Good service, good waitress. Training going on and some some of the ingredients were very small... hash browns were loaded but very little in them. Need some work..

I received the worst service I have EVER received (I ended up calling the police) @530 in the morning while they were dead slow. I waited 15 minutes to get something to drink was looked at like I was an alien while asking to have my onions cooked well and then I gave the random server 5 dollars that ACTUALLY... More

The grits that came with my breakfast had to be several days old. They were hard and had some unknown substance in them. When I pointed it out to the waitress, she said it was probably melted plastic. It was the nastiest meal I have ever been served.

Having noted some negative comments since my last review here, we decided to stop in and see for ourselves. Friday morning staff with the exception of one person was a complete turnover from our last meal in April. Service was quick and efficient. Food was served hot. Our waitress was very attentive to not let the coffee run out. Grits... More

Be warned. The only chef who knew how to cook has left this location and transferred to Destin. The senior waitresses have also moved on, either to Destin or elsewhere. What remains at this Shalimar restaurant is nothing but disappointments and frustration.

Have eaten here over the last 12 years when in town. Always reliable. Staff changes and they have remained well trained and efficient. Tipical Waffle House.

Service was excellent, food was good and hot although didn't care for the jalapeño biscuits. Fiesta omelet was really good as were the loaded hash browns. Grits were too thick. Our server Kathy was most excellent.

There are good WH's and bad WH's, but this one is laughable. Maybe it's the Saturday chef that's the problem. I can only imagine it's the lack of competition in Shalimar that keeps this place open. Zero attempt to minimize the noise from the open kitchen area made for impossible conversation. Food is overcooked and comes in waves, rather than... More

It's a WH! The same good food that's made quickly so you can get in and get out. I've eaten at this particular one several times and we left full and happy.

Waffle House has always been kinda hit or miss. My last visit to this store ended with my order being 50/50 in quality. The waitress did a fine job and the atmosphere was the same as any WH.
