Restaurant offers the lounge, the restaurant indoors, and tables outdoors under umbrellas. We've eaten in all three areas. Well prepared and delicious meals. Good portions on servings. Bar was not as noisy as I thought it would be. Very pleasant staff, that seem to enjoy their work. Outdoors, we have always had good service. Some restaurants you get somewhat ignored,... More

Cute, cozy restaurant. Friendly service and very good food with big portions. It's strange however that the utensils are something you would find at discount stores!! Come on, Annette's, upgrade your utensils to go with the good image!!!

We postpone breakfast just so we can stop on our way to the beach. It is well worth the 85 mile wait. The food is very tasty and in large portions. Great coffee happily refilled. Service is always quick. Easy on/off the freeway and plenty of parking. Only draw back is lots of people know about this place so it... More

Love this place for breakfast - the portions are big and the food is very well prepared. Prices are spot on and I find the service to be fabulous. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that it's a bit on the noisy side as they have maximized the table space and there are a lot of... More

I don't see of get what all the hype is about this place. I have eaten here 3 to 4 different times and I have never gotten a great meal. I would say that is average at best.

I went a couple of months ago with my daughter and granddaughter and it was great, but I went on Valentine's Day with my wife and was disappointed. We had reservations, got there just before the rush, and they had a special menu for this day (with higher prices). My food was great, but my wife's Italian Cordon Bleu tasted... More

It's a popular destination, so be prepared to wait a few minutes during popular time periods. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly! It's a restaurant you can go with your significant other, or the entirely family - all in all a great place to stop and grab a bite.

It's a staple in our family. It's always good, the servers are quick and friendly, and you get more than enough to eat every time. Patio seating when the weather's nice. Recommend you try it. Be prepared to wait on weekends.

Excellent food. Humongous portions. Super nice people. You can't go wrong here. The wait seems like it's going to be a while, but they get people through pretty quick in my experience.

Annettes is located in the historic Kingwood Building. Originally built in 1928 to be a market place. The building has adopted many occupants through it's time. Annette has given the historic building the respect it deserves with a dramatic makeover inside and out. Many people still remember the old market place and can't believe this is the same building from way back when. Come dine with us in our modern, yet home style stmosphere, with friendly staff to make you feel right at home.
