This is a very clean, well run restaurant. The staff is very friendly. Also popular so you may have a wait but it's worth it. I always get the blueberry pancakes. They are a multi grain batter' very tasty & healthy too. Just two because they are so big & fluffy. Other family members have had omelets and been satisfied too.

We have eaten at the original in Fairborn Ohio and this as well. Both are busy and great. You pay a little more but the food is excellent. Service may be slow when busy but they ate focused. Great family place or a place to take a loved one.

Food is rarely hot and is quite bland. I think it is too expensive for the quality of the food. It takes me 45 minutes to get there, so I may have too high expectation because of the investment in time.

First Watch is a chain restaurant, but good food every time. Typical eggs, pancakes, etc and lunch salads and sandwiches. Sometimes a wait. Coffee is good.
