    Good mac 'n' cheese

    I ate there the other day with family. I really enjoyed my side item of mac 'n' cheese. I would just order that as a meal alone. The waitress was super friendly. We sat on the front patio & were a bit squished in because of another large party. We didn't complain, but she felt bad & gave us desserts on the house! Very nice of her to do, especially since we're in Manhattan & we're used to being squished, so it was no biggie.

    Skip it

    Kitschy country decor did not bode well. Pulled BBQ chicken sandwich contained hunks of sinew and bone in a ketchupy sauce. I was not happy with it at all. The homemade potato chips were greasy, but not bad because of the crispy edges. Beers are kind of expensive given the decor/environment. Service was so-so. Skip it.

    Just went there after searching for a good breakfast place online. We each had an omelet and they were very runny inside. I barely ate mine. We dine out a lot and were quite disappointed.

    More than Good Enough

    Great, reliable home-style cooking, and a friendly, laid-back vibe. Occasionally the specials are a little too adventurous for their own good. But I'm a big fan of the turkey dinner, the turkey club, the chopped salad, the griddled cornbread, the meatloaf, the soups, any of the veggies, and pretty much any pie or cake they have. The reasonable prices are a big plus. I'm not sure about some folks' bad impressions. My experiences have been so good, I tend to think that if someone doesn't appreciate this place, I'd just as soon not see them there. I will say I wouldn't go here for Sunday brunch, but that goes for pretty much any place I like on the UWS, and that's because of crowds. But I eat dinner here very often, and I wouldn't like my neighborhood as much without this place.

    Good Enough for Who?

    After hearing all of the hype about Good Enough to Eat, I finally gave it a go for Sunday Brunch. After standing outside in the cold for 40 minutes, we were finally seated at our table. I ordered the Pumpkin French Toast and honestly, I was not impressed. The fruit compote on top was a few cranberries and cold pear pieces that were thrown on like an afterthought. The french toast was soggy and barely tasted like pumpkin. What was most disappointing to me though was that they would not make their omelettes with egg whites. What respectable NY establishment doesn't serve egg whites? In sum, Good Enough to Eat was not Good Enough for me.

    Not Good Enough To Eat!

    I had heard such good things about this place but, after eating here this summer I was unpleasantly surprised. First, they won't take your name. They make you wait in line for a half hour to hold your place. If that is not an annoying enough policy my Scottish friend and I both ended up with royal red sunburns while waiting for a table. The food was also NOT good. I ordered a waffle and it was dry and I only ate a few bites. My friend ordered a chocolate chip and peanut butter pancake which was actually good and the biscuits were good as well but, I have had better. For the prices, attitude and mediocre food I will never eat here again!

    Friendly neighborhood hangout

    I've lived near GETE for five years and pop in frequently, usually for weekday breakfast. It's at its best then quiet, relaxed, and friendly. One can sit over a cup of coffee and a newspaper for an hour, and no one minds. The breakfast menu is tasty and reasonably priced. I've had a more mixed experience at lunch and dinner the prices are higher and some of the dishes are oddly assorted or too heavy. At lunch and dinner, I've generally been happiest when I've ordered one of the specials. The service, though usually attentive, can be slapdash and overfamiliar. Don't hesitate to speak up if you've been charged a price higher than the one printed on the menu! The servers don't always check. Avoid the long lines at weekday lunch and weekend brunch by going for a weekday breakast or dinner.
