Totally worth the wait!

Just do it- just wait the 45 min to eat at this place! It's amazing! Use the app to get on the list a little faster. Amazing coffee, Scrumptious bacon- and yes bacon waffles-, and no words can even describe the Apple Thingy! Delicious

If I don't eat anything else from this restaurant, I HAVE to have the applewood smoked bacon. It reminds me of smokehouse bacon I used to eat as a child growing up in MS. The pancakes are light and fluffy and go great with the bacon! On a Saturday or Sunday morning, you need to get there by 7:30 a.m.... More

They have lots of great food items....even the plain pancakes taste so good...get blueberry pancakes or any waffles or combinations. This is a great place for breakfast and business meetings. AVOID Saturdays and Sundays...go during the week. Weekends the wait can take more than 1 hour for a table... Best mornings are Tuesdays thru Thursdays....when everyone is at school and... More

Frankly, this place does everything well. However, I hate it when people say that when I want direction on what to order. So.... The pancakes are candy-magic-melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Cant go wrong with the plain pancakes. IF you want a little extra scrumptious sugar injection to start your day- I would recommend the Bananas Foster pancakes with the pralines... WOW. IF... More

Tasty pancakes but a long wait. There are lots of pancakes to choose from but I still prefer the Guenther House to Magnolia.

We went on a Monday with a party of 7. We waited 10 min or less for a table. Among us we tried the Southern Bennie, corned beef hash, chocolate chip pancakes, and blueberry pancakes. Our kids ate every bite on their plates! My husband loved the Southern Bennie so much that he kept insisting I try it because he... More

Waited over an hour to get in. Ordered the corned beef hash that they make themselves from scratch. The potatoes they use a re laced with garlic totally destroying any flavor of corned beef. We will not return. I hope their pancakes are good.

Wow, wow, wow! Best breakfast ever. We had the homemade corned beef hash (YouTube the video) and the apple cinnamon pancakes. Even the coffee is out of this world. Expect a long wait but it's totally worth it. They close at 2pm so the last seating is around 1pm.
