There is usually a line here and for good reason. They are friendly and efficient with getting people in and seated. Great choices, portions, service and grub. Not a surprise that this place is successful.

Both of The Waffle Shop's 2 locations serve up delicious breakfast and lunch. There are often lines waiting, but the wait is worth it and they move people through at a good pace. You can expect friendly service from a well trained staff.

Recently had both breakfast and lunch at this location and am never disappointed. Breakfast was a veggie omelet done soft, as I requested, along with home fries and toast. It was great! Lunch was a burger med, rare, done perfectly along with a side of piping hot, crispy fries. Server at lunch was friendly and outgoing, service was great. If... More

We ate here over homecoming weekend. They did a great job at moving the crowd in and out. The service was terrific. Overall, I have no complaints. I had expected more and that it why I was slightly disappointed. My son got a waffle with strawberries. The waffle was nice, light fluffy just like it should be. The strawberries were... More

We waited barely 15 min before being seated. The staff was so friendly. The food was delicious. The eggs Benedict were cooked to perfection and the home fries were tastey.

If only all of the breakfast restaurants worked like this, the world would be a better place! Exceptional service, great menu and well prices eats. Even before a football game, they managed to get us in and out in record time and with great food.

Came here breakfast before a game when visiting family in the area. Get here early on game day as the place will be crowded, but well worth the wait. Omelette and pancakes were delicious. Service was exceptional also, especially for a super busy Saturday morning.

This is the one place to eat. The food is fresh and so are their ingredients. The place gets very busy though and opens early to close around 3 pm. Breakfast salad is the best.

If you are looking for a great place to satisfy your morning hunger, this is the place. With many breakfast options such as waffles, pancakes, home fries, bacon and eggs and more you won't go hungry. The bacon is awesome and the wait staff is very nice. On home football game weekends, there is almost certainly a wait to get... More
