Good Deal. Good food & Funky

Have not been here for years since it was The Dolly Madison. Completly different atmosphere. They apperantly do a very good breakfast. All tables set up with Maple Syrup. little funky as the building and bar area have a good feel, but feels like a Vermont Diner with the fake wood tables. As for... read more

I have to be gluten free and there were no variations on the menu. Come on Cristy's, get up to speed with people's NEEDS!!!! Pancakes were great (at least my husband said so). Eggs were good, HUGE portions! Home friends were terrible, unless you like black potatoes and alot of black pieces mixed in. It is like they cleaned the... More

When a sign says "Please seat yourself", you do. There is no need for two waitress to be nasty, rude and chase you off a table. While I have enjoyed eating there in the past, never again will I step in the place. There is zero excuse for that king of behavior by people who depend on customers. Plus there... More

Numerous flavors of lattes. Many varieties of pancakes and eggs benedict. Liked whole pot of coffee left on table! Good service. Open for lunch and dinner too. Very family friendly.

Pancakes are my favorite breakfast food, and every time I try a new breakfast place I always have to try the pancakes over anything else. I have yet to find a restaurant that tops Cristy's pancakes. They are cooked to perfection, fluffy and flavorful, not at all dense or dry. And they have so many different specialty pancake flavors to... More

Always a treat for everyone in the family. Hubby gets the veggie omelette, daughter enjoys the gigantic chocolate chip pancakes dusted with sugar, and both sons like the hand made burgers! I like the fried ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate syrup! Always have a delicious home cooked tasting meal!

WHAT A FIND.. We have lived in this area for years and years. Went to the car wash and tried making conversation with a few people near by. I said, "I am hungry." The man closest to me said "I got the Christy's." I had pancakes with apple and raspberry. My husband had the freshest eggs and bacon with home... More

My wife and I returned to Cristy's for a late (10am) breakfast last week. We both ordered the pancake/eggs combination. My wife ordered 2 blueberry pancakes with two eggs. I ordered 1 banana oatmeal pancake with 2 eggs. In addition we ordered 2 pancakes as takeout. The pancakes were light, fluffy and absolutely delicious. The eggs were done to perfection... More

We are regulars here(weekly) and I thought I'd rate it again since it's been awhile. Food is still great (especially the chowder and chili). Portions are more then adequate and the prices are fair. If your looking for ambiance and 5 star service your probably going to be disappointed, but if your looking for a great meal at a fair... More

We were heading up to Nantucket and after dealing with traffic, and a long drive we took the exit to get gas and my wife wanted to stop at a drug store. While waiting for her I saw Crisy's and the lot was packed even though it was later on in the afternoon. I convinced her to try it. We... More
