Ate breakfast here with my daughter. We were seated right away. We were greeted warmly. Restaurant was very clean and neat. They have an extensive menu. Loved the Cajun home fries. Will be going back to try one of their omelets!

We recently went here on a Sunday around 11:00 for brunch. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated, and sat outside on the balcony (it was 85 degrees outside and there are no fans on the balcony). Ultimately the food was not worth the...More

Hey there Ranger7791- I'm so sorry for your bad experience with us. I will stand behind our policy of waiting until the entire party is present to seat you. It sounds to me like some of the empty seats you saw were probably for the...More

We got a late start to the day so we decided to have a little brunch. We look around and decided to give Grumpy's a try. I'm glad we did. The menus selection is quite large and seems to have a bit for all. I...More

This was a busy place the morning that we visited, but well worth the wait. They have coffee available while you wait for your table and there is plenty of artwork adorning the walls to entertain you. The menu is varied and should satisfy everyone....More

We went on a Sunday brunch morning and while it was busy, the staff was friendly and the food was fast and delicious! I definitely recommend the Cinnamon Apple Walnut French Toast 👌👍🏼!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Do they have parking or is it street parking only?
9 May 2017|
Response from Julie K | Reviewed this property |
They have a small parking lot next to the building. Most of the time you can find parking there but sometimes if it is really busy you may have to street park.
Does anything come with the sandwiches?
