"It's Thanksgiving and I'm visiting family here again and we figured, "why not try the Crystal Springs place'?"

For Thanksgiving morning, this place was neither crowded nor empty. We all had breakfast - two corn beef hashes, a chicken fried steak, and a Ben's Special (for me; which I'd forgotten I'd had last time!). Service was awesome and the chefs were great with the egg orders, we were seated in a quieter part (the nook) at the back of the restaurant, great coffee, and the food really hit the spot. We even made sure to substitute some of the sides for the Lingonberry Swedish pancakes (for $1 more) for a little something sweet.

10/10; will be back sometime again~"

"Party of 18. Prompt friendly service. Coffee cup always refilled. Substitute pancakes and toast available. Hash browns really crispy (buttery). For a large group food came wryly and no orders left out. Serving staff knows what's up. Definitely recommend for brunch and I'm definitely coming back."

"This is a great little home style dinner. The BF and I stopped in for a quick breakfast today and we both were very pleased. It's tucked away in a cute little shopping complex and they have a lovely outdoor seating area that's sunny a quiet. You a get a lot of bang for your buck here. The servings a big and the wait staff is super friendly and accommodating. I order the eggs bene which can be hit or miss at most breakfast places. Even high end brunch locations have a hard time Getting it right. But Neal's was spot on with their rendition. The muffin was perfectly toasted, ham was crispy, eggs cooked perfectly and the sauce was ample and creamy. I do prefer a bit more bit to my hollandaise but this was still one of the better bene's I've eaten. The BF got the corn beef has ( they even do it extra crispy if that's your style) and a side of biscuits and gravy. He loved both dishes which is amazing because he usually complains about something. I'm not a fan of biscuits and gravy, the biscuits are alway dry and the gravy tastes like paste, but this one actually had me going back for a second bite (maybe a third). Overall this is a solid breakfast joint and we plan to make it our new weekend breakfast spot."

"I was in town for a dance festival, found this place online, read good reviews. As soon as we got there good things started happening! Lol first a friendly welcome, waitress came to the table instantly, very friendly in a genuine way! Which is also important! She asked if I wanted coffee and although I'm not a big coffee drinker, I just so happened to be in the mood so I accepted. I also ordered orange juice. The coffee was surprisingly delicious! The orange juice was unexpectedly fresh squeezed! I ordered a "low fat popeye omelet, which is made of egg whites, spinach, mushrooms & jack cheese. Comes with homefries or hashbrowns and buckwheat pancakes. I chose homefries. Omg! Let me tell you this was an excellent choice because it was awesome! Everything was delicious! The portions are large too! I can't say enough good things about this place! I would definitely recommend and I plan on returning in the future! Oh I almost forgot, my daughter had apple cinnamon crepes, also the bomb!"
