They knew I wasn't local

The staff didn't recognize me so were kind of cold at first. I noted that regulars were greeted warmly. But my food came promptly (loved the pecan waffles) and coffee refills were also promptly offered. After a little while they staff was a bit more pleasant.

When the waitress Stacey came to take our order she was rude as can be. Didn't really say much but what do you want and followed with OK whatever. Then when it came refills she didn't fill it up all the way and spilt some of it on the table and did not have any apologetic manner about what she... More

Grits were gray when I ask why they said too much butter. They were scorched. Ham was burnt. Server put our food down and sat down with the cook. Never ask if we wanted anything else in place of the grits. Came back when we were done. And when I once again complained they took off 1.50 from our bill.... More

The waffles were very tasty, cooked a little more crispy to our request. Requested crispy bacon, didn't get it right. Eggs were good, cooked to our request. The food was slow although not many people were there. My wife's food came out well ahead of mine. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Good place to meet friend on a cold morning to paddle the Green. Nice view and perfect location of upper or narrows trips. Food is what you would expect and the facilities are always clean. Staff is friendly.

This place is about 5 miles from my house. The food is normal fare. Nothing over $10.00.. The waitresses are a hoot. If you get Toots as a waitress she will remember your oder for a long time. On going specials every day. They just got a new Juke box.

Okay alot of you look down on Waffle Houses but shouldn't. They serve good food at a great price. Our breakfast was $20 less than Cracker Barrel (altough I love CB) it was fast and tasted good. This one had some reall good employees and they were fun and ery efficient - our tea was refilled without asking. What more... More
