Great Breakfast Spot

Classic breakfasts (but avoid the Huevos Rancheros). Plenty of seating, great service, and plenty of food. Simple, basic, generous. And, how can you pass up a place called Grandpa's?

We have really tried to like this place; but it is just not going to happen. We have eaten at the old and new locations and have been sadly disappointed. Service is slow and the quality of food is poor. How can you mess up a hamburger? But it happened. We took the whole family there for Friday night fish... More

I am so sorry about your experience at my restaurant. The fish usually runs out once a month around 7 pm. Occasionally it runs out early around 3pm, like twice a year. I order it based on the previous 4 weeks. It comes in fresh the day before and has to be served by Sunday. So ordering is a little... More

Love to do Sunday morning brunch here! Grandpa's has the best breakfasts around and serve a full menu which is also outstanding. Amazing bloody mary's!

We had just over half an hour to order, eat and run to an appt. Restaurant clean and waitress greeted us right away. We were on our way in plenty of time. I had cheeseburger without bun (gluten free) which was very tasty and juicy. Option of side salad instead of fries etc is always a nice touch. My companion's... More

Thank you so much for your review. Just want to mention we have a gluten free menu which includes gluten free bread for your burger. Also makes your choices much easier. Thanks again for your review More

Not fancy or upscale but really great family food. We live in town and eat there regularly. All week nights have a special for $5.99. Like I said "not fancy" but good. Waitresses are friendly and attentive and prices are great.

It was a very busy weekend morning. We ordered eggs and pancakes. Service was very friendly and I really liked the hashbrowns. I ordered eggs over easy and they seemed totally raw and the pancakes were okay.

They have catfish on Friday, but my favorite is still the burgers or chicken fried steak. Breakfast is also good with biscuits and gravy.

The overall effect left me nauseous , the table and dishes were dirty, the waitress coughed repeatedly rarely covering her mouth...food was mediocre at best...the restroom was more offensive than any truck stop , I have ever experienced... this place should be monitored VERY CLOSELY...DISGUSTING..

This is probably my favorite breakfast in town. Grandpa's has been around forever, so both my husband and I have our favorites on the breakfast menu which hasn't changed much over the years. The new location is a much better space, though service can often be a little on the slow side. Prices have gone up a bit with the... More
