Good, will come here again.. Prices were good. Clean place. Local place was good food. Clean and service was ok. Server was a little snippy in beginning, almost had to remind her..but she apparently calmed down cause attitude was different when she returned to table.

Wow, I have yet to get a breakfast that is hot food. Hash brown's almost cold or lukewarm. That place is at the bottom of my list for breakfast. Use to enjoy this location for breakfast when Portillo's owned. Sucks Now!!

This place is good... And very family friendly. I'm glad they have reopened! I went here with a member that had severe allergies and they accommodated us.

We have been going here since it opened. Before it closed (new management?), food was fresh and delicious. Worth waiting 45+ minutes to get a table. Since it reopened we have been a few times and have been disappointed with food quality (raw hash browns, cold eggs, etc). Not enough staff, have to track down waiter, dirty dishes aren't cleared...

I have rated Honey Jam poorly in the past. It was much better when it was owned by Portillo's. Today's visit did nothing to change my opinion. The food is at best average. The price is way too high for the quality. I had 2 pieces of French toast, eggs, and bacon. This is the way the dish comes, I... More

Went to lunch and ordered a hamburger w/o bun and a side of hash browns. There were 2 of us and it took close to 20 minutes to get my order and when it arrived the hash browns were raw. I tried doctoring them but they didn't last very long and I got sick and evacuated them 15 minutes later.

I have been to Honey Jam a couple times taking my mom out to lunch. Every time the wait staff has been wonderful, accommodating and prompt. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, my mom is older and using a walker and they always try to put us near the fireplace...THANK YOU! Food is traditional breakfast/lunch always well presented and tasty.

My family loves to eat breakfast out. We go to many different restaurants in the area often. Originally when Honey Jam opened the atmosphere was warm and delightful. The menu had a nice breakfast assortment. The Raspberry & White Chocolate pancakes were amazing, so light and fluffy they melted in your mouth. Great coffee! Although the old management made it...
