Small and close quarters, but friendly service and good food. My kids love the chocolate chip waffles.

It used to be that I cringed at the name Waffle House. All I could think of was noise, grease, cigarette smoke, and rude waitresses. Well either things have changed or they just do a better job here. No more of any of that. Well maybe just a little grease. We have found that when we want a fairly quick... More

Yes it reeks of the most polite and helpful staff. The waitress did everything she could for me, but eat my delicious Pecan Waffle. Helpful, friendly and nicest people ever!! I will be going back.

We had a great experience at this establishment! They were very busy late at night, on a holiday, but were accommodating and the food was fresh and very good.

as the subject line says, sometimes all you crave is simple greasy spoon food, and the Wafflehouse rarely fails to satisfy that craving. nothing fancy, no frills, but you get what you came for, and 24 hours a day at that!

Showed up to empty restaurant which, for me, was ok. Coffee was great, lije always. Service (Molly) was pretty good. Eggs were cold and hashbrowns were under cooked. Waffle and bacon were spot on but didn't get to eat my toast because I was not given jelly.

I had been here about 3 years ago. It was fine then, and it's still a good place for a quick breakfast or a burger at a decent price. The place was clean, the waitress was efficient and friendly. I "special ordered" my eggs and they were happy to comply. Their waffles were good, hence their name "Waffle House." The... More

The food is good, the coffee is about the best I've ever had. Very reasonable prices. Service is quick and just the right amount of service if you need something and then leave you alone to enjoy your food and your companions, they don't linger at your table and try to schmooze you for a bigger tip, which I always...

I don't know what keeps this chain in business. Food is trash at high cost. Hash browns are simply boiled shredded potatoes warmed in oil on the grill. The waitress never even wiped the tables or counter down between customers. Some just knock the dirt off the plastic menu mats. I was here a week after the 10" snow fall... More

this is not at all what I thought, I thought it was like a huddle house, stop there with a crying baby(grandchild) she was very hungry, they don't even have a French fry in this place & the food was not at all good & over priced !
