My partner and I visited for breakfast and it was nice enough. It's no iHop in terms of selection on breakfast, but the service is great and the selection for non-breakfast was really extensive. They do a good chicken Caesar salad and apparently my partner told me his breakfast when he returned alone was great. We were served by Kristen... More

We have been here twice, and as my mother-in-law would say... "it was nothing to write home about". The only reason they get any stars would be for : +the nice waitress the 2nd time for the morning/brunch time (lady in her 50s/60s, seemed like she'd been there awhile, she hugged and kissed other regular customers, and took care of...

We always come here when in Tampa! Just a cool little diner with killer eats! My hubby is hooked on their Ham and Swiss Omelets with Home Fries. Always cooked perfectly and so fresh. My fave is the sky high Turkey Club! Made just like in NY..love it! Great service, clean, and always filling!

Their specialty is skillets, and we enjoyed a Chorizo skillet. Frankly, unless you're very hungry, the skillets can be shared by two people easily. The accompanying coffee and toast were good. The service was good, but as other reviewers have said the place could use a makeover. This place seems to be a favorite of the locals and for good... More

We were here because are friends had recommended it, the food was excellant and we would definitely come back for that, but the interior is in need of a complete make over. The service was very good.

we wanted a dinner out, but not too far to drive. Well, I am so glad we tried the Garden Grille Café. There are plenty of choices for dinner, My husband had the liver and onions, and I had linguini with shrimp scampi. Both was very good, and we would both have it again. There are a number of other...
