While staying at Old Forge over the Labor Day weekend, our party of 4 decided to have breakfast at The Muffin Patch one morning. We were seated quickly enough, and after 5 mins or so, the waitress came with menus and took beverage orders--she returned 10 mins later with our coffee/juice, and took our breakfast orders. That's when it really... More

It is a quaint small town diner like place, we had breakfast which was delicious. My husband had the meat lovers omelette which he enjoyed. They make fresh muffins all day and I also heard them take orders for pies upon request. Staff is friendly and efficient.

First, there was a sign to wait to be seated but the person at the door waved a hand and said, "Go and find a table." So my boys and I found one, which hadn't really been wiped down but okay, a few napkins that I found took care of that problem. We were sitting about 5 minutes before a... More

Where do I start. First we were greeted quickly and got our menus. ... After that. ..... waiting staff didn't know who was waited on, no organization, poorly trained. They were kind enough, but beyond that. ... They seemed used to customers sending food back. If there was a manager present, they didn't care to stop by and answer for... More

We should have known better when we saw the "Under New Management" banner hanging from the front of the building. The staff seemed nice and friendly enough, but the service was terribly slow and the food not so good. It was a Friday morning when we stopped in and there weren't many patrons inside. Kind of surprised it was so... More

We were there August 16, 2014 for breakfast. There were 6 of us 5daults and 1-4yr old. The pancakes were tasty. The Lumberjack breakfast burrito was tasty. The French toast was yummy. The home fries were not. The bill already had the gratuity added to the bill, which took away our option to tip what we felt the server deserved.... More

This is great place for breakfast if you're staying overnight in Old Forge. It has the usual menu...nothing spectacular, just good old home-cooked meals. The cost is reasonable, the parking is ample and the staff is cheery and helpful.

Tried this place for breakfast (easy walk from our motel) -- sign says "under new management". Well, I wonder what the old management was like? Don't get me wrong, the people were friendly and very helpful, but the servers are young, unorganized, and inexperienced. My husband ordered a simple breakfast -- scrambled eggs and ham -- and he loved it.... More

I always go to the Muffin Patch when in Old Forge but after my last experience I don't think I want to go back again. I waited almost an hour and a half for breakfast and that was just for cold food. When I've gone there in the past you are in an out with in 45 minutes and food... More

We have previously eaten at Muffin Patch without any issues and that was why my party of six returned. Waiting 30 minutes for our food was the least of our issues. Out of six orders, two were edible. The French toast with strawberries was cold not warm but ice cold and the strawberries were the frozen ones from a bag,... More
