Always a super long wait here but I don't feel like it's really worth the wait. Basically it's a better IHOP but with a huge line and cafeteria style shared seating.

Decided to eat on the outside patio and regretted it. Basically it was filthy. The cushions looked like they hadn't been washed in years. Not to mention a swarm of flies decided to harass us and land on pretty much all our food. Everywhere you look there is dirt & grime. I guess the table was adequately clean but if a semi-clean ambiance is important to you go elsewhere. It really doesn't inspire confidence that their kitchen is adequately cleaned if what the customers can see is filthy. Food was alright (as in on par with Denny's. The strawberries were at least a notch up) . Had the strawberry pancakes.

We came in a party of 4 mid-morning on a Friday and since we had a hungry 3 year old, we chose the immediate inside seating that was available, skipping the 25 minute wait for the outside patio. if you have the choice the outside patio was by far the better atmosphere, as the inside is loud and overpowers any conversation. The servers hustle but are minimally friendly, the food is basic but good (we had the banana pancakes, pumpkin spice pancakes and omelet with all the fixings). The one thing we could not get past (1 of our party is retail bakery manager) - the place really needs a good cleaning and scrubbing down. The floors and walls were dirty, the tabletop was barely wiped down from the previous party, and everything from the creamer jug, sugar dispenser, ketchup and menus at our table seemed to have been coated with a veneer of sticky maple syrup.

Best hash browns and cakes in town. Wish they had mamosas though. Service always prompt and friendly.

I have only been here once. I saw a roach climb into the space they keep the ice in. This was a few years ago but it left a bad impression. It was so highly recommend to me, this experience shattered all the positive things I was told. Hopefully now they are roach free. Only one way to find out.

I love eating here, the food is always perfect. If you come on a weekend morning, be prepared to wait 45 minutes. However it's worth the wait. My favorite is the beef hash, with 3 poached eggs medium, and two pancakes.

I had the Manhattan omelette and pancakes and it was good but not memorable. The coffee is weak. The staff is prompt and friendly. If you're going to sit outside, wait on a table with view but prepared to wait

I thought it was good, but nothing great. We were visiting from Vegas and walked here from the beach. We sat outside and had a small view of the ocean. The tables are very close together making it hard to walk around people eating. We got our drinks pretty quickly but the waitress did not show up to take our order for a while later. I ordered the JDs french toast which is french toast with strawberries and bananas. The presentation was nice but the french toast was luke warm and no butter was served with it. The waitress did not return to check on us until after we were finished. It's a basic breakfast place with average to slow service. Definitely cannot recommend. Several nice places a few blocks further on Manhattan Beach Blvd.
