The restaurant is bright and inviting and the staff is very friendly and efficient. The 'crabby Benny' is excellent - two perfectly poached eggs perched upon two large crab cakes and drizzled in hollandaise sauce - accompanied by delicious home fries! Even the decaf coffee was great.

Such a varied and great breakfast menu! All was tempting, but settled on the Southern Biscuit and gravy with two eggs. Staff are always helpful and quick to offer suggestions should you become "stuck" on what to order. Thanks, Gang! Looking forward to our next visit!

Fresh and fast was my breakfast. Two huge blueberry pancakes and a veggie omelette made my day. Portions will satisfy all but death row inmates.

Maybe lunches too. Excellent omelets, hash, coffee, eggs over cooked perfectly. Real coffee, not dishwater. Friendly service. It doesn't look like an old fashioned diner from the outside, but it rings true.

Just wandered in for a brunch. The atmosphere of the place was warm and welcoming. Amber? the lady who served us was very friendly and helpful and we certainly enjoyed the food there. It was well prepared and very tasty.

I had some time to have lunch before a flight out of town, did some driving around on a Sunday and drove past it, noticed the cars in the lot and made a U-turn to go back to check it out. I'm glad we did, the service was fast and friendly, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the... More

Big menu. Enthusiastic and attentive staff. Nice to oldsters. Across the street from H.A.R.P (This is the landmark you need to find it.)

Went for brunch this morning with my 3 year old and waited an hour for our food to come out. When asked how much longer we were told the owner was out today. Guess the place has a hard time keeping up when the owner is out???? When my ordered medium cheeseburger came out rare I was more than disappointed... More

I've gone to the Gathering Ground several times with friends over the past year. Each time the food and service have been excellent. Our group rotates between three different locations for our monthly breakfasts, and this is by far the favorite. The restaurant is a bit out of the way and not well marked, but not hard to find if...
