Came here on a Sunday afternoon and got breakfast at 1pm... Not many places in Bowie to have a sit down breakfast, so this was a good find. The hostess and host did a great job of bussing tables, and keeping the wait time at a minimum (15 minutes) for people on the seating waiting list.
The food was okay: I ordered the "Bob Evans Omlette" and some hotcakes... I've had tastier omlets and IHOP has better pancakes; the $3 a glass orange juice I ordered was watered-down and was pulpy.
The biggest bright spot was the overall service by our waiter guy. He name was Patrick - and he was very personable and friendly, catering to our two kids (ages 2 and 5), and making us feel like anything we asked for was no problem. I am in the service industry and noticed he did all of the little things that make a difference: he smiled as he served, he engaged us in brief, meaningful conversation, and was generally visible. He updated us on our order after 15 minutes and kept our drinks filled and refilled. If you want service that is 5-star in an otherwise 3-star establishment, make sure you ask to sit in his section.
