Had a great breakfast here with fast, friendly service. Loved the coffee! It is located right next to the Holiday Inn so was very convenient to have breakfast here before heading back on the highway to Michigan.

I don't think I've ever had a bad meal at a Waffle House. Go there, be greeted warmly, order and eat. It is simple and satisfying.

Great food as expected. Texas cheese steak is my favorite. The breakfast is always a winner. Waffles are the best. The girls there never fail to put cherry juice in my drink, as I request. Love the "after bar time" crowd and entertainment. Always leave smiling.

Great service & watch your food being prepared! Always hot & ready! Variety of choices. Open 24-hours a day. Inexpensive for what you receive.

We hadn't eaten at a Waffle House in a long time. The menu is very "basic breakfast", but the food was very well-prepared and tasty. The service was very friendly, and the place had homey feeling, even for us "northerners" in a southern state.

You're greeted with a friendly "Hello" by one or more of the staff as you enter. Not a huge dining room, but there are booths and a counter with "bar stool" seating. Get ready for some southern cooking. It's always good and filling. A great breakfast spot after spending the night at the nearby Motel 6.

I was very pregnant, so I had to sit in a chair on the end of the table because I could not fit in booth. food was okay, nothing special. service was adequate, had to ask for rest of our order, it had been delivered to another table, had to wait for it to be remade.

Thank izabellephoenix
