Shop looks rather old fasioned and seem to not have changed in centuries. Waffles were nice but you have eaten for the day. You should avoid the bacon, wasn't great.

Returned to the restaurant again as we enjoyed it a couple of years ago. Sadly this time it was a huge disappointment. The food was tasteless. My ham did not taste right. The hash browns were soggy and tasteless. The eggs were ok. Service was good. Would not return again.

They advertise "Best Hash browns in Town" but they were tasteless, soggy, frozen, shredded potatoes. Sausage seemed like a frozen pre-fab type of sausage patty. My waffle was tough and served with some sort of fake butter. However, my 2 eggs over easy were prepared perfectly. Service was good too. Everyone in my family agreed that this was a waste... More

Very much a diner experience. Good "greasy spoon" late night food. Everything is good because it's not good for you.

Very clean and well-kept place just off Exit 137 of I-81. Great breakfast food served 24 hours a day. Like their cheese steak alot. French fries are my favorite - crinkle cut and always fried to perfection. My wife likes their biscuits and gravy. I like the taste of their sausage patties. Have never had a bad meal here. Enjoy...

This isn't a French omelette shop. It's a Waffle House on steroids when it comes to the 'good morning's... 'how's your food'... 'want more coffee'. I went standard... scrambled eggs, hash browns with onions, patty sausage, wheat toast and coffee. My friend... the western omelet with hash browns, toast and coffee. Perfect Omelet Shoppe preparation... and hot of the griddle.... More

On the road traveling early in the morning and wanted some breakfast. My husband ordered an omelet with cheese and mushrooms. They put the cheese ON TOP of the omelet?? And the mushrooms were from a can. He was very disappointed. I have never seen anyone put the cheese on top of the omelet....bizarre. I ordered a pecan waffle and... More

Long day on the road, late into the hotel, hungry...Omelet Shoppe! Good food, quick service, good price. Close to a number of hotels. It's nothing fancy but it's tasty and filling and good value for the money.
