I ordered the roast beef sandwich which was okay. I haven't been here in awhile, but won't rush back. I feel that the selections were less than usual.

This restaurant serves breakfast and lunch and seems to be centered on healthy choice menu items. However, I was able to get some chocolate chip pancakes which were excellent. Friends we were with are vegetarian and found many items on the menu that they enjoyed. What disappointed me was that there was no hamburger on the lunch menu. Apparently, it's... More

I eat lunch here frequently for a reason. Great service and good food!! Prices are reasonable too. Very impressed with how attentive the employees are, I can't say enough good things about them. Other restaurants in the area should send their servers here to take lessons...

The hostesses were unsure of wait times, and a manager only made the confusion more confusing (yes, it was that weird), but once we got things cleared up and got our seats things went smoothly. Our server, Kelly, was fantastic. Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We were served quickly and the food was plentiful and well presented. Two orders of blueberry... More

I experienced First Watch years ago and loved it then. When the one opened on Mcgregor in The Design Center we were ecstatic! You can't beat their breakfast and their juices (especially the Kale Tonic) are fantastic. The service is always friendly and sometimes with a hug as a regular. The wait time for your order is sometimes a little... More

We frequent First Watch, but this visit was the worst service experience we have had at a First Watch in our town. We were shown to our table by the host. It took the waitress almost fifteen minutes to come to our table and request our drink order. Our drinks arrived, and it took almost twenty more minutes for her... More

The "chickichanga" and the quinoa lemon blueberry pancakes were delicious. Most of the rest of the meals were good, but nothing special. The breakfast for 4 adults was $74.
