I would label the food at between 7 and 8 out of 10. The portions are huge and the prices are very reasonable. I have been there 3 times and I have never been able to finish my meal. The service is outstanding but it is very crowded and loud. I guess because there are so many young people there.

Amazing choice of breakfast originals and standard favorites, too. The cooks and servers never stop moving. Well worth the wait.

It's really good, from service to all food. It's a comfortable, busy, unpretentious place with large portions of stick to your ribs goodness. Enjoy!

After a visit to the beach we searched TA for a good place to eat a big hearty meal before taking the plane home. Found this and thought to give it a try as it had the best score in all it Jacksonville. The service was good, our waiter was funny and attentive. We were placed close to the kitchen,... More

Everything was just okay...from the service to the food. Nothing really stood out for me...tried the chicken biscuit with a side of cheese grits. Have had better and worse so this is a solid average rating.

Don't eat breakfast - just hold out for brunch at this place. EVERYTHING is fantastic, but we are partial to the pancakes, hashbrowns, and biscuits. Little ones love the chocolate chip pancakes. Long wait on Saturday mornings, but absolutely worth it. Enjoy!

You can always get a delicious meal (our favorite spot for breakfast), but it's always crowded, so wait times tend to be long. What is the deal with the pancakes? We got an order, and they were literally bigger than the plate. They did not fit in the plate! When we asked the waitress why, she said that the manager... More
