The food and the service was horrendous. Will never return. They didn't even know what was on the menu.

I've been to quite a few Waffle Houses across the country and this was so clean it was sterile! And after dining inside for a half hour, I didn't smell like a short order cook (added bonus!). My food arrived promptly and accurately. My server oddly drew a cross and wrote "a Christian" on the back of my check, but... More

You are in for the typical Waffle House experience. Yes, it will be relatively inexpensive and greasy, but it is what you expect. Service is always quick and helpful, again a typical Waffle House expectation.

My last meal in Carlisle before heading home. I quickly decided to grab a bite before the three hour drive home. Food was good, service was too. Typical Waffle House fare. I enjoyed my meal despite the annoying other diners. Worth the stop, you'll enjoy if this is what you are looking for.

I have been to many Waffle houses before. The food was perfect. The morning cook did a great job. The waitress was so so. I know that it is hard work being a waitress, however she could work a little harder on appearance and checking up on us.

Food was ok but the service could be better. I hate to be one to nitpick but our waitress I think forgot we were there. Asked for glass of water twice and then went up to counter to get it myself. Never offered or checked to refill my coffee.
