My in-laws like eating here. Ever since my husband got severe food poisoning from the blue cheese dressing we don't go here. Only for breakfast 1-2 times since. That was almost 9 years ago. My kids like the steak sandwiches. I have hot the French toast. Decent but nothing special. The decor and chairs, booths need to be updated and... More

I've enjoyed breakfast there many times. Great service and a varied menu. You will love the servers, old timers with a great sense of humor. Specials are a great value.

You would think you're in the '60s, but you're not. "Smoking or no smoking?" was the first question we were asked. FYI smoking is only outside on the patio. Place was crowded, but we were seating in 5 or 10 minutes. Old fashioned breakfast fare with incredibly fluffy pancakes. Services is quite good.

My wife and I will not go out to breakfast, in Gilroy, any where else. Great variety of items, and always daily specials. Friendly, attentive staff. Good food and good prices.

We weren't sure The Longhouse would be a good experience... The parking lot was full & when we went in to be seated we were ignored for a few.
