I don’t usually write a lot of these reviews,,, but I have been very disappointed the last few visits. I’ve been coming on the weekends whenever we get the taller waitress ,, we never get our food at the same time,, one plate at a...time. So when I’m done eating last person is just getting their food. So annoying. Why not use a tray so we can eat together. The other lady uses a tray. Another thing,, they got smaller plates so the presentation of the food is awful The food is falling off the side of the plate as u are eating it. Who ever is running that kitchen should be embarrassed.More

My wife and I visited for breakfast. We were immediately seated and the menu arrived. We ordered the standard breakfast of bacon and eggs, replete with shredded hashbrowns. Twas then we were hit with the bad news. Shredded hashbrowns have been discontinued. Albeit it was...a good breakfast, our patronage has been, likewise "discontinued!" Smittys continue shredded.More

On short notice we decided to take out 4 grandchildren (all under 11) to Monica’s for breakfast. The staff were able to get us seated right away and quickly interacted with the kids in a fun way. All the kids items were reasonably priced and...perfect portions for the kids. I had the big breakfast and my wife had the avocado toast which she loved. When we visit Grade Prairie we will be back for sure.More

My daughter and I were on a long road trip through Canada, and we found the website and menu for this restaurant a few hours before we got there. We stopped for lunch, and we are so glad we did! We were at the tail...end of the lunch crowd, and we felt like the server went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! Her name was Misty, and she was wonderful! She helped us decide between several options on the menu, she was attentive and lots of fun, even though she was extremely busy. We felt like we met a new friend by the time we left. The food was great, and the decor was really nice. A delightful stop on a long journey!More

This restaurant served a free hot breakfast if you stayed at the Stanford Inn & Suites. You got your choice of eggs, bacon or sausage or ham, hash browns, and toast. Some of the items in this breakfast tended to be a bit undercooked on...certain days, depending on who the cook was. Overhard eggs were runny. Hash browns were mushy. One waitress was overly friendly.More

I cannot remember the servers name, she was incredible. We walked in shortly after 2pm in which the dining room was supposed to be closed, there was one other table waiting for their food. The waitress told us normally we are closed however I have...some tiding up to do so go ahead and order. She was so pleasant and made sure our coffee cups were filled. The meal was delicious and hot. Definitely would reccomend this establishment even for families.More

I'm am from BC and had to come to Grand Prairie for medical reasons and we stayed in the Stanford Inn. Monica's Family restaurant is the restaurant that is on the property. As soon as we walked in the door the server greeted us with...a smile and let us pick our own seat. She was by our table instantly and was extremely friendly. As we've never been here before she made some suggestions of what was really good on the menu, and let me tell you that was one of the best breakfasts I had in a long time. It wasn't even 10 minutes and we had our order. We didn't even have our second bite in and she did a quality check. Our coffee cups were never empty and she made us feel so welcome. The young ladies name was Misty and if you ever get a chance plz plz head over there and let Misty treat you like family. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Huge shout out to Misty 💙💜💙💜💙More

We went for breakfast to Monica's on Monday, September 20, 2021. The Egg's Benedict was disappointing as the Hollandaise sauce was a pale yellow sauce with no flavour. Order was one Eggs Benedict and second order was sausage and eggs. Breakfast for two with two...coffees was almost $50. When paying with credit card, options for a tip were from 15% to 30%. This is not the United States where minimum wage is far lower than in Canada and in many states, waitresses and waiters receive far less than minimum wage at $2.50 per hour. When you pay for your meal in many states, you are not paying for service hence it is appropriate to pay for service by tipping. Here in Canada, we very much dislike intimidating tactics to extract a large tip from the customer. Having the credit card machine set for 15% to 30% is intimidating and the inference is that those rates are the expectation of the service staff. If waiting staff were being paid less than $5 per hour, the prices on the menu would be much lower. In reality, $49 for two breakfasts is paying for the service and is an expensive breakfast to start with. We will not be returning to Monica's as the food and facility do not justify the high prices.
