We treated two families to breakfast at the restaurant of their choice in the town where they live. The picked this one. When we arrived there was a rather large line waiting to be seated and now there were 13 of us to add to the list. It is not really that big of a place and it was filled... More

My favorite breakfast spot. Love, love, love the corn beefed hash breakfast w/home fries. Sometimes, especially the weekend, I wish they were open past 2pm. The service is ALWAYS fast and friendly! Their catering for events is great too! Once went to an evening event catered by AH and the food was really great!

I've been to American Host many times since moving to Lompoc just 3 months ago. I go out for breakfast quite often, so I've tried several other places, but American Host is my favorite. The main reason is the simplest; the food. Their Chicken Fried Steak and eggs, NY Steak and eggs, and SOS (made with ground chuck instead of... More

Really great breakfast...wonderful potatoes & veggie scramble. Tried it for lunch, too, and had a veggie burger and homemade chips (really, really yummy, crispy hot chips!)

Yes I am a returning customer and will be every time I am in the area. Everything I've eaten I could eat again. When I go I try new menu items. Never a disappointment! Everyone I've gone with would agree- a must try. Service is also amazing.

We love this place. Pros: Servers are friendly and attentive. The food is yuuuuummmy. HUGE fluffy omelettes, the best pancakes EVER (they just SOAK up the butter and syrup). Love the Americana decorations and the cute American flags on all the plates. Cons: Expect a 30 min+ wait on weekends. A little expensive (we order the large combo meal and... More

American Host is a great restaurant that all the locals know about. It is quite busy on the weekends because it is so good. My family loves the pork chops, ham, omelets, waffles & pancakes. The burgers are great too, especially the CA bacon avocado burger. We go there frequently on Saturday mornings & have never been disappointed!!!

This is my hometown go to. Where everybody knows your name. I buy these guys christmas gifts. I will not eat breakfast anywhere else in town. They have an amazing breakfast gravy. They have by far the best chicken fried steak I've ever had.!!! A must have. Home fries are great big chunks of potatoes with onions and bell peppers.... More

This was a busy restaurant but we were seated and received our order in a timely manor. Seems to be a spot the locals know. I had French Toast Combo.
