Baldies is a great place for casual dining for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We come here often. Home cooking and plenty of it for everyone. The location is convenient for us -- close by in the neighborhood! I love the omelets, and the French dip, but they have some great recipes for pasta and all kinds of meat. The servers... More

When I was visiting family, my sister took me to this restaurant for lunch. This was my first time eating here. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the prices were surprisingly very reasonable. The staff was very friendly even though it was during the lunchtime rush. It is definitely worth eating here.

When you want to sit down and have a nice dinner this is the place to visit. I ordered pork chops, baked potato, asparagus, and tapioca pudding. Everything was cooked to perfection. This restaurant was clean, service prompt and friendly.

The food got here fast and it was fantastic. The atmosphere is great and it felt like a true American diner.

I'm not sure how we missed this place for so many years, but I'm delighted we found it. We've returned three times in two months. On a Sunday morning there is likely to be a wait, but the food is well worth it. We love the French toast, the omelettes and Joe's special. We'll have to go back many times... More

We recently went on a very strict 1000 calorie a day diet. One of our last meals was at Baldies. The food is always delicious. It has a wonderful diner atmosphere if you like diner atmosphere which we do. Unfortunately we probably will not be eating there much more because calories after all are little measurements that tell how good... More
