You Gotta Go!

My first time here. I had Slacker Especial omelet made with egg whites. This contained black beans, cheddar cheese, corn chips, topped with sour cream, salsa and avocado slices. My husband had the Veggie Rumble omelet, with egg whites and lots of veggies and mushrooms. We shared a gingerbread... read more

Great atmosphere and service, one of our favorite brunch restaurants! My favorite dish is the red flannel hash, drizzle a little hot sauce on and its perfection!

http://www.theflytrapferndale.com/The_Fly_Trap/daily_buzz.php Great little place. It's worth the wait. It's unique, right down to the salt/pepper shakers that are different on every small table. The Salmon burger is awesome and so is the Lemongrss Faux Bowl. Really, very small, quaint, unique and great little unusual dishes. The price point was reasonable. The staff was good, personable but busy so don't expect... More

Beware! I visited (and reviewed) The Fly Trap in January. Food and service were good, if the wait was a bit long. Now comes March, and a small "point of sale" charge appears on my bank balance from The Fly Trap. Haven't been back since January. There's a thief somewhere. Still recommend you eat here; just pay cash.

Stopped into this eatery the other day and had a little wait which appeared to be the norm. They have a fun way to put your name on the wait list, it's a large roll of paper hanging on the wall that is self service, you write your name and party size on it with a magic marker, and they... More

Upon my arrival the restaurant was busy. There is no signage about seating or an actual host or hostess... There is a roll of paper on the wall, with a pen, that you write your name on. As I was standing with my party near the bar a server says "you can't stand there" as she walks past. She doesn't... More

Diner with a twist. Everything I tried was good, and my friends liked their food. Our service was good, and it was pretty crowded.

I've yet to have a poor experience here. Generous portions, interesting combos, tasty, friendly, easy service. Make sure to have the jam-of-the-day - always good. And now they have a bit of bar service - very good Bloody Mary.

They expanded this place, due to its popularity, perhaps that may be its downfall. Oh well. Great breakfast food , but the wait to get served and actually have your meal is almost crazy (perhaps they go foraging after the order?) and some of the wait staff have that trendier-than-thou thing going on. Maybe they should get ridiculed or something--... More

I spell "flavour" that way because I live in Canada. Anyway, I just adore this place. Service is good, there are so many unique flavour combinations on the menu, the decor is funky, and the music fits perfectly with all of it. My partner and I shared crab cakes appetizer. Yum. We both had the house red. I then had... More
