Great with children!

I took my three grandchildren to Waffle House for breakfast and they were so good with them. Them went out of their way to be helpful with the children. The hot chocolate is too hot for children.

Our Garmin couldn't find Spudnut donuts, so we backtracked to the Waffle House. My husband said his pecan waffle was pretty good - my cheesey eggs were OK. Servers were quite friendly. Since it's kind of a diner style atmosphere you can see all the folks there seemed to be happy and welcoming.

I was keeping my three grandchildren and we went to Waffle House for breakfast. We sat in the booth for several minutes before we were ever acknowledged and when our order was finally taken, we received it in bits and pieces. The service was really terrible and the staff seemed more interested in talking with each other than waiting on... More

One of the best Waffle House service (Lee) ever. Food was great too. Staff welcomed you as you walk thru the door. Food came out fast as well.

Stopped in here with my husband and son. It was lunchtime so we were very hungry. The server was very friendly and answered all questions very courteously. The food came rather quickly too. I normally leave a 20%-25% tip for real good service but since these employees seemed to go above and beyond I went to thirty. Just want you'll... More

I have to say first of all that the wait staff are very friendly here! The food though, even though it was served hot and coffee refills were abundant was not really good. I got a ham and cheese omelet. It had large clumps of cheese inside and was quite tasteless.

Stopped here with the family one night while heading to Busch Gardens Christmas Town. Upon walking in it has the typical greasy feel and smell all Waffle Houses have, of course. The staff behind the counter all just gave us a grim blank stare, no greeting or smile at all. No one really attended to us so we just sat... More

Pros: Right off of 64 and beside a gas station. The kitchen is in front, so you can see them making the food. The food was very good. Friendly and attentive staff. Cons: The women's restroom was disgusting. It reeked of everything foul, the floors and sink were filthy, and when you flush, the piping around the toilet sprayed out.... More

My fiance and I came here with high expectations of the Wafflehouse brand. We were pleased with the food. I was not at all pleased with the cleanliness of the restaurant or its servers. When we walked up to the door we were pleasantly greeted by a server who was smoking outside with her apron/smock on. This displeased me. The... More
