This restaurant has been around a long time! It had been a while since we had visited and we were pleasantly surprised by the recent updates and renovations. It's under new ownership and there have been many changes. We all ordered breakfast. Service was excellent - quick, friendly and personable. I asked to have my omelette well done, and that... More

Only open for breakfasts and lunches this family restaurant offers generous portions, good service and reasonable prices. The kitchen puts out delicious dishes with very little waiting. Bring the whole family.

Chose Dearborn Family Restaurant as our 2 teenage daughters could not remember eating there. We were able to get a table right away. Our server was very friendly and served our food promptly. My family can be a challenge to accommodate but we all ate a satisfying meal and left feeling happy and full.

Frequently pop in for breakfast. All the servers are friendly and efficient... always quick to offer and refill your coffee. The kitchen service is fast and the food is consistently very good!

You won't find it if you're from out of town unless you're really looking for it - it's tucked into a plaza. BUT when you find it, you'll find great food, good service and good prices. Great breakfast.

Located in a somewhat out of the way mall in Waterloo, this restaurant still has some loyal regulars. The breakfast is good ... and the special is well priced before 11:30am. Arrive later, and the lunch options become a better value. The main room is typically half-full, the second room, rarely occupied. Lunch is good. It is a simple menu,... More

Really good little spot to get breakfast and chat with friends. Not fine dining by any means and could use a good degreasing but the food was good and the prices were average. Try and have their polish sausage if you can. Its very tasty and homemade I believe?

Average is the best description for this restaurant. The breakfast is standard fare. I usually order a omelet. I have eaten here for a lunch a few times; the food usually arrived quickly. The staff is usually friendly and attentive.
