I was there for lunch and the food was delicious. I had a cup of the chili and The Spindle sandwich. Our server was Kayla and she was pleasant. I enjoyed the decor with all different types of chairs. Prices were reasonable. The only downside was our table was right by the register so people were constantly trying to get... More

Went with my four year old for breakfast around 8. Waitress let us sit by the window so he could watch the traffic. Good, quick service. Food was great; he had waffles and I had eggs benedict. Coffee was refilled regularly and there was plenty of creamer. It's always a treat to come here.

My daughter introduced me to this restaurant and now it's one of my favorite places to go. I love the food, the staff and the atmosphere with all the old tables and chairs.

When we want to have a "special" breakfast meal in a delightful "antique" environment - this is the place we head. Great food, great service, great prices and plenty of things to look at while you visit and eat your meal. I like to ask my wife to identify various items on the walls (she is from Chicago) - it...

My husband and I visited the Wooden Chair for the first time on a Saturday morning around 10:00. It was relatively busy, but we were seated immediately. The mismatched chairs are just part of the charm of the restaurant. There are many antique pieces tastefully decorating the dining area, including some small pieces inside the refrigerated case containing bakery items.... More

The Wooden chair is a great place for breakfast and lunch. I had the Banana Walnut Pancakes, and was happy I made that choice. Great flavor and adequate portion (2 pancake choice). Very good choice and we are always happy with this place. The restaurant was a little chilly on this day (very cold outside and the draft just flies... More
