“good, solid diner breakfast”

Knotty Pine Restaurant
Ranked #24 of 88 Restaurants in Front Royal
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We were driving around Front Royal looking for a breakfast spot and saw the Knotty Pine with cars parked in front -- a good sign. I absolutely LOVE when you can order everything you want for breakfast -- in the sizes you want. 1 egg over medium, cooked perfectly; corned beef hash with crispy edges, and pancakes or french toast in 1, 2, or 3 (so you can get the portion that suits your needs).

And what a bargain! Good solid diner food, in a real, old timey diner. Just what we wanted.

This is the kind of spot we like, no frills, kind of a step back in time. Friendly staff and good home cooking. $5 specials.

Someone recommended the restaurant for breakfast. It is a really old establishment that is in need of some remodeling, but we weren't there for the décor. We were just looking for a good breakfast before a long day of travel. We didn't get it. Six of us had breakfast and the best review was "just OK".

My only complaint when we tried this restaurant was smoking, but I found out we sat in the bar area and there is a restaurant area with no smoking on the other side! The pancake was huge and the food was good!

Don't insult my biscuits by only offering pre-packaged Shedd's Spread. I don't even want to know what was in that cup of pre-melted whatever to go on the pancakes. Really? If you have a menu that includes sausage gravy, you're obviously not concerned with being heart-healthy. I'll gladly pay a few cents more for the real deal. The ham steak was overly salty and the texture, leathery. Reviews that said the service - and the locals - were friendly were accurate, but that's where it ends. This is not the place for good, honest, down-home cookin', unless mom was a slouch.
