This place has good breakfast for a chain. The food was fresh. This was my second visit here and both times the service was a little slow.

This restaurant is literally across the street from the Holiday inn Vancouver Wa. We went over and had dinner. A typical family restaurant that would cater to all tastes, my wife had fish, I had a hamburger. The service was good and the food was good. This is not fine dining but certainly good food at a reasonable price.

It is another chain restaurant about the same as an iHop or Denny's. Prices are average nothing special about menu or food

Better than Denny's but not by Much! I'm not sure what to say other than I abhor this style food. I occasionally get dragged, kicking and screaming, into one of these greasy spoons under the agreement that someone else is willing to pick up the tab.

Had a nice breakfast. Attentive wait staff. While it was busy, people were seated fairly quick with little to no wait.

We arrived at 5 PM on a Tuesday evening. I don't think there was a table of customers throughout the facility. Parking lot and exterior were extremely clean.

I was staying at Staybridge Suites and wasn't super hungry, but needed a meal. I was able to walk across the street and find a light meal on their local menu.

I liked that we were able to walk right in on a Saturday morning and get seated with a group of 7 without a long delay. They have a great variety and everybody was happy. They offer German pancakes, potato pancakes, and good old fashion buttermilk pancakes. Biscuits and gravy were pretty good too.
