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.

DE- lish!

This place is usually crowded and has a wait, and for a good reason. The food is really good. I usually get the 1, 2, 3 which is a pancake ( huge, taking up the whole plate), two eggs, and three strips of bacon (or sausage). I can eat it and not eat again until dinner time. The servers are... read more

We were in high hopes of having a delicious meal upon visiting this place. I had the protein pancake and a two egg omelet. My friend had the blintz and hash browns. One thing that surprised me is that syrup is served cold. Warm syrup is a must for me especially in a fairly expensive pancake restaurant. I did get... More

We had family visiting and we wanted to take them to a local place for breakfast. We read the reviews and we thought we would give Batter Up a try. It was almost 11 so we thought there would hardly be any line. When we got there, the wait was at least 45 minutes. 45 minutes after, we were perusing... More

The gluten free pancakes were awesome! Too bad we didn't plan our return trip to include another stop; I would have gotten a stack to go. My friend had "the best omelet" he's ever eaten.

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 :)
