The Saturday morning wait can push the limits of your hunger, but the food and serving portions make up for it. Great food, great service, and fairly priced. The hostess is a joy and a great ambassador to the public.

Our family went in and everyone was so pleasant, in a good mood the service was amazing. The food was exactly what you expect to get from your grandmother's house. This experience left our hearts and stomachs full of joy. For sure we'll go back anytime we are in the area.. what a pleasure

I had eggs with grits and side of pancakes. All was good, great cup of coffee too. This place has been around a long time. Many who are staying at The Arlington will go here for good food with good prices.

Expect a wait during racing season but it is well worth it. If you want a large country breakfast this is the place for you

The blueberry pancakes were delicious and the house made sausage patties are very good also. My wife had the ham and cheese omelette which she really enjoyed (the bite she gave me was one of the best I've had). The staff is very friendly and helpful. We went on a Monday morning and there was no wait.

My husband had never ate here so he couldn't understand all the hype in waiting with 50 other people to get inside to eat pancakes. He was amazed at how wonderful the food was. He raved about the banana pancakes for hours. The staff is very friendly and helpful in decision making off the menu, the portions are enormous and... More

Great coffee and a good breakfast selection! Service is quick even when very busy. Buckwheat pancakes and apple butter were fantastic!
