Worth the price

Our food was only average but at the price it deserves a very good rating. The place is clean and service was good. Thought they would have a better variety of pancakes since this is a pancake house. Would be a good place to feed a family on a budget.

Nice selection for breakfast from chipped beef to omelets and pancakes. Was surprised that the strawberries weren't fresh and that hashbrowns weren't included with meals. Waitresses were fast and friendly and meals were served hot. Our only distraction was Mr. Happy doing the cooking and his loud corrections to what was possibly a new waitress.

The food was decent but had old strawberries on the waffles that tasted like jello and rotten fruit. The waiters were friendly and service was quick. The eggs were great and had great texture with good sausage and fresh orange juice. Overall average restaurant. Good place for a last minute family breakfast.

All the food here is first-rate. The place is clean and neat, and the service is good. We have eaten here several times, and it's a place we go back to year after year. It's only open for breakfast and lunch, so don't plan on going in the evening. Also, it's a cash place--no checks, credit cards, or debit cards.... More

We loved this place for a scrumptious, filling breakfast before our swim training at the nearby pool. Hot, fluffy pecan pancakes with lovely (proper) butter that melted in the mouth. Great service. Plenty of coffee. Much preferred it to other nearby restaurants - by miles.

First, the place is clean and new, and that is nice. There is a nice menu which features things other than pancakes. The service was somewhat slow, at times it was quick and then at other times it was as if the waitress had went on break. However, I do believe that if you call yourself "Island Pancake House", that... More

The Eggs Benedict is what you want to order if you don't want the traditional Pancakes. Friendly fast service.
