Mediocre food, poor value, service that ranges from unacceptable to average, an atmosphere that ranges from total chaos to funeral like, and an owner named ??George? who smiles right up until the moment he has to actually manage his business instead of pretending to be everyone??s ??friend? at which time the faux smile gives way to arrogance, and the true colors come out. Take a pass on this place

Their breakfast is delicious. I love the pancakes and depending on the server you get some exceptional service. George, the owner, is a fantastic guy. He or his son Peter always greets you with a smile and takes you immediately to your table. He's very generous and sincere. I love Grannys.

A couple of years ago, my wife had the audacity to hit what must be a raw nerve and commit what must be the house cardinal sin and requested a substitution of cottage cheese for French fries. She was told by our server and this is a quote ??Oh no?George is very strict about that, we can??t do that ?? . I would have gladly paid the difference, which in my estimation, would have amounted to all of 50 cents, but neither the server, or the owner gave that as an option

George, the owner who was standing 5 feet away, looked over at us with a scowl as if we had urinated on his carpet.
Feeling disappointed confused and uncomfortable, we opted to just have coffee, move on to another establishment, and return when the air was less thick, and the level of hostility had passed

As we approached the register to leave and pay, my wife was in a notch above a whisper, expressing her disappointment. We were greeted at the register by George the owner shouting ??NO?.YOU are terrible!? and expressing his glee that we were leaving.

As I mentioned, we had know the owner by name for years, so I made a call shortly after we left to try to determine what had gone so terribly wrong, and perhaps mend fences.
Instead,. George expressed that he felt we had unmitigated disrespect for his establishment by requesting a menu substitution, that complying with requests that cut into his margin by fifty cents was out of the question and that if we didn??t like it, he would rather we not come back.

I expressed my opinion that I believed he had lost his mind, hung up, and complied with his request not to return, as we have not be4en back, nor will we.

Prior to this incident, we found the food to be a decent value for the price, of ??OK? quality, and the service anywhere from ??good? (never great) to ??poor? depending on the day and time you arrive

We tolerated the occasional ??poor? service because frankly, when you are having a bowl of soup, a burger, it is a minor annoyance to have sub par service?who really cares?

I do however; consider a business owner with an underlying contempt for his own customers, which can be brought out with only a minor speed bump, unacceptable.
I suggest taking a pass on ??the original Granny??s?

Known for there pancakes, but the breakfast's that they have to offer are great and the price is even better. They have a Ham off the Bone special with the thickest piece of fried ham I have ever had along with eggs, hash browns and either pancakes or toast, yum just thinking about it makes me want to head over there! They are also open for lunch and dinner, dinner time is a bit slower and their specials are good and cheap!
