Arrived with just one party ahead of us. Waited, saw people come in after and get seated. Waited longer, more people came in, got seated. Discovered by accident (heard one of the parties state this) that they booked online. These people took precedence over walk ins. We left, went across the parking lot to Bob Evans.

We do not want our customers to feel skipped over, we encourage everyone to download the app as it makes it easier and helps the wait move quicker. We appreciate your feedback... More

I would give First Watch 5-stars just based off of their staff. From walking in to checking out, everyone was extremely nice and had a smile on their face. Now, the food. I had the eggs Benedict, and it was exactly how it should taste. The potatoes that came with it were also good. They also give you a thermos... More

Looking for a good breakfast or lunch spot. If you are near Beavercreek or Fairborn or Wright-Patterson AFB Ohio, then First Watch is the place. The food & service are excellent. The menu is ok, but somewhat limited. Not enough you will notice the first hand full of times you go there - so, does that really count? If you... More

Loved the food and the smiles here. Saturday was our first time, long line but they were very fast at clearing tables and getting people seated. The menu was different then most places we go so it was hard to decide. The food and service was so good, we went again the next morning! Great staff, full of smiles and... More

A wonderful menu with lots of healthy options that are packed full of flavor. Seating can get tight so call ahead. While wheelchair accessible some areas would be tights. A little pricy but you get great quality fare. They always have excellent specials! My favorite (from the menu) are the Wheat germ pancakes which are huge!!

I ate there for breakfast today and I had the Chocolate chip pancake potatoes and a hot chocolate. All three of the items I had where really good and the place was really clean. The staff was very attentive. Now if you need parking, parking is a little hard to find but it is totally worth it.

We were staying nearby at the Homewood Suites. We came out to see the Air Force Museum. Skipped the free breakfast at the Homewood and ventured here with my 12 year old son. He ordered the chocolate chip multi-grain pancake. In his words, it was the best pancake he has ever had. (I didn't take that too personally since I... More

I've always heard great things about this restaurant and wanted to experience it for myself. It was very crowded for Tuesday morning and we had a 10 minute wait in a very small area. It took forever to get drinks and place our order. Our server wasn't very friendly. I asked for more cream for my coffee and I never... More
