This place managed to make a difficult group of four very happy when we stopped for Saturday brunch after visiting the flea market. The chicken and waffles were delicious. Crispy Chicken and crispy waffles. Both had great flavor even without the added gravy and syrup. The quiche of the day and steak and eggs were also noted as very tasty.... More

We enjoyed our breakfast at The General Greene. The doughnuts and waffles with Nutella were hits with the girls and we enjoyed tasty eggs and drinks. Service was attentive.

Our waiter (name?) was delightful and so well informed on both drinks and food choices. Great menu variety for drinks and food. Three of us for dinner. One had beet salad, one duck burger and one hamburger. Everyone happy with their selection. Again want to give praise to our waiter. Ate here on a Tues night and sat outside.

Environment relaxed and pleasant & though full, we could hear each other talk without shouting. 3 of us shared a baby lettuce salad, 2 pizzas - margherita & funghi, and an apple crisp a la... More

Stopped in here because of a recommendation and it was fantastic food, but our waiter who had only been there 2-3 days just couldn't get anything correct....even affecting other customers as well. The pizzas were really good and so was the burger, plus their pate was super tasty.

We normally go to the general a few times a year for brunch and they never fail to serve up some great food. Just wish it was not so cramped. It's like sitting at one long table.

I have never done lunch or dinner here, just brunch, but they are good. I will have to try dinner or lunch here some time. I had plane fired eggs with bacon and as I write, I think they forgot to give me my bacon.
