“Typical Breakfast Fare Neat Clean Good Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We dined for a late breakfast Monday morning. We were greeted instantly by a very friendly and upbeat hostess who seemed to know our preferences for tables, as she scooted us upstairs to the front all glassed in room. Tables were pleasantly appointed and we were given menus quickly. Our waitress was available within 2-3 minutes, and we told her we knew what we wanted. The coffee is recommended, and I had two eggs over easy white buttered toast, bacon and home fries. The bacon was cooked preliminarily then popped into the deep fryer, so extra crispy. Toast was thicker more robust bread, and the home fries were average. My partner had corned beef hash which was not typical and consisted up tiny cut up fragments of meat which were rather bland and dry. But the service overall was good, and a nice value for the money. We would go there again!

“Unpleasant from the start”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have been going to the hole in one for breakfast for a long time. I have always enjoyed it there, waitresses are usually great, food is good and quick. However this summer has been nothing but awful. Last time I tried to have breakfast there I walked out because the hostess was so rude. Not a good way to greet people. If you cant handle the job and be pleasant to people walking in the door then you shouldn't be a hostess.

“What's better than donuts?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nothing, especially these donuts. I can't speak for all varieties with just one trip, but get the honey dipped donuts were wonderful. Go and have a treat. Coffee was mediocre, though I had decaf. Maybe their regular coffees are better.

“Ok food but poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

A 45 min wait for tables, another 30 mins for our food to arrive. The tables are tightly packed in and the wait seemed to be partly because of the slow waiting staff. We had a number of dirty tables near us which too a while to clear based on the size of the wait. The food was standard breakfast fair and the waitress was short with us.

“Has turned horrible.... From a long time customer”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

What a huge disappointment. Have been here countless times but 2013 has sucked for lack of a better word. We were told 30 min wait only to have it be over an hour. The hostess was indignant and unapologetic this would annoy someone with 4 young kids. The server was pleasant and good. The breakfast took near 45 min to arrive ( not her fault). The food was average but not nearly as good as previous years.

The mens room trash was overflowing and out of TP and generally filthy

Not sure I will go back and certainly cannot recommend to anyone anymore.
