Large restaurant, nice and clean. Large portions. Everything comes with eggs so come with a hearty appetite. I had the strawberry banana waffle with poached eggs. Delicious. Kids had french toast--huge pieces and very good. Didn't eat lunch that day!

Compliments to the Chef for the Patriotic Waffle presentation. Very well cooked and tasty. (add $2.00 for "real" maple syrup??? If you equated this to oil the maple syrup would be about 200.00 a barrel. I was intrigued by the fruit drink(pineapple tonic) which included pineapple, lime, orange, coconut, and ginger. ($3.99) The drink was watery, and was full of... More

Didn't get anything fancy but the eggs, bacon, fruit, and pancakes were good. The eggs (easy over) were cooked as requested. Service was good and portions large. The restaurant was immaculate. All in all a good place for breakfast

Husband had meat skillet and I had hash and eggs. Both were tasty. Nice to have coffee pot on table so we didn't have to wait for (busy) waitress to fill our cups. CLEAN place. Pleasant staff. Will go back when in that area.

We visit this establishment at least once a month (my elderly father more often) and I enjoy the consistency of food. On rare occasion, I've had issues with anything resolved readily and satisfactorily. I am happy they will accommodate what they refer to as "gluten free friendly" items on the menu and do substitutions w/o tons of add on fees.... More
