We were looking for something new. Tried many breakfast style places. We were served, greeted with warm and friendly smiles. Place was stayed packed. But we got in within 10 mintues, waitress was awesome and patient, we never felt rushed. Now it will be my go to place for breakfast. Thank you it made our morning :)

Breakfast was excellent. Servers name was Shawn. He did a fantastic job. The oj is fresh squeezed and delicious. They move a lot of people in and out but we did not feel rushed at all. The restrooms are clean and very nice. Well maintained and fully stocked.

I stopped here for a pancake. I figured with pancake in their name this was going to be the best pancakes ever Service was good and a nice atmosphere The food came out very fast my eggs and hashbrowns were piping hot but unfortunately my pancake was ice cold. The butter wouldn't melt and the syrup would barely sink in.... More

We have recently been here for "breakfast at lunch time" as well as a lunch, both were really very good. The people who work here are super friendly, the coffee cup or soda glass keeps being refilled. It really is a great family restaurant. I just wish it was open later than 3 PM. It is tucked back away from... More

We found this restaurant out in error. It is tucked back with several other businesses. We were glad we tried it out as it had a good menu and the service was great!

I feel stupid as i have lived 2 miles from this place for 1 1/2 years and never been there. I thought it was just a Denny's wannabe. Then when i sat down for breakfast and saw the menu, that was again my impression. I was very wrong. This is, at least for breakfast, much higher quality and actually lower... More

We enjoyed a weekday breakfast at Maxfield's, and we came away with a new 'go to' place. Maxfield's opens at 6 AM, which for those of us with early industry jobs is a good send. The wait staff is old school friendly, right out of Mel Diner in all the good ways. Made the experience feel more like home. Service... More

The food was spectacular, arrived at our table very quickly after ordering and our waiter George was amazing! By far, he was the best waiter in recent memory. He checked on us often but not too often, when another server overfilled my coffee cup by accident, he immediately brought me a fresh cup. He offered great suggestions (can't go wrong... More

If volume is your sole criterion for a good meal, you won't be disappointed. However, if you're looking for food that has taste, or something a little different, don't bother. My pancakes were pale blonde and flavorless without loads of synthetic syrup. My bacon was the size, shape, and taste of salty shoe leather. Hash browns? Yuck.
