Fantastic food! Claudia was a fabulous server. Friendly, thoughtful and extremely efficient. She made great recommendations and we were not disappointed.

We had the Grizz split between our three children, which was more than enough. I had the SCRAMbowl which was waaaaaay too much food. It was amazing! My wife had the Southern Scramble which she truly enjoyed.

We will definitely return again and again.

Portions are large for sure. Had a basic turkey club which was good but turkey was dry. Good service served timely. Ample on site parking.

I am in love with breakfast here! Eggs are cooked perfectly, the toast isn't dry and service is wonderful.

I ordered to go online. Just bacon eggs hash browns biscuit. $11. When you order online it asks for a tip before you even check out! Why would I add a tip before I even got there?? As it turned out I'm glad I didn't though the waitress was nice. Picked up the order. The biscuit was large not huge, but not what I was expecting didn't look like a biscuit more of a Hawaiian roll. Eggs scrambled fine. Hash browns not overly large but only brown on one side. Bacon- the best bacon you'll have is the claim on the website! 5 slices of over cooked dried salty dried bacon. I guess bacon jerky? Plus they put your to go order in aluminum foil in a styrofoam box so can't nuke that in the microwave. And no Togo silverware. Or napkins. Or anything just your foam foil box. I'll say this place is overrated imo. While okay not better than a IHOP or dennys. Just more expensive. Maybe I should try lunch? Maybe. I guess maybe I'm not in the know or something..

The biscuits are beastly, but bland as all get out! You need butter and jam to choke it down!
The hash browns are fabulous, but who can screw those up!? Service was phenomenal, very friendly staff.
