and it was average at best.

Over the last eight years we have had many excellent breakfasts and lunches in their Lincoln and Folsom locations. They have just opened a new location in Folsom.

I love the fact that they have a bacon testing available and that they have real Maple syrup! Its an old time place not fancy at all but nice.

The menu choices are at the same time innovative and conventional, it is a place that appeals to many different tastes and I feel confident suggesting this spot to anyone. The service is excellent!

The service was certainly friendly, but incredibly slow. There were very few customers there for breakfast when we arrived, but it still took 45 minutes for our orders to arrive, and we had to remind the server that we had requested coffee. Very cute decor and an overly-creative menu couldn't disguise the fact that the food was merely okay, not... More 

Thank Paul F
