Good Food!

My college roommates and I graduated from Notre Dame 20 years ago and we met up recently at the ND vs. Navy game for a mini-reunion weekend. We ate here for breakfast before we went to tailgate. The food was great and filling, and the service was quick. Our waitstaff was pleasant too. Great... read more

I have always heard great things about their breakfast. They did not disappoint at all. The portions are HUGE!! The service was fast even with a larger crowd of 6. The staff was very friendly and was attentive to the needs of all customers. Great place!!

Go to the "Original Pancake House" instead. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews and expected it to be good. Wow, were we disappointed. Food was cold. Silverware dirty. My French toast appeared to be made with Wonder Bread--no joke. I gave it a 2 because the waitress was sweet.

We had a typical breakfast of bacon and eggs. It was good and reasonably priced. They had a military discount.

My family and I decided to have breakfast here on a non- Notre Dame home game and still had a long wait! The food was great, but having to wait almost 30 minutes for it to come out of the kitchen was unacceptable.

Comfortable restaurant with good service and good food. They deliver. Two families met here from different states. Easy to find. Good parking. Nice diverse menu. We met for breakfast and were presented with a good selection. Two of us ordered off the senior menu (55+) Good selections and nice value. I ordered two eggs, bacon, toast and American Fries. Eggs...

The food was really good and they have an awesome menu. Our waitress was quick and we got our food so fast. I can't wait to take my husband here. He will love the food and will love to go to a place that will fill him up.

Breakfast was delicious. Great coffee and free WiFi. Would highly recommend this place. I had a scrambler with well done hash browns. Fruit was served with water that was brought within minutes of being seated.
