The staff here are not helpful and in a few cases downright rude. In addition, they charge you for chips and salsa! And, it's not a trivial amount either. Food is simply average. There aren't many places to eat in Waunakee and this is sadly...More

Boy was I surprised to see a good breakfast restaurant in Waunakee. This is not a Ho-Hum bacon and eggs joint, but a real variety of good breakfasts at reasonable prices. Pancakes with ice cream and honey? Yep, I had to try it and it...More

The staff is never very friendly here. We quit going for this reason. The food was good and there was plenty of it.
