I have only been at this restaurant for breakfast which is very good and well priced. It's a good bargain and the service is usually good. On a Saturday or Sunday morning there are always lines. Very consistent.

We enjoyed breakfast here. Despite a brisk business, our food and service was good. They were trying out a new system where they took your orders while you waited for seating and that seemed to work out well.

We have been here twice for breakfast/brunch. Very friendly and welcoming staff and excellent food. The last time we both had a daily special, and it was great. Good portions, lots of coffee and a spot we will definitely return to.

First Watch has at least two locations in the area that I am aware of - one on Colonial next to the Olive Garden, near the Bell Tower and this one, both in small strip malls. The restaurant is not noisy, but it is almost always busy. This location has a small room in the front where if seated, is... More

First Watch has always been the place to go for friendly, fast and efficient service but this was not the case on my last visit. The server never introduced himself, and was impatient when we were not ready to order when he came to the table. My favorite dish here has always been the Eggs Bendict Florentine. Today it was...

We recently went to First Watch intending to have lunch. However, the breakfast items were so enticing that half our party ordered breakfast foods. We all really enjoyed the meals including muffins, "egg crepes" with fresh fruit, oatmeal with cinnamon, apples and bananas, chocolate chip pancakes and crispy fresh salads. Our out of town guests and we locals were all... More
