Typical Greek restaurant with lots of affordable choices. Servers are pleasant and efficient. Place is bright and clean. Wonderful selection of homemade. Breakfasts are good but nothing special

I have been to this restaurant twice in the last month, both times meeting up with friends. Each time the restaurant was pretty much empty. Each time the waitress was constantly pushing us to order and then when we were done she was pushing us to leave. I could understand if the restaurant was full they need to move the... More

We come here often. The employees are friendly and we can count on a good meal. They are also a bakery and the desserts are delicious.

We've never had a bad meal at Around The Clock. I prefer a nice coffee shop to a fancy restaurant if the food and service are good and Around The Clock has both. My favorite meals are Steve's omelette for breakfast and a great prime rib for dinner.

This is not a terrific restaurant, despite the friendly staff. It has a large menu and you can order breakfast at any time of the day, but the food is just mediocre, or perhaps one could say a step above fast food. With so many other restaurants in the area, definitely skip this one.

We love eating here for breakfast. Most of the time the food is really good. However, when its not so good...its realy not so good. Breakfasts for the most part are on the mark. This is not a burger place! The salad bar is small but always fresh looking. This is your typical diner type food place. It's always crowded... More

It was rather cool last week and a Hot Turkey Sandwich sounded good. Around the Clocks is among the best. Real roasted turkey, NOT that nasty deli-sliced stuff some places try to give you. It came on white bread and mashed taters -- smothered in graVY. jUST THE WAY IT SHOULD be. Big portions of turkey too. I wish the... More

We live nearby so we eat here often. Not gourmet food but good family style food with good service. Breakfast any time of day. My wife always has their French onion soup which is excellent!
