Full City never disappoints. Great hash offerings, my husband says the burgers are The Best in town. Sad that they are no longer open for dinner- food is always good quality and often very creative.

Full City has changed through out the years and it is at it's best right now. The food is so much better than it was two years ago. The menu is unique and also has some classic breakfast foods as well....I would highly recommend and it's not too expensive.

This is a fun place to go for breakfast/lunch/dinner with family, friends or for business. Always a fun and quaint atmosphere. Great menu specialty items to try! You can always stop in for coffee and a muffin too. Easy parking.

You gotta look for it but once you find it you'll be happy. Diverse menu and tasty food. Cassandra was attentative and food was nicely presented. Looked like a local's favorite but you need to try it.

I have eaten several times at the restaurant and on every visit I have never been disappointed. I get the pot brewed hot tea that is delicious. The food is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you are a foodie I highly recommend this restaurant.

I have eaten at this place several times over the years where the food is fresh, consistently well prepared and the service is good. I ordered an Iced Tea and the Salmon Citrus Salad and I was pleasantly surprised when the server asked how I would like the fish cooked (well done to rare), I chose medium rare. The tea... More

We enjoyed excellent service and a very good lunch. The Tuna Bahn Mi was ordered without the sandwich roll so wasn't too filling, but was very tasty. The tuna had a good flavor and accompanying arugula, cilantro and peppers were dressed with a pleasing sauce. I would recommend Full City at lunch (can't speak about other meals) for efficient friendly... More

I have been to Full City on several occasions. The quality of the food is always fresh and often the dishes have a unique spin. So I find the dishes tasty and interesting. The slightly higher prices are justified in my opinion because the entrees are bot just an ordinary "2 eggs over easy" type of thing. And I really... More
