Wouldn't go back to eat there

The staff was very entertaining but there were service issues, not to mention the hair I found in my friend's food and the lipstick stained coffee mug and plain ol' stained utensil.... But we finished our food.

It was a lot of food when I stopped at the Waffle House in Dover, DE for breakfast. I ordered the special that included waffle, eggs, smothered potatoes, sausage and raisin bread toast. It was a lot of food and it was good. The waitress kept filling my coffee cup and gave great service.

A waffle house is a waffle house. prices are good. food is so-so. they are never very clean, the rest rooms should be checked more often.

A nice change from the traditional Belgium waffle. Smothered potatoes, fried eggs perfectly cooked, raisin bread and apple butter make this a great breakfast stop 24 hours a day. GREAT COFFEE too! In the mood for a burger- they have that also. Want to chat with the cook...it's o.k. he's right behind the counter and prepares your meal in full... More

For yrs people have talked about how good the Waffle House is and frankly I didn't miss anything. The silverware is not rolled up in your napkin. We had the "pleasure" of getting one crumbled napkin each and each fork, knife, and spoon manuelly placed on the napkin. The tables were sticky and dirty. Its mostly ran by loud irritating... More

We moved from the window because of too many flies,but it didn't matter because this waffle house was infested by them. Then sitting there waiting for my apple juice, I turn around and the lady is squeezing the juice out of... More

My visit didn't last long after I saw the coffee pots. They looked like they only had water rinsed in them for months! The glass part of the pot was so brown made my stomach turn. Left!

We have stopped in Waffle House restaurants a couple of times in the past while driving cross-country and desperate, never with a good experience. We had to wait for a prescription to be filled and decided to have breakfast, we were near and for some reason (masochism?) decided to try out Dover's Waffle House. The place was fairly dirty (not...
