Hard to find location but good food. Service is between average and good depending on how busy they are. Pretty normal breakfast menu with good size portions and reasonable prices. Everything was prepared as ordered and good.

I've been here quite a few times. I come every weekend with friends or family and am very rarely disappointed. The staff is friendly, they fix any problems quickly, and the food is amazing. As for being a picky eater, I absolutely love their chicken fried steak, their biscuits and gravy, their soups and the banana/caramel waffles are just great.... More

The first visit was ok, nothing to rave about. The Waffles were good, just good. The coffee was tepid. The second visit was just awful. We must have been in stealth mode because we sat there for well over five minutes and NO SERVICE. One of the waitresses just gave surly stares over her glasses at us. We got up,... More

1/21/2013 Good food, very reasonable prices! Came in for breakfast with granddaughter (11) and I ordered scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, and english muffin... she ordered the kids pancake egg and bacon ($2.95). Of course coffee for me, and hot chocolate for her. Almost all the food was prepared well, bacon was the only thing I could critique, it was... More

A real greasy spoon place. Friendly people but not the cleanest place in the world. However, if you are going for quantity rather than quality this is the place for you.

Prices are good, ambiance is down-home, and the quality of the food is second to none. If you want a real American breakfast that makes you know you're alive, this is the place to do it!

Breakfast special $6.99 with additional nominal charge for biscuits with sausage gravy. Delicious. Had home fries and was enough for two meals. Went with adult daughter, fiancee and husband. All of us were very much satisfied and will return in the future.

I don't know if some of these reviewers went on a bad day or what, but American Host has fantastic breakfasts, the best you'll find in Lompoc and certainly better than an Embassy Suites breakfast! Large portions, excellent taste, good service, there's no better place to have your eggs on the weekend than American Host. I have never had lunch... More
