After about a 20 minute wait on a Monday holiday morning, we came away thinking it was well worth it. The food was excellent as was the service. As our dining guest noted, the buckwheat pancakes are "amazing."

Came across Uncle Bill's on our recent stay. Yummy food and fast service. We actually had their omelets and the flavor was great.This place gets busy so get there early. They know their regulars and anticipate their needs. They also bring in a large staff to handle everyone. You won't want to miss this place.

I have been to many pancake houses and this is the best by a landslide. The cozy charm with the ocean air is enough to make you want to sit there and eat two orders of pancakes. But the food....to die for! No matter what flavor of pancakes you get, order whip cream on top

Cozy pancake place! Been here several times and never disappointed when I leave. This time I ordered waffles, instead of pancakes. They were delish! Not as big and fluffy as a Belgium waffle, but the taste and texture were really spot on. I also ordered a hot chocolate. It was the best!! Topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. Perfect... More

I am finishing up a cross country roadtrip and wanted to sleep in, but was still in a breakfast mood. Then I stumbled upon Uncle Bill's, which is the best breakfast spot I have found anywhere I have gone from coast to coast. UB's is a great little spot right up from the beach and serves breakfast all day long.... More

Uncle Bills is a very good breakfast. Our party had chocolate chip pancakes & scrambled eggs, sourdough French toast, Cinnamon Raisin waffles, banana but pancakes, and corned beef hash and fried eggs. There was issue with an overcooked waffle but it was quickly rectified. The corned beef hash was excellent as were the hash browns. The service was quick and... More

This place is a couple of steps near the water! Lots of people there to eat. Food is good & at great price. Only default, servers are a bit slow since there's lots of customers
