“It's ok. ”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

It's ok. Not bad for a chain. Food is rather greasy and heavy. Service was good. Very nice people. The coffee is terrible though. Dinner-level.

“Used to be awesome”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

When this restaurant first opened, the portions were great and the food was awesome. Now, the portions are ridiculous for the prices they charge and it is not as good as it once was in the past. I used to always bring business clients from out of town there to eat as it was a nice option for brunch or lunch. Even one of my clients noticed the change in portions and quality. Needless to say, I no longer take anyone there now. Overpriced!!!

“Alright....I guess”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

So I went there recently since going often a few years ago. I was hoping to see a few girls who were my favorite waitresses -- but I think they've moved on the better things. Anyway, I got the Eggs Benedict and the food quality and the flavor have gone down in recent years I guess. The food was just -- OK -- that's all. I also noticed the lack of diversity among the servers. Everyone mostly looks the same if you know what I mean. I'm a Caucasian male. I'm just saying -- there's no flavor lol. I'd like to see some change before I start frequenting there again.

“Delcious Pancakes”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

My coworkers and myself eat here fairly often for lunch. The service is prompt and accomodating for special orders. They have delicious pancakes and several low calorie choices too. My husband likes the bison burger. I usually get one to take home to him when we go there.
