They have the most happy people working here. From host(ess) to busboys and servers. The food was amazing! Waffles, eggs, granola, omelettes and the homemade biscuits. It was so good we went back again the next weekend.

I'm not sure, looks like first come first served. I'd call and check--especially for a larger group they would probably take a reservation. Very customer service oriented.
