Decided to make the best of jury duty and try local restaurants. This was on day two for me and it didn't disappoint. I got the Cajun chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. Loved every bite. Service was okay, not bad but just not amazing.

They have breakfast and lunch thru 2 pm or so. It is always just OK. Sometimes treated like waitpersons are in rush when it is busy, like "chop chop", make your order. Ordered an expensive breakfast sandwich "to go" one morning not long ago, and that's all it was a fried egg and some ham, no side of hashbrowns or... More

Sorry we did not meet your expectations. So the readers are aware our standard breakfast sandwich is 4.50 with your choice of bread, egg, meat and cheese (American or cheddar.) The breakfast sandwiches are not served with any sides unless ordered separately. Pleas email me at gatewaygrille@gmail.com so that we may try and make it up to you if you... More

No frills breakfast, but that's exactly what breakfast should be. It's basic, but good, hearty food. Friendly service.

For some unknown reason, I have gone here more than once; perhaps because I did not believe how truly bad it was the last time. Well, the last time was the last time. Grilled ham and cheese with NO ham. They forgot. Sent it back. Did I get a 'new' grilled ham and cheese. No siree. They just opened the... More

Sorry for your ham and cheese sandwich not be to your liking. I wished you said something to the server so we could had made it right. Our oatmeal is cooked to order on the stove, it is not packaged. Sorry again, I am sure the Lafayette will take good care of you. They have a very good breakfast as... More

After such a terrible experience at Rheinblick the night before, it was so refreshing to eat here for breakfast! The waitress was lovely and greeted us warmly, she took our orders correctly, and the food came out from the kitchen very quickly. Their breakfast menu was very balanced, I thought. They had several more creative dishes (like a cereal-crusted french... More

It is refreshing that a "mom and pop" place in my area can be so good! Excellent and friendly staff. The family and I went at a busy time and were still served fast and attended to frequently (with drink requests). Staff was very patient and friendly with my young children, which was greatly appreciated! On top of all that... More

We stooped in this morning, Sunday 8/21 for a quick breakfast. We arrived at 11:40, and the place was busy. We were acknowledged around 11:45 and told it would be a wait even though there were dirty tables that could have been cleaned and used. Around 11:56 they finally cleaned the tables and split them up to seat us. We... More

jon w, Owner at Gateway Grille, responded to this review

Sorry for your experience. Just so you are aware 30 to 45 minutes is typical during a Sunday rush and letting staff catch up by not seating you immediately is also normal. I am not sure what the server said to you regarding our bacon but I apologize if it wasn't to your liking. More

for a home cooked meal it's the greatest.Unlike some other places that give you pre-fab you receive the fresh cooked meal in a very timely matter..The staff is very friendly and make everyone feel at home..If you want 5 minute service on pre-fab go to a drive thru..For homecooked Meals with a smile this IS your Best Stop.

My husband and I came for breakfast on Sunday morning. We had been here in the past and it was decent. Not this time. We arrived at 1045 am, food finally arrived at 1133 am. He had a Reuben with fries, I had a Belgian waffle, nothing special. They were busy, but not well organized. No apolgy, just excuses. Servers... More

Sorry that you were not happy with your breakfast or the 30 minute wait for your food to arrive after you ordered. We cook everything to order and on Sundays we are very busy. Sometimes things aren't perfect for various reasons, sorry we didnt meet your expectations. More
