Cold waffles

Was staying at hotel across the street and headed here for breakfast. Unfortunately the temperature in the restaurant was too low and our waffles came out to us cold (butter wouldn't even melt). Servers were friendly but not impressed with the food.

My T-bone steak and eggs and grilled chicken is the best at the waffle house. The staff at night was very customer friendly and service was excellent.

Terrible place to eat. It's dirty and very loud. The personal in the kitchen are throwing with plates and pans. You can eat from the floor so much food is laying there. Coffee is terrible

We ate at the waffle house 7/25 for breakfast. The place is unbelievably dirty!! Broken dishes under th kitchen counter, food partials on the walls, sticky floor. Just gross!! They need to close for a weekend and clean that place!! Plus one of the waitresses took food of a patrons plate with her bare hands. DIRTY!!

A typical Waffle House. Good breakfast and service. Either you like Waffle House or you don't. I don't eat at them often because I don't live near one. But I'll stop in when I have a chance.

Atmosphere a bit loud and food not the most 'healthy' but tastes good and inexpensive. Waiters/waitresses/cooks are cheerful and seem to enjoy working there!

We ate at Waffle House after staying in a nearby hotel. Our food was good and our waitress was nice, but the restaurant was dirty. The floor was sticky and visibly dirty. The kitchen floor area was dirty as well, with trash that had fallen and had not been picked up. I understand that it has a diner atmosphere and... More
