    Not great, but pretty solid. Think omelettes over eggs Benedict. Keep it simple.

    The food was boring and simple. I had a steak and a waiter forget to even ask how I want to have it.

    Make sure to check out some of the vintage photos on the walls. A short history lesson of NYC before WW II.

    So I ordered three eggs deluxe (comes with 3 meats) but I only wanted bacon, I said I might add sausage. I ask to add sausage later and now I'd be charged for a side...REALLY? Why wasn't I told?! -_-

    My salad tasted soapy and my sandwich didn't taste like anything. I know this could have just been an off night, but everything on my bill was more expensive than it said on the menu.

    The waiter mumbles and talks like Lemmy of Motorhead. Could not understand a single word he said.

    Get takeout at the end of the bar stool area. Quick! You can order what you want, on menu or not. They happen to make a killer egg and cheddar on a roll.

    I used to go here all the time until I found a human nail (or toenail) in my milkshake... no lie, i was horrified. I wish I could go back but the memory haunts me.
