I really think this is the best budget restaurant. I'm lucky enough to live close to it. I've done a lot of traveling and have yet to find something better. Consistently great for years. Not a easy thing. Thanks please keep it up

We had breakfast here while visiting family in the area. It was a Saturday morning and the place was full! It is clear that it is the 'place to be' for breakfast. The menu is extensive, the food was very good, the servings were large, and the service was friendly and efficient. Who knew that you could still find a... More

There was no wait for our party of 6 at 9am. Service was quick and portions were big. A wait did start shortly after 9:30. The food was good and mimosas were a great start to the day.

We came early as to avoid the crowd of a Mother's Day breakfast. It's seat yourself and we found a table as soon as we walked in. The food was delicious I got eggs and french toast. The French Toast you look at and think that doesn't look to good but then I took a bite and it was pretty... More

We like this place and the fact that you can get organic eggs. Service is quick and friendly, portions are large. Plenty of parking but there can be a lengthy wait at times for a table...... But it is worth the wait.

Early Bird has a wider selection than most local diners. In addition to the usual eggs and bacon and omelets they have waffles, Huevos Rancheros, and some inventive Benedicts. I like their Benedict with roast beef and roasted red pepper. Early Bird also has sandwiches and American dinners - meatloaf, turkey, ham and potatoes. The food is good, plentiful, and... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. I drive 45 minutes to get here and it's always worth the trip. The grilled reuben is unbelievably perfect. The corned beef is melt in your mouth good, the ratio of dressing and sauerkraut is perfect...this would be my death row meal, seriously that good! The service here is always great.... More

I have eaten at the "Bird" many times and the food and service is Great !! The home fries with breakfast are the best and the owner is known for his huge, home made Blueberrie Muffins (or other fruits in season too). Daily Specials are posted each day and can be counted on to be a good value and tasty.... More
