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

We ventured out to a "new" little restaurant for breakfast this year, and we're very leased with the food here! Downside was the waitress, Heather, was very rude to tables of people like us, who are not regulars or snow birds. She said the cook was too busy to add bacon to my veggie omelet. Could hear (and see) that... More

If you are on Fort Myers beach and like breakfast I would highly recommend the Island Pancake house. Their home cooked meals are supported by a great serving staff and a clean restaurant.

We go here for breakfast on our way to Edison Mall and my husband has the same breakfast every time! I have to say the food is excellent value for money, the staff are so friendly, especially Mitzie who serves us every year.

Had breakfast there and it was ok! Food is mediocre and so is service. We had typical breakfast food and did get full. No refills on coffee or drinks offered

Food is very Good for either Breakfast or Lunch. Portions are HUGE, they do not short change you here. Coffee unfortunately was really bad as it was at the other breakfast areas on the Island. They really need a Starbuck's on Ft. Myers Beach.
