Great little restaurant. Awesome breakfast with the best corned beef hash in the area. Simple menu, modest pricing and great service.

Breakfast was great, right until we saw the wait staff pour the unused coffee from your table's carafe back into the large coffee maker. Gross and likely a big no no with the health department. This was not just one person, but every table and every wait staff person. That's like trying to salvage the uneaten piece of toast from... More

Back to your youth in this mid-century looking breakfast lunch spot. Traditional diner offerings and about what you want for breakfast. Corned beef hash was good and the locals look like they've been coming for years. Overall a comfortable place and decent food.

I took my 4 year old daughter here last week for a special breakfast before school. I got her the cheese omelet, sausage, and bacon and I got the corned beef hash omelet. Both were very good and I will go back! Service was great and pricing was fair.

Rounds is a great breakfast joint. They're not open late. But if you're in the area visiting, it's a great place. Good diner with classics and also some of their own recipes.

Stopped in here last Sunday for breakfast. So glad we did! Had a short 15 minute wait and sat near the counter. Service was very good and the food... Excellent. I had Pancakes with Bacon, seems simple enough but if you love them like I do, there really is a difference and Rounds nailed it! My wife had Blueberry Pancakes... More

Great spot for breakfast in TC. Home cooked food with good portion sizes and served with a smile, which can be rare these days. If you're looking for hip and trendy, this is not your place. If you want a good meal at a decent price served by someone who is actually paying attention to you, go to Rounds.

Went on a Sunday morning with high expectations due to other reviews. And though we were seated quickly & had drinks shortly thereafter, from there things went downhill. The coffee is just OK. Our order took forever to be served, & when it came, the extra plate wasn't with it, which meant that no one could eat until the plate... More
