Great variety of pancakes

Group of four went for breakfast. Three had pancakes and one had the french toast. They offer many varieties of each and everyone enjoyed the one they ordered. I can attest to the Blueberry-Rasberry Crunch. I normally like my pancakes plain, but this topping was great. Our server was very... read more

It's okay for a break while shopping at the outlets. Wouldn't make a special trip. It's also a good place for husbands to sit while waiting for shoppers.

If you like Reese's pieces or macadamia nuts and chocolate in your pancakes then this is the place for you. Huge selection of pancake flavors to choose from. Otherwise just a country style diner. Surprised at how many people seem to rave about the place. It's a good family pancake diner that is just ok.

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 the food we went with wings,... More

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

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!
