We waited about 30 mins for a table. Our server was swamped but friendly. The food was Delicious. Don't go when you're in a rush though.

We tried this for a late lunch one day. I was pleased with the variety and unique menu items. I don't find many places I'm able to order Eggs Benedict, but this place has 3 varieties: a standard, a Mexican one, and a country style. I got the regular and it was pretty good. I liked that it came with... More

This wasn't their finest moment. Waiter asked what side I wanted. Didn't realize the pancakes on the menu were a side when I said fruit. The home cooked fried potatoes were still hard. Omelets are made different. Eggs Benedict order really weird. When asked what level cooking for the eggs, said medium. They came out over medium like literally fried... More

Incredibly great place for breakfast and lunch. Best bacon on the planet!! Eat there often and food is delicious and serve is better than at most places. If at peak times, expect a lengthy wait, but it is worth the wait.

My wife and I had breakfast here. This was our first time to eat here. Restaurant Seating area is very large and plenty of parking. Must try one of the oven baked omelets, they are very good. All portions are very large. Will definitely come back.

Good breakfast place. Quantities are big and the menu covers everything you could want. Pancakes and waffles are not heavy. Omelets are fluffy and rich. Coffee is really good too. The only negatives will be the long waiting line, always and slow service. Go with time and relax, you will definitely enjoy the food.

I thought I had eaten good pancakes before, but this was a real shock to the system. The combination of flavors is insanely delicious. You just have to experience it for yourself. The light dusting of powdered sugar and sprinkled pecans, combined with the wonderful maple syrup is simply divine. Service is great, and even with large crowds they can... More

Service was very friendly and quick. Food was hot and served promptly. Our bacon was great, the eggs were good, and my son really enjoyed his chocolate chip pancakes. The orange juice was fresh squeezed. My only complaint (and this is true for competitors like IHOP), is that the prices are pretty high for simple breakfast fare. They have a... More

This is a nice breakfast place with a few unique items on the menu, such as a Dutch Baby, which was excellent. The corned beef hash I couldn't finish. It was too salty. But overall, a pleasant meal. Friendly service. I'd give them another chance.

I ordered strawberry pancakes that were pretty good, with strawberry syrup and whipped cream. Also ordered bacon which was very thick and pretty good. Full stack of pancakes ranges from $7-$10 and the Original Pancake has a lot of space, good food at a decent price. Good service from our waiter.
