Generally I like First Watch. The service is usually good. However, they boast fresh food and I know that isn't entirely true as I had the Traditional breakfast with potatoes and it has been obvious to me on several visits that the potatoes they serve have been processed and frozen. I went to the First Watch in Rocky River the... More

I have eaten at First Watch a number of times when visiting the Cleveland area. Fresh ingredients make their modern/traditional menu items many cuts above the average breakfast spot. A definite treat.

Great breakfast, great service and great coffee. But please fix the door closer on the entry door. It slams so hard behind you that someone is going to have a heart attack!!!! And if it happens to hit you, you're toast!

Great place for breakfast or brunch, lots of choices, moderately priced, good eats. Atmosphere is very nice, gets busy during early breakfast and around lunch time.

You may have to wait because of the popularity of the restaurant. They have a very interesting different type of menu and I suggest that you review their menu before going there. Their food was absolutely delicious and it's located in the heart of Crocker park. I strongly recommend that you try this whenever you visit Cracker Park

The first thing that catches your eye is the decor. Some decorator did a hell of a job here. You could wait a while and not be bored just looking at the way the place was put together. Friday morning about 8:00 AM. Got seated right away and the waitress, Brittany, was right there for the drink order. I wanted... More

We went on a Sunday morning( August 14) arriving at 10 AM. Told our wait would be 30-45 minutes. To their credit, they had coffee for waiting customers. A bit watery but passable. Table turn over was slow. It looked like one person was bussing tables. Reception staff, I think underappreciated the frustration of waiting patrons watching dirty tables slowly... More
