My parents and I decided to try Uncle Bill's last night. They hadn't been there in a few years due to a bad experience (service related, they were told they were out of something and another table that came in later ordered and received the item they claimed they were out of). But, with it having been a few years... More

I love pancakes and this is a great place to find them. I found it by accident while getting my car serviced. Uncle Bill's is that family restaurant that the chains have edged out - but not this one. I've come here several times and even on off hours, people are eating there. And there is free wifii which I... More

Scrambled eggs with diced ham and two Pancakes on the senior menu is an excellent value. The Waitresses was kind helpful and prompt.

We wanted to eat after seeing a play so arrived about 11. Our waitress Jenny was rude and snippy. She must think she's very professional. The other waitress was doing her homework. We were given a table and a glass of water and then left for 10 minutes while they busied themselves at the station in the middle. My omelet... More

Love their food. Great home made, quality food. Always busy and always delish. Unique pancake dishes. They also have lunch and dinner specials (fried chicken - oh yeah). Do try it out - you will not be disappointed. Not fancy, not cheap, but it is breakfast like mom used to make.

We had the best server, she was kind, polite and attentive with a smile. The food was tasty and hot. But the steak was over cooked. Try the pecan pancakes, delish.

I really like their pecan waffles and the country style ham. Good coffee friendly service. Orders come fast. Pancakes are awesome and they are always open when you need a pancake

Our visit recently was for breakfast. The decor is a bit dated but that adds to the charm. You placement is your menu. The food was served hot and delicious. I think they are a bit pricey but still moderate range. Server was attentive and continually kept the coffee filled.

My husband and I looked forward to breakfast at Uncle Bill's because everyone raves about it...not sure why. We had breakfast that was average and that's being generous. Service was "ok". Not planning to return and we love to go out to breakfast.

Thank shtoreed
