Rated 1 out of 5 by from I arrived at Chicago Waffle at/near 1:30 and my family arrived shortly after. Starting with the waitress: She was extra nice and kind, very helpful at multiple levels, which is why I happily gave her a $12.00 tip. Only improvement she could have done was to ensure hotter coffer, it was too warm to my taste. However, upon request she did provide me with a very hot cup of coffee, problem solved. Feedback on the Food and other staff: The food could have been MORE hotter, as my baked or smothered potatoes, from ordering a skillet, were not hot, more like a tad above warm. I did not want to complain or send it back so I did not mention that I would have enjoyed more hotter food. Next: The restaurant closes at 3pm. I was aware of that prior to selecting this restaurant. The real issues to me began at this point: After I paid my bill and tip, the service went to an all-time low. It was 2:40pm (which I checked my cell phone time) - A guy walked up to the TV that we were sitting directly under and was clearly watch and turned it off (but left the TV near the BAR on). This guy did not say one word to me or my family, he just turned it off. He did not bother to put two words together to say, “May I turn off this TV, if you are not watching it?” He said nothing to us at all. Again, it is 2:40pm. As he walked away, I said, “ Excuse me Sir, we were still watching the TV.” He said, “We are about to close at 3pm.” I said, “We are still customers, plus it is not technically 3pm, can you please turn the TV back on?” He honored my request with an attitude. About 2 minutes went by and he then began to clean the floors and tables, which is understandable. However I did not appreciate or expect this guy to start sweeping the floors right up next to my table were we were still clearing eating. Have he ever heard of air floating dust, traveling lint! Next he started mopping the floor all around us, and on top of that he mop had an bad order/smell, that even my child instantly said, "Mom, what is that smell, it stinks." It was not a smell you wanted to smell while eating food! The guy had a clear disposition on him like we (my family) were no longer welcomed to finish enjoying our meal without any interruptions. His body language spoke very well by saying, “It is time to go and I am not planning to say one half of a second over 3:00pm!” We actually exited the restaurant at 2:58pm, not a moment past 3:00pm. This was the very first time we ate at this restaurant and we felt grossly disrespected at multiple levels, for no reason.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food was excellent. The service was decent but I had to ask for some things several times, otherwise I would have given them 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good service and food, although my crepes weren’t warm and tender this time. Last time, they were better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Food was fantastic! However this rating could have been a five with the exception of a few things. 1. The biscuits were burn. 2. Service was just ok and they forgot to bring my sons order out with the rest of ours. They did bring it out quickly once we let them know, but we had to let them know. It is common practice to ask if everyone is ok prior to leaving the table when u bring I ut the food. 3. It was not the cleanest restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT skirt steak & eggs cooked just as we asked (both different). Both steaks were very tender and JUICY! The fresh fruit plate was just like Summer on a Platter- ALL the fruit was ripe/SWEET!! (Pineapple Banana Orange Cantaloupe Honeydew Strawberries) Our waiter Stephan was fabulous and made everything right!!! The pancakes were so fluffy and the coffee was strong- just how we love it!(I'm not too much of a red meat eater, so when I do have meat I usually go for a steak or restaurant burger. This was really good!)Thank you for participating in this program...we tried Waffles because we were in the area and took a chance. Our lucky day it was! Ordered a fruit plate for my elderly mom and she LOVED it!! The food at the other patrons tables all looked great & I can't wait to go back to try something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We are in town for the weekend and excited to eat here. I ordered a skillet and specifically said TWICE, no onions or peppers PLEASE!! My skillet came out with onions. Very apologetic my waitress wanted to take it back but I dont like to send food back. So we were offered a complimentary side. I chose bacon.She brought out 2 fresh delicious pieces and 2 very dried out burnt pieces that were turned over to hide the black side. I was not impressed but my brother enjoyed it so I wont be too upset about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Food was bad. No taste at all. Then I ordered steak and eggs and was given a hamburger patty vs steak. Waiter was kind enough to replace. Coffee was gross too. For serving intelegensia coffee, worst preparation of a quality coffee
