Concierge.com's insider take:
Taking its design cues from The Brady Bunch, this Stephen Starr enterprise has a see-through fireplace, fieldstone walls, and swivel chairs—and an equally familiar menu. Work on an order of monkey bread while deciding between American classics such as fried chicken and waffles and traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The no-reservations policy and location just west of Independence Park guarantees lines of impatient locals and map-toting tourists on the weekends. But the BMW pancakes (caramelized banana, maple syrup, and toasted walnut) and protein plates (ham, turkey sausage, and applewood bacon with cheddar scrambled eggs) are worth the wait.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 11:30 am to midnight, Sundays 10 am to 3 pm.
