Good Food, Fair Service

I'm a resident of Gretna and have eaten here many times. The food is good. The servers very often are lacking prompt and courteous service. They often seem to wait just too long to see if someone else will provide the service. We tip 15-20% always. Maybe it's something else.

This is everything a local breakfast and lunch place should be. Service is great. Plain simple breakfast joint priced right. Bacon, Eggs and Coffee. Can't go wrong. This ain't a hoyty toyty breakfast place with $13. omlets. This is the GOTO place for locals that want it simple, fast, hot and fairly priced. I eat here once a week and... More

Common Grounds is a great neighborhood restaurant. Every year after the St. Patrick's parade, my family enjoy dinner here. Some of the best Onion Rings around. Good Fried Seafood. It is really a great place for breakfast.

This place is located near the Jefferson Parish Courthouse in Gretna, across the river from New Orleans. It's pretty easy to find. They serve all the meals here, but it really is a breakfast restaurant and that's what they are good at. Service is fast and friendly and the egg dishes are quite good, though I have noticed soggy bacon... More

The food is definitely mediocre. If you live in old gretna it's just convenient. About the only thing you can't screw up is the bacon egg and cheese sandwich. Coffee & on the expressway runs circles around this place, and you get to eat donuts over there while you wait! Don't waste your time here for anything other than the... More

As a previous diner said, the food is greasy but, hey, this the West Bank of the Mississippi River, right? I had the rueben sandwich and fries which was OK. Service was good. The best thing about this dining experience was the train that came right down the middle of the street right outside the restaurant. I will tick the... More

Great atmosphere for a Family get together. Very open with good view of old Gretna and there is always artwork for sale from local artist on the walls. Parking is always easy too.

I have been here on several occasions. My favorite place on the westbank to have breakfast b/c the service is good and the food is mostly good (hashbrowns were cold and mushy). The atmosphere is very casual and laid back and I like that. It's the kind of place to go for a good time with friends or family. Not... More

Went for Breakfast and was very disappointed! My eggs were swimming in oil, my hash browns were cold and mushy. Will not be back.
