Where do I star! First impression when I walked in with my husband for lunch was if they even clean this place. After waiting for 5 minutes, we were seated and gave our drink order to the waitress. After 10 minutes, another waitress came and...More

Wonderful atmosphere, warm fire, wonderful homemade food, nice variety. We got Norm's omelette and French toast on homemade bread with apples, blueberries and cinnamon. They also had a nice variety of teas. Friendly staff

We arrived at this pleasant location at about 2:30 for lunch. Less than half the tables were occupied. We ordered our food right away, since we were quite hungry- a BLT and personal pizza- nothing complicated. Then we waited and waited and waited and waited....More

Everything seemed to be a struggle for this establishment. We didn't get menus for 10 minutes. The drinks took 10 minutes and one was forgotten. That drink took another 5 minutes. Our food was delivered without silverware and we stared at it for at least...More

The food was not the greatest. Pancakes were poor quality. The waitress was not attentive at all we waited a half hour just for water! Then another hour for food. Just a shame since the place has a good atmosphere.

I have eaten at the looking glass numerous times and I have been surprised by the menu selection and friendly atmosphere each time. After looking at the previous review I felt I should comment on the fried green tomatoes. I'm not sure exactly when Dan...More

From the outside, this establishment looked promising; however, the inside is a cluttered, dusty mess. The waitress was quickly overwhelmed once two tables had been seated. After a long wait for both the food and drinks, we indulged in the breakfast. After a few sips...More
