We had eggs, hash browns, pancakes and turkey sausage. Everything was very good, except the English muffins were somewhat burnt. They had to redo them. The restaurant is close and typically no wait in the evening!

Our server took special care to make sure my daughter's dairy allergy was addressed. For me I had their amazing app pancake.
