I've visited this state park and restaurant several times. The main feature of the restaurant is their DIY all-you-can-eat pancakes. They bring you two different kinds of batter, multi-grain and regular. Then you get to cook them on a griddle that is built into the middle of your table. You can order 'toppings' to go with your pancakes. Each topping... More

Nice place to have breakfast before you take a swim in the beautiful springs. All you can eat pancakes with different toppings. French toast also very nice. Just a fun place with your children. Be early because it is always very busy.

This is right next the spring at De Leon Springs Park, and it was very good. My wife was smart enough to have a reservation because there was a long wait line to get in. The place has a strong country-style feel to it, so the place wasn't particularly fancy or anything. It was on par with Cracker Barrel but... More

Visited on a hot humid day in July. The restaurant is in the DeLeon Springs Park and entrance is $6.00 per car.There is a lot of parking and it's a short walk to the restaurant.Make sure you put your name down when you arrive as the wait is around an hour.During that time you can take the boat tour or...

This place is awful!!!!! Pancakes taste like box brand! No air conditioning!! You sit at a table with a high heated grill in the middle barely having room for your plate.. And sweat it out while you cook your own pancakes, and/or eggs. If you want fruit to cook in your pancakes... It's more $ i had banana.., got about... More

Cook your own breakfast. Very cool. You sit down at a table that has a huge "hotplate" in the middle. You order your ingredients, pancake, french toast, eggs, sausage. They bring the batter and stuff to you and you cook it on the grill. You can get bacon as well, but they cook that in the back. Was really cool.... More

Have been here too many times to count-grill is in the middle of the table and you can make your own pancakes right there. Years ago you could also fry your own bacon but for safety reasons it's now made in the kitchen and brought to your table-a fun family experience.

We started going here about 20 years ago. Back then it was kind of unknown, but that has certainly changed. Now it can be very busy, with wait times of an hour or more on weekend mornings. The State Park opens at 8am, we try to get there soon after that or risk a long wait. The Park is full... More
