We just left this restaurant after waiting for over 20 minutes just to get a glass of water. The server said he would be back but never returned. We saw him taking orders around us but never ours. The straw that broke the camels back was when the hostess told him we where waiting and he gave her a sideway. look like "and". At that moment, I decided to leave. When down the street to Sophie's House of Pancakes for better service.

This place has the best pancakes. I service is always good and the food is great as well. My daughter tried the oumpkin pancakes, they were topped with pecans, cinnamon and whipped cream. When I tell you they were delicious, you must simply try them. If you're in the area, you have to stop in for breakfast!!

so when you post a sign on your hostess stand that states ALL members of your party must be present to be seated - one would think A L L members of your party M U S T be presaent - OH NO Not if Annie and her co partner in bad customer service Mikey/ Mickey are there ==== even on a busy day when many are waiting I watched as a customer said very clearly to Annie - "no we'll wait to be seated my brother isn't here yet "and Annie say QUOTE "That's OK you can anyway and off they went to a table - after other complete parties are waiting to be seated Gee Ya think this helps table turn ? NO maybe that's why tables don't turn and there is a wait Could also be all the empty tables that aren't cleaned or ready for the next customer Could also be all the squished in tables for 2 that the waitress Eddies states NOBODY wants to sit there they are so close that's why you have to wait so long for a table in my section AND she is right those tables are so close you are on top of the person next to you... POOR POOR POOR all very poor management NO thanks The smirk and Cheshire grin on Annie and MIckey make me lose my appetite

We have been going to this restaurant for years. We know the owners as our son use to play baseball with their son and their kindness and hospitality are transcended through their employees. Our favorites are the pancakes, quiche and the omelets. You would be hard pressed to find a fluffier and tastier omelet. My personal favorite is the spinach and feta omelet served with a mushroom sauce. The flavor combination is a real treat. I have not found anything like it anywhere else I have eaten - DELICIOUS and you can choose between toast or their amazing pancakes - a breakfast dream! Whenever we have company from out of town, we make sure we bring them there to enjoy the myriad of breakfast choices. We have tried many of the items on the menu and have never been disappointed.
