“Solid 3.5 Star Breakfast Place. Over-Priced.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Nothing to complain about. Nothing to rave about. That sums up John O'Groats.

The menu has a lot of variety. But the prices are on the high side compared to other casual breakfast places.

On the plus side, they have Gluten Free Bread. For which they made into French Toast for me. And it turned out pretty good - a little dense, but that's to be expected because of Gluten Free Bread being chewier.

The service was pleasant enough and the waitress kept my iced tea glass full.

“Never again”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Imagine a pub lunch place without potatoes? That's what the waitress opened up with today. Some nonsense about a late potato delivery. I thought they were running a comedy hour. So, imagine my reaction when I asked for the crab melt only to be told that they haven't served it in months. Duh--then take if off the menu.

Humorless, incompetently managed dump. I will never darken it's door again.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Nice cozy place with good service. The coffee is fresh, hot and robust. Healthy multi-grain toast and one of the best omelets I have ever had! We are going to stop in here any time we are in the area.

“Good, traditional breakfasts”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

There may be a line and you may have a short wait, but this great if you're looking for a traditional American breakfast.
