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

Cristy's Luncheonette has very good food with reasonable prices. They had a wide variety of pancakes. The staff was pleasant and helpful. They came highly recommended by a local.

ask a local and you will hear the name Christy's. I think it is newer management but they have kept the history alive. personally, I have only been there for breakfast and brunch, which seem to be the busiest times - good luck getting parking. it is busy in the summer when the tourist crowd is there and nearly as...

By far the best pancakes ever and with so many varieties. I had apple and my friend had blueberry. Small restaurant, atmosphere a little dark and crowded. Good service, good food, and reasonable price. The pancakes are big, and you have your choice of how many. I got 2 and had trouble finishing them
