The service was quick, the food was tasty. Generous portions, the waitress and hostess were friendly. The bathroom was clean, even after 10am. I would eat here again.

Let's face it: Waffle House is not an upscale dining place. The emphasis is on decent food in a decent amount of time for a decent price. Here's why this experience gets 5 stars - while Dr. Susan and I were eating our waffles and bacon, a bizarre auto accident sent a tire bounding through the air from 50 yards... More

Don't stop here my bacon was rotten no seating except by the restroom so we ate at the counter. Overall experience was not enjoyable I would pass up this spot.

We stopped in at this waffle house in between games at a soccer tournament. It was similar to other waffle houses. We were there at an odd time, about 2pm. The cook was on a break, but the only wait staff was great. I ordered blueberry pancakes, but they were out, so the waitress asked me to choose something else.... More

Coming from Europe, we made a trip to the USA this September. Leaving from Lafayette to Saint Francisville, we did not know where to have breakfast. The Motel 6 receptionist told us about Waffle House. So we did try it.. Excellent breakfast and good coffee. Also, the personnel was sympathetic. So, do not hesitate to enter "Waffle House"... you will... More

Came here for brunch and even though they were very busy they went out of their way to say hello and welcome. Food was served very quickly and tasted great. Even the grill cook was friendly and greeting people!

First of all, it IS the Waffle House. It is not a fancy restaurant. I love eating at Waffle House restaurants. This one did not disappoint. Had lunch on my way back to Houston from Amelia LA. Friendly waitstaff. Food was good, coffee was fresh. And, you can get breakfast any time of day...which is great. Very convenient just off... More

This is our halfway spot from Houston to Biloxi so we've stopped here many times in the past. We stopped over the Memorial weekend and have absolutely no complaints. I do have a comment on one of the servers, I believe his name was Ray. The dude had us rolling in laughter from his upbeat attitude about having girls, since... More

People waiting at filthy tables while workers stood around argued and ignored customers. Finally walked out with others not served.
