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.

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!!

Good food, decent price and served fast. The server was very friendly and engaged in some long conversations with her.

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

Fast service and decent food for the price. Limited menu with mostly breakfast choices. The service was extremely friendly and food arrived quickly.

Small and loud! The food was cold and we had to ask for coffee refills. We were given a small menu, so we thought they did not offer omelets or blueberry waffles, but they did and laughed about it after someone next to us got a larger menu. They said you got the wrong waitress!
