Best happy hour around, and good food, nice noise level, and just a good franchise to enjoy a drink and/or meal.

Party of 12, various ages ( 8-68 ), yet still pretty good. The breakfasts were all good with great portions. Mixed reviews on dinners. My Rockfish was plenty but lacked seasoning leaving it somewhat bland. The smoothies are good and the dessert was really good. Service consedering the group size was good. Only one blip on the multiple checks. Not... More

My wife and I arrived here at 8am this Friday morning when the restaurant had not become packed as it usually does. We were seated at a booth opposite the bar area which we like as it's not usually as loud there. We ordered a couple coffees, I got the Classic, and the wife ordered two eggs and the Fried... More

We go here sometimes for Sunday breakfast. Food is always good. Their menu is extensive. Recommend going early, because it gets really crowded later in the morning.

This restaurant did not exceed my expectations, but left me wondering how many other customers are being ripped off by this place. During my first visit and most likely last visit to this restaurant I trusted the waitress advise on what to order, which was a big mistake. She lead me to believe that if I ordered the fresh start... More

The food here is always good, however for the price I think it is generally a poor deal. Normally someone in our party always leaves hungry or feels ridiculous for paying so much money for a simple meal. They have a very large selection of food including sandwiches and other types of food beyond the normal brunch fair. If you... More

We had a horrible experience at another restaurant last night. This place made up for it! The atmosphere is awesome, our server Casey was on top of things, and the food was AMAZING! I have Celiac Disease so the selection of gluten free options is a breath of fresh air! I got the meal with grilled chicken, eggs, potatoes, and... More

Food is all very good now. They have definitely improved, specially if you come when they are not jammed. Had a tasty shrimp, chicken, and linguini alfredo. Wife had a b-l-t with egg on a tasty bagel. Both very good plates.

I was so excited to find this restaurant! I was on the annual girls adventure with my Goddaughter who is a true Egg enthusiast and she was delighted with her breakfast! The service was good and the choices were amazing! Looking forward to going back!

Love this place. Everybody in the family loves this place. Terrific selection and all well done. It can get busy on the weekends, though so be aware. It is worth a wait - definitely better than Bob Evans up the street. Dinners are also good and normally no wait. Deals on kids meals too.

Thank Peter H
