Our breakfast was as good as expected. Coffee was OK. Service was OK. Prices were a little high. Not bad for a hangover. I need to eat something, breakfast. Except the prices make it undervalued. If you're in Athens it's worth a try before going to Bob Evans, just for its historical significance and Court Street location.

The food is always good but the facilities could be a little cleaner. It's a home cooked meal for a decent price. Parking is a problem but usually worth the hassle.

Cute little dinner in downtown Athens. Stopped here for a late dinner. The food was good as well as the milkshakes. They need to put new cushions on their booths though as they are tearing.

I went here with a large group of friends and it was alright, but not amazing. Overall the food was average, but at the price I paid, I expected much better quality. I could have stayed home and made my own meal that tasted much better and saved $20. The waiters did the bare minimum of their jobs and not... More

Stopped in for breakfast with our freshman grandson. Ordered typical plates: eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes. Everything was bountiful and delicious. Service was exceptional and the cost was very reasonable.

Great for breakfast or brunch on weekends. I tend to get the eggs Benedict (without exception) and it has been a good call unless someone new is cooking. Good atmosphere with friendly staff and history. Go early on weekends before the students start staggering in for palliative cures to nurse their hangovers and commiserate about lost opportunities last night.

Easy walk from OU. Took daughter for breakfast. Very good location on court st in middle of shops and bars. We had to wait about 15 min even though there were 4 empty tables because they hadn't been cleared yet. Not sure if they were short staffed or this is normal. Food is what you'd expect. Good greasy breakfast. Will... More

Three of us ate there and two of us tried a chicken salad entree, as suggested by the waiter as they are known for their chicken salad. My chicken salad club sandwich was very good; my daughter's chicken salad was not. My son's hamburger was very good. We had saved room for dessert, but they no longer bake their own... More

Stopped for breakfast, nothing special. Coffee was hot. Mostly typical diner food, came complete with flies. We had the waitress leave a couple of menus so we could swat at the flies. None of the six of us cleaned their plate. Burp!
