Hello: I hope you are well. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed coming to your restaurant a few weeks ago. The atmosphere was friendly and the service was fast. The food can't even be described it was so good. I had the...cinnamon roll waffle, my son had the pecan waffle and my grandson had the plain waffle with bananas on the side. My waffle was so good, that I almost got a second one. It took a lot of willpower not to order a second one but the taste of that waffle will hold me until I come back and I WILL be back. One more thing, when we got ready to leave, we met the owner and told her how much we had loved our breakfast, she really appreciated it. She really took pride in her business and actually stopped washing dishes to come out to talk to us. She saw us talking to one of her employees. You don't see that very often an owner is so involved in their business. It was refreshing. After all customer service, no matter where you go is a dying art. I grew up during a time when customer service and manners were at the forefront of our society. That is no longer the case. She also made my day by giving me the warmest hug. I came home to Charlotte, NC, and told everyone about your business. Keep doing what you are doing! Johnny D's is AWESOME not just because of the food but because of the people!More

This was a fabulous place. Everything was homemade. They had biscuits almost as good as my Grandmother made. I had the Crab and Shrimp Omelet and it was so delicious! I sure wish I lived close by, I'd have breakfast there everyday!

Very possibly the most extensive breakfast menu I have ever seen (and I'm 71 & travel 5 months out of the year). Waffles have a unique batter & are delicious. Sides (bacon & hash browns are very good. If you're an eggs person , which...I'm not, this is the place. The server (Julia) was very warm, informative and attentive. She made it a very enjoyable experience. We even bought the shirts. Strong suggestion: arrive before 10 am.More

Server was friendly and upsold me on some eggs and sausage so...I absolutely did not leave hungry. Server was really attentive. I love that they leave coffee carafe on the table so you don’t have to wait on a warm up! Decor was really nice with some awesome local art work around the restaurant.

A lot of choices here, Particularly signature waffles and benedicts. Service was reasonably fast but the food was delivered hot which is most important. Settled on blueberry waffle and classic benedict. These are served with grits if you would like breakfast potatoes there is an...extra charge. The up charges are the only negative.More

My wife and I had breakfast here since they had a high TA rating. I had the waffle platter with the blueberry option. Absolutely fantastic - they must use soda water to make the waffles so light. My over easy Eggs were cooked to perfection...and the sausage great. My wife had the farmers omelet with a side of bacon. It was so huge that she took most of it back to our apartment. I had one of her bacons and it was absolutely perfect - crispy. Definitely will return.More

This review is mainly because the manager at the Jimmy D’s in this restaurant was very rude and did not have proper customer service. My family and I came there; being a larger party (15) so I will say we understood if we could not...sit together at the same table, just wanted to close to each other but when they called us after a long wait they did not have the proper seating for the total party that we put in for and when speaking with the manager she was very rude and dismissive. I just wanted my family to be in each others proximity and her response to me was extremely dismissive; she even rolled her eyes at me…what a lack of professionalism and customer service. I also overheard our waitress telling another table that they were going to be her favorite table after my family was just seated; it may have been a coincidence but it made it seem like we were going to be a horrible party for her and the other table was going to be at the better table not… that it matters but just wanna make sure it’s in the review. I would tell the folks that work at that restaurant especially the manager that she needs it attain better customer service training …to be clear we weren’t difficult and we could’ve been very difficult so I know there’s worse patrons that you run into in customer service; but that’s the business you’ve chosen. So you should be accommodating to very reasonable customer service requests. The breakfast food was just fine so that was a good part.More
