“Inconsistent and opiionated rude servers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2008

To be fair everytime I've been there for breakfast its been pretty good.
Last visit Sat 6th Sept wasnt so great. Ordered the full House. Pancake was impressively large but over cooked on the outside and doughy and tasteless on the inside. Scrambled eggs were over cooked and dry. Coffee service was slow too.
This would have been ok, one out of 12 experiences being below average BUT the cutting rudeness of the tall blond guy serving was uncalled for and not really the best service approach he could have used. He was removing my mostly full plate and was going to leave without asking why 2/3 of my plate was full. He had the bill in hand and was about to leave it when I said that I wasnt pleased with my pancake/eggs ..and why. He told me pretty much that my opinion was not his and walked off with the bill. He returned with a bill reduced by a few dollars and with a deft move , no apologies or any kind of acknowledgement. pretty rude IMO.
Probably wont think of going there again for awhile and probably wont go there if I can think of somewhere else thats has better customer service.
