Not as good as it was in previous trips

The muffins are excellent the service at least on this visit was terrible. We were told to sit anywhere. We were not given any menus. Eventually a waitress came over with menus. We told her that we just wanted muffins and coffee. We ordered our muffins weren't even asked if we wanted them... read more

The muffin patch used to be the "it" spot for breakfast in old forge. I was looking forward to going back, but to my surprise a lot had changed and not in a good way. I should have known since the line that used to be out the door no longer existed. It was terrible, borderline inedible. Not to mention... More

This place is virtually the worst restaurant on Earth! I am laughing reading the other reviews. I was hoping they were having an off day. It seems like the staff and manager consistently repeat the same mistakes. When we walked in, there was only one table of three people. The two of us sat down, making a grand total of... More

The muffin patch is home to some very good breakfast food, and very very very good baked goods. DO NOT miss a chance to stop in here. Delicious. Oh and pretty cheap for the amount of food

Cute place, semi ok service. Here's the real thing, I asked for onions in my home fries, didn't happen. No big deal, the kicker is...ordered eggs Benedict and they came out with a disgustingly colored, BROKEN hollandaise. Whoever is in charge of this place, front of house and kitchen, what the hell were you thinking allowing that food to be... More

First we were told to sit where ever we would like which was fine. At this time it wasn't very busy. 10 minutes later a waitress gets our drink order. We ordered our food which took forever to receive and i mean forever. They must have only 1 person in the entire kitchen. We had no silverware. When the waitress... More

I'm finding it difficult to find the words for this review because all I can think of is eww!! I grew up having wonderful memories of going to Old Forge every summer of my childhood; with breakfast at The Muffin Patch being one of our favorite stops. I met my husband quickly after leaving home and he and I have... More
