Went to Baldie's for an early breakfast. The special that morning was three eggs, choice of bacon or sausage, hash browns, and toast for $8.25. How can you go wrong? There are still bargains in the world, and Baldie's comes through with friendly service. This place is a throw back to days gone by. Give it a try. I would... More

how do you get a ton of food in a very good price fast friendly service hard to get in Sunday's Saturday mornings but the rest of the time it's worth the wait. the chicken-fried steak is outstanding and it needs two plates they're so big.

Great neighborhood restaurant! We've been going to Baldie's for many years now and the food is consistently excellent with huge portions. As good as the food is, the service is even better. Always friendly and attentive waitstaff make you feel at home. If you're looking for fancy, this is not your place but if you want really good food in... More

Great breakfast, plentiful and crisp thick bacon done to perfection as is the whole breakfast. Great coffee and always filling your cup. Wonderful service, fast and helpful with a smile. Comfort food at its best.

Try Baldie's breakfast specials. You can't go wrong. The weekend special was three eggs, hash browns, toast, and your choice of bacon or sausage for $8.25. How can you go wrong? But this is just one example. They make an excellent hot turkey sandwich, meatloaf, or liver and onions. This is what you expect of American comfort food, and based... More

We came for lunch before an appointment in the area and we were not disappointed. We waited not too long for a table and were ushered to our seats. We passed tables of appetizing food. I had my standard morning out meal--Joe's special (eggs with spinach, ground beef, onions, and sometimes mushrooms. In addition to looking nice, it tasted delicious.... More

The minestrone soup was incredible delicious and hot. The spices and mixture of fresh vegetables and noodles were amazing. But there was more to the meal which was only good but definitely not superb. The stuff pepper had an excellent sauce and was topped with melted cheese. The portion was huge but the entire meal was only barely warm. Also... More

There's a bit of a wait for a dining booth, but they serve a full plate so prepare to take some leftovers if you want to have dessert. I like that they have great Bleu cheese dressing for their dinner salad and with a nice glass of wine it got me prepared for a great meal. I hear their breakfasts... More
