Went for breakfast with a few friends. Had to wait about 15 minutes. The place was very busy. Food good.

Great place for breakfast or brunch, lots of choices, moderately priced, good eats. Atmosphere is very nice, gets busy during early breakfast and around lunch time.

You may have to wait because of the popularity of the restaurant. They have a very interesting different type of menu and I suggest that you review their menu before going there. Their food was absolutely delicious and it's located in the heart of Crocker park. I strongly recommend that you try this whenever you visit Cracker Park

The first thing that catches your eye is the decor. Some decorator did a hell of a job here. You could wait a while and not be bored just looking at the way the place was put together. Friday morning about 8:00 AM. Got seated right away and the waitress, Brittany, was right there for the drink order. I wanted... More

We went on a Sunday morning( August 14) arriving at 10 AM. Told our wait would be 30-45 minutes. To their credit, they had coffee for waiting customers. A bit watery but passable. Table turn over was slow. It looked like one person was bussing tables. Reception staff, I think underappreciated the frustration of waiting patrons watching dirty tables slowly... More

Very fun visit. Food is wonderful . Can put your name in on the app before you go so you don't have to wait. The only reason it wasn't 5 stars was it took a long time for the food to come out. Kids and adults loved the food.

The biggest surprise on our most recent visit was that the menu had been changed, with the most noticeable change to us that the cranberry nut pancakes were gone; we always found these to be excellent and were sad they were no longer available - not even as a special request (my wife decided on the blueberry pancakes, which seemed...

Thank you very much for all your visits, Jimmy. We're sorry that your wife's pancake was a bit light on the blueberries! That's not what you should expect, and we'll always be happy to whip up a new one when we make mistakes. We appreciate your feedback, and we hope you two will give us another try soon! More
