Description: We are a full service restaurant, with table service. We use real eggs for our omelets with nothing but fresh ingredients inside them. Our buttermilk pancakes are NOT made with a mix. We use actual buttermilk, eggs, butter, vanilla... We are kid friendly and encourage people to bring their children to color on our big dry erase wall. We have fun and love making friends with our customers. We're not fancy. Don't claim to be fancy and don't want to be fancy. But we try to make you feel welcome and want you to leave feeling full and happy.

They do not take reservations, and the wait is worth it. It is very spacious inside; feels like your large dining room. The pancakes are the best; do not let the pictures on the menu fool you. Actual sizes are huge; about 6 inches in diameter and very fluffy. Service was good and attentive; coffee cups are never empty. Clients... More

OK, so here is the bottom line. We ate here for breakfast so cannot comment on other meal times. Excellent menu selections. Great pancakes and omelettes. Friendly staff. Adequate service. Not a big place so you might encounter a wait for a table.

This place is pricey for Fresno. Pancakes and omelets were okay. We were almost done with our meal when a small cockroach climbed onto our table. The server and the manager apologized profusely, but didn't do anything else to make up for it. Not coming back, thanks.

I love this place! It has a wonderfully relaxed environment, fabulous staff, and excellent food! The Banana Bread French Toast is my favorite! This is definitely my go-to breakfast location :)

We love Batter Up. It is a great place with wonderful food and the friendliest service. It can get busy, but it is worth the wait. I absolutely love the blue cornmeal pancakes with a touch of honey. Also, the chicken chili is excellent in/on anything. We had the chicken chili omelette but I've also had it on the burger... More

For our last meal before packing into our place in the Sierra, we sought a restaurant early on a Sunday morning for a hearty breakfast. We were not disappointed. We each ordered 2 eggs and 2 pancakes, not realizing that the pancakes were gigantic! The eggs were cooked according to our requests and the pancakes were very light and airy.... More

After reading a review of this restaurant in our local paper, we visited Batter Up Pancakes for a late breakfast this morning. We had an all around great experience! It was busy at 11AM and we waited about 15 minutes. We were immediately greeted by friendly, courteous staff and this was also true of our server and the owners who... More

When we arrived we had to wait an hour to get a table, once seated we were told you had to go upto the tills to place your order. Knowing what the portion sizes in America are like, I... More
