Came here on recommendation from the front desk at our hotel. It was awesome! The baked apples are to die for! Decent price...we'll be back tomorrow!

Looking for a place to have breakfast in the area, GPS first led us to a non-existent IHOP. Fortunately we then found this place, although it was a bit out of the way for us. Good food, fast service, and the kids really enjoyed their pancakes. They certainly don't skimp on portions!

Glad we stumbled on this great restaurant. Very friendly staff and amazing food. If you like omelets, you have to give this place a try.... they bake them!! It was soooo delicious. Think I have found a new regular breakfast spot.

I've passed by Bickfords many times without stopping so opted to visit as I was in the area recently on a Sunday morning. Not sure how it does during the rest of the day but it is very popular for breakfast. As I was on my ownI was able to get a seat at the bar area immediately. All tables... More

We were seated quickly. Restaurant was clean and service was prompt but not overly friendly. Food arrived quickly and was of good quality. The onlydownside was that they were out of the homemade oatmeal that I really like.

We used to eat at Bickford's when our kids lived in the area but hadn't been here for 5-6 years. Finding ourselves in the neighborhood, we decided to stop in. It was Saturday morning and the place was packed with locals-- always a good sign. But the waitstaff had everything under control. We ordered breakfast standards, waffles for my wife... More

Bickford's has always been a consistently busy and good place for breakfast. My family and I have been coming here for years. Staff are really nice and attentive. The menu is extensive and the prices are reasonable. The baked apple pancake is sooo good and the pancakes are really good. You cannot miss with the egg dishes. Have not tried... More

Broiled to perfection haddock, scallops and salmon; best Pot Roast dinner around and freshly made, hand-cut onion rings are just a few selections available other than their everyday fresh eggs, omelets and fluffy pan cakes. Best hours are before 7 pm and best nights are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Fridays is Irish music night and a little lound for our... More

We go there often on a Friday when there is Irish music and entertainment. The food is homemade and always good. Waitstaff is friendly - atmosphere is like a busy, neighborhood bar. Beer and wine only, but they've recently added some good craft beers. We're always happy we went.
