What a meal! We had the most delicious brunch here. We waited a little bit to get a seat but boy was it worth it! The portions are HUGE that we each had another meal from what was left.

For the line outside I was expecting slightly better. The line outside can be intimidating but, don't let that scare you off. The food was great! Huge portions and quality food for what you pay for. Try the omelettes or the oatmeal brulee (highly recommended). The down side was the slow service and the unfriendliness of the server.

Had to wait about 45 minutes for a table on a Friday late morning. Our waiter was awesome, fast, and friendly. The breakfast was pretty dang delicious- most of all that habanero sauce!! Wish they sold that sauce in bottles by the door. I don't think I would endure another wait time again there, but I would definitely go back... More

Went for breakfast with the family. We were all happy with what we ordered. The hash browns are excellent, very brown and crispy; the servings are very generous and the food is delicious! The bacon in the omelette comes in thick meaty chunks. We tried 2 kinds of breakfast sandwiches; both were very good and big. Love this place; have... More

Had a fabulous breakfast. My husband loved the coffee. We saw the portion sizes and split corned beef hash with 2 fried eggs and... More

It was busy, but the food was very good. I'd suggest going before noon on a weekday--and they won't seat you unless your entire party is present. Mid-week lunch date was met with an awesome server and awesome breakfast food. I got the Romeo scramble with potatoes. THE HOT SAUCE THEY HAVE THERE. Mm. My friend got biscuits and gravy.... More

My fiancé and I moved right down the street and decided to try Gravy one morning. I ordered an omelet, he ordered the corn need hash. We were both very hungry and didn't finish our dishes. His was better than mine, but still not great. The easiest way to describe the problem with our food is that it just wasn't... More

The biggest plate of salmon hash I've ever had it could have fed 4 people. My husband had the corn beef hash and it was also very good. All the food looked very good. They had some oatmeal dish that looked yummy and I don't like oatmeal but it looked like bread pudding which I love I will try it... More

We always order the french toast since its the best we've ever had. We also ordered the bacato omlet, with cream cheese, tomato and bacon... Needless to say, it was also awesome. Lady next to us ordered oatmeal. It looked like a dessert, but she said it was wgat she always orders. Will return as we aleays do.
