Well it wasn't the worst just average.

I cannot say this was the worst place I had ever eaten but had there been a McDonalds next door I would have been much better off going there. The staff was nice and we certainly did not have to wait long. The staff are extremely talkative as in way too talkative. The eggs were not very tasty but... read more

Hadn't been there in awhile so decided to try it - everything was just ok. The eggs were fine but the pancakes tasted like something you could cook in toaster. The waitress was very friendly and quick. This place could use a little update and cleaning of cobwebs and open back up refreshed and ready. For now it's just ok

The food was very good with fast friendly service. I would go there again and try some of the other items on the menu.

We went here on Sunday March 15, 2015. We wanted a good breakfast to start our day and thought this would be perfect. Upon walking in my wife and I both got the same sense of TOTAL RUDENESS!! We sat down and the RUDENESS continued. ALL the waitresses were RUDE and down right crappy. We ordered our breakfast but I... More

For the price you get a huge amount of really good food. The staff/ servers do fine. I don't need a smile or hug when I arrive. The restaurant itself is out dated but no big deal. Enjoy the day, the beach, the food, and the swaying palms!! Count it all joy!!

we came for breakfast on a Monday morning. Sign says seat yourself at a clean table. Stood there a second looking for a clean table, the waitress came up and rudely says seat yourself. No smiles or how are you, from any of the waitress. Food was ok, nothing spectacular. We are a younger couple on vacation, feel as though... More

We had originally intended to go to the Heavenly Biscuit, but it was a 30-40 minute wait to basically wait on myself and possibly not even have a seat. So, instead we went a little further down the beach and went to Island Pancakes! What a great decision! The pancakes were exceptional and the ham was delicious and huge! Definitely... More

Being locals on Fort Myers Beach, we come here for breakfast every so often. The servers are especially friendly and cheerful. The menu consists of typical breakfast fare, and entrees are always freshly prepared and hot when served. We think the pancakes are some of the best on the beach. Prices are very reasonable. Island Pancake House does not accept... More

She took our drink order then our order and that was the last we saw of her. We twice went to get condiments we asked for. It was NOT real busy I just think she was NOT... More
