We decided to try brunch here since we like to have dinner here. The brunch menu is not too big. A lot of different flavored pancakes and lots of hash dishes. The portions are huge. We all were only able to finish half our meals.

People rave about this place but in all my visits I found it to be less than expected Tried apps and entrees and found them to be nicely presented but weak in the taste department Decided to try the burger and found it smothered with ingredients that gave me the impression they were covering up for something

There is an obvious common denominator in my tag line above that explains in a nutshell why Left Coast Kitchen deserves TripAdvisor's highest rating. The prices are at the higher end of 'reasonable,' however the portions are ample and non-restrictive discount coupons can be found in your local printed advertising. Booth seating is available in the front section of the... More

The menu has fresh, amazing choices. Everything is homemade with an excellent chef. The host was welcoming and made you feel at home. The restaurant itself is small. Even though it's well worth eating here because of the delicious food.

What can I say other than the Food is Excellent and the Owner Chris really cares about his customers. It does get crowed fast.

Went for brunch and had their Sneaky Pete which was really good. My 8 year old loved her Oreo cookie pancakes. It's bit on the higher price side for brunch but they usually have certificates you can buy for discounted price on Restaurant.com. It is popular so it usually sells out fast but they replenish them from time to time.

My favorite is the turkey wings, they are great. Always have a fun time here when I go. This is on my list of things to do when I'm visiting the area.

From the beers on tap to the turkey wings to the entrees everything is a winner! As soon as you walk in you see that the atmosphere is a great one. Everyone on staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The kitchen does a twist on even the most basic of dishes from the burgers to the chicken and waffles.... More
