New Menu, New Management?

My boyfriend and I often come here for weekend brunches. I noticed they have updated their menu. There are some new items (the mish-mash omlete) and some revisions to old goodies. I couldn't help but wonder if the restaurant is under new management, and if there is a new cook; the pancakes seemed... read more

I was here last week with my family, the place was extremely busy, the service was excellent, the choices on the menu are a lot and the food is really good. The prices are also really good, the coffee as well, We had a great experience.

Quick, friendly service. The coffee keeps coming (the key to a great breakfast place!) and the food was excellent, with very generous portion sizes. During my last visit, we both had the Niagara Harvest. My guest, who had never been to the Early Bird, said that alone would make her a return customer! It's a very unique blend of fruit,... More

We have enjoyed many breakfasts at the Early Bird. They have a good selection of meals at reasonable prices well served. The owner is dedicated to his clients and is often on the floor helping out and making sure everybody is happy. If you plan to eat there on a weekend be sure to go early or make reservations because... More

Always amazing food at the Early Bird. The home fries are the best we have ever had. We moved out of town, but I'll still travel to the Early Bird for breakie; no other place can compare!

I visit the early bird very often. Always leave happy with the food and service I received. My 2 kids love the pancakes. I always get 3 eggs bacon sausage ham home fries . toast and coffee. Don't let the people at the motel or the looks of the motel scare you off. I've prolly been here 50 plus times... More

When we arrived they had already been open an hour, my wife and I were the 2nd and third people in the place our coffee arrived immediately and it... More

Typical diner - good food, large portions, nothing fancy. All day breakfast is served as well as sandwiches, soup and quiche for lunches. Plastic fruit hanging as decorations (ugh), and the place seems to be just clean enough to pass inspection. Always busy when I drive by, so they are doing something right.
