If you have never been to a Waffle House you should check it out. Even if it's just of coffee. This is where locals, truck drivers, and people traveling on I 75 come to eat. If you miss the dinners that used to be up north you have to come here. The menu is simple, and the food is good... More

This Waffle House is conveniently located very close to Interstate 75 and the Premium Outlets. Although a pretty tiny place, they move folks in and out efficiently. Their prices are very reasonable and the quality is surprisingly good. I had sausage gravy over hash browns, very tasty. I had the same thing in Sarasota recently, where it was twice the... More

We eat at WAFFLE HOUSE frequently. It has a convenient location just on the north side of 301 immediately east of I-75; a Pilot gas station is just across the street, too. Waffle House is an efficient, good-staple food-simple fare with excellent service. Its not scenic, nor fancy, but we love it.

Our server was Donna and she gave excellent service. Hot coffee and good breakfast served up quickly to allow us to get back to our travels.

We stopped at a Waffle House in Ellenton, Fl because I read on trip advisor that they have gluten free waffles. Let me be clear, they DO NOT have gluten free waffles. Very disappointed!

EVA was my extremely gracious server. My breakfast was the all star and this is BEST VALUE in industry or food business! Employees are so friendly as I said another icon experience!

I have not been there in about a year because my last 2 visits were horrible. We went in for breakfast and the floor was sticky, it smelled of sewer back up and the staff must have only had 1 uniform and none of them had access to a washer & dryer during their off time because they were all...

Always good food. Seating is tight if you are on the heavier side. Waffles are very good, breakfast done right.
