Dad's is a local breakfast/lunch hang out. Food not spectacular until you get some Pie. Then your taste buds light up and you only want more!

We started our breakfast with pie - creamy and light. Average breakfast, nothing to brag about and the hashbrowns not as crispy as I like. This is a local diner where everybody knows your name. Cute place in downtown Prineville. Friendly service.

Always eat here a few times while in Prineville. Hamburgers and fries are really good too.....BUT we have a hard time not going for breakfast! We ALWAYS get their sourdough pancakes. Sooo good.

We ordered eggs and pancakes from a very traditional menu selection, and were not disappointed. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Portions were too large to finish (especially the hash browns), but delicious.

We wanted to have breakfast there a couple of months ago. All I wanted to order was a side of hashbrowns with onions and chedder. The waitress told me they couldn't do that ( I am not kidding), because they already had a bunch of hashbrowns on the grill and didn't have enough room to put a "special order" on... More

Old carpet, no substitutions allowed, No Gluten Free items. Stuck in the past. Very basic food no real flavor. The waitress was nice but when I asked if I could substitute something since they didn't offer gluten free toast I was told no substitutions allowed.

The portions are hearty and the people are nice. If you don't like hamburger gravy don't get the biscuits and gravy. Really like their food though.

This place is like the cafes you see on TV and in movies. A friendly place, with great food and bottomless coffee cups. I had the sourdough pancakes. They were huge, light and fluffy.
