We were promptly seated at a restaurant noted for its wait, so we were delighted. Wait staff was pleasant and the atmosphere created a perfectly enjoyable morning. Food was very good, hot, and tasty. I had an omelet which was huge but delicious. All of our meals were very good. Pancakes, excellent. Bacon crisp and coffee hot. We walked out... More

Food was mediocre and expensive. Wait time is long. Not at all worth the hype for a cheaper price you can just go to Ohio and get more food at a more reasonable price.

My husband had tried bringing me here before but when we came in the weekend, the wait was too long. So we came on a Friday, during the lunch hour and we were seating within a few minutes. They have a good selection to choose from and the pecan pancakes were light, fluffy and delicious! My husband had the apple... More

Great food and service and not a bad price. Don't plan on lunch after eating here though because you'll be full. I had the biscuits and gravy which was great.

This restaurant provides excellent food and service. During the weekends, it is very crowded. Plan to wait at least 30 minutes, but the meal will be well worth the wait. The waffles and the German dishes are highly recommended.

Came for Sunday brunch. Had the Mimosa, eggs Benedict and my husband had the Bloody Mary and corned beef hash. The service was awesome. The restaurant very clean. We did have a 60 min wait, which we knew before getting here. The food was definitely worth it. I heard that there is almost no wait time during the week. Would... More

I really don't understand why people gush over this place. It's good, but it isn't 2 hour wait good. It isn't even 1 hour wait good. If you can get in quickly, you'll enjoy the food. Fortunately, my sister got in line early and I arrived right before they called our name. And my pancakes were good. I'd even say... More

We went for breakfast on vacation. When we arrived we were told it would be a 20 minute wait, it was 70 minutes. Once inside, our drink order was taken and arrived quickly. The food and service after that was beyond horrible. An example is I ordered a skillet, with 3 eggs, ham and 'crispy hashbrowns with green onions on... More

Great breakfast with a vast choice on the menu. It's always busy but packed on the weekend, although it is definitely worth the wait.
