I've eaten breakfast here for many years, and the food is very good. The portions are good also. The new owner is also trying some new items, and they've been good too.

Met with the guys before a golf outing, they open early and put on a good spread. Good coffee and the eggs were cooked perfectly

Had the eggs benedict, perfectly cooked. Not a huge fan of the home fies, which I like crispier, and the seasoning was not to my taste (?hungarian paprika and onion powder perhaps). Good service.

Had a big, delicious Swiss and Bacon Burger. Debie the waitress is exceptional. Breakfast is served all day and always is delicious.

Dan's Place is where you want to go for a great breakfast and/or lunch! The price is right, the food is very tasty, and the wait staff are very accomodating, as is the chef! Although the restaurant is the unassuming, I would highly recommend Dan's to satisfy your breakfast or lunch hunger pangs!

Only place in the area that serves all day breakfast. The breakfast was okay, but the bacon was gross. Would only suggest if it is your last option.

The food Is regular food not incredibly favorable, and not too bland. It's a good place to get a bite to eat and a coffee. It seems to be mostly regulars who stop in. The service however is great, the staff are friendly and the ait for the food is not too long.

Nice diner type menu. Good place to meet a friend for breakfast or lunch. Try the eggs benedict for something special.

I live in the general area and have been here many times for breakfast. The food is always fresh and the omelets are terrific. The coffee is great and so are the staffers who work there. Ample parking always helps, especially on a Saturday morning.
