I have had breakfast here several times. The food is always very tasty and the portions are big. The service is very attentive and very helpful. The restaurant is clean, however it is little older and could use some refreshing.

We were there for breakfast. The service was fast and friendly. The food was delicious and the servings were large! I had the Popeye Scrambler which had plenty of bacon, spinach, tomatoes, and Mozzarella cheese. It was cooked perfectly!

There was free breakfast available at our hotel, but the reviews were really good for Gail’s, and it was only 5 minutes away, so we opted to try it. Definitely a wise decision! We were greeted by friendly staff and offered a choice of booth,...More
