I discovered Gilchrist about 5 years ago, and I'm so glad I did. I truly enjoy the huge--yet light and fluffy pancakes. The prices are very reasonable, and the service has always been prompt. I prefer the ambiance of the Gardner's Basin location--but the food...More

We had eggs, homefries, egg sandwich, and hot cakes. Home fries didn't come peppers and onions which was great. Nothing was too oily either. Staff was friendly and coffee was delicious.

First of all, nothing was bad at all about my experience here. Service was fine, food was fine. We were sat at a table between the door and the women's bathroom, but understandable cause the place was very busy. I just don't understand the popularity...More
