The service was good and food was great too. For me they give too much but I don't eat like I use to eat. The prices are average. It was good.

Love the Betty Boop 50's bar/restaurant area...love the corn beef hash!

Food was amazing but we did wait an hour for our food to get to us. I'm a Patient person and I understood that they were shot handed. They have a hiring sign on the door.

Not bad! Food is good.

Not very many places to eat around the area. This is definitely the spot when we are in town. Good service...good food...good prices!

This is what a breakfast diner is supposed to be like! No frills, good food, massive portions, and not expensive. If breakfast and conversation is your jam, this is the place for you.

Huge portions, low prices. Service was slightly slow but good overall. Pancakes were tasty but a little dry. Corned beef hash and sausage gravy were very good.

Try the home made corned beef hash! They make a great breakfast. My kids love coming here for breakfast.

Breakfast was great, portions were good size too! Our blueberry pancakes were dry and a little well done but definitely edible, they were huge too! Good value for the food. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. If we’re ever in the area, we’ll definitely stop in again.

A new favorite for us! Waitress was very nice and even got us some corned beef hash to try. It was delicious and fresh. The pancakes were huge and fluffy. Our waitress was very accommodating and attentive. We will definitely be back.

Great service, very friendly staff and excellent food. This restaurant is a quick stop off the I95 and easily accessible. All our food was very tasty especially the home made corned beef hash. The pancakes were delicious and are the size of a large dinner plate. Homemade muffins and biscuits were very good as well.

When I lived near the Purple Cow my wife was wrapping up college and money was tight. We really appreciated being able to eat good food at a reasonable price at the Purple Cow. Bonus points for the waitress who worked the late shift. You had to smile at this girl because she was always covered in hickies. LOL.

The food was exactly what I needed. I was driving down the highway and didn't want some fast food. Instead I got a delicious breakfast that tasted like homemade. The wheat bread that came with my breakfast was exceptionally good for a diner type place.

The food here is still great, but man, they've been struggling with a staffing shortage for YEARS and it makes me wonder what kind of a place this is to work at if they can't keep people. Most recently, they had a full house and only 2 waitresses for the whole place. The kitchen lost our order and our waitress had them rush it. Despi ... read more

Stopped here for a quick breakfast, and to echo other reviewers the pancakes are fantastic. Large but very fluffy. The interior is nice too, and my daughter kept pointing out all the different things she saw.

I have been eating at the Purple Cow in the summers, since they were only in Canaan. I have only ever eaten their chocolate chip pancakes!! I swear to God.

It's called a house of pancakes for a reason - get the pancakes! They're HUGE and you definitely get your money's worth of an affordable breakfast. One pancake should do it. But not just any one...

When they put pancakes in front of my grandsons and they cannot clean the plate you know you got your moneys worth!

It is ok but Saturday morning is not the day to go; too disorganized. The lines of people is a normal thing but they don't keep a good "who's next" list and a host person should be more active in that plus wiping down tables to keep things moving better. Noisy lady barking out info but just wasn't fun. Sorry. I will go back though.
