Very good menu, service is good and it is family friendly. Took our 2 year old grandson and he fit right in. Really enjoyed the pancakes.

Stopped in at First Watch for lunch. Very busy with a steady flow. Good selection of breakfast and lunch options, salad bowls and sandwiches. Service was friendly end attentive. Quinoa bowl salads were great as was the ham & gruyere melt. Outdoor seating available.

This place has always been crowded but management needs to do better here. Many empty tables while people are waiting. Food is very average. It used to have distinctive flavors, now it's very generic.More

Food is decent but service is extremely poor. We waited 45 minutes even though there were numerous tables available. Management of this location is horrible. It makes me want to stay away from First Watch in the future. Sad because other locations are nice.More

To be fair, I've never been to a FW for lunch, but if breakfast is any indication, it would be great! Fresh food, open atmosphere, and great service. The tri-athlete omelet was delicious, as was the French toast & their multi-grain bread, which is wonderful....More
