Okay, I know this is a chain restaurant, BUT...they do so many things right! The food and service are consistently good, which we all expect from a restaurant. However, it's the extras here that make a difference. On weekends, when there's a long wait, they have free coffee and tea while you wait. They also have plenty of newspapers for... More

We have eaten here many times and get consistently good fast food in a sit down pleasant, but not fancy restaurant. Among other things on their menu,there is a choice of doing half a sandwich plus a cup of soup, as well as a choice of having a sandwich and green salad. There are also plenty of choices for those...

Service was mediocre. Food came quickly; although it doesn't take long to make an omelet. The omelet was bland in taste and was overpriced. Server was also relatively inattentive. I will not go back.

Does not stack up to Another Broken Egg at all. Food nowhere as good. The only pancakes they served were multi grain. Like eating saw dust. Despite this review, the place was jammed with a line. Very noisy due to the acoustics of the restaurant.

Staff is very attentive and extra polite. One waitress, Sarah is such friendly person and so are the others. Food is really great and dynamic.

I have been to this restaurant twice and have been very satisfied with their breakfast offerings. The atmosphere is "plain" but the food is excellent. After all, what more do you want in a breakfast restaurant?

First of all the food is every good,well prepared and the server was very attentive .On the down side there usually is a wait for breakfast,the interior could not be any plainer,tables close together .I would not think a 30 minute wait would be worth it.

Everything was fresh and prepared well. I had the Eggs Benedict with ham and tomato. Being from Canada, I am used to having this prepared with peameal bacon; I would have enjoyed it more if better ham had been used than just cold cut slices. Still good though.

We go to First Watch in Bradenton, FL on Sundays after church and we are never dissatisfied! We go as a group of 6 to 10 people and they always manage to seat us altogether and our food always comes out hot and delicious! The waitresses are friendly and wear a smile on their faces!
