Description: Today, visitors from all over the world—English, German, French, Japanese—still come to Good Enough to Eat to enjoy classic American food. They sit side by side with Upper West Side “regulars,” enjoying wholesome, mouth-watering (and ample) plates such as Macaroni and Cheese, Lemon Parmesan Chicken, Pecan Trout, Caesar Salad, Sweet Potato Fries, the now legendary Meatloaf and Turkey Dinners, and Peach Pie with homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. The appetite for wholesome, authentic, traditional American food only seems to be growing – both here and in cultures across the globe. And we at The Restaurant Group still carry out Carrie Levin’s mission to satisfy that hunger at Good Enough to Eat.

No frills, easy catch up with a friend at this place.

High table for two against the wall, plenty of hooks to hang your things on.

Our waiter was quick and accommodating with coffee refills. I was partial to the bloody Mary’s ($9) spicy but good.

I ordered the Deep South ($12.50) which is a three egg scramble with biscuits and gravy. Let’s not forget the $6 side of bacon.

Happy with this place. Recommended if you’re looking for breakfast in the area.

Came here for breakfast. We were seated promptly and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We had the strawberry almond waffles and scrambled eggs, both were amazing! It's a short stroll over to Central Park, and in a lovely location just around the corner from the subway! Can't wait to come back!!

The pros-the food is fantastic. The cons-no reservations, long wait for a table seemingly any time of day and no place to wait inside. I am surprised that die hard New Yorkers are okay with this.

4 stars based on food alone!

Awful experience. We were told there would be a 30 minute wait - no problem. Then we were told we couldn't wait inside - Um..OK. So we waited outside under the awning - until they cam out and told us we couldn't wait under the awning. People were expected to stand on line - in line -cause they don't make a list of names - in the rain. We left and will NEVER go back - no matter what the food tastes like. Went next door to Zen Taco . Fabulous food and great staff. Go there instead.
