Baldie's has great food, and you never leave hungry. It's located at the end of a small strip mall of food places and 7/11. They have lots of choices, and are a local favorite. They tend to get busy at the normal meal times, but the food is well worth the wait. Their omelettes are fluffy, I get crispy hash... More

Great place for breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, french toast, hashbrowns, eggs, bacon and sausage... Food is a lot better than Ihop, service is great also. Expect big crowds esp on weekends.

We don't visit Baldie's often but when we are in the mood for comfort food, Baldie's doesn't disappoint. There may not be many like me, but I enjoy liver and onions every once in a while, and since you can't find this on many menus, it's Baldie's to the rescue. The offerings go well beyond this choice and check out... More

Baldies seems to be popular with visitors, families, sports nuts, seniors and everyone else. They get a lot of repeat business, from what I could see. The food is a classic line up of diner standards such as burgers, waffles, salads, sandwiches and the section is huge. Portions are generous and the service is quick. They're happy to give doggy...

We go to Baldie's quite often. The food is always good and the portions are pretty good sized. The food is tad more expensive than a normal diner but the place is well maintained and very clean.

We came here on a recommendation from a family member that said it was good. I was pretty excited as we were on vacation and I was craving some really yummy breakfast food. We ordered an omelet and French toast. Both of which were average and definitely nothing to write home about. The coffee was pretty bad, which I guess... More

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, this is a solid choice for a good meal. Don't expect fancy, just a well prepared meal with good quality and generous portions. Good value if you are looking for comfort food.

I really like this place.... We've been going here for years and I always look forward to a visit . I always get a friendly welcome. Creature of habit that I am , I always seem to order the weekend waffle special - two eggs , 2 bacon and a big ol' waffle . I get the waffle with strawberries... More

The food is great and so are the prices. Much better than home cooking and no dishes to wash. The people are friendly and the service is wonderful

Great food! Great service! Worthy of a visit. My husband and I had prime rib and our daughter had a bacon cheese burger. Everything was great! Portions are big. We came home with leftovers.
